The number of new infections in Tokyo was 170 people today!

It’s the same number of the same day of last week (Tuesday last week)!



When it’s decreasing, I’m a little worried before the announcements, whether it may be increase… on the contrary…



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [170] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to over 100s


[86] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 51% of the total)

[50] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 29% of the total)

     *under10 : [4] people
     *10s : [7] people  ←←← 0 person!
     *20s : [41] people
     *30s : [45] people
     *40s : [32] people
     *50s : [18] people
     *60s : [8] people
     *70s : [6] people
     *80s : [6] people
     *90s : [2] people
     *over100 : [1] person


[6] people is

  in 『the entertainment district at night』

  →Employees and guests such as host clubs and cabaret clubs


Infection at home [25] people

Infection at office [8] people

Infection at a dinner with friends and acquaintances [10] people

Infection in the facility [7] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


・It seems that a total of 6 people have been infected at Komagome Hospital (Bunkyo Ward). It is said that 87 people will undergo a group test …


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

Number of hospitalized : 1228 ( -77)

Number of seriously ill :  21 ( -3)

Home medical treatment :  392 ( -62)

Hotel medical treatment : 179 ( -27

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” :  402 ( +61)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home:19,440 ( +269)

 *( )= increase  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)

  170人 - 269人 - 6

 = -105 people


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)

 = 22,019 - 19,440 - 378

 = 2,201 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 [73] people

   (about 43% of the total)

Unknown infection route [96] people

    (about 56% of the total)




Quarantine at the airport

  Arriving at Haneda Airport,

    →Male in his 30s from …”Unpublished”  [1] person


*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 [63] people



*** Kanagawa ***

     →2 days worth because yesterday’s announcement was postponed due to a typhoon

     →Sep 7 : [17] people

     →Sep 8 : [11] 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.



In prefectures other than Tokyo, “the place where there is much” and “the place where it is decreasing considerably” have become clear.



Today I will start with this topic!

石破氏陣営、『あつ森』利用を断念「確認不足だった」 自民党総裁選

I’m just worried about the extra news and I can’t find the news related to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) at all! lol


I had this feeling of being unable to concentrate in the past, …somewhere…


Ah! That’s the same as feeling like I was doing too much extra during exam week and getting a “F (failed)” in the test… lol


By the way, in the article, (lol)

the other day I introduced Mr. Ishiba’s “Atsumori (=Atsumare doubutsu no mori)” news as follows,


(From the summary on September 6)



Today’s topic starts with…

石破氏「あつ森」活用へ バーチャル空間で交流



Following Biden’s candidate for the US presidential election the other day, Mr. Ishiba will use “Atsumori” in the election campaign for the presidential election in Japan this time…



***This is only for English article…****

Do you know “atsumori”?

It’s the Game software of Nintendo Switch,

The correct name is “Atsumare! Doubutsu no mori” in Japanese.

It means “Let’s gather! This is Animal Forest”, and

English name is “Animal Crossing: New Horizons, ACNH”.

Is this a popular in your country?




If I was thinking “America is amazing … Do you have elections even in the game …”,

it was even in Japan!



…I found such an article today when I was looking for news related to the new Corona, so I picked it up without thinking… lol



By the way, the article in the United States the other day is this ↓

(From the September 2 summary)


Now, from today’s topic…

米大統領選 バイデン陣営、ゲームに進出 「あつ森」で選挙看板PR – Yahoo!ニュース



“Biden Candidate” in the US presidential election seems to be promoting the election in Nintendo’s game!!



You say “It’s not related to COVID-19!!”, right?




everyday I always be checking the news about COVID-19,

but sometimes I find such a funny news…lol



Regarding to above articles, he said he had abandoned the use of “Atsumori (=Animal Crossing: New Horizons, ACNH)” for his campaign activities

because of “violated Nintendo’s rules prohibiting the use of things including political claims.”




What are you doing…



Even so…



This face! lol


I understood the way the image was cut out was good, but he looks sad from this picture, so I can’t stop laughing…. lol




And as usual, the main subject is from here!

There were so many news I would like to introduce today, so I’ll put it together quickly!



西村経済再生相 イベント開催制限 緩和の可否を近く判断へ

Nishimura Minister for Economic Recovery will decide at this week’s government subcommittee whether to further relax event restrictions.



・Number of participants 5000 or less

・Half or less of the capacity of the venue

Whichever is less is the upper limit!


