The number of new infections in Tokyo is still higher than same day of last week …

It’s been 8 days in a row …



And even if I look at the number of infected people by prefecture, I’m worried that only Tokyo has an unusually large number of people …




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


(Around 15:00 on Mar 16, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



The amount of people in the city is … as usual (many) …!



Well, I will summarize

***  Information on people under medical treatment in Tokyo  ***

Number of hospitalized :  1,268 ( -2)

Number of seriously ill :  42 ( +-0)

Hotel medical treatment : 485 ( -6)

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 111,601 ( +234)

Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of people who completed medical treatment)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 300 - 234  - 16

 = +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)

 = 115,884 - 111,601 - 1,605

 = 2,678 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.

*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!”)










There was news that I had completely forgotten today! Lol

In Miyagi prefecture, “Go To Eat”, which was restarted on February 23, was stopped again from March 16 due to the rapid increase in the number of infected people in the area recently …!



Oh … I forgot,

but there were some areas where the business was restarted …!



I was a little surprised like that!

It’s true that only four areas in the Kanto region are in the state of emergency!



It seems that it was stopped after only 3 weeks of resumption because “clusters occurred one after another in restaurants such as Sendai City after the resumption” …!


(* Daily number of infected people in Miyagi prefecture)



It’s too scary to think about resuming GoTo Eat in Tokyo in the future …!




And about “Is the state of emergency (extension) in the four Kanto regions canceled on March 21?”, which suddenly became a hot topic last weekend,

Prime Minister Suga

“When I extended it for two weeks, I wanted to improve the tightness of the medical care provision system.”

“Currently, daily number of infected people is flat.”

“It’s not a situation now to say whether to extend the declaration.”


Chairman Omi of the government subcommittee

“The state of emergency was effective.”

“We should avoid making decisions without analyzing what is causing the bottoming out.”

“Isn’t there an invisible source of infection?”

“If we leave it alone and just extend or cancel it, you can’t solve COVID-19.”



Even those who take command of infectious disease control in Japan seem to be in a state of “I don’t understand!” about currently infection situation…!




By the way, what the governors of the four Kanto regions think about currently situation  of the state of emergency is as follows.


Governor of Tokyo Koike

“Now we are strengthening the test system and securing beds.”

“It is important not to get infected”


(*Daily number of infected people in Tokyo)



Governor Ohno of Saitama

“The number of newly infected people is increasing and there are signs of rebound.”

“At this point, we are not in a situation to request the cancellation of the state of emergency.”


(*Daily number of infected people in Saitama)



Governor Morita of Chiba

“I want to take thorough measures so that it can be canceled as planned.”


(*Daily number of infected people in Chiba)



Governor Kuroiwa of Kanagawa

“Although it is said that it has stopped falling, it is gradually falling.”

“The direction of declaring is becoming clear.”

“The effect of the declaration itself is fading.”

“It is better to release it once and gradually relax it while thoroughly implementing measures.”


(*Daily number of infected people in Kanagawa)



In other words,

Saitama  → Cancellation is still a long way off

Chiba  → They want to cancel

Kanagawa → They want to release it (super optimistic)

Tokyo  → As usual, say only meaningless things



Even if it is extended as it is, it is meaningless unless additional measures are taken, but since it is a state of emergency, it is thought that the number of infected people does not increase rapidly, so it is a difficult place …



It would be best if the number of infected people continued to decrease …!








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) 450,451

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 8,702

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 428,241

= 13,508 people ( +180)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

there are many days when the numbers increase this week too …




It seems that the following conditions must be met in order for Tokyo to reach Stage 2!

・ Number of inpatients → 9 people more (* from 1270 as of March 15)
・ Number of seriously ill patients → Achieved (251 as of March 15/255 standard)
・ Number of recuperators → Reduce 540 people more (from 2628 as of March 15)

SHowever … The current situation is during the “flat-increasing?” period, so it seems that as soon as the state of emergency is lifted, the number of infected people is likely to increase dramatically …



I hope I can manage to make a soft landing!






Please be very careful when you go out!
