Until a while ago, about the number of newly infected people in Tokyo on Wednesday was “Wednesday, which tends to be quite low in a week”, but this week, as of Wednesday, there are already 500 people …



From tomorrow, it will be “Thursday-Saturday, which is the largest number in the week”, but how many people will be infected this week…?



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [500] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to over100


[206] people is in their 20s to 30s

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

Number of hospitalized : 1629 ( -21)

Number of seriously ill :  59 ( -3)

Home medical treatment :  966 -32)

Hotel medical treatment : 716 ( +4)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 653 ( +76)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 37,348 ( +468)

 *( )= 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)

 = 500 - 468 - 5

 = +27 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)

 = 41,811 - 37,348 - 499

 = 3,964 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,

*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)

*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!”)








In Fukuoka, the day before yesterday, it seems that an outbreak was confirmed in the “Go To (Travel) Campaign”.

・2 days and 1 night from November 22nd to 23rd

・Group trip from Fukuoka to visit multiple facilities in Oita prefecture

・10 out of 21 infected


In the case of a group, it’s good because the infection is easy to understand, but in the case of an individual, it’s difficult to understand.


And they are traveling during difficult times when the infection is spreading …

I wonder if they are afraid of infection …



And finally in Tokyo, there has been progress on this “Go To (Travel) Campaign”!


In the end, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government decided that the “Go To Travel Campaign” was not a “temporary suspension” but a “call for refraining from elderly people aged 65 and over and people with underlying illnesses” …


It seems that it was decided as a result of a meeting between Governor Koike and Prime Minister Suga.



I will organize the information a little first, so if you know it, please skip the box below! Because it’s long! lol

About Tokyo’s response to this “Go To (Travel) Campaign”,

the only reason for the “call for self-restraint to the elderly aged 65 and over and those with underlying illnesses”,

Governor Koike said as follows.

“It is important that elderly people who are prone to become severely infected do not get infected”

“I had the same idea with Prime Minister Suga as a measure for the seriously ill.”



In connection with this, the Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura said, “There was an explanation in advance from Tokyo.”

The content seems to be as follows.

“As for GoTo Travel’s departures and arrivals in Tokyo, elderly people and people with underlying illnesses are likely to become seriously ill, so we will suspend or call for use until December 17, this month, and in addition, we will prevent cancellation fees from being incurred. I want you to consider.”




Moreover, Minister Akabane of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, who has jurisdiction over this “Go To Travel (Travel) Campaign,” said as follows.

“GoTo Travel is a national project, so the government will make the final decision on its operation.”

“It is just necessary to fully consider the judgment of the prefectural governor who has the best understanding of the local situation and outlook.”

As you all know, the governor’s judgment seems to be the most important!


And Minister Akabane clarified the contents of what  Tokyo (Governor of Tokyo) said in this article as follows.

“Telling the country about the current state of Tokyo”

“There are some things I want to check”

The actual contents are as follows.

①Call for self-restraint

②Handling of cancellation fee



By the way, travel agencies seem to think in this way.

“It is difficult to respond on-site unless there is a basis for convincing customers to draw a line at the age of 65.”

“I want the government and Tokyo to give explanations that customers can understand.”



When organizing some information, Governor Koike has always said that GoTo Travel should be judged by the national government, but in the end, it is handled by prefecture, similar to Osaka and Hokkaido. ..



And about

“Call for refraining from elderly people aged 65 and over and people with underlying illness”,

judging from the usual words and actions of Governor Koike, the above-mentioned judgments that you find most strange can be extremely easy to undertaind.

In a disappointing sense …



As you may know if you have read this “Summary Article” several times in the past, Governor Koike usually says, “There is no problem as long as the number of seriously ill people does not increase.”



To be honest, I didn’t think that it would appear in such a place, but apparently, as far as the response in this “Go To (Travel) Campaign” is concerned, Governor Koike and Tokyo seem to think that, “If the number of seriously ill people does not increase, it doesn’t matter how much the number of newly infected people increases. “



I think the government (government) might say, “No, I understand if it’s excluded from arrivals and departures, but it’s impossible to suspend it for people aged 65 and over …”, that’s why Tokyo’s countermeasures have become “calls” instead of “temporary suspension” … I wonder …



What?!! That’s why the response was delayed compared to other areas, isn’t it?!!



