The number of new infections in Tokyo was lower than yesterday Thursday, but it is still over 500 today …



Until last week, “What is the third wave? There is no such definition in Japan? The government and the media were playing “word games”, but the infection spread so quickly that it seems like a long time ago …



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [522] new infections in Tokyo

Infection in the facility [32] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


*Governor Koike said,


“Since the number of tests will continue to increase, the number of positives may increase. Please cooperate to control this.” She seems to think that the number of infected people increases because the number of tests increases, and it seems that the increase in the number of infected people has already been calculated …


And in response to the extremely large number of newly infected people in Tokyo every day, she called out that “elderly people who are prone to become seriously ill during the Golden Week holidays should refrain from activities.” It seems that no particular measures are taken. ..


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

Number of hospitalized : 1350 ( +3)

Number of seriously ill :  37 ( -1)

Home medical treatment :  578 +45)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 672 ( +4)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 32,954 ( +408)

 *( )= 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)

 = 522 - 408 - 1

 = +113 people


Estimated total number of infected people in Tokyo as of today

 = (Number of positives)

   - (end of medical treatment period such as discharge)

*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,

*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)

     * 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 [131] person(s)

     ・ Outbreak of outpatient care facility in Shiso City [N/A] person(s)

         *Cumulative 19 people




* Others At this time (20:30), it seems that more than 10 people have been confirmed to be infected in the following areas …

▽ Kyoto Prefecture has 2435 people (26)
▽ Ibaraki Prefecture has 1139 people (40)
▽ Miyagi Prefecture has 1075 people (14)
▽ Gunma prefecture has 1016 people (22)
▽ Nara Prefecture has 935 people (23)
▽ Gifu Prefecture has 890 people (15)
▽ Shiga Prefecture has 720 people (12)
▽ Mie Prefecture has 684 people (18)
▽ Nagano Prefecture has 567 people (22)
▽ Okayama Prefecture has 458 people (13)
▽ Miyazaki Prefecture has 399 people (11)
▽ Wakayama Prefecture has 372 people (11)
▽ Yamaguchi Prefecture has 326 people (23)
▽ Oita Prefecture has 208 people (12)
▽ Ehime Prefecture has 166 people (12)

The number of areas with 10 or more people is increasing day by day. ..


* 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!”)







Since the beginning of November, a tremendous number of infected people have been announced every day in Tokyo and all over the country …



It seems that a meeting was held yesterday to advise the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare on infection control,

but it seems that the number of newly infected people nationwide has increased 1.41 times in a week …!



About 1.5 times! ??



It is true that the number of infected people on a daily basis did not exceed 1000 until a week or two ago, but now more than 2000 people are continuing every day…



The number of infected people has become too large, my head has become confused, and the fact that the number of infected people has been small is becoming like the distant past



By the way, it seems that this is also pointed out as the reason why the infection spread in this “Advisory Board”.


・ One of the reasons for the spread of infection is clusters that are difficult to detect infected people.

 (= No one has noticed that it will spread before being certified as a cluster, or that it is a cluster in the first place)

・Temperature drop

・Increased movement of people

・Part of Hokkaido → Situations where strong measures are required, such as reducing contact opportunities and restricting actions

・Tokyo / Osaka / Aichi → The situation is approaching the situation where strong measures are required.


“Increased movement of people” … This is … Isn’t that …?



“Go To (travel) Campaign”



Speaking of “increasing the movement of people”, I can’t think of anything other than this campaign …

Still like President Mimura of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The current situation is that there are a lot of voices (among governments and business people) that the “Go To (travel) Campaign” should be continued… 



In such a situation,

In Miyagi, where the number of infected people has been higher than ever,
As of November 19th yesterday, the bed occupancy rate was 68.8% (!?) …!



Here is the index issued by the government subcommittee ↓



Since the bed occupancy rate of stage 4 in the most serious situation is 50%, Miyagi is “a state far beyond even stage 4” …



The situation is gradually becoming such a situation not only in Miyagi but all over the country, and the other day in this “summary article” like this ↓


(From the summary article on November 17th)


It seems that the government’s cluster countermeasures team is currently dispatched to Sapporo City, Hokkaido, but this is the current situation.

According to Mr. Takuya Yamagishi, director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, who is a member of the cluster countermeasures group and is working on countermeasures for Sapporo City, the current situation is as follows.


The number of clusters far exceeds the response of health centers.

 →”Infection route identification survey” and “measures to prevent further spread” have not caught up at all.


