Until yesterday, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo was about the same as last week, but today it has increased all at once. ..



Last week was [211 people], but today is [276 people] …

I hope the infection hasn’t spread again …



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [276] new infections in Tokyo


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


[127] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 46% of the total)

[95] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 34% of the total)

     *under10 : [1] people
     *10s : [10] people
     *20s : [56] people
     *30s : [71] people
     *40s : [57] people
     *50s : [38] people
     *60s : [23] people
     *70s : [10] people
     *80s : [7] people
     *90s : [3] people
     *over100 : [0] person


[4] people is

  in 『the entertainment district at night』

  →Employees and guests such as host clubs and cabaret clubs


Infection at home [39] people

Infection at office [19] people

Infection at a dinner with friends and acquaintances [11] people

Infection in the facility [5] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


・People whose infection was confirmed by the notification that they may have made rich contact with the contact confirmation application “COCOA” [5] people


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

Number of hospitalized : 1182 ( -66)

Number of seriously ill :  23 ( -1)

Home medical treatment :  39 ( -12)

Hotel medical treatment : 186 ( -3

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” :  494 ( +132)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home:19,812 ( +225)

 *( )= 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)

 = 276 - 225 - 0

 = +51 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)

 = 22,444 - 19,812 - 379

 = 2,253 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 [116] people

   (about 42% of the total)

Unknown infection route [160] people

    (about 58% of the total)




Quarantine at the airport

  Arriving at Haneda/Fukuoka Airport,

    →Men and Weman from Swiss, The Philippine  [3] people


*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.

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!

Regarding this, It seems that the request will be lifted on Sep 15 as  expected.




First and foremost today! Let me introduce this topic …!

I told you about this yesterday, but there’s a follow-up!↓


Related to that news, which I put in this “Summary article” as follows, There is new information about that…

First of all This is the “Summary artcle” I always put in.↓



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!


Regarding this special news,

Today I have some worrisome news…

アストラゼネカ 新型コロナのワクチン 臨床試験 一時的に中断

英オックスフォード大、ワクチン治験を中断 参加者に副作用

A new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine being developed by British pharmaceutical giants AstraZeneca and Oxford University, but seems to have temporarily suspended clinical trials



I have introduced this vaccine under development by AstraZeneca and Oxford University many times in this summary article and so on, and this is the fastest vaccine in the world scheduled to be completed in September this month. But…



After reading the article carefully, apparently a clinical trial conducted in the UK confirmed that one vaccinated person had severe symptoms.

It is said that the causal relationship with vaccination is unknown, and it seems that specific symptoms are being investigated.



By the way, this final stage clinical trial (Phase 3 trial), which has been conducted for several weeks, is said to have participated in a total of 30,000 people from the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil, and South Africa.



It seems that this clinical trial has been conducted in Japan since the end of August.

(By the way, Japan seems to have been temporarily suspended due to this time.)



I would like to summarize some of the reactions of experts.


BBC Fergus Walsh Medical Editor

“It is not uncommon for large-scale clinical trials to be interrupted. Every time a participant is hospitalized for unknown reasons due to poor physical condition, it is interrupted every time.”



Oxford University spokeswoman

“Some people get sick by chance in large-scale clinical trials, but in the case we need to be carefully verified separately from the clinical trial.”



Professor Ken Ishii, Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo

“It’s unclear why it stopped, but clinical trials sometimes stop.”

“Vaccines cause an irreversible immune response once they are hit, so there should be no safety issues, so you should watch over each and every thing, not happy or sad.



Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Japan

“It is not uncommon for clinical trials to be interrupted at the final stage.”

“It’s not a discontinuation, it’s just an’interruption’, so I don’t think it will affect Japan’s vaccine security at this point.”



Specially Appointed Professor Tetsuo Nakayama of Kitasato University

“Safety confirmation is indispensable for vaccine development. In the third stage clinical trials, the number of subjects will increase and it is not known what will happen, so it is important to thoroughly verify any undesired reactions.”



Approximately 30,000 people are conducting this final stage clinical trial, and one has symptoms …

I hope it’s not a side effect of the vaccine …



And I hope that one of them who has symptoms is safe because he is also participating in the clinical trial…



In this time when “I’m looking forward to completion soon”, I got some anxious news…




the vaccine being developed by American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer is scheduled to be completed in October, so don’t give up hope and wait for the information after that!



