I expected that the number of new infections in Tokyo will increase to some extent because yesterday Monday (95 people) was too small, but it is almost doubled…



I’m still a little nervous…



First of all, I will summarize

the breakdown of the number of new infections in Tokyo + α …!



Out of [236] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to 90s


[117] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 50% of the total)

[68] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 29% of the total)

     *under10 : [6] people

     *10s : [5] people

     *60s : [24] people

     *70s : [8] people

     *80s : [7] people

     *90s : [1] person


 [4] people is

  in 『the entertainment district at night』

  →Employees and guests such as host clubs and cabaret clubs


Infection at home [47] people

Infection at office [9] people

***  Information on people under medical treatment in Tokyo  ***

Number of hospitalized : 1522 ( -62)

Number of seriously ill :  31 ( -3)

Home medical treatment :  445 ( -73)

Hotel medical treatment : 267 ( -12

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 563 ( +29)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home:16,693 ( +332)

 *( )= increse  from the day before


Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of people who completed medical treatment)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 236 - 332 - 2

 = -98


Estimated total number of infected people in Tokyo as of today

 = (Number of positives)

   - (end of medical treatment period such as discharge)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 19,846 - 16,693 - 356

 = 2,797 people


*Tokyo currently has 8 facilities for infected people

 (Capacity of 2400 people)


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 2350 beds (+150 beds for critically ill patients).

 → Aim to secure 2,700 beds.

* In addition, we will open two specialized hospitals from September to October, and plan to add another 200 beds.


*The hotels are that,

“the b Hachiouji”, “the b Ikebukuro”, “DayniceHOTEL Tokyo”,

“Toyoko INN Shinjukukabukicho”, “Toyoko INN Tokyo Station Shinoohashimae”

“Shinagawa Prince Hotel (East Tower)”,

“APA Hotel Asakusa Taharamachi Ekimae (8/13 added)”,

“Tokyo Toranomon Tokyu REI Hotel (8/17 added)”

* 東京都福祉保健局 *3施設追加|東京都


*The source of the total number of infected persons is from 東京都





Rich contacts [92] people

   (about 39% of the total)

Unknown infection route [144] people

    (about 61% of the total)




Quarantine at the airport

  Arriving at Narita/Fukuoka Airport etc.,

    →There is no information today…



*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 information on measures against infectious diseases in Tokyo ↓

And Tokyo is from August 3,

“Request to shorten business hours to restaurants that provide alcoholic beverages“


東京都 酒提供の飲食店など きょうから営業時間短縮を要請 | NHKニュース

Target:All karaoke shops

       All restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages

        (For approximately 40,000 businesses)

Period:August 3rd-August 31st

Hours:Until 10 pm


Stores that have taken proper measures and posted a “Declaration of thorough infection prevention sticker” will receive a cooperation fee of 200,000 yen when they respond to a request to shorten business hours.


I hope this will reduce the number of infected people. ..


Even so, I think that the cooperation fee of “200,000 yen” is too small for a shop that is doing its best at high rent in Tokyo”.

I want the governmet to make it a little more like “everyone want to cooperate”.

Then I’m sure everyone will comply with the request. ..


In connection with this, Governor Koike today said,

“It is not good that the countermeasure period becomes long. I’m asking until the end of August”…

No… let’s do it until COVID-19 is controled…

The prefecture has issued its own emergency declaration because the number of records has been updated for the fifth consecutive day.

 Unnecessary going out and self-restraint request from the entire area of ​​Okinawa main island from August 1st to August 15th

*** Fukuoka ***

New infections are [60] people

     ・Fukuoka City [39] people

     ・Kitakyushu City [6] people

     ・Kurume City [N/A] people 






Comparing the number of infected people across the country.

