The number of infected people in Tokyo is…
The total for the week is almost flat compared to last week.



I think it will start to decrease from next week…




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 [11449] people (*Max of up to yesterday=13991 *2022/08/05)


(Individual infection information)

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



*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [10741] people (*Max of up to yesterday=16551 *2022/07/27)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [14] locations



*** Chiba ***

New infections are [7840] people (*Max of up to yesterday=11776 *2022/07/28)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that new clusters have been confirmed in a total of  [12] 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”>




Yesterday’s infection status in Tokyo, the death information was like this … ↓



↑ I couldn’t confirm detailed information such as underlying diseases, but in any case, it’s strange that a small child under the age of 10 or a young person in their teens would die…
(*Detailed information has been released.
Male in his teens had no underlying disease → died at the destination hospital due to deterioration during home treatment
The boy under the age of 10 had multiple underlying diseases such as brain disease.)



…In such Tokyo, Governor Koike of Tokyo rarely said something decent!

About the Japanese government’s consideration of reviewing “Notifiable disease surveillance”
(*Notifiable disease surveillance = counting and totaling all the number of COVID-19 infected people)

Governor Koike
“If you can’t see the overall movement, you won’t know what to do, and the site will be confused.”
“I want you to make a decision after properly sorting out such issues.”
“You can understand various things by monitoring the numbers all the time.”
“I would like to thank everyone who has worked on the site so far.”


…The fact that Tokyo did not take any measures against infectious diseases in the 7th wave (dry laugh), but this statement is very decent.


Those who advocate stopping “notifiable disease surveillance” say that doing so will allow us to focus on the elderly and those at high risk of developing severe disease, but it’s like this↓
“I keep wiping the water that flows even though the water from the faucet keeps running.”
If you don’t stop the faucet itself, nothing will be solved…



By the way, at the clinic in Minato-ku, Tokyo in this article, it seems that inputting to the infected person information system “HER-SYS” is a considerable burden.
There are days when it takes more than an hour for two doctors and nurses to input data.


However, if you look closely at the article, there was such a description.

・For patients who do not know the zip code, it is necessary to look it up on the Internet.


…What? It doesn’t need something like that…


Governments should rethink their systems before they stop “notifiable disease surveillance'” albeit to reduce the burden on healthcare workers…


A doctor at that clinic said:
“It’s difficult to keep track of all cases as it is now because the burden on medical institutions is heavy, so we need to review it.
But on the other hand, this is important data to understand the infection situation.
Most of the items can be entered by the patients themselves, so there is room for reviewing the method.”




Everyone tends to “review”, but I feel that it would be quicker to make efforts to reduce the number of infected people…





↓ 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.





As of last week’s Obon holiday: August 18th, hospital bed usage rates in each prefecture were as follows:


<Bed usage rate of medical institutions in each prefecture>

In Japan, if the number exceeds 50%, the ambulance will not come even if you call it, or if an ambulance does come, you will not be able to find a hospital to accept it.


For this reason, in the past, when the rate exceeded 50%, a state of emergency was declared immediately, but
(*コロナ感染6指標 病床50%超で「宣言」も 分科会 – 毎日新聞)
now, people who are suffering are simply left alone without taking any measures.


“Even though the whole of Japan is suffering from the epidemic, it is completely ignored and neglected.”
…Such a government might not have existed in Japan unless we went back to the Heian period…
If you think about it, we might be having some pretty rare experiences by wasting our lives…






Please be careful when you go out!
