The number of infected people in Tokyo is…
It’s Monday, so it’s natural that the number will be the lowest in a week, but even so, the number is almost the same as Kanagawa.


Although it has decreased considerably, it is still over 5000 people…




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 [3689] people (*Max of up to yesterday=13991 *2022/08/05)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [10] locations



*** Kanagawa ***

*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”>




With no fundamental solution to the infection situation in Japan, the Japanese government is desperately trying to ease the measures while the infection is starting to settle down, but it seems that the medicine for COVID-19 is also steadily evolving…!

According to a study of approved therapeutic drugs in Japan by a group such as the University of Tokyo, it seems that the following has been found!


<Results of research on the effects of domestic therapeutic agents>

■Therapeutic drugs approved in Japan
“Remdesivir”, “Lagebrio (Molnupiravir)”,
“Pakilobid (nirmatrelvir/ritonavir)”

 →The same effect was confirmed for the Omicron variant “BA.2.75” as for the conventional virus.

■Antibody drug approved in Japan
“Ronna Prive” and “Zebdi”
 →The effect against Omicron variant “BA.2.75” has been greatly reduced
Antibody drug “Evasheld” approved in Japan last month
 →The same effect was confirmed for the Omicron variant “BA.2.75” as for the conventional virus.


…well…currently, the mainstream of infections in Japan is not “BA2.75” but “BA.5”


However, research takes time and cannot be done in a timely manner, so it’s good to be able to confirm that even if it was later, it was effective!



On the other hand, it seems that the virus side is steadily evolving (?) because “Continue to leave the spread of infection unattended” means “freely allow variants”

↑According to this article, the cause of death of people who died of COVID-19 infection has changed since the 5th wave.


<Report from North Tokyo Medical Center>

■Cause of death of those who died after COVID-19 infection up to the fifth wave
 →In most cases, pneumonia aggravated and died

■Current causes of death for those who died after being infected with COVID-19
 →In most cases, the whole body weakens or the chronic disease worsens and dies.


According to Takao Omagari, director of the International Center for Infectious Diseases,
some people say that “COVID-19 is no longer a deadly, scary disease,” but the common understanding among medical professionals is that in most cases, they would not have died if they had not been infected with COVID-19.


It’s true that the number of elderly people who died after the 6th wave (January this year) has increased considerably, but in the 7th wave this time, young people in their teens and 20s are also dying little by little …


Until now, the number of deaths has not been as high as in the 7th wave, and most of the deaths were due to pneumonia.
If you think about it like that…
unlike other diseases and infectious diseases, COVID-19 is still a very scary disease, as if you get infected in a weak state, you will lose your life at once.





↓ 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, here’s an interesting article…

According to Hitoshi Kuramochi, director of Utsunomiya City Interpark Kuramochi Respiratory Medicine, who is active on TV…


Kuramochi Department of Respiratory Medicine, Utsunomiya Interpark
Director Hitoshi Kuramochi

「”If you don’t vaccinate at all, you won’t develop basic immunity. This is clear from the results of examining 20,000 infected people and 200 hospitalized people this year.”


Well…if you haven’t been vaccinated or infected so far, you won’t have a chance to come into contact with the “new coronavirus”, so it’s natural that you won’t have the basic immunity to it, but on the other hand, In fact, most of us stop by the third vaccination, but what is going on with our immunity now…?
I feel like the ability to prevent aggravation, let alone the ability to prevent infection, is completely gone…


Maybe I’ll look into it when I have time…(dry laugh)






Please be careful when you go out!
