 (*All of the above from NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆




The number of infected people in Tokyo is…
The number has fallen below 10,000 for two consecutive days…!


If it’s the same as every year, it will steadily decrease until around the consecutive holidays in November, but what will happen this year?




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 …!

※*Tokyo currently has 33 facilities for infected people(February 22-) 
 (Capacity for a total of 8,850 beds)

  (6,319 for mild cases + 421 for severe cases)

*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 [3952] people (*Max of up to yesterday=13991 *2022/08/05)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [3] locations



*** Kanagawa ***

(Individual infection information)

 ・Including [1192] people newly issued voluntary medical care notifications, the total number of new infections is [6368] people.

 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! ↓

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




Yesterday, I put together a summary that “Japan is going to be outrageous due to the review of Notifiable disease surveillance”, but on the other hand, it seems that home-visit nursing care has become the worst situation ever in the “seventh wave”.


・Due to the shortage of hospital beds, the principle of “in principle, the elderly should be hospitalized” collapsed.

・After the 6th wave, the Japanese government also announced that “elderly people should be recuperated in nursing homes, not hospitals.”

・Cluster outbreaks occur at facilities for the elderly, and elderly people at home who cannot commute to facilities become nursing care refugees.

・If an elderly person receiving home care becomes infected, the home helper will not be able to attend, making him impossible to receive care.

・Numerous clusters occur at elderly care facilities and day service offices, making it impossible to provide home-visit nursing care.

・The Japanese government provides subsidies, but they are not enough, and the staff are made to operate only with a sense of mission.

(*The number of clusters at elderly care facilities since January this year)


Moreover, the Japanese government is compensating for the decrease in income of medical institutions under the COVID-19 disaster, but it seems that it is not compensating for the decrease in income of nursing care facilities…



By the way, according to this document(厚生労働省), “how much subsidy is actually given to nursing care offices” seems to be like that…↓

<Subsidies for “corresponding to COVID-19” (for nursing care facilities)>

・For employees → subsidy of about 300,000 yen
・For facilities → Subsidize the actual cost of COVID-19 countermeasures (up to 9 million yen)

A quick look at the materials shows the results above, and it seems that it’s a one-time payment, not monthly…




This is terrible compared to the generosity of assistance to medical institutions…





↓ 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, the Japanese Association for Infectious Diseases and the Japanese Society of Chemotherapy seem to be saying something about Zokoba, an oral drug for COVID-19 developed by Shionogi Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., which has a reputation for being “not effective in improving symptoms” even before applying for approval… ( dry laugh)


Proposals from two academic societies
“It was effective in the clinical trial conducted by Shionogi!”
“The Japanese government should promptly consider approving the drug!”


About this “Zokoba”, it has been said that it is “ineffective” for more than half a year … ↓
(*新型コロナ塩野義の飲み薬、審査で頭悩ます厚労省 症状改善効果明確に示せず – 京都新聞)
(*「有効性の推定満たさず」が大勢 塩野義のコロナ飲み薬、承認見送り – 朝日新聞デジタル)
(*症状は改善される? 塩野義製薬が新型コロナ内服薬の承認を申請 – 朝日新聞デジタル)


Academics are suddenly talking about it, so we doubt that they are getting bribes from that company… (dry laugh)


What’s more, it makes us wonder, “Why is it not late July or early August, when the virus is on the rise?” (dry laugh)


In addition, the current status of this drug under review by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare is “approval postponed due to insufficient data to confirm efficacy(July)”!


Hmm, something strange… (like a detective lol)






Please be careful when you go out!
