*Since the number of new infections in Tokyo seems to be almost the number of the previous day,

(Because the deadline for the number of new infections on the day is from 9:00 am the day before to 9:00 am on the day)

* In addition, the number of infected people in each prefecture at the present time (19:00) seems to be like this! ↓

<Summary of today’s “Major News Related to COVID-19 in Japan”>




The Japanese government seems to want the people to remove their masks, and each news site is crowded with mask-related news every day …!


Under such circumstances, the Japanese government seems to have officially changed the basic policy for dealing with COVID-19.

It will be duplicated with the one I summarized for the past week, but this time it’s official, so I will summarize it again!


<Basic policy for the Japanese government’s measures against COVID-19>

◆Scene where it is not necessary to wear a mask and it is recommended not to wear it especially in summer ◆
 ・(Indoor) There is a distance of 2m or more with the people around you + no conversation
 ・(Outdoor) There is a distance from the people around you
 ・(Outdoor) Almost no conversation even if there is no distance

◆Scenes where you do not need to wear a mask at school◆
 ・Physical education class
 ・Extracurricular activities
  (*Sports club activities involving contact follow the guidelines created by each competition group)

◆About wearing a mask for children◆
 ・(Children under 2 years old) It is not recommended to wear a mask (= should be removed)
 ・(2 years old and over-before entering elementary school) No mask is required at nursery schools, etc.

◆About border measures◆
 ・From June 1st, classify other countries into 3 categories based on the positive rate.
 ・Immigration from some countries does not require even waiting at home, let alone test at the airport
 ・But when you leave Japan, make sure to test it.
 ・From June 1st, the upper limit of the number of immigrants will be relaxed (10,000 → 20,000)

◆About vaccination◆
 ・We will start the 4th vaccination
 ・(Target ①) More than 5 months have passed since the third vaccination, and
 ・(Target ②) People aged 60 and over + 18-59 years old with a high risk of becoming severe


For a long time, it is hard to tell what wave it is after, and clusters in kindergartens and schools have been extremely frequent, 

↑”The Japanese government will inform the board of education nationwide about the idea of ​​wearing masks at school.”


→but even so, the Japanese government seems to put pressure on educational institutions to ensure that they do not wear masks, asking “Absolutely comply”



A child is infected at school or kindergarten, brought home and the family is infected …
There are many things like that, but at this rate, regulations may be looser than influenza.





↓ In addition, there was such an article! ↓






And this article↓


How long time the materials such as paper, cloth, plastic, etc. need to eliminating the risk when coronavirus is attached, and how effective disinfection is.
If you are interested, please take a look!




And here’s a trial calculation of how many people in Japan are actually receiving medical treatment.

(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…
It’s increasing every day, but there are days when it’s decreasing …!





It seems that the Japanese government’s “warrior who absolutely wants to relax” spirit will proceed at a tremendous speed …

It hasn’t been so long since the news came out, but it seems that the acceptance of foreign tourist tours has already started and it arrived today on the evening of May 24th.



The first participants from the United States arrive at Narita Airport, and it seems that Japanese government will be accepting foreign tourists for the first time in two years from here.
(* Number of recent new infections in the United States = 100,000)


In addition, this pilot tour accepts 50 people who have completed the third vaccination, and it seems that they will visit 12 areas such as Iwate and Fukuoka.


I would like foreigners who are interested in Japan to come, but it is a little strange to accept it without taking any measures and without reducing the number of infected people.


If I’m a foreigner …
I can’t help but want to go there, but I definitely don’t want to go to a country full of viruses





Please be careful when you go out!
