The number of infected people in Tokyo is ..
Today is Saturday, so the total for the week came out, but the total for the week is about twice as much as last week, and it is close to 100,000 people …


In Tokyo, it is calculated that 1 in 140 people are infected in a week.
It’s a really stupid situation …




Meanwhile… How about the amount of people in the city in Tokyo…↓

*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)



And also today, I will summarize some prefectures that have a high number of infected people, not just in the Tokyo area.



*** Saitama ***

New infections are [6115] people (*Max of up to yesterday=7354)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [4] locations



*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [7638] people (*Max of up to yesterday=9097)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [15] locations



*** Chiba ***

New infections are [5429] people (*Max of up to yesterday=6604)


(Individual infection information)

*The following areas introduced until the other day will be excluded for a while.
 ①About “Osaka / Aichi / Okinawa / Hyogo / Kyoto”
   →I have summarized this for the past year, but the details of the infection rarely appear during the day.
 ②About “Hokkaido”
   →Infection is settling down



* 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”>




By the way, as everyone in Japan already knows, the infection continues to spread throughout Japan …


It’s the same worldwide … ↓

(World infection status)



However, in the world,
it is still about the situation that “Is it starting to expand a little?”,
but Japan,
it’s already at the worst level ever with expansion like a fool … ↓


(Infection status in Japan / Data up to July 13)



At the time of the first wave,
“Japan has not spread the infection at all!”
“How excellent Japan is!”,
but… now it is the exact opposite.



By the way, it seems that the spread of infection could not be stopped even in “Taiwan, a country with superb infectious disease control”.

(Infection situation in Taiwan)



Taiwan “Our country should also aim for compatibility with the economy!”
… As a result, it seems that it has become such a terrible situation…


However, although it is on the rise worldwide, it still seems to be “The expected Taiwan!” because it is still on the decline trend.



By the way, it seems that the cause of the re-expansion of infection worldwide this time is the variant “BA.5” of Omicron variant.


<Omicron variant variant “BA.5″>
・BA.5 has a much faster infection speed than the previous Omicron variants (~ BA.2).
・”BA.5″ slips through the immunity acquired by vaccines.


However, people who are said to be experts in Japan said, “It is not a cold time now, and the third vaccination is in progress, so it is thought that the number of infected people will not increase as much as around January this year.”
So … well … I can’t trust it (dry laugh)


By the way, it’s scary that… It’s already July 15th today, but…

In the first week of August, viruses from almost all over the country will be replaced by “BA.5”.


*Current distribution of “BA.5” in Japan (as of the first week of July)
・36% ― Ratio of infections caused by “BA.5” nationwide
・57% ― Ratio of infection by “BA.5” in 1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures
        (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba)

・29% ― Ratio of infection by “BA.5” in 2 prefectures and 1 prefecture in Kansai
        (Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo)


In addition, it seems that the standing director of the Japan Medical Association, Satoshi Kamayachi, thinks that it is necessary to expand the scope of the fourth vaccination.




It seems that the government really intends to do nothing but vaccines …





↓ In addition, there was such an article! ↓

(* There was no other news I would like to introduce today)






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…
The number of newly infected people in Japan is so terrible that the situation is no longer understandable, but there are still so many patients.





By the way … why would the government want to vaccinate us by calling as follows???
“3rd vaccination!”
“4th vaccination!”

According to Professor Seiji Kageyama of the Department of Virology, Tottori University School of Medicine, the reason is that Omicron variant’s variant “BA.5” has the following characteristics … ↓



Professor Seiji Kageyama, Department of Virology, Tottori University School of Medicine

“Until the Delta variant, vaccination made antibodies that prevented the virus from sticking to cells in the body.”

“However, in BA.5, it has slipped through the interfering antibodies (antigenic escape).”

“The point is that the vaccine does not match Omicron variant, so we have to fight the virus with the amount of vaccine, so we need a third vaccination.”


…… I absolutely understood …!
Since the vaccine (antibody) is out of shape, it’s the only way to fight with the “amount” of antibody…


The new coronavirus is one million times smarter than humans and seems to evolve faster …


I feel that we were able to fully understand it thanks to Mr. Kageyama’s explanation! 🙂






Please be careful when you go out!