And in connection with that …

新型コロナワクチン開発 製薬会社など9社“安全最優先”宣言

Nine companies, including AstraZeneca, a major British pharmaceutical company that develops vaccines for the new coronavirus (COVID-19), and Pfizer, the United States, have jointly announced a declaration that

“we will proceed with the development of safety in the best possible way”!


・ Vaccine safety is our top priority.

・ Always give top priority to the health of the inoculators.

・ After confirming safety and efficacy through three-stage clinical trials, proceed to approval.


It seems to emphasize these.


And in the same article, a survey of about 20,000 people in 27 countries, including Japan, conducted from July to August this year found that 26% of those people were  worried about their health effects about vaccination. They said They were reluctant to give vaccination.



I want you to be able to get vaccinated as soon as possible, but safety is also important …



News like this ran all over the world with despair yesterday,

But there was no follow-up report on major Japanese news sites (Yahoo, NHK, etc.), so I investigated and summarized this!



The result is … it looks reassuring! (lol)



I’m sorry, I haven’t had time to write an English version of the article, and I’ve only written a Japanese article … If you can translate Japanese, please read it!
But I’ll explain it briefly below the link!


こんにちは! もう9月になっちゃいましたね! この『コロナ禍』も本格的になったのは3月頃だったと思うので 『まだ半年しか経ってないのか。。。』 というのが正直な所ですよね…! だってもう2,...


In summary,
① The clinical trial was suspended because one British woman began to develop neuropathy of the spine.
② She seems to be able to leave the hospital today.
③ They are likely to be able to resume clinical trials next week.
④ It seems that the disease and clinical trials are not related.



The story changes, but what happened to the number of newly infected people [276] in Tokyo today?

Up until today, this week has come a little less than last week, but today it has increased all at once …



At the wrong time, like above news that the cancellation of the request to shorten business hours, there was one more news…



Nishimura, Minister for Economic Revitalization, said at press conference that,

「Go Toトラベル」東京も来月1日から対象に調整進める 政府

“I heard that the alert level in Tokyo has been lowered by one level. I would like to have an expert analyze it at tomorrow’s subcommittee and discuss whether the “Go To Travel Campaign” will also target Tokyo.”


It is said that the final adjustment will be made from October 1st next month …



The timing is too bad…! (Angry)

Do you say that on the day when the number of newly infected people increased sharply to [276]? !!



“Release of request to shorten business hours in Tokyo” is a statement by Governor Koike, but Governor Koike and Minister Nishimura always make such statements at such bad timings, and do not take measures when measures should be taken.・・・



I really hope this doesn’t spread the infection again. .. .. ..



All the Japanese are really scared because these two people are in charge of COVID-19 measures …



Now, let me introduce two more general news! Lol



The first one is here!

紅白歌合戦 新型コロナで初の無観客開催へ

This year, the red and white song battle will be held with “no audience”!

(*Red and shite song battle : A song program on December 31st, a traditional event in Japan)

I can’t imagine anything!

By the way, it seems to be the first attempt!



Another one is here!

温かさ感じるマスクなど 新しい生活様式商品の商談会 大阪

It seems that a business meeting has begun in Osaka City to introduce miscellaneous goods that match the new lifestyle of the new coronavirus (COVID-19)!


In the article, “a mask that feels warmth” was introduced, but it is said that you will feel warmth in 10 minutes.




Well … the mask … it was warm in the first place …




Am I the only one who thought? (Lol)




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...




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) 74,755

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1,432

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 65,494

= 7,829 people ← being treated




(If it is exactly as announced)

Even less than 8000 people!



I’m pretty worried about the number of new infections in Tokyo today [276] and the number of recent infections in Kanagawa [(today) 112] …


Areas other than Kanagawa near Tokyo are decreasing, such as Saitama (30) and Chiba (28).


Let’s stay alert and take preventive measures against infection!




please be very careful when you go out!

    I’m not sure why but this site is loading extremely slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  2. Celesta より:

    This website was… how do I say it? Relevant!!
    Finally I have found something which helped me.
