The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has been high this week as well …



1There were two holidays in November (November 3rd and November 23rd (3 consecutive holidays)), so it’s easier to see the increasing trend if you think about it except for the days after the holidays …



How will this increasing trend stop? .. ..



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [372] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to 90s

 *( )= 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)

 = 372 - 467 - 5

 = -100 people


Estimated total number of infected people in Tokyo as of today

 = (Number of positives)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 41,311 - 36,880 - 494

 = 3,937 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.

▽ Gunma Prefecture has 1239 people (32)
▽ Miyagi prefecture has 1222 people (11)
▽ Nara Prefecture has 1133 people (16)

▽ Wakayama Prefecture has 462 people (10)
▽ Oita Prefecture has 309 people (14)
▽ Iwate Prefecture has 204 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!”)









As you may already know, it seems that the United States has applied for the emergency use of the second vaccine!

Following Pfizer Inc. of the United States the other day, Moderna Inc. of the United States also applied for permission yesterday on November 30th!



The new Coronavirus vaccine (COVID-19) from Moderna also seems to be highly effective.


Number of clinical trial participants: 30,000 or more

Number of infected people: 196 cases

→ Placebo administration (among infected people): 185 cases

→Vaccine administration (among infected people): 11 cases


Effectiveness is 94.1%!

This is also very effective!


There are two places to be worried about.

①Even if the vaccine is administered (although out of 30,000 people), 11 people are infected.

②30 serious cases (although they are all placebo admins)→ Reconfirmed that the infection is still too scary …


However, regarding ①, there seems to be a vaccine effect that even if 11 people are infected, it does not become serious, so I would like to inoculate the vaccine as soon as possible!


* In Japan, we have contracts for 25 million people with this Moderna vaccine by next fall, of which 20 million will be supplied from January to June next year.




The story changes again, and in Japan …

It seems that measures will be taken in Chiba Prefecture as well … but

①From December 2nd to December 22nd tomorrow, restaurants in the northwestern part of the prefecture near Tokyo will serve alcoholic beverages until 10 pm

②Refrain from going to and from Tokyo as much as possible

③Be careful especially when traveling to and from Tokyo for the purpose of eating and drinking.

It is said that Chiba citizens will be requested to cooperate with these.


What is unclear is that there are no penalties for this request and no cooperation fee will be paid.


If you request cooperation money in a short time, the government will give you support money. .. .. ??


No cooperation fee, but please cooperate with the request.
This really doesn’t make sense.



In Hokkaido, the situation is as follows as of yesterday.


     ・Nosocomial infection at “Asahikawa Welfare Hospital” in Asahikawa City *Cumulative 140 people

     ・Nosocomial infection at “Keiyukai Yoshida Hospital” in Asahikawa City *Cumulative 155 people

     ・Nosocomial infection at “Sapporo Tanaka Hospital” in Sapporo City *Cumulative 155 people


There are many other cases, but as mentioned above, there are many large-scale outbreaks of more than 100 people.


In Asahikawa City, the bed usage rate of patients with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has already exceeded 66%.



(*”Stage 4 index: Maximum secured bed occupancy rate is 50% or more”)



Speaking of this area alone, it is already in the state of “Stage 4”



In response to this infection situation in Hokkaido, Sapporo City will cancel the coming-of-age ceremony in 2021 …



School excursions for elementary, junior high and high schools, competitions such as Koshien, club activities, coming-of-age ceremony …

The important memories of various lives will be sacrificed …



That is why it seems that this new coronavirus (COVID-19) must be terminated as soon as possible.



And next is here!

Governor Yoshimura of Osaka said, “I want the government to do more important things such as COVID-19 measures. The media should talk more about COVID-19-related matters related to human life, not just crappy projects. “

On the contrary, the media refuted in the article that, “No, who did the Osaka Metropolis Plan or referendum at this time?”


Well, that’s fine, but …



What is important is that the “person in the position of governor” called “Osaka Prefectural Mayor” says as follows.

“The cooperation fee for the request to shorten the business hours is the “cooperation fee”, not the “compensation for leave of absence”. It is desirable to have a system that sets a certain standard and provides compensation for leave and compensation.
It is impossible for local governments, so I want you to do it with the national system design. “



If the government compensates for the leave of absence, everyone can refrain without worrying about it …!



At the end, I will introduce it quickly!

It seems that there are multiple cases that are being consulted with the police due to suspicion that multiple restaurants are making fictitious claims in “Go To Eat”!


There are also cases of “commercialization benefits”, but they are everywhere … people who abuse them …


In the accommodation industry, the number of guests in October has decreased by 33.6% from the same month of the previous year!

It seems that it decreased by 46.6% in September, so it has improved considerably, but …

The number of foreigners decreased by 97.3%, but on the contrary, the difference was only 33.6% …

Everyone is traveling a lot. .. .. .. ..


At the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly, Governor Koike said, “I want to control infection with short-term intensive measures.”

The following two points were emphasized in the countermeasures.

① Increase in beds for severely ill people ② Request for shortening business hours

…… Well, I feel that there aren’t enough measures at all …


Regarding the “shortening business hours” and “curfew”, there are a lot of objections from experts in the United States …

“The trend of infection spread cannot change after 10 pm”



That’s right, everyone thinks about it …

While thinking so,

I feel that it is easy for Japanese people to feel the atmosphere that “Oh, it’s a difficult situation now” because of such “requests”, so as many people as possible refrained from doing so in Japan. I really hope that this measure will be effective …







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) 151,742

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2206

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 126,129

= 23,397 people ( -38)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

As same as for the number of people receiving medical treatment in Tokyo, the number of newly infected people has increased too much in the past month, and the number of people discharged from the hospital has also increased considerably. So, the number of people receiving medical treatment is decreasing little by little…!


Is it good or bad? .. ..




By the way, it seems that this year’s “New Word of the Year 2020” has been announced!

This is “a word that can be found in future dictionaries”!

Result is…


Grand Prize: Pien
2nd place: 〇〇 Police
3rd place: dense
4th place: Remote
5th place: Mansplaining
6th place: Winner
7th place: GoriGori
8th place: up to
9th place: Glamping
10th place: Chibanian
Not selected (corona frame): Social distance, stay home, cluster, amabie, lockdown,


Yeah, I’m pretty sure it was in fashion!



But … do you put “Pien” in the dictionary …? Lol



It’s a pretty funky country, Japan is (lol)




Please be very careful when you go out!
