①Monday ②Last day of consecutive holidays (③) Tomorrow is the end of consecutive holidays,

for these reasons, I think the number of new infections in Tokyo will be considerably lower today, but still not less than 300 …



If there are more than 100 people than last week even today’s monday, the number of infected people on Thursday, Friday and Saturday is scary…



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [314] new infections in Tokyo


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


[123] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 39% of the total) 

[104] people is in their 40s to 50s

Infection at home [40] people

Infection at office [32] people

Infection at a dinner with friends and acquaintances [11] people

Infection in the facility [17] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


* According to NHK, which announces the infection status, they said

On Monday, there are many medical institutions that are closed on Saturday and Sunday, so the number of infected people announced tends to be relatively small, but the number of 314 on the 23rd exceeded 300 for the first time on Monday.”


* Also the person in charge of the city also said

Since the last day of consecutive holidays has been small so far, we recognize that the number of people today is large.”


* On the other hand, Governor Koike said,

“Unfortunately, the number of seriously ill patients as of today increased by one from yesterday to 41. I pray for a quick recovery. I think it is most important to secure a bed for the severely ill. “


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

Number of hospitalized : 1483 ( +21)

Number of seriously ill :  41 ( +1)

Home medical treatment :  750 +30)

Hotel medical treatment : 886 ( +54)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 829 ( -3)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 33,595 ( +212)

 *( )= 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)

 = 314 - 212 - 0

 = +102 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)

 = 38,022 - 33,595 - 479

 = 3,948 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”,

*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.

* 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!”)








From such a topic today …


It has nothing to do with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) (lol),

but it seems that a Dutch reporter logged in to the European Union (EU) Defense Minister’s secret video conference and it became a big problem …!


And how did you log in …

It seems that

“The document was reflected in the Twitter photo of the Dutch Defense Minister, and he found 5 out of the 6-digit PIN.”



Where should I point out … lol



By the way, according to the article, the Dutch reporter who logged in was like follows!

“After logging in, he smiled and waved to another Defense Minister.”

“(Minister attending the meeting) Do you know that you are invading a confidential meeting?”

“(Reporter) Yes, yes, I’m sorry. I’m a Dutch reporter.”

It seems that other participants laughed unintentionally …



What’s going on with security … lol

Well, it seems that it became a big problem after all, but video conferencing, remote work, etc. are often talked about in Japan in this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” , so it’s a funny but scary story …




There was great news today with vaccines!



About the vaccine of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) that solves all this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease”  Mr. Monsef Sulaui, who oversees the vaccine distribution of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, tells the situation on CNN TV!

Just the other day, on November 20, a vaccine for the new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection under development by Pfizer, a major American pharmaceutical company, was submitted for approval as an “emergency license”.

(this alone is awesome news!)



It seems that vaccination may start on December 11th or 12th! !! !!



The vaccination started earlier than I expected, so I was so happy and excited that I got goosebumps! !! lol

… Should I calm down a little? lol     Yes, I’m sorry…lol



“We plan to ship the vaccine within 24 hours of approval,” said Slawi.
“(The start of vaccination) is expected to be 11 or 12 days.”



He also said that,

“When I think about herd immunity, if 70% of the population gets immunity, life will return to normal, so from the perspective of Pfizer’s vaccine efficacy (more than 90%!), Life will be normal around May.


By the way, herd immunity means that

 ”If ○% of the people in the city have immunity, the infectious disease will be resolved.”

The point is that when three people are walking around the city and one of them is infected, if the other two are immune, the infection will not spread!

(* In this case, herd immunity 66%)



It’s a story in the United States, so this vaccine will come to Japan a little later,

(The Japanese government has contracts for 60 million people by June next year)




but if this new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection is resolved somewhere in the world, we can be confident that the “fear of the virus that we didn’t know how to solve” will disappear, so it’s really amazing!



It was such a happy news!




… That being said, why isn’t this super news so much talked about in Japan? ??

I don’t understand the meaning too much … lol


Even on Yahoo! News,




It’s only listed in the International News section, not Yahoo Top News. .. .. ..



Hey! Spread it a little more and give people hope! lol




… And finally, a little data!

