The number of newly infected people in Tokyo was 572 (the highest number ever) even though it was Wednesday yesterday,

so yesterday I had a bad feeling for the next day,

but after all today’s Thursday it has exceeded 600 people…



As a reference value, the number of inspections on December 7 was 9613, so maybe some people may say, “Hey, it’s because there are a lot of PCR tests,” but…



(*Dec 10, today)

(*総数602 = Total number of infected people / 検査実施件数9613 =the number of PCR tests)



yesterday’s December 9th was …



(*Dec 09, yesterday)

(*総数602 = Total number of infected people / 検査実施件数9613 =the number of PCR tests)



The positive rate will be over 40%, right?



So, it’s hard to consider the number of tests on the day, so it’s not an excuse, and I think everyone’s intuition that the infection is simply spreading is correct …

(If it’s a weekly average, the reliability may increase …)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [602] new infections in Tokyo


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


[272] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 45% of the total) 

[197] people is in their 40s to 50s

  (about 33% of the total)

     *under10 : [5] persons
     *10s : [28] persons
     *20s : [135] persons
     *30s : [137] persons

     *50s : [86] persons
     *60s : [37] persons ←
     *70s : [28] persons ←
     *80s : [28] persons ←

     *over100 : [0] persons


[12] people is

  in 『the entertainment district at night』

  →Employees and guests such as host clubs and cabaret clubs


Infection at home [88] people

Infection at office [34] people

Infection at a dinner with friends and acquaintances [20] people

Infection in the facility [40] people

Infection via other routes [N/A] people


* Infection in the facility [40 people]

= 11 medical institutions 22 people + 8 elderly facilities 10 people


*This is the words of Governor Koike.

 ”For the first time, we have exceeded 600 people. Severely ill people are the biggest point, 59 people today. “


 ”I would like to express my sincere respect to all the medical personnel in the field”


 ”We are cooperating to keep the business hours until 10 pm. Thank you for your cooperation to tighten it again. “




 It seems that there is no particular sense of crisis …

 So it seems that no additional measures can be taken. ..

Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 (Capacity of 2490 people)


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 2490 beds (+150 beds for critically ill patients).

*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!”)








This was the most surprising “article title” today! Lol

(*Chairman Omi  ”Go To (travel) Campaign” should be suspended

 ”My subcommittee  I think so.”  )


“My subcommittee  I think so.” …?

Doesn’t it look like the title of “Professor Omi think that the subcommittee is in his control “? !!

I clicked it unintentionally! Lol


Well that’s fine…

Regarding the content, it is summarized what Mr. Omi, the chairman of the government’s new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) subcommittee said at the Diet committee.


“In order to overcome this infection situation, areas equivalent to stage 3 should refrain from moving and contacting people, including “Go To (travel) Campaign” .”



And in response to the question “Should the campaign be suspended, including in Tokyo?”, he said “My (affiliated) subcommittee thinks so.”


Mr. Omi continues to speak for the people without hesitation!



Anyway, such title of the article …

They have decent content so they don’t have to scam the title …! Lol



…… What? But is it correct in a sense because there is someone like me who was made to click …?




And in the same article, Professor Omi also said as follows.

“The country has not reached the stage of issuing a state of emergency.”

“But there is an awareness of the problem that it is at a very important time.”


Certainly, there are quite a few areas where infections have not yet occurred, and it may be difficult for the country as a whole …



Personally, I would like governmet to declare an emergency even more. ..



By the way, in the article that covered the same committee …

He also seems to have said:

“I have repeatedly said that it is better to cancel the campaign in the current infection situation.”

“I think it would be better to get the public’s understanding by reducing the number of infected people as soon as possible and going to stage 2 before conducting the campaign.”



However, about that … Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato (= government’s idea) said, “There are no stage 3 prefectures at this time!”, And it seems that he is not willing to stop the campaign …



There is also an article in “How many people does Japanese government think the number of domestically infected people is OK?”, which I always post at the bottom every day, but it seems that the number they’re assuming is too large…


こんにちは! 突然ですが、みなさん遊びに行きたくないですか?! 私は行きたいです。(笑) ただ…、セルフ自粛してばっかりですけど。(笑) このブログは 右側のプロフィール欄なんかにも...