コロナ 10万人当たりの感染者数 沖縄がトップ 次いで東京 福岡 | NHKニュース

In a week from July 27th to August 1st,

Comparing each region with the number of infected people per 100,000 population

▽Okinawa : 18.38 people / 100,000 population
▽Tokyo : 15.72 people / 100,000 population
▽Fukuoka : 13.83 people / 100,000 population
▽Osaka : 13.68 people / 100,000 population
▽Aichi : 12.80 people / 100,000 population
▽Miyazaki : 9.51 people / 100,000 population
▽Kumamoto : 8.98 people / 100,000 population

This means that the more people they have, the more the infection is spreading.

Due to the smaller population compared to cities such as Tokyo and Osaka, the number of infected people in Okinawa is remarkable…

It’s also scary that Osaka, Fukuoka and Aichi are almost the same as Tokyo…




There was one news today about the “Go To (Travel) Campaign” in Tokyo!

“Go Toトラベル” 東京については来月判断へ 西村経済再生相

This is a remarks made by the Minister of Economic Rehabilitation Nishimura at a Diet committee called the “Cabinet Committee of the House of Representatives”,

it seems that a decision will be made by analyzing the infection situation at a government subcommittee in September next month to decide whether to include the trips to and from Tokyo that are not currently included in the campaign!


If Tokyo will be included in the campaign… To be honest, it’s a bit scary…


However, I would be really happy if the number of infected people in Tokyo has calmed down by then!


By the way, Minister Nishimura said in the same committee that

(about 100,000 yen uniform benefits)

“It has the same effect as reducing consumption tax by 5%, and since it is a fixed amount of 100,000 yen, it has a great benefit to people with low income more than wealthy class.”


In a nutshell,

“it means that it is more benefit to people who are with annual income of 1 million yen than who are with annual income of 100 million yen, right?”


No no no. .. .. ..


If that’s the case, you shouldn’t give 100,000 yen to a person who earns 100 million yen a year, and should give 200,000 yen to a person who earns 1 million yen a year…

I cannot help thinking like that.


But apart from the annual income,

I’m a little wondering if enough money has arrived for people who are really in trouble.

I hope that…


I think that they give 100,000 yen per person to make it fair, but compared with people who actually went bankrupt the company, people who were okay or people who were originally unrelated to COVID-19 and had a stable income (rent income, etc.), I think the situation is so different, so I think “is that really fair?”




And back to the story,

the politicians have responded to Minister Nishimura’s remarks about whether to include Tokyo in “Go To (Travel) Campaign”, so I will summarize it!



Here’s what politicians say about including  or not Tokyo

in  “Go To (Travel) Campaign”


Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga “If added, the effect will be great.”

・”If the infection calms down, you can include arrivals and departures in Tokyo,” said experts at a government subcommittee.

・Tokyo has a large population, so if it is added, hotels and inns will be a big plus.


Communist Party Chairman of the National Assembly Countermeasures Committee Kokuta “Do all possible to prevent COVID-19 infectious diseases”

・・It is not necessary to do this “Go To (Travel) Campaign” itself rather than whether to add Tokyo.

・It is not certain how economically it will be, and on the contrary, there is a risk that infected persons will spread.

・Now, we should do our best to prevent new coronavirus infections.


Social Democratic Party Fukushima leader “Tokyo addition should be avoided”

・The spread of infection has not stopped in Tokyo, and the number of seriously ill people is increasing.

・If the “Go To (Travel) Campaign” allows a trip to/from Tokyo, the infection may spread nationwide.

・Tokyo arrivals and departures should be avoided, and the Campaign itself should be stopped in the first place.


Governor of Tokyo Koike “I want to see what the shape will be”

・I would like to see what happens because it is a government business.

・First of all, Tokyo is working to prevent the spread of infection, and is asking the cooperation of business Offices and residents of Tokyo.


Governor of Kuroiwa, Kanagawa Prefecture “Thank you for coming from Tokyo”

・Some people say that the spread of infection in Tokyo has passed the peak.

・If the number of infected people really decreases, it would be great if tourists would come from Tokyo in the “Go To (Travel) Campaign”.


Governor Ono, Saitama Prefecture, “Things to and from Tokyo should be carefully considered.”

