Regarding the number of new infections in Tokyo, yesterday’s 493 people were described as “despite Wednesday (usually a small number)”, but today’s Thursday, when there are many infected people in a week, is even higher. ..





From tomorrow, Friday and Saturday will be more or less than Thursday depending on the week, so I have to pray that it will not increase. ..



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [534] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their 10s to 90s


[240] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 45% of the total)

Infection at a dinner with friends and acquaintances [10] people

Infection in the facility [28] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


* At today’s monitoring meeting, Tokyo set the highest “alert level” out of the four levels, but there were no requests for leave or self-restraint, and it seems that they are just vigilant …

 Aside from the irony, the expert’s view is summarized as follows: “The number of infected people is increasing, but the number of seriously ill people is not increasing, and requests for shortening the business hours of restaurants are inefficient, so I will not do it. There is nothing we can do except for the citizens of Tokyo to change their behavior. ” “Inefficiency” is (1) infection does not decrease (2) it costs too much, I don’t know which one, but as far as I can see, there seems to be no particular countermeasures …




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

Number of hospitalized : 1347 ( +7)

Number of seriously ill :  38 ( -1)

Home medical treatment :  533 +52)

Hotel medical treatment : 686 ( +79)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 668 ( +86)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 32,546 ( +324)

 *( )= 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)

 = 534 - 324 - 0

 = +210 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)

 = 36,256 - 32,546 - 476

 = 3,234 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)”

*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.

         *Cumulative 46 people


         * The number of people in the northwestern part of the prefecture adjacent to Tokyo and the city of Chiba, which had been high until now, continues to be high, and in addition, it is spreading to areas where infection has been low until now …


Chiba Prefecture has decided to business suspension request for restaurants that do not follow the guidelines of industry groups to close after 8 am on August 8.

Targets are karaoke shops and restaurants with entertainment.



*** Osaka ***

◆◆◆ Hokkaido ◆◆◆

New infections are [267] person(s)

  ・Rich contacts [133] people

  ・Unknown infection route [134] people

         *In addition to the above cumulative total, 3 other close contacts today

     ・Nosocomial infection at “Takikawa Central Hospital” in Takikawa City [1] person(s)

         *Cumulative 22 people

     ・Outbreak of “Hokkaido Fire Academy” in Ebetsu City [1] person(s)

         *Cumulative 7 people



     * In Hokkaido, outbreaks are rarely known on the day of the outbreak, and since it will be revealed and announced the next day or later, the cumulative number of people will be announced instead of the number on the day of the outbreak.





And Regarding this↓


In Hokkaido, in response to the number of newly infected people reaching 187 on November 7,

the alert level of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) was raised from “2” to “3”.

Along with that, government of Hokkaido requested that the “entertainment district at night” of ​​Susukino (Sapporo City) not be open from 22:00 to 5:00 the next morning.

* It was news that the alert level was raised to “3”, but what surprised me was that even though the number of infected people was so high, but this “alert level” has “5 levels” .. .. .. .. .. .. ..


↑Only Sapporo City will be the alert level as equivalent to “4”, and it seems that it requests refraining from going out unnecessarily and refraining from going back and forth with Sapporo City.






◆◆◆ Hyogo ◆◆◆

New infections are [132] person(s)

  ■■■ The highest number of newly infected people ever ■■■


     ・ Outbreak of boxing gym in Kobe City [1] person(s)

▽ Yamaguchi prefecture has 303 people (18)
▽ Ehime prefecture has 154 people (10)

* Today, there are too many prefectures where more than 10 people have been confirmed to be infected, so I have picked up information on outbreaks in areas where more than 50 people have been confirmed to be infected.



*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)







The number of infected people in Japan is really bad …

By the way, in the “COVID-19 Infection Prediction (Japan Version)” of Google‘s new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) status prediction system introduced the other day, the number of newly infected people [2201] in Japan yesterday on November 18 is …



Google‘s forecast on the same 18th is …



1400 … Actually 2201 …



And Google predicts that 2201 people will reach …



It was December 10th …



Infections are spreading in Japan much faster than even Google‘s global standards predict



In such a “situation where measures must be taken immediately”, or rather “a situation where measures must be started”, the reaction of politicians who take measures against infectious diseases based on the number of infected people is …


Komeito Takenaka Political Survey Chairman

“Let’s continue the “Go To (travel) Campaign” while paying attention to the economy and prevention of infection!”


Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato of the government

“Are you refraining from moving for three consecutive holidays? I think you don’t need that!”

(Because there are few reports of infection in the “Go To (travel) Campaign”)

“Just call for solid infectious disease control!”

“Excluded from Tokyo for “Go To (travel) Campaign”? I haven’t received a request from the capital.”


Prime Minister Suga

“I recognize that Japan is on the utmost caution.”

“When you eat out, mask it except when you eat it!”


Nishimura Minister for Economic Revitalization

(Leader of measures against new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Japan)

“Economic group! Do your best to prevent infection in the workplace!”

“Leave the economic measures after new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection disease!”



It was like this …



There should be a monitoring meeting in Tokyo today and a subcommittee on measures against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) of the government tomorrow, and today’s monitoring meeting raised the infection status of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tokyo to the highest alert level.

= I would like to expect “countermeasures”



…… But I only have a feeling that nothing will be done.




By the way, Tokyo is in a really difficult situation!

What’s hard is …


Governor Koike’s awareness of the infection situation is far more terrifying than the general public thinks.

Governor Koike appeared on a TV program and said:

“Take measures such as assuming that the number of newly infected people will be 1000”

“The number of positive people may increase”


The point is, “What happened because the number of infected people (in Tokyo) today is 500? I’m assuming more than 1000 people. “



I introduced the reaction of Governor Koike yesterday, but ↓


(From yesterday’s interview with Governor Koike)


 ・Governor Koike, the leader in measures against the new coronavirus in Tokyo, said this about the highest number of infected people in Tokyo today, 493.


