The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has decreased by nearly 1000 compared to the same day (Thursday) last week …!



However, since there were year-end and New Year holidays and three consecutive holidays, I think that the tendency has changed considerably from the normal flow (changes in the number of examinations, changes in totals, changes in human behavior, etc.), so we have to watch a few more days to a week …


That said, as I mentioned yesterday,

as I summarized in the previous (The summary article on December 3 ), if you have a“solid” lockdown or a state of emergency, it should reach its peak during the first week, so I hope it is about to exceed the peak…

(That is the best hope lol)



And the city looks like this. .. .. ↓


(Around 15:00 on January 14th, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



People’s movements are the same as before the state of emergency …



Well, I will summarize

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

*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)

* 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.

 →I am picking up major cities because there are too many infection explosions…


*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday

(* This bar graph is up to the previous day, so today’s red bar (handwritten) is on the far right, but it’s about this …)


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)









The state of emergency was reissued on Jan 7, and I summarized yesterday, but I think I’ll use it for a while (← I am easy to forget various things…lol), so I wrote another article about it!


Quick summary of the reissue of the state of emergency![Tokyo] [New Coronavirus (COVID-19)] [ Updated January 14th]
***  This article is written with the help of Google Translate... *** (*This is a separate article from t...


↑It’s easy to summarize what will happen with the state of emergency and which industries and places will be requested to refrain from doing so!






Major railway companies in the metropolitan area have decided to advance the last train by up to 30 minutes from Wednesday, 20th next week!

They said that they received a request from the government and 1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures, but it means that “The shop is open and the company is operating normally, but the last train will will be early”, right?


Well … perhaps the government wants to say, “You can reduce the number of employees and go home immediately without overtime.”



If you live in an area under the state of emergency, or if you are in the area where will may be included to the state of emergency from now on, please be careful about the last train time …!

Otherwise, you won’t be able to go home on the same day!


I told you like above, but

The change in operating hours on all routes seems to be from Wednesday, January 20th, so it looks like follows!


Operating company Route Last train advance time Remarks
Toei Subway ▽ Asakusa Line ▽ Mita Line ▽ Shinjuku Line ▽ Oedo Line 9-23 minutes  
▽ Nippori-Toneri Liner 8-9 minutes  
Toden Arakawa Line No advance  
JR East ▽ 11 lines
(Yamanote Line, Keihin Tohoku / Negishi Line, Chuo Line, Sobu Line, Tokaido Line, Saikyo / Kawagoe Line, Keiyo Line, Yokosuka Line, Joban Line, Musashino Line)
10 to 30 minutes * Specific time → JR East
Seibu Railway ▽ Seibu Ikebukuro Line, Seibu Yurakucho Line, Seibu Shinjuku Line 10 to 20 minutes (Down only)
Keio Electric Railway ▽ Keio Line, Inokashira Line 10 to 30 minutes  
Odakyu Electric Railway ▽ Odakyu Line Stopping operation after 24:00  
Tokyo metro ▽ All routes 10 to 20 minutes  
Keisei Electric Railway ▽ Keisei Oshiage Line 14 minutes  
Tokyu Corporation All lines except Kodomonokuni 3 to 28 minutes  
Keihin Electric Express Railway ▽ Keikyu Main Line, Kurihama Line, Zushi Line 10 to 30 minutes (Weekdays only)
Sagami Railway ▽Full line 12-18 minutes  




For me, who only uses the last train in an emergency, so last train is my “last hope” to return to my “loved house” (lol), so I’m honestly relieved that the time wasn’t too short … Howeve, on the contrary, I’m a little worried about whether these 10 or 20 minutes are effective…?




Mr. Sakurada, the secretary-general of the Keizai Doyukai, seems to have expressed the recognition that a step-by-step response is unavoidable considering the impact on the economy as described below regarding the state of emergency …!

“If the government makes a collective declaration from the beginning, it will not be convinced by restaurants and businesses that ask for cooperation.”

“We must always be aware of compatibility with the economy.”

“Long-term economic impact should be minimized.”



Rather than step by step, since it’s been so long and the economy is getting worse, so it’s better to make a good compensation and ask the people to “cooperate because we will end COVID-19 in a month”



By the way, Food and beverage industry is …

According to the total of the IT company “Toreta” in Tokyo, which provides reservations and customer management systems to restaurants, the change in the number of customers at restaurants seems to be like follows!


<Comparison of about 2000 stores in 1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures this month and last month>>

▽ 11: 00-15: 00 - 34% decrease

▽ 16: 00-19: 00 - 66% decrease

▽ 20:00-23:00 - 92% decrease

(* Comparison of the number of customers from January 8th (Friday) to 10th (Sunday) and the average number of customers from December Friday to Saturday)


It is easy to think that only about 8% of shops are open after 20:00, but how much the system is used in “restaurants and bar etc, in the entertainment district at night” which are open until night or midnight. Considering whether those are included … It’s an unknown number …



By the way, the rent in Tokyo is …

As you can see on the ↑ site, the average tsubo(3.3㎡) unit price seems to be around 35,000 yen. Of course, it depends on the area…


(* For example, even in Shibuya, it goes up and down so much depending on the location)

(*Rent market price)

(*left side: basement floor in Shibuya Ward / right side : basic price in Shibuya Ward)

(*平均値:average / 最高値:highest)



The leave cooperation fee from Tokyo is 1.8 million yen a month.