・Therefore, priority is given to responding to “elderly facilities,” “nursing facilities,” and “medical institutions,” which are important for “reducing the number of severely ill people.”


・As a result, although they are proceeding with the identification of “rich contacts” for schools and companies with many young people and mildly ill people, they have no choice but to postpone the investigation of infection routes and measures to prevent the spread.


As a result, it is said that the following 3 are currently prioritized.

①Minimize the death toll.

②Set the number of newly infected Susukino to 0.

③Do not infect health center staff and medical staff.


Hmm …, the word “medical collapse” is the keyword in this new coronavirus (COVID-19), but in this situation, “collapse of infectious disease countermeasures” has already occurred before “medical collapse” … ??


This situation can only be seen as a “situation that has not been fully dealt with”, so if it cannot be dealt with, I think it should be a state of emergency or a lockdown …


↑ Even in Hokkaido, “the government has already set priorities”,

 but according to the expert meeting of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare that I mentioned earlier, “active epidemiological survey” to investigate close contacts and infection routes. From now on, it seems that the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare will explain to the health center how to carry out the actual survey, etc., by deciding to give priority to places where there are many people at risk of serious illness such as facilities for the elderly. …


By the way, the priority is as follows.

①Where there are many people with a high risk of aggravation, such as facilities for the elderly

②Events, etc. “Three situations where infection is likely to occur” and “unspecified majority”

③3 Situations where infection is likely to occur due to denseness, etc.


What I want to say is, “The government is in a situation where it has to prioritize! The people know it !?”



It doesn’t seem to be transmitted to those who really want it to be transmitted …



However, in such a situation,

the government will continue to provide generous support for employment adjustment subsidies in response to the recent spread of infection!


Guaranteeing salary and employment is the most grateful thing for employees!


However, as I say every time, I wonder if government will not support people who are already unemployed …

Those who started receiving unemployment benefits in the spring are already over half a year old, and the benefit period is about to end …




And finally the data!

The fact that the governor of Tokyo, Koike, has taken no measures has become a hot topic not only on news sites but also among many people.

The “rationale for not taking measures” is “because the number of seriously ill people has not increased.”


For the time being, I would like to introduce the bar graph of “Changes in the number of seriously ill people in Tokyo”!




Looking at this graph alone, it seems that the “number of severely ill” has not increased in Tokyo compared to the impact of “the highest number of newly infected people ever updated every day”.



Certainly, in the streets, in the news and on the internet, “COVID-19 is just a cold. ” There are still people who say, and I even get the impression that more and more people are getting used to the fear of viruses and thinking that way …

But we think, “we don’t have a reliable cure or vaccine for this virus yet …”, right?



Governor Koike seems to be worried about not infecting “people at risk of becoming seriously ill, such as the elderly”, but in the first place, “being infected” becomes “having a risk of becoming seriously ill”. Is that also the theory that “as a result, the number of seriously injured people should increase”?

Is it the theory that “as a result, there is no problem if the number of seriously ill people does not increase” …?

How do you deal with people who have become seriously ill or who have died before taking measures after the number of serious illnesses has actually increased?

Do you say, “Hey, you said you were so vigilant, but that’s your responsibility.”



“Preventive measures” to prevent this from happening, the governments are thinking about now is “measures (after the infection has spread)” There seems to be a considerable difference in thinking here …



The first thing that both experts and the public want the government to do is “prevention” measures …








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) 129,068

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 1982

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 109,082

= 18,004 people ( +945)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

also today, nearly 1000 people are increasing today …

From tomorrow, the number of people discharged from the hospital will decrease, and the number of people undergoing medical treatment will likely increase, but I wonder what will happen …




Speaking of news,

Regarding “remdesivir” which is also approved in Japan, WHO (= World Health Organization) has recommended that “remdesivir should not be used because it has no effect at all”. Regarding that, the Japanese government (Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato) seems to have a stance that “there is no need to review the approval.”


By the way, Dr. Satoshi Kutsuna, an infectious disease expert, said this.

“It’s not that it’s not working.”

“It is not a therapeutic drug that works dramatically, and if it is administered as soon as possible before it becomes severe, it can be expected to have some effect.”



Well originally Remdesivir looks like this ↓


It was said at the time of approval in May that “it is not a drug that works dramatically”, so it is not surprising …



It’s a scary virus like this, for which no cure has been established yet, so let’s really do our best from “prevention”!




Please be very careful when you go out!
