* 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!”)








This was the first thing I noticed today!

In France, where restrictions on going out continue due to the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, French government were gradually trying to ease the business, such as reopening stores, but recently the number of infected people has not decreased well, so according to the French government’s announcement, it is quite difficult to relax the restrictions on going out scheduled for mid-December …






Speaking of France, I summarized the graph of the number of newly infected people in France in the summary article the other day, but ↓


(From the summary article on December 3rd)


◆ 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 December 02 * 34 days have passed since the lockdown

After all, France has been increasing for the first week and is gradually decreasing from there!


↑The infection should have decreased with such a considerable momentum …

I thought, “Is France spreading again since then ?!”, so I checked the latest graph of the number of newly infected people!


(*worldometer > france)


What … it’s still low. .. It was good!


However, if you take a closer look, it seems that the decrease has stopped for the last week or so …!


By the way, in the bar graph above, it looks like that the number of infected people has been low for the past week, but in reality, there are still about 10,000 infected people. ..


(*worldometer > france)


Originally, the peak of the mountain in the graph was about 50,000 to 80,000, so we have the impression that it has decreased considerably, but the French government is still alert (although the number of people is large). Hmm!



Compared to that, Japan. .. .. (Mumble

Even though the number of infected people is not decreasing. .. .. (Mumble



…… Oops, the voice of my heart leaked! lol




And next here!

According to research teams such as the University of Tokyo, comparing “Go To (Travel) Campaign” users and non-users, it was said that the number of those who have experienced the symptoms of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and complained of dysgeusia, were twice as may statistically compared to non-user.


Looking at the reactions of Internet users, it seems that everyone in this article was worried that “See, the number of infected people is increasing because of the campaign!”,

but to be honest, I felt that “this is not an article that the number of infections increased in the campaign, but just article that many campaign users felt symptoms…”


And since the research is “statistically”, it is unclear “what data is being collected on the premise”, so I can’t say anything … but


in the first place, “infection using a campaign” has a strong image of

(1) people who have symptoms during travel and go to the hospital, and

(2) outbreaks that occur during group trips and are counted,

so I think, “That’s why they go to the hospital because they have symptoms, so it’s natural that the number of symptom holders doubles compared to the overall status of infected people (including many asymptomatic) …”

Then what is the meaning of this research …



What? My thinking?

Of course, while saying that, I think the “Go To (Travel) Campaign” is one of the factors behind the spread of the infection…!

Because I think that the number of people infected using the “Go To (Travel) Campaign” is actually much higher than that announced (just because the person don’t not understand by themselves of it and is not counted by the campaign users) …




In this way … I always start by thinking “Let’s introduce it quickly and easily!”, But the introduction of the first article will be quite long as shown in ↑ …

So, I will summarize from next articles that I was interested in “as easy as possible!”! lol


(As you all know)

The Toyosu market in Tokyo has been infected by a total of 160 people since August, but the Tokyo Metropolitan Government continues to announce that it is not a cluster.


Regarding this case,

we can only think that “there are too many infections, isn’t it a cluster ?!”,

but “cluster (outbreak)” seems to be “transmitting viruses within the same group” in the first place,

like Toyosu Market, it is said that “the infection of 5 or more people has never been confirmed at one time, and it takes more than 2 weeks until the next infection is confirmed” is not a “mass infection” …


But … rather … I’m more worried about the image that “everyone in the market is dangerous”

“Outbreak” = It is safer to know the infection route …



Well, the text is still long! Let’s make it easier!



At the “Hokkaido Medical Center,” where clusters occurred in Hokkaido, a survey result was found that “a patient who was negative on admission was actually infected, and clusters were generated from there.”


The same was true for nosocomial infections in hospitals that had occurred in the past in Kanagawa, and
also Infections may be confirmed a few days after a negative airport quarantine, 

it is a difficult problem that PCR and antigen tests are not highly accurate…



And in Taiwan,

A Filipino worker who was in the quarantine period for the new coronavirus (COVID-19) went out of the room without permission for “only 8 seconds” and was fined 360,000 yen!

In Taiwan, it seems that 14 days of isolation is still required for entry and return from overseas, and it seems that there have been 19 fines for going out without permission in Kaohsiung City alone.


Really, I’m too envious of Taiwan’s solid measures! (Crying)




That’s all the articles I would like to introduce today!

Thank you for always reading!

Let’s share the information as much as possible and get rid of this new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) as soon as possible!







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) 167,347

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2458

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 139,653

= 25,236 people ( +35)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

Due to the large number of discharges (more than 2000), the number of people undergoing treatment nationwide has decreased today!

→ After that, the number of newly infected people increased significantly, and the day ended with an increase. .. .. (-74 people → +35 people)




Today, I would like to introduce “What I laughed while looking for articles related to the new coronavirus (COVID-19)” for the first time in a while !



Recently, “package fraud” such as sandwiches and food has become a hot topic, but the word “Seven-Eleven Respect” made me laugh unintentionally! lol

I’m surprised at your naming sense every time … lol





Not only in Japan but also overseas, some companies are doing similar things and I laughed at the pictures, so I will introduce it! lol

As long as I look at it, I can laugh a lot, but if I actually buy this product, I will get angry! Lol