There are professional sports such as soccer, live performances, concerts, etc., but I think that the people who run it are close to the financial limit,

but in order to prevent the spread of infection, a little more I don’t want them to ease yet…I think it’s a difficult place…



And there were two news about the “Go To ~” business!

「Go Toトラベル」クーポン 10月1日から利用可能に 赤羽国交相 – NHK

The “Go To Travel Campaign” is currently discounted only for the travel price, but it seems that coupons that can be used at tourist facilities and souvenir shops will be available from the travel departure on October 1st!



Speaking of which, it’s about the holiday season!


Oh… I want to go to Kyoto…! 

(For japanese, speaking “Autumn” in Japan, It’s absolutely “Kyoto” !)



And regarding “Go To Eat”

「Go Toイート」8日以降 飲食店募集 感染防止対策求める

It is said that the application for the restaurant participating from 8th has started today …

I think that it will start in mid-September…!




And the topic changed suddenly …

新型コロナ 東京駅にマスク専門店オープン

It seems that a mask specialty store has opened in Tokyo Station!





Until this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease”, the image of “mask = simple white” was strong, and even foreigners of Asian origin sometimes wore “colored masks”.

So when the topic of handmade masks began to appear on the news and on TV, I was wondering “Is it going to take root?” But everyone have their own masks!



And the story changes,

it seems that the hospital is operating a robot that kills the new coronavirus (COVID-19) by applying strong ultraviolet rays!

強力な紫外線当て新型コロナウイルス死滅 ロボット開発

However, since it is harmful to the human body, it is being operated remotely during times when there are no people.



If a robot that is not harmful to the human body and can be used during times when there are many people, it would be safe to walk further outside!



Is it too convenient? lol




And I’m sorry, this too gratifying information I put together yesterday is too long, so I was thinking about re-writing another article, but today I couldn’t put it together…

Let me put it on for a few more days…

And if anyone who doesn’t know this too happy news, please tell them!


日本国内での新型コロナワクチンP1/2相臨床試験開始  アストラゼネカ – ロイター

英国ワクチン日本国内で臨床試験開始 – 0テレNEWS24

What! finally!

I always post at the bottom,


When will the vaccine arrive in Japan?! [COVID-19]
*** This article is written with the help of Google Translate... *** Hello! Thank you for your inter...


It seems that

“The world’s fastest new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine being developed by the University of Oxford and the British pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca”

has already started clinical trials in Japan! !! !! !!


I’m too happy…!



…I’m sorry, I’m too excited. lol


As I have already introduced it to you in this summary article, so I think everyone knows it, but this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine AZD1222″, which is likely to be completed at the fastest in the world, is scheduled to be completed in England in September.

And it is said that supply will start in the end of September or October in the world, and it will be supplied to Japan in January!



But are the clinical trials already started?!



The “vaccine” that fundamentally solves this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” and returns us to normal life is approaching to that point!



We’re too happy! 

The dinner is red rice tonight!

(*In Japan, we eat red rice on celebration days. lol)




I’m sorry I didn’t convey the information because I expressed happiness too much… lol


A clinical trial of this vaccine has been started at several hospitals since the end of August last month, and it will target approximately 260 men and women over the age of 18.

(The clinical trial has three stages, but it seems that the first and second stages will be conducted.)


And they said

“First, confirm the safety and confirm the immune response to the new coronavirus (COVID-19)”.



By the way, we are conducting this clinical trial in many countries around the world,

South Africa (Phase 1 and 2 trial)

United Kingdom (Phase 2 and 3)

Brazil (Phase 3)

United States (Phase 3)

(* Phase 3 is the final test)



soon! It’s within reach!



In Japan, not only clinical trials but also special measures and AstraZeneca will do their best, and I hope that it will be supplied early in the year, not in January next year!




This is a summary of the aftereffects of the “New Coronavirus (COVID-19)” that I summarized the other day.↓

This is also too long, very sorry…

As many of you may already know, the news about the aftereffects of the “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection” has increased again recently.

コロナ後遺症「なし」はわずか13% – Yahoo!ニュース

コロナ後遺症の実態 退院後も疲労感や呼吸困難 – 日経Gooday 30+

Originally, news about this “aftereffects” began around July, observing the subsequent course of those who recovered after being infected by a hospital in Italy (you all know that the number of infected people in Italy has increased dramatically). The article published in the American Medical Association magazine was a hot topic!

Let’s summarize that information first!



◆Announcements of “Vatican Catholic University Hospital” in Rome◆


Two months after 143 patients who were hospitalized for “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection” and then recovered and discharged

(* Average age of 56.5 years, about half of 66 people are treated with ventilator etc.)

