The number of new infections in Tokyo is again higher than on the same day of the previous week …



This week, all days except Thursday and Friday increased from the previous week …


Also, even if you look at the total for one week



Increasing for 2 consecutive weeks …

Tomorrow is the 21st of the cancellation of the state of emergency, but it’s a little too scary …




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


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



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



Well, I will summarize

the breakdown of the number of new infections in Tokyo + α …!

*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)

     * In Hokkaido, outbreaks are rarely known on the day of the outbreak, and since it will be revealed and announced the next day or later, the cumulative number of people will be announced instead of the number on the day of the outbreak.

*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!”)









Looking overseas,

it seems that restrictions on going out and business restrictions on shops can be started again in Paris, France, etc …


<Regarding restrictions on going out in France>

Period:  March 20-4 weeks
Region:  Paris and northern regions
Reason:  Due to the spread of infection by mutant species
      (Approximately 40,000 infected people per day)
      (73% of infected people are mutants)

Contents:  ①Moveable only within 10km from home
        * No going out after 7 pm
        * Documents stating the reason are required when going out
       ②Only daily necessities / book stores can be opened



By the way, the current infection situation in France is ↓



↑↑ It’s increasing …




With that kind of feeling, regulations are being imposed again overseas,
but about in Japan …


(The daily number of infected people in Japan) 



↑ With this kind of feeling, the number of infected people in Japan is increasing a little, and in Hyogo etc., the proportion of mutants seems to be 50% or more (about 55%) as in overseas, 

(神戸市 半数以上が変異ウイルス 割合は約55% 11日までの1週間 – NHK)


but as the temperature gets warmer, the number of people in the city is steadily increasing like follows…↓


(Comparison between “4 weeks until last week” and “March 18” in the Greater Tokyo Area)
(*解除決定の18日 1都3県人出 渋谷区やさいたま市で増加 – NHK)


↑ In this way, March 18th (Thursday) is a weekday, but the flow of people is increasing day by day in various places …!



Tokyo Disneyland also

seems to relax the admission limit from 5,000 to 10,000 during the spring break from March 22 to the end of March, following the cancellation of the state of emergency on March 21.
(*Business hours are from 10:00 to 19:00)



Like the Governor of Tokyo,

no matter how much each governor says, “I call for self-restraint because the infection situation is not good!”, it’s meaningless …

Because, like Tokyo Disneyland, corporate activities become more active when the state of emergency is lifted.



Well, I think that the government and the governors have known that the “call” is meaningless in the past year, so it’s just “showing the attitude of taking measures” …



Minister of Finance Aso is super easy to understand as usual that he said

“The area around people’s mouths is rough with masks and dermatologists are thriving. Do I still have to wear masks?”



With that feeling, it seems that Japan is entering a “careless mode” rather than a “relaxation mood” …!




Hmm …

It seems that the infection is likely to spread, but

spring break, welcome and farewell party season, cherry blossom viewing, climate …,

if not as much as during the New Year holidays …! (cry)








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) 456,459

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 8,830

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 432,787

= 14,842 people ( +295)  ← 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 …




Just because there were a lot of negative articles, ↑ became a summary full of negatives … lol



There are also positive articles like this!

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare seems to have purchased 2 million people (13.9 billion yen) of Avigan for stockpiling!

(*Avigan … a therapeutic drug for the new coronavirus (COVID-19))



In addition, the AstraZeneca vaccine was once suspended in each country due to cases of thrombosis in Europe, but

EU health authorities said that “it cannot be completely proved that vaccination is unrelated to the rare case of thrombosis.” , but they concluded that it is a “safe and effective vaccine”, and vaccination will be resumed in each country!



It’s safe for the time being!



And it seems that the production of this AstraZeneca vaccine has

finally started in Japan (Kumamoto)! !!

It seems that more than 90 million of the 120 million contracts will be produced in Japan, so I’m glad if vaccination accelerates explosively with this! !!




There are a lot of scary things, such as an increase in the number of people in the city and an increase in the number of infected people, but I hope that the vaccination will end it soon!






Please be very careful when you go out!