・Although the number of infected people in Tokyo has decreased a little, it is by far the highest in the whole country.

・Travel to/from Tokyo should be carefully considered.

・Thanks to the official support, but the “Go To (Travel) Campaign” is too early to start.


Chairman of the Japan Medical Association Nakagawa “Thorough infection control measures”

・The Japan Medical Association says that it is necessary to make an effort to end the infection rather than balance it with the economy.

・If it is the result of the government’s policy with being distressed,
Not “good and bad”, but we should take thorough measures to prevent infection.


“Go Toトラベル” 東京については来月判断へ 西村経済再生相


Most are the opposite.

I’m surprised that almost everyone is too opposed. .. lol

No, of course, I’m completely the opposite too. lol


First of all, “control of COVID-19” is still a major premise.


But about remarks of the Japanese Medical Association,

・If it is the result of the government’s policy with being distressed,
Not “good and bad”, but we should take thorough measures to prevent infection.

I was surprised to show understanding to the government like that.



By the way, the reaction of the city is. ..


A male living in Saitama prefecture

“I think it’s good for service and travel industry.”

Office worker male in Tokyo

“It was sad that I hadn’t been the target so far. “

“Thanks for being targeted, but I am worried that I will be disliked or annoyed at the destination.”

Housewife in Tokyo

“My parents’ house with my grandmother in Sendai didn’t want us to go back in Obon season.”

“I don’t want to use that Campaign if it is included because I don’t want to infect to and be infected.”


Yes, ordinary Tokyo people understand the situation of themselves……


Anyway, first of all, I would like to control COVID-19, drive out the virus from Japan, and then regain my usual daily life and enjoy it to the fullest!




To change the subject,

This is the article about the vaccines and remedies that I always post! 

I’m really sorry that every time those summary article were long…


The article is here ↓


↑The content is really hopeful, and there are many people who do not know it yet, so please read it by all means!


In the first place, the vaccine may be approved in a month or two! ?

Then, this “COVID-19 desease” will be over at once!

You can have a normal life! ? ? !! ? !! (Crying)



*By the way, it seems that Anges Co., Ltd., which is leading the vaccine development in Japan, has successfully completed the first and second clinical trials…

 アンジェス—コロナワクチン、第1・2相臨床試験の接種完了および今後の臨床試験の予定を発表 | 企業情報FISCO

However, the commentator said, “I’m hoping for Japanese vaccine…”

But when it comes to the news, we (like me who is the general public) probably think that “I don’t care what country the vaccine is, so I want to take the fastest and safest vaccine early.”



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.


(Number of people infected nationwide) 65,616

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1243

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 52,347

= 12,026 people ← being treated


(If it is exactly as announced)



There are about 300 people decrease today!



There was such news today,

新型コロナ 茨城県が入院患者情報を一元管理 試験運用開始

it seems that Ibaraki Prefecture has created a system that can collectively manage inpatient information!


An information management system for new corona-infected persons in Tokyo, which was introduced in this summary article at the beginning of August earlier↓

In Tokyo, they finally started to operate

“HER-SYS, a system that can manage infected person information”

instead of collecting infected person information by fax from each public health center!

東京都 新型コロナ感染者の情報管理システム 運用開始 | 新型コロナウイルス | NHKニュース

It seems that the patient himself can also input from the smartphone. I hope this will reduce mistakes, speed up detailed presentations, and improve analysis so that pinpoint countermeasures can be taken!


I’m really looking forward to it!

Is it like this?


However, this system seems to be out of order now…


The government should create such a system for the whole country first, rather than the “contact confirmation app/COCOA” that has many malfunctions!


…is what I think.  lol



Hot days continue every day.

Masks will continue to be difficult, but let’s all work together for a while longer!




Please be very careful when you go out!

  1. Catherine より:

    I used to be able to find good information from your blog posts.

  2. Milford より:

    May I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual who really knows what they are
    talking about online. You certainly understand how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More people ought to check
    this out and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more
    popular since you definitely have the gift.
