The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has decreased by about 100 every day this week from the previous week …!



(* 20-30% less than the previous week)



However, from yesterday’s strange decrease, it seems that it has not decreased so much today. ..





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


(Around 15:00 on Feb 23, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



The weather was nice on holidays and it wasn’t so cold, so there were a lot of people in the city …!

Number of hospitalized :  1,963 ( -28)

Number of seriously ill :  77 ( +1)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 105,127 ( +314)

 *( )= 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)

 = 275 - 314 - 11

 = -50 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)

 = 110,187 - 105,127 - 1,285

 = 3,775 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)

*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!”)









Since a mutant of the new coronavirus was found yesterday, from the domestic infection distribution situation …


The current domestic infection status of mutants! ↓


<Infection confirmation status of domestic mutant strains>
(* February 1st-February 22th)




It seems that it was found in Osaka for the first time in February.

Except for Kagoshima, if I make a picture it is easy to understand that it spreads in the center of Kansai and Kanto … 

“Just knowing” …




Next is the topic of domestic vaccination!


First of all, it will not be reported every day, so I update it as soon as I understand it, but it is the vaccination situation in Japan! ↓

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


Information date facilities Total number of vaccinations (1st) Allergic reactio
As of 2/22 Evening 95 11,934 *1
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

(* Side reactions (2 people) are hives, etc. No serious allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis) 


(*19日の情報は→ 新たに6000人余の医療従事者が接種 新型コロナワクチン – NHK より)




There was such a report yesterday!

“4 out of 78 people who received the vaccination at the Nagoya Medical Center in Nagoya City reported that they had a fever or did not feel well”

… but the actual situation is as follows.


・ 2 people recover within 30 minutes
・ 1 person has a fever the next day → returns to normal fever the day after next
・ 1 person is absent from work due to poor physical condition


As mentioned above, it is not an allergic reaction, and it seems to be a normal  reaction after vaccination, so I feel that it is not necessary to make news…




By the way, here is the contract status of Japanese vaccines! ↓


<Information on vaccines contracted in Japan>

Type (name) Contract status Number of inoculations (inoculation interval) Remarks
Pfizer (USA) 72 million people (within the year) twice / (21 days) -90 ℃ ~ -60 ℃ storage
AstraZeneca (UK) 60 million people twice / (28 days) -25℃ ~ -15℃storage
Moderna (USA)) 25 million people (until September) twice / (28 days) +2℃ ~ +8℃storage

(*新型コロナ】3社のワクチンの特徴は?日本への供給は? – NHK)




The story changes, but as you probably already know …

In response to the request from the Kansai 3 regions of Osaka, Kyoto, and Hyogo to cancel the declaration without waiting for the scheduled cancellation date of the state of emergency on March 7, the government seems to be considering canceling the three Kansai regions and the two Chukyo prefectures (Aichi and Gifu) …!



Specifically, the following

①Cancel the state of emergency at the end of February

②But until March 7th, the government will continue to request restaurants to shorten their business hours.



If each local government or government continues ②, we think that “What was “the state of emergency”?” , right…!?



I want the Japanese government not to set a precedent that “a state of emergency is not very meaningful”



Anyway, in terms of numbers, the infection situation is certainly improving …!

I just pray that it is not the situation that “the administration of each prefecture just looked at the numbers at hand and thought about canceling it, they are not planning for “measures against infectious diseases after cancellation” …!



By the way, unlike Japan, in the UK,

the government is very cautious, saying, “One in three adults has finished the first vaccination, so we will finally alleviate the lockdown that we are doing all the time.”



The UK is finally easing because vaccination has progressed so far …



On the other hand,

Japan will cancel the state of emergency for the time being just because of the decrease of the number of infected people…




I thought Japan was the best country in the world, but why did this happen …?!








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) 428,169

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 7,616

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 402,468

= 18,085 people ( -531)  ← 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.




There was news that made me laugh today …! Lol

Tottori Prefecture has announced a new vaccination schedule!



…Well, do you need vaccination? !!






While a total of 420,000 people have been infected nationwide, only 208 people have been infected in Tottori, which is super-superior in infection control!


(*At the bottom is Tottori prefecture, which has the smallest number of infected people in Japan!)

(*2月22日までの感染状況 – NHK)



I wish everyone could emulate Tottori! Lol






Please be very careful when you go out!