From the end of last month to the beginning of this month, lockdowns (city blockades) began again one after another in European countries where the spread of infection did not stop.



In Japan as well, the spread of infection is becoming unstoppable, so I will check it how effective “state of emergency”, “refrain from moving”, and “suspension of restaurant business” are currently effective in lockdown in European countries.!



More than two weeks have already passed in each country that has begun to lock down Europe.

It is said that “the new coronavirus (COVID-19) takes two weeks from infection to being counted in the number of infected people”, so if lockdown and countermeasures are effective, it should be coming out soon!



Let’s see!




◆ The UK ◆

Lockdown from November 5th to December 2nd

Store closures other than daily necessities

Refrain from going out * The school will not be closed.

Infection status as of November 22 * 17 days have passed since the lockdown

(It feels like the increase has stopped after the lockdown!)

(However, it seems that it has not decreased so much yet …)




◆ France ◆

Curfew after 9 pm in some areas such as Paris from October 17

Lockdown from October 29th to December 1st

No going out for more than 1 hour (with fine) * Schools, factories and farms will not be closed.

Infection status as of November 22 * 24 days have passed since the lockdown

(Because the measures against Paris and lockdown were earlier than in other countries, it seems that the effect is very good!)




◆ Italy ◆

Lockdown from November 6th to December 3rd

No going out from 10 pm to 5 am

Measures by dividing the area into zones according to the infection situation

→ No going out (with fines), only take-out at restaurants, etc.

Infection status as of November 22 * 16 days have passed since the lockdown

(Is it the situation that “the increase has stopped” … it hasn’t decreased yet …)




◆ Germany ◆

(Partial) lockdown for 2-4 weeks November

Banned restaurants, closed entertainment facilities

Up to 10 people from 2 households can gather.

Infection status as of November 22 * 20 days have passed since the lockdown

(It doesn’t look like the increase has stopped, and is it still “the increase is stopping” …)




◆ Spain ◆

Continue to declare a state of emergency from October 25th to May 9th next year

The restaurant is open until 6 pm

No going out from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am at night

Infection status as of November 22 * 28 days have passed since the lockdown

(This is also over the top of the mountain, probably because the lockdown was a little faster than in other countries!)

(However, I’m worried that there are many places that are just cut off at the right end (yesterday or the latest) …)




It was like this!


“There are many places where the effect cannot be confirmed in 2 weeks”


“The effect of stopping the rapid increase of infection can be expected to some extent, but the effect of reduction is not so much” 

is it like the current situation?



This time, European countries are not “strict measures” like before, but lockdown is “compatible with the economy”, and Japan is also a very light measure such as “shortening business hours”. I have the impression that you can’t expect a dramatic effect …



It may be good that it does not increase, but rather than the “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” continuing in that way, by taking proper measures and declaring an emergency, I think it would be better to end the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and then put all your efforts into play and economy!



Either way, I think the difficult situation will continue for a while, but the vaccine that will fundamentally solve this situation is just around the corner!

Let’s survive until the vaccine comes!







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) 135,347

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2009

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 112,928

= 20,410 people ( +404)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

The number of newly infected people in Tokyo did not decrease so much, but it has decreased to about 1500 people nationwide today, so the number of people increased has fallen below 500 for the first time in a while!




By the way, NHK finally reported the detailed data on the first day of the three consecutive holidays!

It seems that the number of people in the main areas was like bellow.


Comparison with holidays from January to February before “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” .

50% decrease around Tokyo Station
25% decrease around Shibuya Center Gai
42% decrease around Sapporo / Susukino
20% decrease around Nagoya Station
19% decrease around Osaka / Umeda
56% increase around Shijo Kawaramachi, Kyoto
7% increase around Tokyo Marunouchi and Ginza
5% increase around Nagoya / Sakae Station
6% increase around Hiroshima Station
4% increase around Hakata Station



I think, “Oh? The number of people other than Tokyo and Hokkaido hasn’t decreased so much …?”, But it’s a fact that many Japanese people properly comply with the “state of emergency” and “self-restraint from moving” from the government.


So, I hope the government will take proper measures and control the infection situation well!





Please be very careful when you go out!
