If you look only at Sunday on the calendar, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo is probably still on the rise …



Last Sunday was “less than the previous week” so I expected it to “decreasing trend” a bit …



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [408] new infections in Tokyo


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

 = +222 people


Estimated total number of infected people in Tokyo as of today

 = (Number of positives)

*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).

*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 news came in at midnight yesterday!

The suspension of the “Go To (travel) Campaign” will reach the deadline of December 15th in Sapporo and Osaka, but as you all know, the infection situation will not improve at all, so the government seems to extend the period.


Moreover, the government is finally coordinating with them in the direction of suspending Tokyo and Nagoya!


It seems that the countermeasures headquarters will decide tomorrow 14th, but I hope this will calm the infection!



By the way, the deadline is December 25th.

It hits Christmas directly!

The lockdown overseas was “lockdown early for Christmas”, but is it a difference in religion or a sense of crisis …



And overseas, yesterday, December 12th (local 11th),  Pfizer’s vaccine was approved for emergency use in the United States!

Maybe the supply will start within 24 hours of approval?!

It was said that, but it seems that delivery preparations are already underway and vaccination will start tomorrow 14th!



Moderna’s vaccine is expected to be approved on the 17th next week, and 40 million vaccines will be supplied in the United States this month …!



Good-good-America! I’m too envious! lol



I never thought that vaccines would progress so quickly in early November last month!




Meanwhile, in Japan …

It seems that there are many year-end party clusters in Fukushima …

Besides, 3 cases





Areas with few infections can spread to nearly 100 people at once due to this kind of relaxation, so we mustn’t let our guard down…




And here I told you yesterday ↓


(From the summary article on December 12th)


in Kanagawa, a man in his 50s died at a new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease accommodation facility …

I’m waiting for details, but there was no response to the LINE health observation at 15:00, and when the person in charge visited the room before 20:00, he was lying on the bed …

His infection was confirmed on December 8th and arrived at the hotel on December 9th …

(* The diagnosis was “(1) no chronic disease (2) fever / joint pain only”)



“Medical collapse” is a little getting scary …




Really, let’s be careful until the vaccine arrives and the end of COVID-19 is visible …!



A man who died at an accommodation facility in Kanagawa seems to said, “I have abdominal pain and headache” at 10:00 am, shortly before the health observation on LINE (15:00 on December 11).

<新型コロナ>軽症で療養施設入所の感染者が死亡 神奈川県が検証へ


I got more details about ↑ …

The cause of death was “acute bronchopneumonia caused by the new coronavirus (COVID-19)“.


The man had low blood oxygen levels and needed a doctor’s diagnosis, but he said he wasn’t suffocating, so he was treated as a follow-up. (Without medical examination)


I think that the people in the medical field who manage the accommodation treatment facility for COVID-19 are also difficult (some people get out of it without permission), but

It’s anxious for patients, “lonely medical treatment at accommodation facilities that are not hospitals,” so I would like them to follow up closely …







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) 181,342

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2614

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 149,945

= 28,783 people ( +612)  ← 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 small number of discharges on Sunday, the number of people increased by more than 500 today.

(Although about 1800 people have been discharged from the hospital …)




The mortality rate of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) is 1.4 times higher in men than in women!

It seems that international research teams such as Cape Town University in South Africa announced it, but it seems that it is almost common in each country.


I often hear that women have a longer life expectancy than men, and I’m convinced!




And there was such news!

It’s a story about Italy, which is still under curfew due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) …


It seems that a man who had an argument with his wife broke the curfew and walked outside to “calm down” …!


Forgive him soon! lol



I thought that way … but …

He was walking 450km for a week!!!!?

A week later, when the police found him at 2:00 am, he was fined up to 50,000 yen for breaking the curfew …



It’s a surprise,right? lol



Moreover, a stranger gave me food and drinks along the way!

It’s humanity…


That’s a good story. .. ..



Is it a good story?! lol





Please be very careful when you go out!
