The number of newly infected people in Tokyo cannot be compared because they are on consecutive holidays, but for the time being, I’m glad I didn’t exceed 100!



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [88] new infections in Tokyo


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

 *( )= 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)

 = 88 - 114 - 0

 = -26 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)

 = 24,394 - 21,654 - 391

 = 2,349 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)

↑As I wrote in ↑, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo today [88] is a number that can not be compared last week because it is on consecutive holidays…


It is expected that the reason why it cannot be compared is that Japanese medical institutions probably do not carry out many tests during consecutive holidays.



By the way, the “number of inspections conducted in Tokyo” for the past week or so looks like this! ↓


Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Total
4774 5380 2788
914 5902 4684 4330 3842 2861 1361

(* https://stopcovid19.metro.tokyo.lg.jp/)

*The Tokyo Metropolitan Government believes that it takes an average of three days from test to being counted as an infected person.

* Therefore, the number of inspections announced every day is “the number of 3 days ago”.



Well, the number of tests on Saturday is still less than usual, and it seems that there is a possibility that “the report itself will not come up” because the medical institution is closed …



It was a report of “Recent number of tests”!



Well, today is the last day of consecutive holidays!

The amount of people in each downtown area on the 21st yesterday is also shown in the data!

(* Flow of people based on NTT DoCoMo’s base station information)

連休中の人出 コロナ感染拡大前と比べ大幅増の地域も



①Comparison with before the spread of infection (average of holidays from mid-January to mid-February)

②Same month of the previous year (average of holidays in September last year)


Tokyo Sta. -52.8% -54.3%
Shinjuku -14.9% -29.1%
Ginza 0.0% -17.6%
Yokohama +4.7% -1.2%
Yokohama Chinatown +33.4% +2.9%
Umeda -18.1% -19.3%
Kyoto Station + 9.6% -16.1%
Shijo Kawaramachi +61.2% +7.1%
Himeji Sta. + 9.7% -4.2%
Nagoya Sta. -16.5% -29.7%
Sakae Sta. +4.4% -12.2%
Sapporo Sta +15.3% -14.7%
Tenjin Sta. -14.8% -18.7%
Hakata Sta. – 6.6% -16.8%
Okinawa +12.4% -0.4%
Haneda(1T) -21.1% -27.7%
Osaka Airport -27.3% -20.9%
Shin Chitose Airport -27.8% -40.1%


























Looking at this data, we can see the following.


・The number of people in central Tokyo, Aichi, Osaka, and Fukuoka is still small.

・But everywhere ↑ About 80% of people are returning to the center

・There are quite a few tourist attractions returning, and there are more tourist attractions in Kyoto and Yokohama than in the previous year (←? !!!)

・It seems that there are still few airports, but on the contrary, about 80% has recovered.



Well, it feels good economically! … But it feel a little scared for the persons who are self-restraint people like me…



Let’s take a look at the situation for a week or two …




And the topic has changed here!

スマホでバスの混雑状況知らせるシステム 国が導入費用補助へ

It seems that the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will subsidize and spread the system that bus companies provide congestion status through smartphones!

Currently, some companies such as JR East are trying to popularize this system by using that “the congestion situation in the car is grasped with sensors and cameras and provided in real time”.



I really want this system too much! !! !! lol

I really wanted this!



There are many people who think so! ??

I’m too happy!




They said “We are also considering adding railway companies to the target in the future. “



It’s the best! 

(* ↑ Because I hate congestion … lol)




And finally here


(*This picture was from Chinatown)


The Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura seems to have gone out to look forward to Yokohama Chinatown!



Is it different? lol



Sorry. lol

「Go Toイベント」など 月内に可否判断へ 西村経済再生相

Minister Nishimura said that he would like to start the “Go To Event” from the middle of next month to support the event industry.



I thought, “It’s too early to recommend an event …”



Rather, I would like the government to give out the necessary amount of subsidy for a month or two with that amount of money for the event vendors so that we can fully enjoy it after it has controlled with  COVID-19 properly …



By the way, in the same article, “Go To Shopping Street” seems to be considering starting from the middle of next month.



Rather, I want you to do “Go To Shopping Street” from tomorrow!

Congestion risk due to congestion on holidays! If you don’t, you’ll just stop by more on your way home from work!





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) 80,614

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1532

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 72,307

= 6,775 people ← being treated




(If it is exactly as announced)

Few people are discharged from the hospital today, and the number has increased by less than 100 for the first time in a while…



Today is the last day of consecutive holidays and it looks like a U-turn rush.


The reservation rate for ANA’s afternoon flights is 97% (?!).



I have no choice but to hope that the infection will not spread…




Please be very careful when you go out!
