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


In March, there are fewer “days with fewer numbers than the same day of the previous week” …


(* Red frame = day when the number of infected people increased from the same day of the previous week)




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


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



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



Well, I will summarize

 = +73 people


Estimated total number of infected people in Tokyo as of today

   - (Number of deaths)

 (Capacity of 5,048 people)

*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!”)









The state of emergency in the four Kanto regions has been lifted and the first weekday has started …!


Each governor says something like this …


Governor of Tokyo Koike
“Period not to rebound from today”
(↑ … No … It’s already increasing every day …)


Governor Morita of Chiba
“Release of declaration is not banquet lifting”


Governor Ohno of Saitama
“Continue to cooperate with infection prevention measures”


Governor Kuroiwa of Kanagawa
“It’s the season when you want to go out, but firmly
Rebounds can be avoided if infection prevention measures are taken. “


↑ Unfortunately, they don’t feel a sense of crisis, and they are rather optimistic …!



Although the decline has stopped in every region, it has not yet entered a full-scale increase, so I hope that the infection will not spread again!



By the way, the morning rush hour in Tokyo is …


<Interview at Tokyo Station>
(About the amount of people in the commuting rush)

Women in their 50s
“It didn’t decrease during the declaration, so it doesn’t change.”

35 year old male
“It has increased compared to last week.”

41 year old female
“I thought it was increasing dramatically with the release, but it was not so much.”


Even during the state of emergency, the number of people in the city was not small, so everyone felt like “I thought it would be overcrowded when it was released, but it was just crowded as usual” …!



Also, the other day, I introduced the information that “Disneyland will relax the admission limit to 10,000 people until the end of March” …

After April,

・Further ease the number of visitors to 20,000
・Advance the opening time by 1 to 2 hours
 (Currently the park is open from 10:00 → 8:00 or 9:00)



In this way, corporate activities will gradually return to “normal mode” in line with the cancellation of the state of emergency …!




It looks like that in the Kanto region, but on the other hand, in areas that were not added to the second state of emergency declaration area …

Miyagi : Announcing a unique state of emergency
     (March 25th to April 12)

(Infection status in the prefecture)

(*宮城の感染状況 – NHK)


Yamagata : Announcing a unique state of emergency
     (March 22th to April 11)

(Infection status in the prefecture)

(*山形の感染状況 – NHK)


In this way, the infection has spread so much that it is far from the third wave (year-end and New Year holidays), and as a result, a unique state of emergency has been issued …



If the four Kanto regions expand again as described above …

It seems that the number of infected people in Japan will be close to 10,000 per day again, so please do not increase it …



And as for the measures of these two prefectures, the government seems to intend to that “The next time the infection spreads, we will take the same measures as the second state of emergency that had been made until the other day.”

(→感染再拡大の兆候 「まん延防止等重点措置」活用含め対応 政府 – HNK)



Apparently, among the politicians, “(that loose) second state of emergency” seems to be the basis of the countermeasures.

It’s tooooooooooooo scary….!



By the way, it seems that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has been sued by the restaurant management company that the order to shorten business hours is illegal …!

That’s natural …

This “Summary Article” also introduces the details of Tokyo every day …but

(Number of infected people in Tokyo on March 22: 187

Infection at a dinner with friends and acquaintances [3] people

↑ In this way (although they cannot determine the infection route of infected people), if only an sloppy number of people were announced, then the restaurants would say, “No, the infection has not occurred at the restaurant.”


I wish they had collected more proper data …!




The article has become very long today …!

Finally, a positive topic …!

It seems that two new clinical trials of the domestic vaccine under development have begun!

(Daiichi Sankyo, a major pharmaceutical company, and KM Biologics, a pharmaceutical company in Kumamoto City)

With this, 4 clinical trials of domestic vaccines are in progress!




There seems to be no solution but vaccination, so please do your best to accelerate vaccine development ~~~~~~~! (T_T)







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) 459,895

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 8,936

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 436,020

= 14,939 people ( +357)  ← 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 …




Today, I mainly picked up domestic news and introduced it, but overseas


Vaccination has begun in Taiwan, which is super super super super excellent, which has ended that new coronavirus (COVID-19) at a fairly early stage, and

tourists seem to be almost wiped out in Hawaii as usual, and the number of visitors to Hawaii from April last year to January this year decreased by 91% from the previous year, and

in France, a large party of more than 6000 people was held to violate (protest?) the regulations against the new coronavirus (COVID-19),
(9 people were arrested and dozens were fined)



There were the above news!

Especially in Taiwan …



The number of people infected per day in the whole country is still less than 10 …!



I hope Japan will be like this too! (anxiety and expectations)






Please be very careful when you go out!
