***  This article is written with the help of Google Translate… ***



29,115 (+11,231 from the day before) new infections confirmed in Tokyo.




◆◆◆ 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…
Today, the number is the same as last week, but on the other hand, the number of “Patients with suspected special cases” remains high at [758] people…
(*”Patients with suspected special cases” … those who are recognized as infected without being diagnosed)


After the three consecutive holidays in July, the number of patients and consultations increased too much, and the hospital was overwhelmed after that, so the current situation is that even tests and consultations are not possible…?
(*Recognized as infected without medical examination = no room for medical examination at the hospital)
= The number of new infections appears to decrease because it is not reflected in the number of infected people
= Many people are suffering at home without being able to even get tested? )




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 …!

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




Well, since the three consecutive holidays in mid-July, the infection situation in Japan has been so messed up, and for this reason, Mr. Omi, chairman of the government subcommittee, who has not been on the topic for about a week, said something like this last week.


<Urgent proposals to the government compiled by Chairman Omi and others>

“Future COVID-19 measures should be shifted in two stages”
  (① = Step 1 / ② = Step 2)

→【Medical support】
  ①Loosen measures against infectious diseases so that they can be performed at general medical institutions
  ②Make it possible to be hospitalized at more medical institutions
   *Financially subsidize the medical institution that accepted the patient’s hospitalization
   *Outpatients are basically performed at general medical facilities
→【Corresponding to public health centers】
  ①Stop observing the patient’s health and handle it at the consultation desk
   Discontinuing the 100% grasp and responding only to patients at risk of aggravation
   Hospitalization adjustment is done directly by the medical institution, not by the public health center
  ②Recuperate only at home
   Introduce a new method to understand the infection status
→【Cost of Medical Treatment】
  ①Continue public expenditure
  ②Only severely ill patients and high-cost drugs will be covered by public funds
   Change the infectious disease law to
allow the minimum amount of going out
→【Treatment of close contacts】
  ①Each person should make their own decisions and act
  ②Change the handling under the Infectious Diseases Act


Well… no matter how they try to cover it up, we can only looks like that they’re still saying, “Isn’t it fine to treat it like a normal cold?”


Although he does say something like this…

Chairman Omi

“The government should explain to the public that the number of people who will die may increase if socioeconomic activities continue to be activated in the seventh wave.”

“Since shortening the waiting period for close contacts increases the risk of the spread of infection, the government should encourage the public to take action to lower the risk.”

“We should make sure that test kits are available.”

“We should build a new investigation method to understand the infection situation.”

They say such things, but am I the only one who thinks they’re just trying to shift the blame…?
Something like “I gave you advice!”


After all, they know that more people will die, but they are just saying, “Government should explain!”, and  actually, they’re trying to change it to “regular cold treatment” ….


I don’t remember the timing, but since when did this person only say things like protecting the medical industry to which he belongs and receiving subsidies?
Something like “We should only prevent the medical crisis! Infected people should wait at home!”
There are people who suffer during home recuperation, and there are people who die just like that…



By the way, as everyone on the street is shouting out loud, if the handling of COVID-19 under the Infection Law is changed from the current “class 2 equivalent” to “class 5”,

All medical expenses will be borne by the patient.
(*Currently covered by public funds)


By the way, flu drugs cost 2,000 to 3,000 yen, while COVID-19 drugs cost 0,000 to 80,000 yen.
The digits are different.


What this means is that
the people are yelling, “Change to class 5!”,
but the government is stubborn and does not change and is paying the burden of the people…


Well… from our point of view, “the government is increasing the number of infected people without restricting movement on its own, and using our tax money to take care of it”… ( dry laugh)


The Japanese government seems to have a policy of not changing the handling under the Infectious Diseases Law from “category 2 to category 5”, but to “category 2 to category 2” and continue to bear the medical expenses of infected people, but…
Why don’t you pay the full amount personally?



Medical expenses are so high that more and more people will be very careful about infectious disease control! (lol)





↓ 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… Every day, I introduce the prefectures with the “worst 10 total number of infected people” in the ↑ column…↓

(Ex: Situation on Saturday, August 6)

Then, on the contrary, “Where are the top 10 with the lowest cumulative number of infected people?” is like this↓

(Ex: Situation on Saturday, August 6)


In addition, the ones circled in red are those who have experienced “No. 1 in the country for the lowest total number of infected people” !
Both Shimane and Iwate have seen an increase in the number of infected people, but they are still in the top 10!


I mean…, even in Tottori, which has long reigned in Japan’s TOP of TOP, the number of infected people is close to 1000 now, isn’t it?


Nowhere in Japan seems to be safe…






Please be careful when you go out!