(* Hospitalization period average 13.5 days)

(About 1 month after discharge)


55% had 3 or more sequelae.

44% felt that the quality of life had deteriorated.



・53%-Feeling tired

・43%-Breathing is difficult

・27%-Joint pain

・22%-My chest hurts

*Others such as taste disorders and olfactory disorders etc.



In China and France, it is reported that “Many patients with severe pneumonia due to a “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection” have poor lung function even after recovering from pneumonia, and breathlessness or some symptom remain.”



By the way, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) which became a hot topic in Japan around 2002 is also the same “Coronavirus“, but even after half a year from the onset of SARS,  after examining 110 people,

30% of the people still had an abnormality in their lungs after 6 months, and

20% said that their lung function had not yet recovered after two years…

And it is scary that 20% of people were suffering from psychological sequelae such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) two years later



Even in the case of this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection”, there are some people who had their ventilators attached for a long period of time in the intensive care unit and who could not meet with their families for a long time to prevent infection, so there is concern about mental aftereffects.



By the way,

I searched for an article on “Sequelae in Japan”… I couldn’t find any detailed information…

回復して終わりではない新型コロナ 後遺症こそが大問題 – Yahoo!ニュース

As this article, there were a few articles about individual people who had “taste/smell disorder”. ..


But in Japan, we don’t really hear the “real voice” from the former infected person (even entertainers or SNS ) about the aftereffects, right? ?


What is the actual situation?


It would be nice if there were many people who did not become “severe,”

but I’m a little worried…



In any case, after all, “The best thing is not to get infected! “!



I’m sorry I posted a difficult story today. ..


However, if there is a person around you who’s carelessly enjoying “I’m okay with COVID-19 ~”, please tell that person…!



By the way,

新型コロナ マスク着用による感染予防の最新エビデンス

This is an article by Dr. Satoshi Kutsuna, who is a specialist in infectious diseases and is often introduced on my site, but he always makes graphs and diagrams so easy to understand. So, let me introduce a really easy-to-understand “three figures”!



*Hamster experiment to verify mask effect

*←infected hamster  /  not infected hamster→

*% = the percentage of infect



You can understand this in the moment when you see it!

(If you don’t care about being “cute” lol)


Really easy to understand the article of Dr. Kutsuna



And next one is…,



It’s a graph of “how much of an infected person likely infect the other people”!

(↑Infectious strength in the upper direction / → number of days after infection in the horizontal direction)


From this graph, you can see that,

・The infectiousness of both pre- and post-symptomatic people becomes maximal within 5 or 6 days after infection.

・Surprisingly, infectiousness is not strong among asymptomatic persons, only 5%.

Only 10% of people are infected from the environment (such as from the handrail?).







In this way, “new coronavirus (COVID-19)” seems to have the maximum infectivity during the incubation period before the onset



The conclusion is, “Before onset, infected people don’t even know if they are infected or not, so anytime we have to be careful about preventing infection!”



I’m sorry that I always put it on…

(And especially today I already introduced in above..but,)

And the information about vaccines and remedies that I always put…

The other day, on August 29th, “Japan’s Vaccine Negotiation Status” was in the news, and I knew how much could be secured now, and when the vaccine would actually be supplied to Japan, so I revised it all up!


Since this is the information that can fundamentally solve this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease”,

so If you have time, please read it!


When will the vaccine arrive in Japan?! [COVID-19]
*** This article is written with the help of Google Translate... *** Hello! Thank you for your inter...







The world’s fastest vaccine will be completed in September!

You’re already counting down!




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) 73,545

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1,411

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 63,941

= 8,193 people ← being treated




(If it is exactly as announced)

It’s steadily decreasing!



新型コロナ 入国制限緩和 台湾など5つの国と地域との間で

Starting today, the government relaxed immigration restrictions in five countries, Malaysia, Cambodia, Taiwan, Laos, and Myanmar, and resume traffic for long-term residents such as corporate employees.

It seems that Vietnam and Thailand have already resumed.


And by the end of this month, it is in talks with Singapore, and with China, South Korea, and Australia for resumption. ..



As expected, I feel that it is still a bit early…



Even though the number of new infections is finally decreasing and it is a nice place to start moving towards controlled, but the government will do it…



The trials are likely to continue like this… but vaccines will be around the corner, so let’s not lose hope and work hard on preventive measures!




please be very careful when you go out!
