Even though it is hot, heavy rains such as guerrilla heavy rains occur in various prefectures., and this time heavy rain disasters occur not only in western Japan but also in the Tohoku region.
If it's Originally schedule,
now it should have been a great excitement the Tokyo Olympics. .. .. .. .. .. ..
…I'm sorry from the beginning, it's negative...
I will drink coffee and raise me up! lol
…Okay! Let's start talking!
Well this time!? Is this actually the case?!!
…It's super annoying to lifting me up, right? lol
Let's go normally. lol
This time, I also put it in the "Summary article" that summarizes the number of new infected people of COVID-19 the other day, but since the movement of people at this "COVID-19 disaster" appeared in the news, it is summarized I organized it!
I'm worried about how people are moving, and I'm worried about the spread of COVID-19, even when considering infection prevention!
It should be a fun and enjoyable summer vacation, but this year 2020, a lot of things are really messed up by the "new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection"...
I'm from the countryside, but Obon (consecutive holidays in summer season around mid of Aug) is a big event for people in the countryside! lol
A distant family came home, visited a grave, gathered with relatives, had a banquet, and had an alumni reunion...etc,.
There are so many things to do! lol
You can also meet grandpa!
Do urban people go on a trip?
↑ It's an impression of a completely rural person. lol
However, this year, COVID-19 has made us feel like we should refrain from returning home to Obon so that we didn't infect on COVID-19 to an old grandma.
"people must not infect to their old grandpa and grandmother,"
"People want to meet grandpa and grandma because they may never meet again."
Life is so fast that we have to meet a lot while we can really meet grandpa and grandmothers.
There was such a conflict this year, but how was the actual movement of people...
Here, data on the movement of people in Obon came out.
It's mobile information data for NTT Docomo mobile phones.
Compared to the same period last year
In Akita and Niigata, I wonder if people returning from Tokyo, Kanto, etc. are refraining this year...?
Okinawa is completely infected, so I feel like refraining from traveling.
Even the items that haven't changed much have decreased so much compared to last year.
Nara/Wakayama/Shiga and Saitama/Kanagawa/Chiba do not seem to have decreased dramatically because they are near the metropolitan area.
I wonder if there are many people who usually go to Tokyo or Osaka from their parents' houses.
Less than half of last year's people have moved from Tokyo to all regions.
And in terms of specific prefectures...
It seems that they are moving to neighboring prefectures such as Saitama, Kanagawa, and Chiba from Tokyo as much as they were last year.
This is probably because people usually come and go in the living area regardless of "Obon".
And Okinawa where is a tourist destination is that...
There are really few, probably because the infection has spread in Okinawa.
However, it is surprising that about half of last year was still there...
By the way, Osaka is that...
It hasn't changed so much to the nearby Kansai area (except Mie).
Obon season in 2020, which was hit directly by the "new coronavirus infectious disease", looks like this.
By the way,
it seems that the number of people who stayed in Tokyo increased by 9% or 850,000 people from last year.
When we hear "9%", we think "it's too small...",
but when we also hear It's 850,000 people, we think "Oh, it's a lot!" lol
Unlike Golden Week in May of this year, I was honestly surprised that so many people were restrained in this Obon even though no emergency declaration was issued by the Japanese government.
There are many Japanese people who can really restrain themselves or control themselves, which is just amazing...
After that, I hope the government will take proper measures...
I hope this will change the trend to reduce the number of infected people...
The vaccine will soon be completed,
I hope this cramped day is limited to this year!
It's going to be a really tough day, but let's all get through together!
Please be very careful when you go out!
