The number of newly infected people in Tokyo was 533 yesterday, so I was afraid that “how much will it increase today …”, but I was surprised that it was less than I thought it was 449!



Compared to yesterday, people in their 20s to 40s are almost the same, but

Teens → Approximately 10 people decreased

50s → Approximately 30 people decreased

60s → Approximately 15 people decreased

70s → Approximately 15 people decreased

As mentioned above, it has decreased considerably, so it seems that the outbreak has subsided.

Even though Tokyo doesn’t give much information on outbreaks. .. ..



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [449] new infections in Tokyo


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


[198] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 44% of the total) 

[130] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 29% of the total)

Infection in the facility [54] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


* [Infection at dinner] 16 out of 21 people are in their 20s to 30s.


* Today, there were some individual infection cases such as outpatient care facilities in Katsushika Ward, elderly facilities in Minato Ward, and ward council in Ota Ward, but we could not confirm information on outbreaks. In-facility infection [54 people] and workplace infection [32 people], so I don’t think there can be no outbreak. .. ..


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

Number of hospitalized : 1721 ( +36)

Number of seriously ill :  53 ( -1)

Home medical treatment :  1159 +109)

Hotel medical treatment : 727 ( +2)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 633 ( -81)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 38,044 ( +375)

 *( )= 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)

 = 449 - 375 - 8

 = +66 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)

 = 42,793 - 38,044 - 509

 = 4,240 people


*Tokyo currently has 9 facilities for infected people

 (Capacity of 2490 people)


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 2490 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 Ikebukuro”, “DayniceHOTEL Tokyo”,

“Toyoko INN Shinjukukabukicho”, “Toyoko INN Tokyo Station Shinoohashimae”

*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!”)









It seems that it has been decided in Osaka to call for refraining from going out unnecessarily.

It seems that the situation is almost the state of emergency with the index unique to Osaka (“Osaka model”).

(Bed usage rate of 70% or more is an emergency figure-currently 63.6%)

The other day, Osaka requested that the business hours of alcoholic beverage restaurants be shortened to 9:00 pm from November 27th to December 11th (15th this time), but there was also a request to refrain from going out unnecessarily.

It seems to be held from December 4th to December 15th.


It’s 12 days, less than 2 weeks, but how effective is it …

How many companies and shops will follow …?


I’m worried about the effect!




And next is the topic of Tokyo,

A monitoring meeting for measures against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tokyo was held yesterday!

Well, the numerical data is just as everyone thinks, so I will omit it, but there were some remarks that I was a little worried about, so I will summarize it!


①The infection status has reached the highest alert level of “infection spread”, which is the same as last week.

②The situation is such that a normal bed is used for COVID-19 patients.

 (The number of hospitalized people this week exceeds 1600)



Expert teachers said,

“It is becoming difficult to balance normal medical care and medical care for COVID-19 patients.”

“In the future, we will have to limit scheduled surgery, etc.”

“It is most important to prevent the increase of new positives and critically ill patients”

, but…


Governor Koike said …

“Don’t let the dead first. Second, do not give out the most seriously ill. Third, prevent the collapse of the medical care provision system. In order to protect the citizens of Tokyo with these three pillars, we would like to focus on infection control in a short period of time. ” ..



Hey … everyone … noticed …?

There is no “controlling the number of newly infected people” …?



I think the root of these three pillars is the number of newly infected people, but even if this increases, she don’t seem to care at all …



The citizens of Tokyo may be in a terrible situation…



By the way, as I learned from the article of this conference,

about the recently talked about “positive report in private PCR test” and reported positive to the health center in Tokyo”,

It seems that there were 98 people in a week who sent samples to medical institutions in Tokyo from other prefecture and reported positives to the health center in Tokyo!



98 people (about 10 to 15 people a day?) has no effect on the number of newly infected people in Tokyo, where the infection is extremely widespread (it makes me sad to say!), but I think it’s okay to transfer the information to the local health center…, isn’t it?




And finally…

There was information about what I was worried about all the time. .. ..

A subcommittee on measures against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare recommends to prefectures that “it is difficult to balance normal medical care and COVID-19 medical care, so limit the number of hospitalizations for COVID-19 patients.”


Specifically, the risk of aggravation such as age and the presence or absence of chronic illness is scored, and those who are below a certain score will be treated at home or accommodation.


There was such a story before, and I was worried, but it seems that this will finally be introduced. ..



This is … a medical collapse …?

Because there are many people who would normally be hospitalized but cannot get medical care at the hospital …?



However, according to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, “This will reduce the number of new inpatients to less than half!”



From the expert’s point of view, the word “medical collapse” is a state where many people are dead on the roadside, so they may say “Don’t say “medical collapse” lightly!”, but

there is a risk of “that” if a person who should have been hospitalized cannot be hospitalized and is treated at home, and even though the government is telling us to be careful about family infections in the first place, I am a little worried.



But …! Either way, it’s best not to get infected!

Best of all, as many people as possible will be careful and not infected!







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) 159,123

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2319

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 131,835

= 24,969 people ( +462)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

Strange to say, “I’m a little relieved today without updating the highest number of infected people in the past,” but even so, nearly 500 people are increasing…




It is a vaccine for the new coronavirus (COVID-19) that may fundamentally solve this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” , but since the UK issued approval for use (in a very good sense!), the world has become rushed!

The EU (= European Union) is also reviewing Pfizer’s vaccine license, and it seems that a conclusion will be reached at the end of December this month at the latest!

In response to that, it seems that European countries such as France, Italy and Spain have announced vaccination plans!


And Russia also announced that it will start vaccination in the first half of next week!

Of course, the Russian domestic vaccine “Sputnik V” is used!


Russia … It was approved for emergency use in August …

What have you been doing so far …


I think that way, but …

They wanted to win the “vaccine race” and approved the vaccine early, but this time they wanted to win the race and started vaccination in a hurry?

Russia has a large-scale outbreak in parliament the other day even though there should have vaccine, is that vaccine safe …? I’m a little worried about this.


And in the UK, which is the first in the world to start vaccination next week, “What an envy!”

Fouch, director of the new coronavirus countermeasures manager in the United States, where Pfizer, which developed the new coronavirus vaccine (COVID-19), said,

“The UK neglected the examination and approved only the data from Pfizer!”

He criticized like that,


…and soon after that …

“There was a misunderstanding. I want to apologize for that.”

He apologized at a tremendous speed … lol


I wonder if “the United States was about to start vaccination”, but “the UK took the world’s first,” so he was angry …?


By the way, the UK emphasized that “no procedure was omitted”, and it seems that the approval examination actually took a method called “sequential examination” and analyzed the information that came out during the clinical trial each time.

(Usually, it seems that the data of clinical trials are collected before analysis)



And in England …

They don’t care about such jealousy at all and move on to the next stage!

“Vaccines must be kept above minus 70 degrees Celsius!”

As you may know, the Japanese media reports such a very disturbing report every day, but the UK is thinking about transporting vaccines,


about that, Pfizer came up with a very handsome answer,

“We have developed a container that can be transported at 70 degrees for 10 days unless it is opened with dry ice”!



We’re in love with Pfizer! 


Vaccines are advancing steadily, and difficulties (such as transportation) have been overcome!



Under such circumstances, when I return my eyes to Japan …………



… 🙁





Please be very careful when you go out!
