*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 number of infected people in Japan is gradually increasing …!



* Daily number of infected people in Japan ↓



↑ Looking at the graph vaguely like this, it seems like “It’s just flat and hasn’t increased” … but


in this way, if I draw a red line at the lowest point of the “7-day average value (gray polygonal line”” … ↓


↑ Obviously, it has been increasing for the past one or two weeks …?



In Tokyo and Saitama, the number of infected people is clearly increasing every day, but


(* For example, Tokyo)



In Miyagi, which has been a hot topic these days (the infection is super-expanding), 

it seems that 200 people are waiting for PCRtest at the stage of last week, and they have to wait for about 3 or 4 days …



And about in the four Kanto regions (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama) where the state of emergency was finally lifted yesterday …

As you may already know,

the request to shorten the business hours to restaurants and karaoke shops (until 9:00 pm) will be extended until April 21st …!



Why did you cancel the state of emergency? .. ..



But what about in reality?

I wonder if it will be more profitable to reopen the business even if I do this, or if the longer the measures go, the more restaurants become financially difficult …!



By the way, regarding this request to shorten the business hours, about the order to shorten the business hours to 32 stores in Tokyo …

(Orders to stores that do not comply with the request)

It seems that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government chose “stores that are likely to induce late-night business of other stores” as to how to narrow down the stores that issue orders from “about 1800 stores that do not comply with the request” …!



No … let’s order all the stores …



Government of Tokyo is too strange about all COVID-19 measures.



Tokyo is like that … but the Japanese government is …

As a measure to prevent the re-spread of the infection, the following things will be done to look for signs of the re-spread of the infection!

・5000 tests per day for asymptomatic people (10,000 after consecutive holidays)
・Regular tests for facilities for the elderly
・Focused testing in downtown areas
・Data analysis of private sector tests


The point is, “We will do a lot of PCR tests!” …!


However, as a result, even if the government finds a sign of the spread of the infection, it seems that the only thing it will do is “request for shortening business hours” and it will not be possible to restrict the movement of people, so the test seems to be meaningful.




The only countermeasure is to test, and there seems to be no other “countermeasure that does not spread the infection fundamentally” … What will happen in the future … It’s too scary …!








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) 461,813

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 8,957

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 437,122

= 15,734 people ( +795)  ← 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 …




Looking at the world, WHO (= World Health Organization) said,

“Because the vaccine supply gap between developed and developing countries is large, developed countries should not try to vaccinate all the people after vaccination of high-risk people. Developed countries should obediently provide vaccines to WHO. We will distribute the vaccine to people at high risk of infection in developing countries.



On the other hand, in Japan …

The government said as follows.

“In local governments and remote islands with a population of 1000 or less, the general public will be vaccinated along with the vaccination of the elderly!

“People from embassies around the world in Japan are also eligible for vaccination because their premises are their place of residence!”


Certainly, considering the characteristics of “infectious diseases”, it is best to “completely eliminate the virus from the area”!



I understand what WHO is saying, but it’s difficult to make a decision in a difficult situation all over the world.




But… my vaccination turn is likely to be later … (cry)
(me = Tokyo, ordinary people laughing)






Please be very careful when you go out!
