In this way, except Tokyo,

the number of new infected people is usually as every Saturday, so we still have to be careful…



Even so, why does Tokyo have so suddenly decreased compared to other areas…?



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [247] new infections in Tokyo


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


[114] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 46% of the total)

[70] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 28% of the total)

     *under10 : [5] people

     *20s : [72] people
     *30s : [42] people
     *40s : [44] people

     *60s : [22] people
     *70s : [10] people

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

Number of hospitalized : 1346 ( +18)

Number of seriously ill :  32 ( +2)

Home medical treatment :  434 ( -13)

Hotel medical treatment : 275 ( +24

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” :  626 ( +99)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home:17,530 ( +119)

 *( )= 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)

 = 247 - 119 - 0

 = +128


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)

 = 20,569 - 17,530 - 358

 = 2,681 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)”,

    →Men and Women from The United States and the Phillipine United Arab Emirates and Dominica, etc, [5] people

     (*Recently, I don’t know why but there are no information on any website…)



*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 also today, I will summarize some prefectures that have a high number of infected people, not just in the Tokyo area.



*** Saitama ***

New infections are [56] people

      →There is no information today…



*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [106] people

      →There is no information today…

      ・It’s unknown which base have infected people today.

       *Cumulative 394 US military personel

       *Not included in the number of infected people in Okinawa


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

Requested to shorten the business hours of restaurants in Naha city

 (from 5 am to 10 pm)

Request for self-restraint from crossing prefectures

Request careful judgment from visitors from outside the prefecture→(August 13)

■■■Decided to extend its own emergency declaration from August 15th to August 29th for two weeks■■■

■■■Decided to extend its own emergency declaration from August 29th to September 5th again■■■



*** Fukuoka ***

New infections are [76] people

     ・Fukuoka City [40] people

     ・Kitakyushu City [4] people

     ・Kurume City [3] people








There was additional news about this, which I always post.
I’m sorry for always putting it…

*A period extension has been decided on August 27 ↓

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”…

感染対策で営業時間短縮 都知事「長くなるのはよくない」 | NHKニュース


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



↑And about this, it will be extended

from “until Aug 31″ → to “until Sep 15”

In addition, it is said that it will be canceled in the Tama area and the island in 31 days, and only restaurants in 23 wards will be exetended.


OK, I understand that government want them to get home by the end of the last train. .. lol


…Joke aside,

Governor Koike says the reason is “the number of new infections is decreasing but still large”.


That’s true… There are still more than 200 people

I don’t think it’s a problem if the government give them proper compensation but…

about compensation…,

It is said that the company that responds to the request will receive a cooperation fee of 150,000 yen.


OK, It’s just “10,000 yen a day”…


Does it mean that the shop closes at 10:00 pm is the last order at 21:00?

It’s 21:00 to 24:00 when it’s time to earn money…?

Financial resources may be tough, but I want the government to compensate properly.

This time, I would like COVID-19 to converge, so I wanted the gomernment to be the amount that everyone is convinced and will cooperate…


And in the article, the manager of an izakaya in Shinjuku said,

“It’s very tough to manage. If you want to extend only 23 wards, please explain the effect of shortening it properly.”

I think that both companies and sole proprietors are economically limited, so we really want to work together to get rid of the new coronavirus from Japan and the world.


By the way, at the izakaya in Shinjuku, sales are down by 2 hours and overall sales will drop by 30%,  so this month’s sales are down 80% compared to last year. ..


↑ Sorry for being long!

I will write another article as soon as possible.


It’s Saturday today, so the usual

 “COVID-19 Trend Calendar in Tokyo”

has been compiled for 1 week!


You can see it in a moment when you look at the calendar, but it has decreased for 3 consecutive weeks from the place marked with a black circle!

(Because other prefectures haven’t dramatically decreased so far)

We still have to be careful, but since it’s decreasing about 200 to 300 every week, I’m expecting the total for next week too!


But why did it really decrease…? 


Out of the number of new infections in Tokyo today

[114] people is in their 20s to 30s ←←←

  (about 46% of the total)

[70] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 28% of the total)

Isn’t it because that people in their 20s and 30s are steadily declining and that they are increasing in other generations has something to do? ?

