It’s been a week since Japan’s Golden Week ended.
A state of emergency had been declared in four cities, but it will be extended to the 31st of this month.
In addition to the four cities (Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo, and Kyoto), some prefectures have declared self-restraint at their own discretion.
I live in the countryside of Kyushu, and I have been asked to refrain from the activities until the 31st. Clusters are occurring every day, but it is not reported where they occur. In addition, the website of the vocational school where the clusters took place is informing the public about the clusters and raising awareness, but I think it is ridiculous that neither the prefectural government nor the city government is making this clear.
In Kagoshima Prefecture, even the names of the vocational schools and universities where the clusters occurred are being reported.
Please take a look at the situation before the Golden Week and as of May 11.

What will happen to the Olympics on July 23?
Prime Minister Suga’s answers are vague and inarticulate. Taro Kono, the minister in charge of vaccines, said today that the deputy mayor of Nishio City in Aichi Prefecture had instructed his department to give priority to securing an appointment for a new coronavirus vaccine for the chairman and his wife, who own a major pharmacy.
“We are aware that there have been such cases,” he said. “We have secured enough vaccine supply to cover all those who wish to receive the vaccine. We hope that you will not be rushed into waiting.
The talk of 100 million doses by June has disappeared. We cannot overlook the fact that there are people who want to obtain the coronary vaccine through power. They must be thinking that they can save themselves.
Japanese politicians apparently don’t have the authority to decide how the Olympics should be held, and IOC President Bach was reported to want “a safe Tokyo Olympics” on April 10. The IOC president, Mr. Bach, is also reported to want “a safe Tokyo Olympics” on October 10, but apparently he does not have the right to make decisions about the Olympics.
Kei Nishikori, a Japanese tennis player, made this statement from the standpoint of an athlete.
He said this from the standpoint of an athlete:
“It’s not a tournament of 100 people like this (Italy International), but 10,000 people will gather in the athletes’ village to participate in the tournament. So, I don’t think it will be easy. The situation in Japan is not going well, especially now. We have to think about what is happening now, not only in Japan but all over the world. There are still a few months left. It is difficult to say anything now. But even if we hold off for now, we have to decide at some point. If it is now, I think it will be very difficult.”
About 80% of Japanese people do not want the Olympics to be held, according to data. (Yahoo survey)
The Japanese do not have the right to make decisions about hosting the Olympics.
I can only hope for your call from the world.
