*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.

   →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”>




It’s September!
Since the Obon holidays, the number of infected people in Japan has steadily decreased!


By the way, speaking of “September”…
Two years ago (the first year of COVID-19), September was also the month when we expected that “AstraZeneca’s vaccine will be completed in the fastest time in the world and we will finally be free from this COVID-19 disaster!”


…but then
Concerns about AstraZeneca’s vaccine occurred during clinical trials, and as a result, the vaccines of each company were delayed until December, and after all, the new coronavirus infection has not even been resolved yet … 🙁



It is such a “memorable September”, but two years have passed since then, and this is what is being discussed in Japan today…!

About “Review of notifiable disease surveillance” which has been a hot topic recently, As of the evening of August 29th, only 4 prefectures have applied for review!



<Review of notifiable disease surveillance>
・4 prefectures  ー review
・10 prefectures  ー No review
・33 prefectures  ー under consideration

…I’m glad there were a lot of “decent areas” unexpectedly…(dry laugh)

Even so, there are some areas with surprising results … lol


They said, “I want to stop even identifying high-risk people!”
(In a good way) Too surprising!


It seems that they decided to review the total number even though it was “the area with the lowest cumulative number of infected people” and the maximum number exceeded 1000.


Hey, Tottori…



In addition, it seems that the four prefectures that decided to review will be implemented from September 2 as early as possible.
In addition, it seems that Mie Prefecture will also apply for a review on September 2, according to the information after that.


Miyagi Prefecture Governor Murai
“The efforts of the four prefectures will set a precedent for other prefectures. There will be some confusion.”

>>>Don’t set a strange precedent…


Saga Prefecture Governor Yamaguchi
“It feels strange to review only four prefectures. We will create a good system and lead the country.”

>>>no one wants that for you…


Mie Prefecture Governor Ichimi
“I want to reduce the burden on medical personnel as much as possible.”

>>>They should just hire a part-timer to fill in the information…


Tottori Prefecture Governor Hirai
“Even in Tottori Prefecture, where the number of infected people is the lowest in the country, doctors are inputting patient information until late at night. The review will not increase the number of deaths of seriously ill patients.”

>>>Whether or not you review it, severely ill people will continue to be counted in the first place, so it’s irrelevant to this discussion….We just want to prevent the sudden worsening of symptoms and death in people with mild symptoms, and spread of infection…



By the way, Hyogo Prefecture seems to be much smarter than them.

Hyogo Prefecture will not revise its grasp of the total number, but instead will reduce the input contents of the system from 20 items to only 7 items!


Patients themselves can register their name, age, date of birth, etc., so it seems that there is almost no burden!




I think they should just ask the government for “subsidies for part-time employment to enter the system” instead of “reviewing the total number of workers”…





↓ 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, it seems that the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has also approved the third vaccination for children between the ages of 5 and 11.

However, the current situation is that children’s vaccinations are not progressing at all…


The rate of vaccination for the third time among adults is almost flat after exceeding 60%, and it seems that no one is going to get vaccinated now…


Well… after all, it seems that the vaccine’s effect of preventing infection only lasts for a month or two, so nothing will be solved unless the virus is eradicated in the first place…






Please be careful when you go out!
