Looking at the number of newly infected people in Tokyo, which is also posted at the bottom, “COVID-19 Trend Calendar in Tokyo”,

I feel that it has been increasing little by little since last week, so I’m pretty worried …

↑ Compared to the same day of the previous week, it is increasing …?



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [191] new infections in Tokyo


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


[81] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 42% of the total)

* In addition, it is said that 1 person in his 30s is becoming severe patient today.

 (Severely ill patients in their thirties are rare, so I will report it just in case…)


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

Number of hospitalized : 1204 ( -80)

Number of seriously ill :  21 ( -1)

Home medical treatment :  401 ( -48)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” :  419 ( +80)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 20,603 ( +255)

 *( )= 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)

 = 191 - 255 - 2

 = -66 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)

 = 23,274 - 20,603 - 386

 = 2,285 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.

*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.

Well, today from this topic as follow…

Appleイベント目前! – iphone Mania



Finally, Apple’s fall new product launch event ”Times Files” is just a few hours away!

It will start at 2:00 am on September 16th, Japan time!

It is rumored that new iPad Air and Apple Watch will be announced!

iPhone12、10月13日発表、16日予約開始、23日出荷開始か- iphone Mania

However, it is said that iphone12 will be announced on October 13th …



… You say “I’m not interested” …?

Excuse me. .. because I want iphone12. .. .. lol



Everyone loves apple news, so I hope someone likes it (laughs),

but let’s get back to the main topic! Bitter smile



Today is September 15th,

the request to shorten the business hours to restaurants that serve sake in Tokyo will not be extended again, and it seems that it will end in 15th today!

東京23区内の酒提供の飲食店 営業時間短縮の要請 15日で終了 – NHK

From the beginning of September, only the 23 wards are open until 10 pm, and the government of Tokyo paid a cooperation fee of 150,000 yen to stores that fully followed this rule.



By the way, Governor Koike said at the press conference.

“Thank you to the businesses and users who cooperated. The number of positive people has remained high so far, and experts have pointed out that “it is necessary to be vigilant against re-expansion”, so I would like to ask for your continued cooperation. “



↑ The point is,

“I can’t extend the request to shorten business hours anymore, so I’ll cancel it, but it’s still far from controlled!”

, right?



I don’t think it’s easy to extend the shortening of business hours because it depends on the lives of many people,

but I hope this doesn’t mean that the infection will spread again …



And the topic changes, but next is here

新型コロナワクチン「開発並行し製造開始」 国際団体



“Vaccine production has already begun in parallel with vaccine development.”


It seems that the secretary general of the “Gavi Vaccine Alliance”, an organization that has set up a framework to fairly deliver the new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine to countries around the world together with WHO (= World Health Organization), said like above!


It is said that the production of multiple vaccines has already begun so that the nine vaccines under development currently invested by this organization can be distributed immediately after approval in each country!



The vaccine is just around the corner!

What a nice news !!!



It is said that the beginning of 2021 will be the fastest in Japan next year, but I wonder if it will be possible to take it sooner …!

It was such hopeful news!



There was also such news.

歓楽街での新型コロナ感染防止の具体策 来月めど取りまとめへ – NHK

I think that many people who read this “Summary of the number of new coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Tokyo, Japan and the world”, are concerned about the new coronavirus (COVID-19), so I think many people think this way as follows…



“Even if we control it, “the entertainment district at night” will expand again …”



In connection with this, the government has created a working group under the subcommittee to study “measures to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) from the entertainment district at night”!

An overview of specific measures will be announced in October next month.



The next measure is not the “effort goal (= measure that doesn’t seem to make much sense)” like before, but I want them to take effective measures
I think so from the bottom of my heart…



By the way, the content of this meeting was as follows.

・It is difficult to secure personnel at health centers and PCR testing centers

・Efforts to eliminate discrimination and prejudice are necessary

・Since there are many young people in the entertainment district at night, it is difficult for symptoms to appear, so infection is likely to spread

・Containment is difficult because it is difficult to obtain the cooperation of the store



Considering the lesson of “2nd wave” (it is said that the infection spread from the downtown area at night), we really want them to take measures related to the downtown area at night.



Finally, this topic …

オリエンタルランド、ダンサーに配置転換要請へ 退職も

Oriental Land Co., Ltd. (running Tokyo Disney Resort), which was generous to its employees, closed the park well, and seemed to be financially and mentally leeway, but now, they seems to be reaching its limits …
they said they started the following operations …



・Reduce winter bonuses by 70%

・Relocation and retirement of dancers who have lost their jobs due to event cancellation

  (* Conversion to other businesses such as restaurants, retirement with retirement allowance)

・The amount of leave compensation that was increased for part-time jobs will return to the original level after October.

・Further reduce executive compensation cuts by 20 to 30%



Disneyland and DisneySea were temporarily closed from the end of February to June 30th.

And even after the reopening on July 1, the number of visitors was halved.




I was honestly wondering, “Why do they have such leeway?”,

so I was personally surprised by this news,

but (even if it was 30%), the bonus was still given,

“Wow …”

I also thought. .. ..





And as for the information on vaccines and therapeutic drugs that I always post, “The past flow of Vaccine development and therapeutic drug” and “How much are currently secured, and when vaccines will be supplied to Japan” etc. are summarized!


Vaccine” solves this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” fundamentally, so if you have time, please read it!


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,...


By the way, there was also such information related to above ↓



こんにちは! 最近やっっっと、暑さが『ちょっとだけ』落ち着いてきつつありますね! ようやく最高気温が30℃を切る日が少し出てき始めました! そんな9月は皆さんご存知の イギリス...


The news of despair ran around on September 9th,

“The clinical trial of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine under development by British pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca and Oxford University, which is scheduled to be completed in September this month, is suspended.”

There was no follow-up report on major news sites such as NHK and Yahoo !, so I did some research and summarized this!


The result is … it looks reassuring! (lol)

So if you have time, please read it!


This was approved by the UK government authorities on September 13th, and clinical trials in the UK have resumed!


Also in Japan, according to the report on September 15, it has been decided that clinical trials will be resumed in stages from this week at the earliest in Japan!




Even if the clinical trials are completed in the UK and the vaccine is approved, we cannot be vaccinated unless it is approved in Japan, so I am really happy that the clinical trials in Japan will be resumed!




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) 77,284

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1,481

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 68,490

= 7,313 people ← being treated




(If it is exactly as announced)

It has decreased considerably today!



There was a lot of political news today, such as the minister being decided, and the news related to  (COVID-19) and the update of numbers were weak …



It’s not because I’m compiling this “Summary of the number of new coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Tokyo, Japan and the world” ,

but from the bottom of my heart, politics is important, but I really think we have to do something more about “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection” …




Please be very careful when you go out!
