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


(Around 15:00 on Feb 20, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



After all it was a tremendous amount of people today …!

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 103,970 ( +303)

 *( )= 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)

 = 327 - 303  - 27

 = -3 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)

 = 109,462 - 103,970 - 1,248

 = 4,244 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).

(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)





And also today, I will summarize some prefectures that have a high number of infected people, not just in the Tokyo area.

*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!”)










Also Today, let’s start with the topic of domestic vaccination …!



The table below shows the inoculation status up to yesterday! ↓


<Domestic new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status>


Information date facilities Total number of vaccinations (1st) Allergic reactio
As of 2/19 17:00 68 5039 None
As of 2/18 17:00 16 611 None
As of 2/17 17:00 8 125 None


(*The information of Feb 19 is from → 新型コロナ 19日は医療従事者4428人がワクチン接種 – NHK )



It increased all at once!






It seems that there was one report of suspected side reaction today.


Location: Toyama Rosai Hospital in Toyama Prefecture
Symptoms: Urticaria


* According to Professor Tetsuo Nakayama of Kitasato University, who is familiar with vaccines, it is as follows.

“Urticaria is a mild side reaction seen in all vaccinations such as influenza, so don’t worry.”

(コロナワクチン 国内初の副反応の疑い 富山県でじんましん発生 – NHK)




And as for the future schedule, it seems that the number of people targeted for priority inoculation will increase significantly …!

Specifically, it looks like this … ↓


<Vaccination schedule>


Tomorrow =
Pre-inoculation started for about 40,000 people (first time)

Next week =
Second flight of vaccine arrives in Japan

March 10 =
Advance vaccination (second time)

Mid-March =
Inoculated to 3.7 million medical workers in Japan
 →4.7 million (1 million added)

After April =
① Start vaccination for 36 million elderly people aged 65 and over
② 8.2 million people with underlying illness
③ Elderly facility staff
④ Other people



In addition, clinical trials to confirm the efficacy and safety of vaccination of pregnant women with Pfizer’s vaccine have begun all over the world!

By the way

・ Inoculation to pregnant women is OK in Israel

・ Although not recommended in the UK, vaccination is OK after consulting a doctor.

It seems that pregnant women have already been vaccinated like above!



By the way, AstraZeneca’s vaccine is …

as soon as the vaccine is approved in Japan, most of the vaccines will be manufactured in Japan!


Of the vaccine contracts for 60 million people, 40 million people will be produced at domestic factories!
(Factory of “JCR Pharmaceuticals” in Hyogo Prefecture)



By the way, there was also such information! ↓


<Vaccine manufacturing method>

①Culture the solution that is the source of the vaccine in a dedicated room

②When it reaches a certain amount, transfer it to a tank with a height of 3 m called “bioreactor”.

③Warm or stir the solution to complete the vaccine



Currently, Pfizer’s vaccine is scheduled to be imported from Europe every time, and it seems that it is necessary to obtain permission each time when it is exported from Europe to Japan, so it is the best that it can be manufactured domestically like AstraZeneca’s vaccine because it seems to be able to inoculate quickly!



And the topic has changed to the topic of lifting the state of emergency!

The infection situation in 10 areas during the state of emergency seems to be like this …

(*1=Number of infected people per 100,000 people per week)
(Some of the article data has been converted to English.)



Osaka seems to be asking the government to lift the state of emergency by the end of this month!



10 days left until the end of this month …

It would be nice if there were measures and grounds that could bring the infection to an end even after the state of emergency was lifted, but I’m a little worried because it feels like “The number of infected people has decreased, so we’ll cancel the state of emergency!”



I hope it doesn’t mean that the infection has spread again after the release …





The current domestic infection status of mutants! ↓


<Infection confirmation status of domestic mutant strains>
(* February 1st-February 18th)


Let’s all be careful about preventive measures so that we will not be infected with the normal new coronavirus or mutants!







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) 425,280

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 7,456

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 397,952

= 19,872 people ( -647)  ← 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.




The “Go To (Travel) Campaign” business seems to want to give a little more money to the travel industry …!

It seems that the government think that “there is a considerable amount of administrative expenses due to the cancellation of the campaign, so we will cover that with the operating expenses of the business.”


Actually, it seems that an additional 10% of the cancellation fee will be added to support the distribution to the industry called compensation. ..

(The name is “Responding to inquiries from users”, “Transfer fee for cancellation fee”, etc …)



Actually speaking internally, the situation is as follows, so it is the situation of “What will you compensate for any more?”

It’s been more than a month since the nationwide campaign was suspended, but no more cancellation fees are incurred.

The only exchange between the travel agency and the accommodation is internal online [reservation / cancellation] information exchange.

Even if it says labor cost, it is covered to some extent by “sustainable benefit”

In the first place, there are few inquiries because of this COVID-19 infection status.

(Currently, domestic travelers (who cannot speak English) are also increasing the number of reservations made via overseas travel sites via Trivago, etc. = non-refundable reservations, but in reality, when unavoidable natural disasters such as typhoons and the new coronavirus (COVID-19) occur, of course, free cancellation is available in case of those.)



However, fixed costs (rent, etc.) are incurred and there are few overseas tourists, so it may be necessary to provide support to prevent the industry from going bankrupt.

And the difficulty is the same in other industries ..



But it was an article that I couldn’t understand …! (dry laugh)



In any case, there is no problem if COVID-19 is over!

Only a little more to resolve!






Please be very careful when you go out!
