The number of new infections in Tokyo remained lower in the second half of last week than in the previous week, but if you look only on Sunday, it will continue to increase



Meanwhile… How about the amount of people in the city in Tokyo…


(Around 15:00 on January 17th, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Rather, it is increasing even more!?



Well, I will summarize

 (Capacity of 2490 people)


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 3280 beds (+220 beds for critically ill patients).

* 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!




Today, there was a summary article of “cluster information” in Tokyo!

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government does not tell us about “cluster information” in a timely manner, such as the announcement of the day, so it is a place of concern …!


<The number of outbreaks of new coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tokyo>


641 cases from February 2020 to December 2020

Company - 174 cases (27%)

Medical institution - 94 cases (15%)

Facilities for the elderly - 90 cases (14%)

Restaurant - 85 cases (13%)


・Of these, in “company”, “dining outside the workplace is a factor of expansion”


・Infection spread rapidly because it is difficult for patients to wear masks at psychiatric hospitals.


641 cases in 11 months means that there are about 58 outbreaks in a month…!

(though I think there are months with many outbreaks and months with few outbreaks) 

58 cases a month … about 2 cases a day

After all there are many…

Even so, I want Tokyo to provide more outbreak information on the same day …



If you don’t tell us, we can’t prevent it …




And in Kanagawa,

For a man in his 70s (infected person) living alone, it took two days to be contacted by the “Atsugi Health and Welfare Office Yamato Center” related to the health center where the medical institution reported the infected person information.

And when they called, the man didn’t answer and later confirmation he was dead ……



In Kanagawa, there was a case where a medical treatment person died because they could not contact at the accommodation facility, and there are many things like this …

(Though I understand the surge in the number of infected people in Kanagawa …)


(Time series)

January 11: Medical institution reports infection to health center

January 13: Contact from the public health center (without answering the phone)

January 15: When I visited the police, the man had already died.



Currently, in Kanagawa Prefecture, the center operations are tight due to the spread of infection, and as of January 16, there are about 200 cases in which interviews have not been conducted while receiving notifications from medical institutions after January 10…



I know that the work is difficult, but since there is only a health center that manages it now, I would like them to do something about measures such as replenishing personnel etc…!




And there was a data article also today!

NHK’s opinion poll from November 4th to December 7th, but most of the content is as usual, such as “Do you feel stress” and “Did your life change?”

So, I will introduce what I was interested in!


By the way, the target of this questionnaire is as follows

・Survey by mail method

・Mailed to 3,600 people over the age of 18 nationwide

・2331(64.8%) respondents


Therefore, please read about the group of respondents while considering the following!

“Young people may be easy to go through even if they are mailed like this.”

“People who have a stable income are more likely to answer.”



◆About income

Reduced - 30%

No change - 65%

Increased - 2%


(Pie chart about income ↓)

(Most of the people have the same income, but one in four has decreased … Even though it was a questionnaire when they were returning to their daily lives in November …)




◆About working hours

Decreased - 26%

No change - 62%

Increased - 11%


(Pie chart about working hours ↓)



◆About restrictions on freedom

Q.”Is it permissible to restrict individual freedom such as restrictions on the movement of people and economic activities to prevent infectious diseases?”

Allowed - 22%

If anything allowed - 65%

If anything, it is not allowed - 10%

Not allowed -  2%

→ Result: “Allowed”     = 87%

        “Not allowed” = 12%


(Pie chart about freedom restrictions ↓)


* By the way, when I asked how much 87% of the “permitted” side was allowed …


・Restrictions on going out - 87%

・Request for leave - 82%

・Understanding behavior based on mobile phone location information - 52%




◆About revision to law with enforcement

Necessary - 42%

Unnecessary - 19%

I can’t say either - 38%


(Pie chart about revision to law with enforcement force ↓)


* By the way, the percentage of people in each age group who answered “necessary” is …

18-29 years old - 33%
30s - 36%
40s - 39%
50s - 43%
60s - 44%
70 years old and over - 48%

As we age, we are in a world where “individual freedom” is more respected than “public welfare” …!

Good or bad …


Well … If you look at “the number of people in the city that does not decrease even with the state of emergency”, it is clear that “individual freedom” is prioritized …



* Public welfare …

 Roughly speaking, in the Constitution of Japan, “individual freedom” is allowed within the scope of “public welfare = not causing trouble to people”!




Today, I would like to introduce a lot of content, but it’s getting longer, so only one more …!

The Diet will finally start tomorrow, and amendments to the infectious disease law (penalties for refusal to refrain from self-restraint, etc.) will be discussed!


Roughly summarizing the important points …


①When the infected person violates the hospitalization recommendation

“Prisonment of up to 1 year or a fine of up to 1 million yen”

 (* Because there are many infected people who refuse accommodation and home medical treatment)


②If you refuse to investigate the health center or declare a lie

 ”Fine of 500,000 yen or less”

 (* Because the infection will spread if you do not answer properly)


③Contractors who do not comply with the request for shortening business hours

 ”Don’t obey under the state of emergency → fine 500,000 yen”

 ”Don’t obey before the state of emergency → fine 300,000 yen”


↑ will be discussed!



“If this revision is made, if an infectious disease occurs again in the future, we will act in accordance with this law.”

“You should ask, no penalties.”

There are such opinions, but I feel that the contents of ①~③ are rather natural, and there seems to be no problem if the shop or something can be compensated firmly from government, right?!




Is it only me who wants to end this “new coronavirus (COVID-19) infectious disease” to enjoy life to the fullest with personal freedom? !! 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) 331,256

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 4,538

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 249,147

= 76,376 people ( +1,195)  ← 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 …




It seems that the vaccine from Pfizer Inc. in the United States is delayed in shipping …!

“They will slow down the shipping pace for 3-4 weeks” …


What !? What happened ?? Something trouble … ???

When I thought so, I found the following information!

“Because of the work to increase manufacturing capacity at major factories in Belgium”

“Shipments from late February to March will increase significantly.”


I was relieved! lol



And it seems that the promised delivery will arrive in Europe etc. on schedule without delay!



Still, it seems that “EU countries wanting additional supply” are dissatisfied …



About us, we haven’t even got the vaccine in Japan yet! lol



Will it be approved in Japan in about a month?

I can’t wait!






Please be very careful when you go out!
