Knowing the news sphere of your life.
I’m really thankful that the last few days, “Okinawa, are you okay?” I am so grateful for everyone’s kindness!
One of your concerns is the rapidly increasing number of corona infections. Another is the direct hit of the typhoon.
As of August 8, there were 5 seriously ill patients; the maximum number in April was 13, so medical care has not collapsed. As in Tokyo, this is due to an increase in the number of tests. The increase in the number of infections mainly among the younger generation is the main reason for the lack of serious cases.
Continue to be careful not to leave your villa in rural Nanjo.
Next, typhoon No. 5. Several have come in the past week. First, typhoons form in the waters between Ishigaki and the Philippines. Ishigaki and the main island of Okinawa are more than 400 kilometers apart (about the distance between Tokyo and Osaka), so typhoons usually weaken when they come to the main island of Okinawa.
Again, the wind is strong, but so far so good.
When you think about it dispassionately, human perception is often not factfulness (seeing the world correctly based on data).
Japanese news reports things in units of Japan, so even if there is an earthquake in Hokkaido, it is reported by a television station in Okinawa, which has nothing to do with the earthquake. Even on ゙, there is a breaking news ticker.
Rather, it would be more practical for Okinawans to share news and weather in the economic zone between Kyushu, the Okinawan islands and around Taiwan. And many everyday vegetables and other items are sent from Kagoshima.
Maybe it’s this “Japan” unit that makes Japanese people think of everything in Japanese terms that makes them feel Japanese.
