The number of newly infected people in Tokyo in this week has been changing at the same number as the week just before the “Huge spread of infection during the year-end and New Year holidays”.







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


(Around 15:00 on Feb 04, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Also today, it’s too many people !



Well, I will summarize

Number of seriously ill :  115 ( -10)

Hotel medical treatment : 576 ( -31)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 92,110 ( +1,447)

 *( )= increase  from the day before


Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of people who completed medical treatment)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 734 - 1,447 - 25

 = -738 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)

 = 102,200 - 92,110 - 974

 = 9,116 people


*Tokyo currently has 12 facilities for infected people
 (Capacity of 4,947 people)


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 3280 beds (+220 beds for critically ill patients).
 → Aim to secure 3750 beds (+250 beds for critically ill patients).

* In addition, we will open two specialized hospitals from September to October, and plan to add another 200 beds.

(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!




A new clinical trial will be launched in the UK!

The new coronavirus (COVID-19) is vaccinated twice per person for any vaccine, but clinical trials will be conducted from the middle of this month to see if the first and second vaccines can be used with different types of vaccines!


It seems that it will take until summer …


If various combinations are okay, you will be able to vaccinate more smoothly and speedily without worrying about the type!



In terms of vaccines

The results of the final stages of clinical trials, such as the effectiveness of the vaccine developed in Russia, have finally been published in the British medical journal The Lancet!

(This seems to be an authoritative magazine, as the results of Pfizer and AstraZeneca were also published in this medical journal.)


Effectiveness is 91.6%!


It was more effective than I expected! (← Excuse me lol)

Even though clinical trials have not been completed, this Russian vaccine was approved in Russia and in other countries, so I was in a state of “Is that okay …?” … (dry laugh)



By the way, I laughed at the comment from this medical journal The Lancet.


“The development of this vaccine has been unsightly hasty and has been criticized for its lack of transparency, but the results are clear.”



As expected, Britain is very good at irony! Lol




And the topic returned to Japan, and finally it became an article again!

The accommodation facilities for COVID-19 recuperators are almost empty


<Usage rate (occupancy rate) of accommodation facilities>
Ibaraki - 34.9% (prefecture with the highest usage rate)
Tokyo   - 28.0%
(As of January 27)



The reason is, “They have to wait for all the rooms on that floor to become empty when cleaning and disinfecting.”



Sure, the government shouldn’t infect the cleaners, but anyway …

they must think a little more …

It’s been more than half a year since I started using accommodation facilities …



In Tokyo, the government has about 5,000 rooms, but only about 600 people are using it …

Moreover, there are about 3,500 home recuperators …

(As of February 3)



It’s a waste of money, and it doesn’t make much sense if there are 3,500 home recuperators and only 600 are used for accommodation recuperation …?




And finally,

Finally, the “Revised Proposal for Special Measures for New Coronavirus Measures” has been enacted!


I hope this will bring the infection to an end!


Let’s briefly summarize the important points!


<Revision of Special Measures Law for New Coronavirus Measures>


・Promulgated on February 3rd, enforced on February 13th



 (During the state of emergency and during the “priority measures such as prevention of spread” in the previous stage)

 ①The prefectural governor can make a “request”

 ② If the company / individual does not respond to the “request” for no reason, it can be “ordered”.


 (Company, restaurants etc)

 ③On-site inspection etc. will be possible

 ④Administrative penalties → fines if you do not even comply with the “order”



(*Fine of 200,000-300,000 yen) 




 ⑤ If the infected person refuses medical treatment, the governor can recommend hospitalization.

 ⑥Refuse even hospitalization recommendation ・ If you escape from the hospital → Fine

 ⑦Lie and refuse the investigation of the health center → Fine



(*Rejection of hospitalization → Fine of 500,000 yen)
(*Refusal of investigation by health center → Fine of 300,000 yen)




 ⑧Even if the test result is negative in the quarantine at the airport, you need to wait at home for 14 days.

 ⑨If you refuse to quarantine at home, make it wait at the facility

 ⑩If you refuse to quarantine for the facility → Criminal punishment

   (With a criminal record)

(*Imprisonment for up to 1 year or a fine of up to 1 million yen)


(【詳細】コロナ対策の改正特別措置法など成立 その内容とは? – NHK)



If I read it carefully, there are many points to be worried about, as shown below.

・What are the measures such as fines for not reducing the number of people in the city?

・Isn’t the criminal punishment NG? Is it OK for only immigrants? Then, isn’t it okay for Japanese people to be criminal penalties?

(The criminal punishment was NG because the discussion in the Diet said that the criminal punishment was too heavy.)



I hope that this speedy revision will have some effect!







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) 400,001

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 6,189

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 349,991

= 43,821 people ( -2,726)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

In Japan, the infection suddenly spread during the year-end and New Year holidays, but as those infected people approached the time of discharge, the total number of people who completed medical treatment began to decrease.




By the way, it seems that the contact confirmation app “COCOA” has not worked on Android since September (dry laugh).
(* 30% of COCOA users are Android)
(“COCOA” is a government app)

It was said that no detection or notification was given even after close contact with the infected person.


It seems that they didn’t notice until a series of complaints from users …!




The WHO (World Health Organization) research team, who is visiting China to find the source of the new coronavirus (COVID-19), exchanged opinions with researchers at the “Wuhan Institute of Vase”!


WHO “It was a very important meeting” …



…I wonder if the information will come out sooner?!





Please be very careful when you go out!
