Well, I will summarize

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

 = 334 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)

 = 132,042 - 124,872 - 1,856

*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).

*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!”)










As of Monday (19th), the state of emergency in Osaka might be decided on the 20th, but yesterday (20th), the government eventually carried over the conclusion about the state of emergency …

It seems that there is no point in carrying it over, but maybe the government wants to issue a state of emergency in line with Tokyo and Hyogo …


By the way, Tokyo and Hyogo are still under consideration in the prefecture …!
(*新型コロナ 兵庫県も緊急事態宣言要請で最終調整 – NHK)
(*小池都知事 緊急事態宣言「できるだけ早く」 近く政府に要請へ – NHK)



→ While summarizing like that …

Hyogo Prefecture has officially requested the government to issue a state of emergency …!

(Today 21st night)

(*兵庫県 緊急事態宣言の発出を要請 – NHK)




Osaka seems to be considering the following measures with this state of emergency …!


<Infection measures under consideration by Osaka>


Consider requesting business suspension for industries not only restaurants but also other industries, as in the case of the first state of emergency.
  (Department stores, shopping malls, movie theaters, commercial facilities, underground malls, theme parks, etc.)



・ Consider three types of requests to shorten business hours to restaurants
 ①Request for closure, not request for shortening business hours
 ②Request to shorten business hours + request to close on Saturdays and Sundays
 ③Only request for shortening business hours (same as before)



・The school will not be closed. (??)
 However, for children who do not want to go to school due to infection control, consider learning support such as online classes


(*大阪府 緊急事態宣言の発出 国に要請することを決定 – NHK)



Regarding the “request for closure of department stores and shopping malls” in the ↑, it seems that each group has issued a request for “let me do business!” …

(*“宣言”でも デパートや商業施設など 営業の継続を要請 – NHK)

In terms of infectious disease countermeasures, it is in a state of “what are you talking about?”, But it is clear from the second state of emergency that the number of people in the city will not decrease with the state of emergency, and it is on the verge of bankruptcy before that. So there is no doubt that the industry wants to do business …


I think that it is important for governments to be able to pay compensation fee for suspension.




On the other hand, in Tokyo

Governor of Tokyo Koike
“Currently, we are conducting a comprehensive inspection of what we should do from the perspective of protecting the medical care provision system.”



Hey … It’s too late to do a full check …

That should be over …



As you can see, Tokyo still doesn’t seem to know what the people who should implement the measures should do …



It’s hell …




And at the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s expert meeting to advise on countermeasures … 

there wasn’t much meaningful talk as usual … (dry laugh), however, there was only one but meaningful information!


About the current status of variant strains, it seems that

・80% of infections are already variant strains in Osaka and Hyogo
・It has already reached 30% in Tokyo


The topic of variant spices such as spices in the UK and spices in Brazil began to appear at the end of last year, and it has been 4 or 5 months since then, so it can be said that it is no longer a “variant strain” but a “conventional virus”.
(Because it has existed for a long period of time that can be called “conventional”)
However, since the infectivity is 70% higher than that of the virus until last year, it must be considered that the infection situation is completely different from the previous one.



…… What? You say “What are the other contents of the expert meeting?” ?

①It is necessary to suppress infection during the Golden Week holidays (consecutive holidays of around 10 days) from the end of this month.
②Since the medical system is already near the limit, securing a bed is the highest priority.
③The number of people in the downtown area at night has not decreased so much.
④Many infections in workplaces, club activities, and club activities

It looks like this …

You see … they don’t have much information …?  (dry laugh)




Either way, I feel like a state of emergency will be declared this week (this weekend?) …, but what will happen to the contents …!







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) 548,256

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 9,786

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 489,603

= 48,867  people ( +2,371)  ← 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 …




According to WHO (World Health Organization), the number of newly infected people per week is already the highest ever in the world …!

Even if vaccination begins worldwide, or if know-how is gradually gained after a year, the number of infected people is the highest ever and the worst pace ever …



And … the number of cases of serious illness between the ages of 25 and 59 is increasing worldwide …



It is typical of virus mutations, but it is becoming more and more infectious, and it is mutating so that it works (becomes more severe) even in places (young people) that have not worked until now …



We have to suppress it before it make an unmanageable mutation …!





Please be careful when you go out!
