The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has spread further this week …


It was this week when the 700s were becoming commonplace, so next week … it’s too scary to think how much the numbers will increase …



And today is Saturday, so I calculated the total number of newly infected people in Tokyo for one week, but…


 the result was… [3983] people!



Considering the week when the increase started, it has doubled …

Moreover, the increase has been increasing for 6 consecutive weeks …!



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

(Around 15:00 on Apr 17, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [759] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to 90s

[395] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 52% of the total) 

[190] people is in their 40s to 50s
  (about 25% of the total)

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

Number of seriously ill :  45 ( +2)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,220 ( +61)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 1,091 ( +174)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 122,875 ( +456 )

 *( )= increase  from the day before


Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of people who completed medical treatment)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 759 - 456  - 10

 = +293 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)

 = 129,540 - 122,875 - 1,836

 = 1,846 people


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


* A hospital in Tokyo has secured 4716 beds (+332 beds for critically ill patients).
 → According to national standards, the number of beds for severe cases was 1024.

*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!”)










Governor Koike of Tokyo said as follows.

“Please do not come to Tokyo as much as possible unless you absolutely need to go to work.”

Don’t say ‘I’m tired anymore’. The fourth wave will be very serious”, but…

On the contrary, we want to say to her, “We’re tired to you who are just ineffective measures and meaningless calls!” …, right? (dry laugh)



Regarding the recent infection situation like that, the number of areas subject to “priority measures such as spread prevention” has increased again …!

This time it seems to be 4 areas of “Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Aichi”!

And the period seems to be from April 20th to May 11th!



Why do you exclude tomorrow’s Saturdays and the day after tomorrow’s Sundays…?

The number of people in the city on Saturdays and Sundays is probably the maximum risk of infection …!


Hmm …(discouraged)



The current Status looks like this!


<Target areas for priority measures such as prevention of spread>

A total of 10 prefectures

・From April 5th
 Osaka     - Osaka City
 Hyogo    - Kobe City, Nishinomiya City, Amagasaki City, Ashiya City
 Miyagi   - Miyagi-Sendai City
・From April 12th
 Tokyo    - 23 wards and 6 cities
       (Tachikawa City, Hachioji City, Musashino City, Fuchu City, Chofu City, Machida City)
 Kyoto    - Kyoto City only
 Okinawa  - Naha City and Okinawa Main Island (9 cities)

・From April 20th
 Saitama  - Saitama City, Kawaguchi City
 Chiba   - Funabashi City, Ichikawa City, Matsudo City, Kashiwa City, Urayasu City
 Kanagawa - Yokohama City, Kawasaki City, Sagamihara City
 Aichi    - Nagoya City (until 20:00), other than that (until 21:00)
         (The time is the closing time of the request to shorten the business hours of the restaurant)

In addition, Ehime and others are also considering requests.
(愛媛県 「まん延防止等重点措置」の適用 要請の検討に – NHK)



If the situation is so far, I think they must make an “emergency declaration” to Japan as a whole…



In that regard, according to Omi, chairman of the government subcommittee …

In fact, as Governor Yoshimura of Osaka also said, it will be two weeks next Monday from the application of the priority measures in Osaka (April 5), so they will make a final decision on whether to apply the state of emergency at the beginning of the week…!



Well … Looking back from April 5th to today …

The infection exploded in Osaka, didn’t it?

As we expected as of April 5th …



At present, there is no sign of stopping and the number is increasing in a straight line …!





In Israel, the most vaccinated country in the world, the new coronavirus infection is coming to an end so that the regulation of outdoor mask wearing obligation will be lifted from April 18th tomorrow…, but



Japan and Israel … Why are they so different! (cry)




And finally, in the 4 Kanto regions (Tokyo, Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba) to which the “priority measures such as prevention of spread” were applied,

it seems that the governor of those 4 regions sent a message to the citizens of Tokyo and the prefecture!


“Stop moving across prefectures”

“Stop drinking on the street”

“Don’t karaoke at restaurants”




Hmm … how many people will comply!??
(Because most people feel that “again they are making a pointless call”)







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) 531,618

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 9,646

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 479,037

= 42,935  people ( +1,944)  ← 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 …




There was subtly new information today!

Chairman Shigeru Omi of the Government Subcommittee
“A key indicator in determining the application of priority measures is the comparison of the number of infected people last week and this week.”

Be careful if the number of infected people has increased significantly compared to the previous week for more than two weeks.”

“Tokyo has already increased significantly from the previous week for more than 6 weeks.”



Somehow, I was tweeting like this every Saturday as a summary of the week ↓


(I’m sorry … I’m tweeting only in Japanese …)


 I introduced the total for one week on Twitter, but this seems to be quite important …!



Until now, I never thought that the government would attach importance to this number …



I will continue to tell you every week without skipping! Lol






Please be careful when you go out!
