 (*All of the above from NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆




The number of infected people in Tokyo is …
People are making a fuss about how “the number has decreased from the previous week!”, but since there are only about 400 people (2%) changed from the previous week, it seems that the number is almost the same…


According to the flow so far, it seems that it will continue to increase until the end of the Obon holiday, but what will happen…




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 …!

*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 [9814] people (*Max of up to yesterday=13056 *2022/07/28)


(Individual infection information)

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



*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [14409] people (*Max of up to yesterday=16551 *2022/07/27)


(Individual infection information)

*** Chiba ***

(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that new clusters have been confirmed in a total of  [15] 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”>




Well, it’s August now!
People used to say that the number of infected people might exceed 40,000 per day in the first week of August, but it has already exceeded 40,000 in the last week…


I wonder how much it will increase this week…!



In the midst of this, the government and local governments have announced a mysterious “measures strengthening period”!

This is the overview ↓

(when the bed usage rate exceeds 50%) established a new system in which prefectures independently issue a “BA.5 countermeasure strengthening declaration” 


… Well, what is the surprising content …! ?


We will issue a “BA.5 Strengthening Declaration” and strongly call for vaccination, promotion of telework, and refraining from going out for people at high risk of becoming seriously ill!!!


… Yes…, as before (lol), they’re not taking any countermeasures, just calling appropriately! (dry laugh)


By the way, they said all the way that “Don’t get me wrong! It’s not like I’m refraining from doing anything!”

Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Kihara
“The BA.5 Strengthened Countermeasures Declaration does not seek behavioral restrictions.”

↑…He said, “This declaration has no meaning.”, but … is that really okay…?


I guess they’re pretending to be “doing something” to buy time and wait for the number of infected people to naturally decrease…



By the way, the Tokyo metropolitan government has designated the period until August 21 as a “special period” and calls on citizens to take thorough measures against infectious diseases.

In addition, the contents are “as expected” (lol)
(*= Of course, “just call”!)


Rather, it can only be seen as if they are permitting actions like this. (dry laugh)
“Keep your distance from other people in the pool~” (=You can go to the pool itself!)“Follow the organizer’s instructions at the event!” (= You can go to the event itself!)


what exactly are they bolstering?




Well… a member of the government’s subcommittee, which is the brain behind the Japanese government’s measures against infectious diseases, said some strange things like that
“For each and every citizen, it is being tested whether we can survive this 7th wave without imposing strong restrictions on movement by thoroughly implementing infection control measures.”, but we can’t help it when they say such nonsensical things…
(*コロナ感染者急増 各地で医療機関・介護施設などに影響 – NHK)


Originally, these people should think about and propose efficient and accurate countermeasures…





↓ 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.





It’s been two weeks until the Obon holidays.
 is quite possible that the infection will continue to spread until it passes, but it seems that the people’s behavior and willingness to travel will not decline at all!

It seems that JR East became profitable for the first time in 3 years in the settlement of accounts for 3 months.
→There seems to be a lot of train and Shinkansen users!

In addition, the number of domestic flight reservations during the Obon holiday is 1.7 times higher than last year (!), and it seems that it has already recovered by more than 80% compared to before COVID-19!


Reservations for children under 15 years old are 3 times more than last year, and international flight reservations are 4.6 times more than last year, so it seems that travel demand has completely recovered!

As of June, the number of domestic hotel guests was 1.7 times that of last year (25% decrease from before COVID-19)!
In addition, it seems that the number of Japanese guests decreased by only 6.5% compared to before COVID-19 (lol)



Hmm…That’s why it’s natural that the infection will explode!






Please be careful when you go out!
