The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has been “more than last week” for a long time …!


I’m pretty worried that the rate of infection in people in their 20s and 30s is increasing as the number increases …




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

(Around 15:00 on Apr 04, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

 = -97 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)

 = 122,951 - 117,602 - 1,779

 = 3,570 people


*Tokyo currently has 12 facilities for infected people
 (Capacity of 5,048 people)

*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!”)










From such a topic today …

Recently, many people have abbreviated “priority measures such as prevention of spread” as “MANBOU”,
(It seems that experts in the government also call it that way …)

but the leader of Japan’s COVID-19 measures, Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura, said, “The term MANBOU is used in Japan, but since there is a bit of a playful atmosphere, so I try not to do it. Because this is a serious measure.


Well … the reason is clear …



Because we associate this … ↓

(* “MANBOU” means “Sunfish” in Japan…lol)



*The Japanese pronunciation of 
“priority measures such as prevention of spread”
is as follows.

Manen Boushi Nado Juten Sochi”


Therefore, it is abbreviated as “MANBOU”.






Actually, I try not to say “MANBOU” for the same reason, but in the first place, we all know that almost name will be abbreviated (Because Japanese people abbreviate all “name”) , so the government should have been thinking about it… (dry laugh)



Well … it’s not a meaningful measure, and many people say “MANBOU” in the sense of a little ridiculous (dry laugh).




And since there isn’t much news about the new coronavirus (COVID-19) on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, there was also a special article like this!

This is an interview with former Prime Minister Abe!


It was featured how the first state of emergency was issued while Japanese law did not allow “lockdown” like overseas!
(First state of emergency = April-May 2020)




Well … It didn’t need to read because everyone knew it … by the way, the first state of emergency really worked …!



At one point, the number of infected people nationwide has dropped to 21!
(May 25, 2020)

It’s not “Tokyo”!, but “Nationwide”!

I can’t think of it now …!


(*Infection status in Japan since last year)



At that time, the people were scared of unknown viruses more than necessary, so the number of people in the city was drastically reduced!



↑We can’t think of it now, right …?!




(Around 15:00 on Apr 04, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)




1 year after that…

The government thinks that the effect of that time will not be forgotten and that it will be managed with few new measures, and the people have lost their fear of the virus …



Now that many people are no longer afraid of the virus (in a bad way), the same measures as the first and second state of emergency can’t work …




Are there any talented and strong leaders~~~~???!









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) 488,058

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 9,268

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 452,814

= 25,976 people ( +21)  ← 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’s article reminds me of the first state of emergency(lol), but the current infection situation is like this ↓















The number of infected people is increasing dramatically in Japan in line with the global trend …

And unlike the world, March and April are the travel season, welcome and farewell party season, and banquet season in Japan …



Hmm … just thinking about it makes me scared! (dry laugh)



I hope this (in a bad way) infection spread bonus stage will end before it manages to super-spread …!





Please be very careful when you go out!
