The random notes of Jun Sato in English/Japanese.
I am a middle-aged Japanese male, brought up in Tokyo and moved to Brisbane at the end of 2017.
I started my career at the Tokyo office of a global management consulting firm and dived into a bank turnaround and launching its internet channel. I've started my own business and consulting in 2006 and have grown it to around $10M revenue.
I'm very open to new business/investing/consulting inquiries to survive next year and next decade.
I am not a medical expert and this is just a hypothesis; taking BCG vaccination may strengthen immune to the novel coronavirus. If I were American/West European/Australian, I would take BCG vaccination now. Six reasons follow. I declare that there is no conflict of interest for BCG vaccination but I have a big interest in stopping this pandemic. One of my businesses is an online tourism agency and its sales have dried up!

There have come many comments on the previous post and new comments don't seem to get published anymore. From the initial, some of the comments didn't get published properly. I guess Google is not working on this Blogger seriously. Please leave your comments/inputs here regarding the BCG hypothesis, the correlation between COVID-19 and BCG vaccination. Please be aware that the Blogger comment system seems buggy and some comments don't get published. I try to check the incoming comments and post the comments if I notice they are not published, but I'm not perfect and my time is limited on this.

This is a supplement analysis of the previous post . Supplement but important because this is the first analysis in the world that quantifies the difference of people who were vaccinated and those who were not in the same countries. The age group comparison between Italy, Spain, and Portugal should be interesting because three countries had different BCG policies and the same strain, BCG Denmark has been used. Let me look back at and dig into the detail of the BCG policy for each country. Italy: never mandatory Spain: mandatory from 1965 to 1981 for newborns from http://www.bcgatlas.org/ . But the BCG Atlas is incomplete again. Schoolchildren from 6 to 14 years old had vaccinated from 1965 to 1976*. From 1956 to 1965, 80% of children who were 5 to 14 years old were vaccinated**. -> Spanish from 39 to 78 years old has been vaccinated. Portugal: mandatory from 1965 to 2017 for newborns from http://www.bcgatlas.org/ . And I guess same schoolchildren vaccination for Portugues
