*( )= increase  from the day before



 (*All of the above from NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆




The number of infected people in Tokyo is…
It’s Monday, which has the lowest number in the week, so it’s not very helpful, but it’s been decreasing for two consecutive weeks.
(*In addition, last week was also “decreased”, but the total for the week increased from the previous week.)


And today in Tokyo, a girl under the age of 10 died…

It is said that there were multiple underlying diseases, but considering that she would not have died if she had not been 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 …!

※*Tokyo currently has 33 facilities for infected people(February 22-)

*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 [8832] people (*Max of up to yesterday=13991 *2022/08/05)


(Individual infection information)

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



*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [12631] people (*Max of up to yesterday=16551 *2022/07/27)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [13] locations



*** Chiba ***

New infections are [7044] people (*Max of up to yesterday=11778 *2022/07/28)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that new clusters have been confirmed in a total of  [14] 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! ↓

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




“Government does nothing!”
“What… is the government really not going to take any measures…?”

While we are worrying like this, the Obon holidays are approaching…! (dry laugh)

If this passes, the infection will settle down every year, so we can only pray that the Obon season will pass and the infection will naturally settle down as usual.


Even so… it’s a really amazing government (sarcasm)



By the way, there are still no restrictions on movement, so the Tokyo government seems to be “welcome to go home for Obon!”

From last week, free test venues have been set up at six locations:
Tokyo Station, Shinagawa Station, Ueno Station, Ikebukuro Station, Shinjuku Station, and Shinjuku Expressway Bus Terminal
to support travelers so that they can travel with peace of mind!

People claiming to be experts often say that “the movement of people does not spread the infection”, but now that the movement of people is sure to spread the infection to every corner of Japan, even to rural areas, our world is becoming quite crazy…(dry laugh)


In addition, at this venue, you will be given a test kit, and you will be able to test yourself and check the results yourself!
(*Takes about 15 to 30 minutes)



Speaking of which, the Japanese government recently introduced a completely meaningless “call” system called “BA.5 Strengthening Countermeasures Declaration”, but even in the current worst infection situation, Governor Koike of Tokyo doesn’t even need it…


Tokyo Governor Koike
“Because we are already taking measures as a special period until August 21st.
No need for such a declaration! ”


…Well, it doesn’t work either way, so I don’t mind either way…(dry laugh)


I wonder if there is a great person who can implement effective measures…



By the way, it seems that even the governors of each prefecture have different opinions on the Japanese government’s “no measures”.
For example, regarding “whether or not to stop grasping the total number (counting all infected people)”

Although Tottori has the fewest cumulative number of infected people in Japan, Tottori continues to produce nearly 1,000 infected people a day, but…


Governor Hirai of Tottori Prefecture
“The method of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare is bankrupt. Please stop trying to figure out all the numbers.”


On the other hand, in Shimane, where an explosion of infections occurred at the origin of a very large cluster, and the number of infected people continues to be high…

Shimane Prefecture Governor Maruyama
“When the infection is spreading and the situation is terrible, it is an unbelievable idea from my point of view to stop tracking the total number of people and steer to a situation that will further spread the infection. It’s the same as steering to a situation that spreads more infections.”


↑…When you compare opinions like this, no matter how you look at it, Governor Maruyama of Shimane can only be seen as a person with common sense…



In the same article, Governor Nisaka of Wakayama said taht…

Governor Nisaka of Wakayama
“There is no way to declare BA.5 measures strengthening because it is useless.”
“Government officials will be dispatched to advise us if we declare it, but frankly, it’s a hindrance.”


……Yeah, it’s so “straight” words that it feels good (lol)




Looking at it this way, there seems to be a decent governor, but…





↓ 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.





Speaking of which, the results of a survey on the side effects of Novavax’s vaccine, which began vaccination in Japan in May this year, have come out.

nlike Pfizer and Moderna, this vaccine is a “recombinant protein vaccine,” so, it was said that the side effects were less than other vaccines, but what was the result…


<Summary of vaccine side reactions>

【Fever of 37.5 degrees or higher】
39.7% - Pfizer
62.9% - Moderna
10.3% - Novavax

【whole body malaise】
69.0% - Pfizer
75.6% - Moderna
39.7% - Novavax

55.1% - Pfizer
64.5% - Moderna
27.6% - Novavax


If you look at it like this, it certainly seems to have fewer side effects than the vaccines you’ve ever had!


However… the % is still high…?
When Pfizer and Moderna first came out, the number of adverse reactions should have been lower, so we don’t really know after all…!






Please be careful when you go out!
