I was afraid that the number of newly infected people in Tokyo would be updated to the highest ever on Saturday, but I managed to avoid updating the highest number ever!



I would like to be happy to see only↑ , but still over 700 people…



And since today is Saturday, I also calculated the total number of infected people in a week!


The result is … 4145 people …




I was wondering if the spread of the infection could be stopped in the “important three weeks” that the government positioned, but looking at the numbers for one week, it is accelerating as much as possible …!

It seems like it’s going to dive on a cliff after stepping on the accelerator too much …



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [736] new infections in Tokyo


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


[343] people is in their 20s to 30s

  (about 47% of the total) 

[208] people is in their 40s to 50s

People discharged from hospital or

Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = 736 - 48 - 5

 = +683 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)

 (Capacity of 2490 people)


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

▽ Miyazaki Prefecture 657 people (11)

* 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!”)








Today I will introduce the small news first!


Each prefecture has been requesting shortening of business hours for the past few days, but Hitachi City, Ibaraki Prefecture has decided to cancel the coming-of-age ceremony in January next month …

The end of COVID-19 wasn’t in time …


I wish they could change it to summer with “postponement” …


Furisode dealers and photo shops seem to be confused by “what should I do with the cancellation fee?”


It seems that requests to shorten business hours will begin in Aichi and Gifu as well!

Gifu Prefecture is also in 32 municipalities from the night of the 18th until 9 pm

Aichi prefecture is from the night of the 18th to 9 pm throughout the prefecture

Both prefectures seem to have a maximum cooperation fee of 1 million yen from December 18th to January 11th (25 days).


If so many more came out, it would have been better for the Japanese government to solicit desired areas at once and announce them all at once. .. ??


Somehow, the movement of WHO (= World Health Organization) suddenly became active here!


①The schedule for dispatching the infection source investigation team to China will be decided more and more concretely.

  →Next month, the first week of January

②WHO will secure 2 billion vaccines and plan to start distribution by March next year.


Hmmm, the content of the work is also good!

In the July survey, it seems that the Chinese government was not cooperative and could not conduct a field survey, so I hope they will do it this time!


And the vaccine … maybe faster than Japan …?


About everything, Japan’s speed is too late…


It is said that 13% of the people who became seriously ill with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) became “thrombosis” in which blood clots clog blood vessels.

Survey of 6000 inpatients with the new coronavirus (COVID-19)

 → 378 are severely ill → 50 are thrombotic

 (378 people=1.85% in total including mild and moderate cases)


Doesn’t it just cause serious damage to the lungs …

After all, this virus is too scary …


Following Hokkaido, the Hiroshima Medical Association also said, “The medical system is beginning to collapse.”

“It’s starting to collapse in just two weeks,”

I’m really surprised every day, but in this third wave, the infection spread all at once …



And I introduced this yesterday, but ↓


(* And here is the domestic vaccine information as of December 18th!)




①Medical staff - ①10,000 people in late February

          ②Remaining 3 million people during March

②Elderly peopl - late March

③Others    - after April

          (* Priority is given to people with underlying illness)


(Explanatory meeting for local governments in January next month)

(* By the way, inoculation method … ① Coupon arrives at home ② Go to designated medical institution ③ Inoculation)


Well, after all Japan is slow. ..



“Why does it take so long?”

“The United States and the United Kingdom started vaccination in an instant from the application?”

(In the US, it was only 3 days (!) From application to approval)




Pfizer says, “There were many Asians participating in clinical trials around the world, and there were no differences in effects or side effects depending on race.”


Perhaps the clinical trial of this Pfizer vaccine in Japan was conducted by only 160 people, so I wonder if there is a small number …?


By the way, it seems that the examination method this time will be a fairly early method called “special approval” that was also done when applying for approval of the new coronavirus drug “remdesivir” in May.



Will it take until February even if such an early method is taken? .. The average person is April. ..



It seems that Remdesivir passed the application in Japan in May in 3 days, and the data used for this application is not “data in Japan” but “data from overseas clinical trials”, so…

I wonder if the application for Pfizer’s vaccine will pass in 3 days! Lol







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) 197,464

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 2892

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 163,967

= 30,605 people ( +434)  ← 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 as high as 2,500 or more, but the number of newly infected people is larger than that, and the number of people receiving medical treatment continues to increase.




Tokyo seems to be in a difficult situation …!

都内の感染者急増、「市中感染で年代や地域に偏りなくなった」 – 読売新聞

According to the person in charge of the city, the number of infected people seems to be increasing rapidly because “the infection in the city has spread and the tendency of the age group and the area of ​​residence has disappeared”

As mentioned in the article,

Infection spreads in the city = The infection route can no longer be tracked

It is the worst situation, so the only way to stop spread may be to “stop the movement of people”.


By the way, according to the subcommittee of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the most conspicuous scene of infection are…

・Year-end party and party

・Eating and drinking related restaurants such as restaurants with entertainment


Is it because of “Go To Eat”…?



That’s why all politicians are particular about requesting shorter business hours!



It didn’t get any results in the “important 3 weeks” that the government positioned!



… I’m no longer in a situation where I can make jokes, but

from a familiar place, we have no choice but to protect ourselves and those around us …!

If that circle spreads …?!




Please be very careful when you go out!