That’s how I think too much. lol



For the time being, it would be easy to explain “why the target is 65 years old or older” by providing data such as the average age of severely ill and dead people, and if “it doesn’t matter how many new infections increase”, It would be cleaner if you said that clearly!

(* I know they can’t do that …)



However, as anyone can tell by looking at the recent increase in the number of seriously ill and dead people, the number of newly infected people and the number of seriously ill and dead people are clearly linked, so I hope Governor Koike will soon notice that point!



“It’s too late by this time,” though…







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) 154,168

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2238

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 127,963

= 23,967 people ( +570)  ← 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 people discharged from the hospital is quite large, but the number of newly infected people has increased more than that, resulting in an increase of more than 500 people …




I wanted to summarize the data firmly today, but I couldn’t do it by summarizing the measures against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tokyo! lol

So I’m going to paste the latest data here!


All information is from NHK’s new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease special site!

(* Data up to December 1st the day before)



* Please look at the shape of the mountain on the bar graph!



①Number of infected people in Japan

 It has been growing rapidly since the beginning of November …!




②Number of deaths in Japan

 This clearly has the same mountain shape as “the number of newly infected people in Japan ↑”, right?!


③Number of seriously ill people in Japan

 Regarding the number of seriously ill people, the mountain is getting bigger as well as the number of infected people in Japan …



I thought you all knew it without showing me, but I introduced the “visible” shapes such as actual data and graphs!



With this, like Tokyo, “I want to reduce the number of seriously ill people!” …It is impossible, isn’t it?



Vaccines are steadily approaching overseas (at least within half a month ?!), we have a little more patience!



Until then, it’s a scary illness that may become serious and cause serious feelings, so let’s work together a little more and put up with the play and drinking party!






… I thought above was the end of today’s summary, but!


After the summary, AMAZING news came in! !! !!



Super Ultra Big ◎ × ◇ △ (Omitted)… News! !!

(I can’t say it with excitement anymore)


So please read a little more! lol


The other day, I introduced the news that vaccination may start on December 7th in the UK, but


finally the vaccine for this new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) was approved in the UK for the first time in the world!!!!



From next week (!?!?!?), Vaccines will be available in the UK! !! !!



I’m so excited that I’m sweating a lot … lol

I’m sorry!



Let me introduce you in a calm and polite manner! lol



Today, the United Kingdom has approved the new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine from “Pfizer Inc. of the United States” as “safety and efficacy confirmed”!


I was wondering if the vaccine being developed by the UK (Oxford University x AstraZeneca vaccine) was approved, so I was surprised that the Pfizer vaccine was approved! lol



I felt that an application for approval was submitted at the end of last month, but it was approved at a tremendous speed!



By the way, this ridiculously fast approval uses a review method called “rolling review” that can be used only when it is judged that there is an urgency,

this seems to be a method of steadily reviewing the data that we have found, even if we do not have all the data for clinical trials!



Well, I don’t care about that method!

The approval of that cautious Britain is already too reliable! !! !! !! Lol

(↑ The excitement didn’t subside at all! lol)



And the important future move is that 800,000 doses will be given in the UK next week!



It seems that the UK has a 40 million vaccine supply contract with Pfizer, and the population of the UK is about 60 to 70 million,

if all the supplies are inoculated, the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in the UK will end from a herd immunity perspective!



What’s more, in the UK, the vaccine from Oxford University is about to be applied for approval, so it will be possible to cover all the people this month …? !!



By the way, the trends in Japan about this Pfizer vaccine (not “under development” anymore!) Are as follows!


Pfizer’s Japanese subsidiary

“Supply to Japan is scheduled for the first half of next year, as previously announced.”


Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Kato

“There is no application for approval in Japan, but if there is an application, we will confirm the effectiveness and safety and approve it.”



It’s a little disappointing that we can’t vaccinate in Japan this month, but if this really ends the UK’s new coronavirus infection this month, it’s really, really, really exciting because it’s confirmed that “COVID-19 can be completely overcome with a vaccine”!



I’m really looking forward to the UK vaccination results!


… So, the article became very long, but it was an additional note!


I put it together with excitement …

Can it be transmitted properly? .. .. lol

If you find English strange, please let me know! lol





Please be very careful when you go out!
