Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 139 - 228 - 1

 = -90 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)

 = 29,185 - 27,038 - 437

 = 1,710 people

 (Capacity of 2400 people)


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 2350 beds (+150 beds for critically ill patients).

First of all, from here today …


In France, the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to a curfew from 9 pm to 6 am for (at least) a month from the 17th.

↓ is the state of “the last night before the ban” on the 16th the day before …



The article said,

“The city of Paris on the 16th, ahead of the enforcement of the ban, had an atmosphere like the end of the year, the bar table was full of customers, and laughter was heard …”



As expected, I would like to live in Europe like this, but I wonder if Japan has not spread the infection because there are many people who refrain from doing so …



However, in Ireland,

アイルランド、EU初の全国再封鎖へ 学校は閉鎖せず

 it will be locked down again for the first time in Europe from the 22nd.

(* Schools and childcare facilities will not be closed)



As such, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo has been lower this week than last week, but it seems that the infection is still “expanding” overseas.



In Indonesia,

インドネシア 感染者・死者 東南アジア最多 歯止めかからず

as of noon on the 20th, the infection situation is as follows, and it is said that it is the most common in Southeast Asia.


・Cumulative number of infected people is about 370,000

・Approximately 13,000 dead


Indonesia is about twice the population of Japan, so it’s not strange that there are about twice as many infected people and deaths as Japan, but…


・The cumulative number of infected people in Japan is about 100,000 (200,000 even if doubled …)

・Approximately 1500 deaths in Japan (3000 even if doubled …)


The infection is quite widespread in Indonesia …



That’s Indonesia,

菅首相 ベトナムからインドネシアに向け出発 首脳会談へ

Prime Minister of Japan Suga will move from Vietnam to Indonesia on October 20th.



You will visit at a great timing …




Infections are spreading overseas, but in Japan …

GoToイート予約、558万人 9日間でポイント付与49億円分

Recently, “Go To Eat” has been talked about in both good and bad ways, but in the (only) 10 days from October 1st to 9th of this month when the system started, about 5.58 million people have already made reservations!

And the amount of points awarded is 4.9 billion yen.


The breakdown is as follows

Lunch: 1.31 million people

Supper: 4.27 million people


The budget amount of the point business is 61.6 billion yen, so if it will increase further, if 61.6 billion yen is about 10 times 4.9 billion yen … It seems that it will be used up by the end of the year …



And the same “Go To Eat” business “Meal ticket with premium” is on sale, but in Kyoto it seems like the following situation!

Pre-order reception for 100,000 books on October 7 Sold out in 5 hours

200,000 books on October 20 → sold out in 40 minutes


By the way, next is October 26th, which is about 500,000 books, but it seems that it will be sold out sooner …



Everyone is going to play and eating out unexpectedly. .. .. ..




… But it’s a good thing for people in the restaurant industry.

Yeah, let’s think so.




And there are only two more things I would like to share with you in the news about the new coronavirus (COVID-19)!



First here!

PCR検査に民間企業の参入 「早急に仕組み作り検討」厚労相

Regarding the PCR test for the new coronavirus (COVID-19), private companies are entering the market one after another to test for those who wish to test even if they have no symptoms (for work or travel purposes).



To test itself is a good thing!

But there seem to be some problems …

陽Even if it is positive, it is not a law to report to the health center, and there seems to be a test of a private company that does not have a doctor, so it is scary to think so…



In the first place, if a doctor comes in and tests it, it seems that the test is reliable even in a private company, so I’m glad that the test is done in the private sector and (maybe) when I take the test. , Otherwise I’m a little scared.



Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura said, “We will consider creating a system as soon as possible”!




The last topic is good news!


Following the vaccine being developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca, the vaccine being developed by Pfizer States has also started clinical trials in Japan!

(Phase 1 and Phase 2 trials)


It is said that 44,000 people are already conducting Phase 2 and final Phase 3 trials in the United States, Germany, Brazil, etc.



Regarding Pfizer’s vaccine, the Japanese government seems to have contracted to receive “about 120 million doses in the first half of next year (supplied in June in the first report)”, but it is moving forward step by step.



After that … I wonder if it will be supplied to Japan sooner …



I think for a moment!







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) 94,727

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1693

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 87,172

= 5,862 people ( -193)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

It is steadily decreasing today!




Speaking of news that I’m interested in these days … it’s usually “illumination” or “food”



Autumn of appetite … Yes, it’s because of autumn! (lol)



And here is the news that interests me today,


“Strawberry candy” has been booming for a while, but it seems that the “strawberry candy” specialty store will sell “grape candy” for a limited time!



It looks delicious!


I’ve never eaten “strawberry candy”, so I’m curious about that too!



Period: October 16, 2020 (Friday) -November 30, 2020 (Monday)
Stores: All Strawberry Fetish stores
Store list: SHIBUYA109 Shibuya store, Harajuku Takeshita-dori store, Nagoya Osu store, American Village store, Kobe Harborland umie store, Aeon Mall Sakai Kitahanada store, The Park Front Hotel store



Takeout is perfect for preventing infections!

But … it’s getting cold, so be careful not only to prevent infections but also to catch colds!




Please be very careful when you go out!
