The number of infected people in Tokyo is…
It’s finally been a week since the Obon holidays ended, and it feels like the weather is getting a little cooler than usual, the number of infected people is starting to decrease as expected.


It’s not that “measures are meaningless”, but that “measures taken by the Japanese government are meaningless”…


(dry laugh)




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.

 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”>




What? It’s kind of strange…
Kanagawa should have had the second highest number of infected people after Tokyo among “1 metropolis and 3 prefectures”…
…Many of you may have been wondering that recently.


In fact, Kanagawa has already messed up how to count the number of new infections before the “review of notifiable disease surveillance”…



This is the number of newly infected people officially announced by Kanagawa on a certain day (August 18th)…↓


(*The number of infected people announced on this day in Kanagawa = 10009 people)


But it actually looks like this…↓


(*Number of infected people in Kanagawa on this day = 10,009 new infected people + 5,991 newly issued voluntary medical notices = 16,000 total)


10009 people?
16000 people?
Which one?
…is what we’re wondering, right?


In the first place, what is “new issuance of voluntary medical care notification”?



In fact, this is the system introduced in Kanagawa for the first time in Japan in February of this year, and it means that “a person with a low risk of becoming seriously ill can choose to receive medical treatment (self-treatment) without going to a medical institution or public health center when a positive reaction is obtained with a commercially available test kit”.



As long as there is such a system,
“You don’t have to go to a medical institution by choosing the voluntary medical care system.”
“Since that person is not counted as an infected person at medical institutions, the number of voluntary medical treatments must also be counted as the number of new infections”,
…but the number of new infections is still not counted…


(*There is a difference between the two numbers.)


It’s only posted on Kanagawa Prefecture’s “new coronavirus infectious disease countermeasures site”.
Moreover, it was just recently that the publication started on August 17th…
(*新型コロナ感染者数、自主療養も含めて発表 神奈川県 – 東京新聞)


By the way, this “self-treatment system” is adopted not only in Kanagawa but also in other areas.





Recently, people say, “There are many asymptomatic infected people, and many people self-diagnose that they have a cold, so we don’t know the actual number of infected people,”
but as far as we can see this,
the local government is hiding the number of infected people in the first place.


It seems impossible to control infectious diseases unless the Japanese government and local governments lose their “appropriateness” before “Review of Notifiable disease surveillance.”





↓ 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.





By the way, the number of infected people this time last year was like this!

I wonder if this year will be like this…


In addition, last year it was “with countermeasures”, so if by any chance the same trend happens this year, it will be proven that “the measures taken by the Japanese government so far have been completely meaningless’ ….


Well, what will happen..


…And there are quite a lot of people who say, “There is no point in wearing a mask because the 7th wave is being caused,” but… there are a lot of people who are taking off the mask these days, right? The number of infections has spread since many people stopped wearing masks (June), so no matter how you look at it, you can easily imagine that “Remove your mask!” is one of the causes of the 7th wave…






Please be careful when you go out!
