◆◆◆ Japan ◆◆◆





(Cumulative) * The following is up to 10 worst prefectures.


*( )= increase  from the day before



 (*All of the above from NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆




The number of infected people in Tokyo is …
It seems that 160,000 people were newly infected in a week …



what does this mean…
With a population of about 14 million in Tokyo, It’s the worst situation that “one in 100 people in Tokyo was infected in just one week” …


Moreover, the first three days of this week are “three consecutive holidays + the next day” …
It seems that the outbreak of infection will continue until the end of the Bon Festival, so I wonder if one in two or thirty people will eventually get infected …




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

(Around 15:00 today, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

the breakdown of the number of new infections in Tokyo + α …!





(Individual infection information)

 ・Of the【32,698】 people today, 【20324】 people (62%) seem to have completed both vaccinations …

(As of April 27, 2022)
※*Tokyo currently has 33 facilities for infected people(February 22-) 
 (Capacity for a total of 8,850 beds)

* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 6,560 beds
  (6,319 for mild cases + 421 for severe cases)

*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 [12424] people (*Max of up to yesterday=11598*2022/07/22)
 ■■■ The highest number of newly infected people ever ■■■


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [19] locations



*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [13716] people (*Max of up to yesterday=11,443*2022/07/20)
 ■■■ The highest number of newly infected people ever ■■■


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [18] locations



*** Chiba ***

New infections are [9591] people (*Max of up to yesterday=9463*2022/07/22)
 ■■■ The highest number of newly infected people ever ■■■ 


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that new clusters have been confirmed in a total of  [3] locations



*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! ↓




*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday










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




It seems that 37 out of 47 prefectures recorded the worst number of newly infected people this week.
(*新型コロナ 1週間の新規感染者 37都県で過去最多に – NHK)


Well … Still, no measures have been taken …


The number of patients in Japan is now 1.2 million … ↓

(*As of July 22)

↑This means that 1 in 100 Japanese people is undergoing medical treatment


Moreover, it is still in the stage of increasing …


By the way, the number of home care recipients is about 610,000 as of July 20th …

According to the article above, there are about 1000 people nationwide who need to be hospitalized but have not decided where to accept them.


*  This “1000 people” means this ↓
“Every day, 1000 out of those who are suffering so much that they need to be hospitalized are forced to wait at home without being able to be hospitalized.”



(*Only 3 days after the 3 consecutive holidays in July that triggered the outbreak of infection)
The hospital bed usage rate as of July 21 is like this ↓


<COVID-19 patient bed usage rate>

▽ 77% in Okinawa Prefecture,
▽ 67% in Kumamoto Prefecture,
▽ 65% in Wakayama prefecture,
▽ 64% in Shiga prefecture,
▽ 58% in Kanagawa Prefecture,
▽ 56% in Shizuoka prefecture,
▽ 52% in Aomori Prefecture,
▽ 51% in Fukuoka Prefecture


It’s already at the limit …
(*It seems that ambulance transportation was already difficult from around 50% in the 6th wave)



Although it is such a hellish domestic infection situation, each prefecture’s response maximizes the alert level such as “special warning”, but it does not restrict actions, it just calls for something.


Governor Hattori of Fukuoka Prefecture
“We are in the middle of the 7th wave right now, but we don’t limit our actions!”
“Please do only ventilation and masks!”


Governor Yoshimura of Osaka Prefecture
“It doesn’t make sense to limit the number of people in a restaurant! That doesn’t mean we can’t control the Omicron variant.”
“I can’t control the Omicron variant, so I won’t limit people’s actions!”
“Most of the infections are in young people, but only elderly people may be restricted in their behavior!”


Governor Koike of Tokyo
“Today (July 22nd) was also the largest number of infected people ever!”
“I’ll take the necessary measures first and foremost! So I don’t have any restrictions on people’s actions right now!”


The point is … everyone just looks at the number of infected people and just only says “Oh, that sounds like it’s going to be difficult” …



They said like above, but I can understand it, because…

Such a Prime Minister has been saying this all the time …

Prime Minister Kishida

“I’m not thinking about new behavioral restrictions at this point, but I’ve just strengthened the medical system! The number of beds nationwide has increased from 30,000 to 50,000!”

“please be relieved because I only look at the economy!”


By the way, it seems that he is making this statement at the Keidanren (economic organization) meeting …




Apparently this Prime Minister is only looking at economic organizations …





↓ 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…
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.





In the ↑, I summarized only the remarks of politicians, but on the other hand, in the medical field …


Kenjiro Ando, ​​Chairman of the Sendai Medical Association
“I want you to refrain from returning to your hometown(parent’s house) this summer.”


From the 19th, the day after the three consecutive holidays in July, the number of calls to the fever outpatient department of Chairman Ando’s clinic increased sharply, and when 24 people were asked to undergo a PCR test, 19 people seemed to be positive …


“It is very scary for the younger generation to go parent’s home unnoticed and infect elderly people at high risk of becoming ill.”


… That’s right.
It’s not like “Young people don’t get serious, so it doesn’t matter”


However, the fact that neither the people nor the government intends to take any measures is really dark this time …!






Please be careful when you go out!