 ”There is another record high. The number of inspections is 8600. “

 ”By testing, even asymptomatic people will be found to be positive”

 ”I think the number of positive people will increase in the future, but the basic is how to reduce the number of seriously ill people.”

 ”(About Go To Eat) I don’t recommend going with a large number of people”


→Despite the highest number of infected people ever,

 the theory is being developed that the number of infected people will be large because the number of tests is large,

 also she doesn’t seem to think about limiting the number of people for “Go To Eat”,

 and she’s only focusing on “the number of severely ill people”, and she doesn’t think much about reducing the number of infected people…


I wonder if it’s okay for her to have 1000 or 2000 if there aren’t many seriously ill people.


By the way, yesterday’s infection status by age in Tokyo is … ↓


(Infection situation in Tokyo on November 18)


[215] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 44% of the total) 

[155] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 31% of the total)

     *under10 : [6] persons
     *10s : [20] persons
     *20s : [123] persons
     *30s : [92] persons
     *40s : [89] persons
     *50s : [66] persons
     *60s : [39] persons ←
     *70s : [30] persons ←
     *80s : [25] persons ←←←
     *90s : [3] persons


↑(In spite of Governor Koike saying so) She may not be able to prevent the infection of elderly people at all …



As Governor Koike said, “It’s okay if the number of seriously ill people does not increase” is correct, but for that reason, “reducing the number of infected people” is the most important thing because there is a risk that the number of seriously ill people will increase.



And it is quite a problem that the people who take measures and the general public have different ways of thinking about the number of infected people, and only the spirit of the general public is worn out, so I would like each governments to do something about it …



It seems that she is thinking about 1000 people for the time being …




… There are too many articles I would like to introduce today! lol

I’ll introduce you quickly!


Minister Hashimoto said, The Olympics have already been decided to be held, and the only thing left to do is to take measures against infectious diseases such as the number of spectators.”

→ I think the Japanese economy will die if we don’t do the Olympics … but can we do it in this situation?


According to Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato, “Only 144 people have been infected by the accommodation facility employees who participated in the” Go To (Travel) Campaign “project by November 17th.”

From the start of July 22nd to the end of October, it was said that

[about 40 million users / of which 155 were infected].


→Actually, there seems to be more just because there is no self-report …

 For “Go To ~”, the number of infected people is not so reliable for both travel and eat.

 (At least I personally hear that more than 10 people have not been reported …)

 ↑It was positive after returning home, or because they don’t know where they got infected …



Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization, will review the guidelines for infectious disease control at restaurants in consideration of the increase in drinking parties during the year-end and New Year holidays.


In addition, Governor Yoshimura of Osaka Prefecture said about “Go To Eat”, “Some people bought meal tickets, but I’m sorry that four or more people were NG. The shop staff can blame Governor Yoshimura, ” he said in a cool way.



That being said, everyone will have a drinking party, and I know it can’t be helped, but I wonder why they can’t say “Don’t have a drinking party until the infection subsides!”



I think it’s difficult to say the opposite because the government itself is promoting drinking parties and trips with “Go To~”, and I understand that shops and accommodations are in danger of going bankrupt.

The government only needs to financially subsidize companies during this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” , and it seems that the economy will be worse if this situation continues for a long time!



Oh, by the way, the number of areas for “Go To Eat” with 4 or less people has increased, but why is “4 or more people not good”

the Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura said that

“according to expert analysis,”

70% was “5 or more” in the cluster from July to October

80% was “5 or more” in the cluster after November…






I always introduce information on outbreaks in Tokyo and other prefectures above, but I thought that the rule was that “the health center will not be certified as a cluster unless there are 5 or more people …”.



It seems that people even say, “For the government, if there are 5 or less people, there is no need to report the cluster.”

However, even if the government analyzes it thoroughly and makes a reason, it can’t be helped if the premise of the “number to analyze” itself is wrong …



In any case, in reality, the number of infected people in Japan and the local governments per day will tell us the result, so it would be best if the number of infected people could be reduced by that measures…



Rather, if you analyze it with statistics,

コロナ急増、Gotoトラベルが「きっかけ」 日本医師会長

“There is no basis, but I think “Go To (travel) Campaign” is definitely the catalyst for the spread of the infection!”,

regarding this statement made by Chairman Nakagawa of the Japan Medical Association, I would like the government to analyze changes in the number of infected people in Japan with statistics!

I think they can find out in one shot by statistically analyzing the infection situation in Japan.








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) 126,644

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1967

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 107,613

= 17,059 people ( +1106)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

The increase doesn’t stop, but … how far will it go …




The public voice for the “Go To (travel) Campaign” is as follows.


The entire:

[Agree] 37%

[Opposite] 51%


[Agree] 70%

[Opposite] 30%


[Agree] 52%

[Opposite] 39%

About homecoming and travel during the New Year holidays

[Planning] 88%

[Not planned] 11%




Am I the only one who thinks “There are more people in favor than I expected!” ?!

For economic measures or are many people going on a trip ?!

I don’t know the reason, but even if it’s not “agree = go on a trip”, it seems that about half of the people still don’t think it’s a dangerous situation …



But to tell you the truth, I want everyone to have a sense of crisis…




Please be very careful when you go out!









…I forgot the most important thing! !! !! !!

Regarding the new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine under development by Pfizer Inc. of the United States,



it seems that clinical trials have finally been completed! !! !! !! !! !! !! !!



95% effectiveness! !! !! They will apply for an emergency license in the next few days! !! !! !!



Everyone! This new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection is finally going to be resolved! !! !! !!