However, the remarks made by Professor Omi and the government are directly linked to the measures against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) for us, so I will pay attention to them!



If I could say only one thing to Mr. Omi … not stage 2 …

I want you to do the campaign after properly ending COVID-19 at stage 1 or lower …!



… Yeah, the content of the first topic has become longer today too …

From here, I will briefly introduce the articles that interest you!


Mr. Omi, chairman of the government’s new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease control subcommittee, seems to have told the government of the plight of the scene, saying, “People are no longer in a situation where they can chase the cluster.”

It seems that the number of infected people has exceeded the processing capacity of the health center and it is not possible to find the source of infection in the cluster.

It seems that it was a statement on NHK’s Sunday debate program, but it seems that the minister in charge of economic revitalization Nishimura, who also joined in this program, also had a stiff face …


It seems that a cluster of 13 people has occurred at a medical institution (Osaka General Medical Center) where the site of the “Osaka COVID-19 Severe Medical Center”, which is scheduled to start operation from the 15th, is now a hot topic …


. .. .. I can’t say anything. .. ..


In Germany, the number of infected people is around 20,000 a day, and it seems that the number of deaths per day is 590, which is the highest

Lockdown regulations are a bit looser in Germany than in other European countries (small meetings are OK, etc.), but even though they have been locking down since November 2nd,

compared to other European countries, there is no sign of going down …

(*worldometer – Germany)


Japanese measures for COVID-19 is even looser such as “request for self-restraint” more than Germany, so the results of European measures are quite anxious in the sense that “measures and their results” will be useful…


Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has always been talked about as calm, has also made the most emotional speech to alert the public …



The EU (= European Union) seems to have been hit by a cyber attack again!

Someone has illegally accessed the materials related to the vaccine.


Which country … Oops(lol),

I don’t know who, but there are organizations that still want vaccine information …


By the way, regarding vaccines …

It seems that Canada has also approved Pfizer’s vaccine, and it is the third country in the world after England and Bahrain!


And Russia and China also have great “vaccine development and approval” appeal, but it seems that there is still no application for approval to the EU (= European Union) …

I wish they had a thorough examination to confirm their effectiveness and safety …




Finally, I would like to introduce the data!

Today is about vaccines!

The following is the result of the process of reviewing the “emergency use application” of Pfizer’s vaccine by the US health authorities.


・95% effectiveness is the same for all age groups

 (* Premise of proper vaccination twice)

・About side effects (all mild to moderate)

   Inoculated skin pain-84.1%



   Muscle pain-38.3%


   Joint pain-23.6%


・Conclusion: “There were no safety concerns that would prevent the application from being approved.”


Regarding side effects, the above are all things that I often feel even with influenza vaccination, so I have the image that “vaccination is such a thing” rather than side effects…

However, everyone is worried about side effects, right?



And there is such information,

Perhaps those who have read this “Summary Article” already know this topic,

but with Pfizer’s new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination that started in the UK, it seems that 2 persons had a severe allergic reaction such as “anaphylaxis” (it’s famous for allergic reactions from bees).

By the way, although it says “severe”, it seems that the two have already recovered.



What ?! Vaccination is dangerous after all …?



You think that way …? But in reality …

the two had had a strong allergic reaction in the past and also had injections to control their sudden symptoms.



I’m glad that nothing happened …


People with chronic illnesses, including allergies, need to be careful about vaccination…



In Japan (unfortunately) vaccination is likely to be a little later, but I would like to collect this kind of information now!







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) 173,128

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2526

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 143,665

= 26,937 people ( +560)  ← 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 discharges is increasing day by day to over 2,300, but the number of newly infected people is too large, and as a result, it is increasing by about 500. ..




There was such news today!

“SmartAmp Station”, which allows you to receive PCR tests from 1980 yen in front of Tokyo Station, will open on December 10th!

The result will be available the next day!

(* On the day if you pay an additional fee)


It seems that the Yomiuri Giants of professional baseball are already using it!


But … before that, I want the government to decide on the rules for reporting the test results to the health center and what to do with the medical institution if the number of positives increases too much …

(* Currently, there is no rule to report to the health center even if a positive result is obtained at a private PCR testing facility …)



But I’m really happy that such facilities have increased!





Please be very careful when you go out!
