The number of new infections in Tokyo happened to be exactly the same as last week!

Monday is stable with a small number!



Well, I will summarize

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

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 26,810 ( +233)

 *( )= 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)

 = 78 - 233 - 0

 = -155 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)

 = 29,046 - 26,810 - 436

 = 1,800 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.

(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)

Today, I’m really interested in the news of virtual reality (VR) regarding “remote”, so I would like to introduce it!



First from here

電機メーカー ネット上にショールーム コロナで減った顧客獲得

↑ This is a video linked to, so I’d like you to take a look, but it seems that each electronics manufacturer (probably for corporations) has set up a showroom in a virtual space for product information!



Since it is “for corporations”, the staff seems to guide me through the products, and if there is such a thing, they can handle overseas customers as well!



I wonder if this technology can be used to do something for general customers …!

Our dreams will spread! (Lol)



And another news,

ソニー 裸眼3Dディスプレイ公開 「空間表現」新時代

It seems that Sony has developed a display that allows you to see 3D images “with the naked eye”!

Above all, the video is impressive! (Lol)



With this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease”, the technology will continue to evolve!



That’s the news of virtual reality (VR) that I was too interested about! Lol




And the news about the new coronavirus (COVID-19),

First here,

全国高校サッカー選手権 コロナ感染対策取ったうえで開催決定

Unfortunately, Koshien in the spring and summer has been canceled due to this new coronavirus (COVID-19), but it seems that the national high school soccer championship in winter (year-end and New Year holidays) can be held!

(*Koshien is a national high school baseball tournament and is watched by all Japanese people. )



It was really good!

It’s the culmination of a year, and it will lead to the future (professional soccer, etc.)

I would like them to take proper measures against infectious diseases and hold such events as much as possible…



Also, in terms of “future”, there was such news today.

コロナで就職活動影響 厚労相「卒業後3年は新卒者扱いで」

Based on this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease”, Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura seems to request the business community to thoroughly implement the national policy of “Setting to target new graduates within 3 years after graduation”!

(*In Japan, Almost Companies set to target only the students with new graduates as target of recruitment)



It’s a really nice response for job hunting students!


“Then we don’t have to forcibly hire this year!”

In that way, I really worried that companies may hire less this year, or that next year and beyond will be a fierce battle with several years’ worth of job hunting students …




And to change the story, recently there was quite a pattern of “counting the number of newly infected people and then withdrawing and correcting it at a later date”, and one of the causes was found in today’s news!

横浜で相次ぐ「陽性」取り下げ 抗原検査、簡易迅速も精度低く

There are three major tests for the new coronavirus (COVID-19),


①PCR test

The usual test you all know

(Results can be seen in 4 to 6 hours)


②Antigen test

Results are quick but accuracy is 30% lower than PCR test

(You can see the result in 15 to 30 minutes)


③Antibody test

The test results show whether you have “antibodies to the new coronavirus”.

(Basically used to check if there is a history of infection with the new coronavirus (COVID-19))


Some hospitals seem to say, “At the time of admission of inpatients, (because the results are quick and easy), ②antigen testing is performed to reduce the risk of nosocomial infection.”

If a positive reaction occurs, the next step is to perform a PCR test to see if it is really the case. “So, if the ②antigen test is positive in the bulletin ,” count once in the number of newly infected people “and then PCR properly. If the test is negative,” it seems that the counted amount is withdrawn and corrected.



The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare seems to say, “②The antigen test is less accurate than the PCR test, so it is not suitable for testing for asymptomatic people, etc”, but it seems that the hospital is doing the tests for the measures of infectious diseases, so that’s great!



I want them to test as much as possible because they can fix it! (Lol)




And finally here

EU、レムデシビル巡る契約見直す必要 WHO治験受け=有識者

Recently, the results of clinical trials of WHO (= World Health Organization) have been in the news every day that “Remdesivir is ineffective”, but About for the distributor of Remdesivir, Gilead Sciences of the United States, the European Union (EU) seems that they are beginning to consider revising the contract with about 120 billion yen …!



The fact that the European Union (EU) is starting to take such measures is really a believable result of the WHO (World Health Organization) clinical trials.. .. ..? 



Somewhere I thought, “No, at least it works, right?” …



But we still have Avigan, so let’s spread “Abigan” developed by a Japanese company!







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) 94,245

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1690

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 86,600

= 5,955 people ( -144)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

Perhaps the number of people discharged from the hospital increased after returning to weekdays, and the number has decreased by more than 100!



In Ashikaga City, Tochigi Prefecture, the annual illuminations seem to have started on October 17th!

医療従事者に感謝 植物園でイルミネーション始まる 栃木 足利

This year they are lit up with 5 million light bulbs of blue light to thank the healthcare professionals!



It’s been getting pretty cold lately, so be careful to prevent infection indoors while dressing warm when you go out!




Please be very careful when you go out!