In Shibuya … Assuming that the average value is 30,000 yen, the calculation is as follows.


1.8 million (yen) ÷ 30,000 (yen/tsubo) = 60 (tsubo)

= Approximately 200㎡


… Thinking that way, 1.8 million yen = 60 tsubo worth of cooperation money (if it’s just rent) can cover stores of a fairly large size.

It’s difficult because sales seem to be better in the city center than cooperation money, but it seems that there are many restaurants that can obey if it is 60,000 yen a day, 1.8 million yen a month + employment adjustment subsidy.



However, since this is just a “desk theory”, it would be nice if they could get a convincing compensation and stop the spread of the infection in a month …



(* By the way, the leave cooperation fee is for small and medium-sized enterprises and private stores with “100 employees or less, capital 50 million yen or less”, so major chains cannot receive compensation.)




And there was news like this …

In Tokyo, a man in his 80s infected with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) died without finding a medical institution where he could be hospitalized …


This man in his 80s had an underlying illness (diabetes) …


It seems that other women in their 50s also died during home medical treatment, there is already “a situation where you cannot be hospitalized even though you need to be hospitalized” = “medical collapse” …



To be honest, it’s not the the situation which people say, “I haven’t heard about refraining from going out until 20:00!”




Currently, regarding the transportation of suddenly ill patients by ambulance nationwide, there are 2707 cases in a week from January 3 to 10, which is twice as many as in a month, because it was difficult to determine the medical institution to accept. It seems that it was the highest number since April last year …!

(* Cases where transportation is difficult = Cases where inquiries to the hospital took 4 times or more)



What is surprising is that it increased by 88% (= about twice ?!) from the same period last year (before COVID-19)



Considering that it may be difficult to decide which hospital to be transported to when I have a traffic accident … the more I hear it, the more scary it is …




For 11 countries with preferential business traffic (exemption from quarantine, etc.), it has been decided to completely restrict foreigners from entering Japan from January 14th until the cancellation of the state of emergency.

(* It seems that foreigners who have “special circumstances” such as funerals and childbirth of relatives will continue to be allowed to enter the country.)


However, it seems that the following two will continue to be recognized, so I can’t say how effective they are.

・Return of Japanese

・Re-entry of foreigners with a status of residence


And the border measures have been strengthened a little and changed as follows.

・Pledges such as 14 days of isolation at home or accommodation when entering Japan, no use of public transportation for 14 days, storage of location information, etc.

・ In case of violation, name will be announced, status of residence will be canceled, and deportation will be considered.

・In case of violation, it may be kept in the accommodation facility prepared by the quarantine station.


It may be a good way to monitor location information for 14 days only.

(If the system can be operated properly …)




By the way, in relation to “Airport Quarantine”,

The expert meeting, which advises the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare on measures against the new coronavirus, seems to have advised the government as follows.

“For mutants confirmed in the United Kingdom, etc., it is necessary to prevent the spread of infection due to influx into the country.”

“We will continue to monitor and if an infected person is found, a close contact investigation will be required.”


Am I the only one who thinks the mutants are already in the country and are widespread …?



Even though mutants are found every day in “people who have passed through airport quarantine,” it would be strange if they were not spread…



I think we can understand that if the government analyze the PCR test sample thoroughly, but I can’t say anything because there isn’t much information available …!





It seems that two “new” mutants have been found in the United States …!

It means “American species” …!

However, “virus mutation” means that “the more infected people are, the easier it is to mutate”, so even if a mutant is found in Europe, Brazil, the United States, etc. it’s rather natural (in a bad way).



But I want the vaccine to reach the world as soon as possible before a vicious mutation occurs!







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) 311,355

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 4,355

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 234,324

= 72,676 people ( +1,945)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

It used to increase by hundreds a while ago, but now it’s increasing by thousands every day …

The average number of people has increased by about 2000 in the last few days. .. ..




Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization, said at a press conference as follows.


“We recognize that measures such as refraining from going out this time are the same as when the state of emergency was announced in the spring, and are quite strict.”


“We apologize for the inconvenience, but we would like to ask for your cooperation in order to prevent the spread of the infection to an order of magnitude and to protect the lives of the people.”



It looks like a very serious comment, but …

“Oh … Minister Nishimura expects a tremendous number of infected people …”

I became scared like that…

The state of emergency recurrence order should be a measure to reduce the number of infected people from here … but…



I was a little surprised at the similar but completely different consciousness of “preventing to be huge number of infected people” (negative) rather than “reducing the number of infected people” (positive)!






Please be very careful when you go out!