     *under10 : [5] people
     *10s : [15] people
     *20s : [72] people
     *30s : [42] people
     *40s : [44] people
     *50s : [26] people
     *60s : [22] people
     *70s : [10] people
     *80s : [7] people
     *90s : [3] people
     *over100 : [1] person

If you look at it this way, the number of people in their 60s is increasing…


And today, people over 100 years old are infected. .. .. ..


However, it’s too mysterious why the ratio decreased, but the ratio in the 20s to 30s has been around 70% until July when the number of infected people was high, so the ratio has changed considerably.


Did the number of people in their 20s to 30s decrease, or did other generations increase? ..



The story changes, but today, August 29th, as I introduced in this summary article the other day, the restriction on reselling masks and alcohol disinfectants has been lifted…

きょうマスク転売規制を解除 メルカリなどは継続 – Yahoo!ニュース

In addition, it will be regulated when high-priced resale increases and it becomes difficult to obtain …


However, it was said that auction sites such as Mercari and Yahoo Auction will continue to prohibit listing!


As expected! (Lol)


It’s a little safe!



There was also news like this related to masks.

「看護師の卵」コロナで困窮 病院実習に備えバイト自粛、貯金削り昼食も我慢 – Yahoo!ニュース

Nursing school seems to be seeking self-restraint of part-time job for students undergoing practical training.

Moreover, he said that he had to “change each treatment” during the training, so it seems that the mask and disinfectant used many times a day must be paid by themselves…

Some students endure lunch and buy masks, and 60 to 70% of students seem to be in need…

It seems that there was something like a meal distribution event for a poor student.


They are “medical candidate” that is the main role in this “COVID-19 disaster”, and I hope that even such places can manage it…


By the way, one of the nursing students said,

“I want to become a nurse early and become a major force in the medical field in COVID-19.”



The story changes, but it seems that the COVID-19 is still raging overseas…

1日の新規感染が8万5千人余、世界の最多記録 インド – CNN

In India,

New infection on 26th: 85,687

New infection on 27th: 77,266

The world’s highest record was set for the second consecutive day…

The total number of

infections was 3,387,500,

and 61,529 casualties,

It seems that the spread of infection has not been stopped.


The scale is different from Japan…!


And the number of inspections that have been conducted so far is 39 million…!


Roughly assuming February to August,

39 million cases ÷ 7 months ÷ 30 days = about 190,000 cases…?

There are calculations, right?? 190,000 a day! ?

Test ability is too great…


By the way, if you try to calculate the positive rate (how many people were confirmed to be infected by the test)

Cumulative number of infected persons 3,387,500 ÷ number of tests 39 million

= 8.69%

Approximately 869 will be confirmed to infection per testing of 10,000 people.

The positive rate on August 28 in Tokyo is 4.2%, so it’s about double…


What? If it is so, the positive rate in Tokyo may be reasonably high…?



I shouldn’t have calculated it… lol


It’s a joke, but you can see that Tokyo have to alert…




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) 68,195

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1284

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 56,000

= 10,911 people ← being treated


(If it is exactly as announced)

It seems that about 500 people have sdecreased today!

It’s 500 people(?!), 500 people decreased! (Lol)



It was NHK’s article that “What the things that people want the next government in this COVID-19 disaster,”

コロナの影響続く飲食店 次の政権に求めることは… – NHK NEWS WEB

Well, the content is “Do not take time to discuss measures and do it quickly”,

but in the article I was made to think variously by the words of a woman who has been a Japanese restaurant in Asakusa for 60 years. So let me introduce you to the end.



“In our past, we could manage to eat by working hard even when the times were tough, but nowadays the younger people who are running the store say that they can not eat even if they work hard due to COVID-19. The situation continues.

In the next administration, I hope that the support that can be provided will continue in the future, so that young people can enjoy their lives.”



It makes me think a lot.



Anyway, if we can manage the “new coronavirus infectious disease”, I think I can return to a normal life, a normal job, and a normal income for the time being, so let’s all survive in this difficult time!




Please be very careful when you go out!
