The number of newly infected people in Tokyo had been “declining slowly, staying high” last week, but today it has decreased steadily from the same Sunday last week!




It would be great if the “high stay of last week” was just the “effect of holidays” and it would continue to decrease from here …!




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


(Around 15:00 on Feb 21, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



It was quite warm today as well as yesterday, so the city was still a huge amount of people …!

 (Capacity of 4,947 people)


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

*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)

*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!”)









Today’s topic is from this…!

I introduced this summary yesterday, but ↓


(From the summary article on February 20)


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



↑ I was a little wondering about this, “Why did it suddenly increase so much !?”, but I found an article that seems to be the answer!

Apparently, the following are additionally included in the priority inoculation target, and it seems that the total number will be about 1 million …!

・ Medical students (contacting patients in practical training)

・People who frequently come into contact with infected or suspected infected persons in vaccination work
  (* Excluding venue setters and pick-ups)


*By the way, the priority vaccination targets (medical workers) so far are as follows.

・ Doctor / pharmacist / hospital (+ pharmacy) staff
・ Emergency personnel
・ Japan Coast Guard staff
・ Self-Defense Forces



There is also news about vaccination

In the United States, 13.8 million vaccinations have been carried out in the month since December last year, of which 113 people have been reported dead.


According to the US health authorities, “no causal relationship was found.”


It was a Yahoo! article, so thinking “Maybe the comment section is full of troll comments …” , when I looked at the comment section, after all it was full of comments like the one below! (dry laugh)

“Look! Vaccination is dangerous after all!”



Hmmm. .. ..



13.8 million vaccinations means that a maximum of 13.8 million people (if one person has been vaccinated) , or a minimum of 6.9 million people (one person has been vaccinated twice) have been vaccinated.

However, we don’t know if “113 people had died” is natural or not, right …?



Of course, we should look at the symptoms of those who died after vaccination, but at the same time, I feel that we cannot say anything unless we calculate and compare “the number of deaths of 6.9 million to 13.8 million medical workers and the elderly who have not been vaccinated during the same period”



The source seems to be the Yomiuri Shimbun, but it was an incomprehensible article, whether it was aimed at misleading or lacking explanation …! (dry laugh)




Today is Sunday, so there wasn’t much news related to COVID-19 …!



As the number of priority vaccinations increases, the vaccination period for ordinary people like me will be delayed, but in any case, COVID-19 will not end unless the majority of the people (about 70%) are vaccinated, so let’s stay calm and be careful to prevent infection until COVID-19 is completely over!







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) 426,312

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 7,506

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 399,580

= 19,226 people ( -646)  ← 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.




It’s been a really strange weather in Tokyo for the past two days, it’s really warm despite of February..!



<Past weather in Tokyo (this month)>

(*気象ダイアリー – 気象人)



Every year, February in Japan looks like the following.

“The coldest month”

“It didn’t snow in January, but it snow in February!”

However, looking at the temperature this month in ↑ way, it seems that it was much warmer than usual …!



I think that 15 degrees Celsius was… the “standard temperature for changing clothes in spring” in the area where I grew up …!



There is COVID-19, the temperature is strangely high, and an earthquake occurs etc., the climate is really strange in this year…!





It’s getting warmer and we want to go out, but…

Please be very careful when you go out!
