(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)

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




In the past few days, there have been some news related to vaccines and therapeutic drugs, so let me briefly summarize them!


Regarding the “vaccine that is also effective for Omicron variants,” the Japanese government has decided to bring forward the start of vaccination from mid-October to mid-September!

In addition, it seems that this vaccination target is “all people over the age of 18 who have completed the second vaccination”.


…However, this new vaccine is compatible with the “BA.1” that spread around January this year…it’s already outdated


Well…if I bring it up, it will end up like this, so I can’t say anything…(dry laugh)
“Then the current vaccine is not old fashioned, it’s an ancient one.”


As a side note, both Pfizer and Moderna have applied for approval to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare for this new type of vaccine!



By the way, according to Professor Tetsuo Nakamura of Kitasato University, who is familiar with vaccines,


Specially Appointed Professor Nakayama

“Although it depends on the epidemic situation of the variant virus in the future, we can suppress the severity of the disease.”

“An infection prevention effect can be expected for one or two months.”

“The frequency of adverse reactions is the same as before.”


Hmmm, what we want to know is whether it is “outdated” even if it is “BA.1” compatible…
In the case of the content of ↑, we think, “Even the conventional vaccine has a preventive effect for 1 or 2 months and can prevent aggravation, and it is no different from the vaccine so far…?”



And it seems that a new injection drug has also been approved in Japan.

Approved this time is AstraZeneca’s injection drug “Evasheld Intramuscular Injection Set”, which seems to be a type that administers an antibody that suppresses the action of the new coronavirus by injection.


There were two statements in this article about the effect that I was very interested in!

①When an uninfected person takes it, the risk of developing it is reduced by 77%, and the effect lasts for half a year

② It has been confirmed that if a person who develops symptoms after infection takes it within 7 days, it has the effect of reducing the risk of aggravation and death by 50%.

In Japan, it is mainly targeted at people who cannot obtain sufficient effects of vaccines because their immune function is weakened by cancer treatment, etc., and is used only when the doctor deems it necessary.


That’s the point↓
Vaccine >>>> Create antibodies in the body by vaccination
This injection >>>>  Inject the antibody directly into the body




In that case, I feel that it is quicker to inject the antibody directly into the body than vaccination…





↓ 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.





As in the past two years, after the Obon holidays, the number of infected people in Japan has started to decrease little by little.


It seems that there are still 5,097 cases a week where ambulance transportation is difficult.
(*more than 700 per day)


That should be it…
Because it seems that hospital beds for COVID-19 patients are still over 50% in most prefectures.

It seems that 38 prefectures out of 47 prefectures exceed 50%.


After all, Japan is trying to survive this 7th wave for the first time without any measures, but as a result, Japan has become a country where the collapse of the medical system, where even if you call an ambulance, you cannot reach the hospital…






Please be careful when you go out!
