The number of new infections in Tokyo was almost the same as last week yesterday, but today it is again much higher than last week …


There is no sign that the number of people in the city will decrease, and it seems that it is still far from the peak …




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

(Around 15:00 on Apr 27, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [828] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to over100s

[339] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 41% of the total)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 128,601 ( +741)

 *( )= increase  from the day before


Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

 = 828 - 741  - 3

 = +84 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)

 = 136,426 - 128,601 - 1,879

 = 5,946 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).

*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 …)

Currently, some areas in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto) have been declared a state of emergency for the third time in Japan …!


Along with that, I have summarized the specific contents of “What kind of measures will be taken in the state of emergency?”, The contents of the interviews with Prime Minister Suga and Chairman Omi, and the future progress of the vaccine in an easy-to-understand manner!



  (*こちらのまとめは4月24日のまとめ記事を個別記事化したものになります!) 昨日4月23日の夜、 ようやく緊急事態宣言が発令されましたね…! (*東京 大阪 兵庫 京都に緊急事態宣言 25日~来月1...








(April 26 (mon) around 15:00, Tokyo / Shibuya Scramble Crossing)


The day before that was Sunday, and it was news that the people of Tokyo under the state of emergency had moved to play to a neighboring prefecture with priority measures such as prevention of spread.

(*「川崎に来るしかない」改札からあふれる人…宣言初日、都民押しかけた神奈川 – Yahoo!)


Regarding today’s crowd, a state of emergency was issued over the weekend, so I hope people will adjust their schedule at the company today and refrain from going out from tomorrow …



By the way, there was also data on the congestion of morning commuting rush hours in the four regions during the state of emergency!

The amount of people rushing to work every Monday morning in each region over the past year looks like this! ↓


(Vertical axis: The unit is 10,000 people)

(Tokyo Sta)



(Kyoto Sta)


(Sannomiya Sta – Hyogo)


(Osaka Sta)


I feel that this time it hasn’t decreased so much …!



Rather…, it seems that the number of people during the morning rush hour has not decreased more than expected even at the time of the first state of emergency …!

(impression) “Since the number of commuters has had to decrease by 70%, so I wonder if it has decreased by 70% …”
(Reality) “Eh … it’s only reduced by about 30% to 50% …”


It seems that it has not decreased by 10% in the third emergency declaration…!



Hmm … I have no choice but to expect a dramatic decrease in Golden Week Holidays …




By the way, there was such news today!

Last year, the government provided a fixed amount of 100,000 yen per person to all the people, but according to research teams in Japan and Australia, 70,000 yen out of 100,000 yen was saved …!
(It is the analysis result of the data of 230,000 users of the household account book application)



At that time last year, the benefit was supposed to be for the support of people in need of living, but before I knew it, it became meaningless as a benefit to “EACH Japanese person”. If there is another benefit, I would like the government to only provide it to those who are really in need …



In the first place, it is strange at the following points….

Family of 5 → 500,000 yen
Living alone → 100,000 yen

, right? (dry laugh)



And the topic changes, but it seems that there was mistake in vaccination again…

This time, an 86-year-old woman was vaccinated at an elderly facility just two days after the first vaccination …!
(Normally, the second vaccination is about 3 weeks later)


According to the local government, she was vaccinated because she was nearby at that time…


Why do they manage important vaccination and life-threatening tasks so sloppyly …?

Since the vaccination of the elderly began in the middle of last month, I feel that the news of mistakes has been flowing once or twice a week …




And recently, “The variant stain” in India has become a hot topic, but …

it seems that one case was finally confirmed in Tokyo …


However, maybe all the Japanese people thought,
“The virus seems to have already entered Tokyo …”  (dry laugh)



On SNS such as Twitter, it was talked about that many of the positive people in the airport quarantine yesterday came from India



For me, who organizes airport quarantine every day like follows…

(From the summary article on April 26)

Most days there are at least one positive entry from India, and there are quite a few days when more than four or five positives are found …



There is no doubt that COVID-19 will continue to be imported unless the government fundamentally changes its mindset



About the quarantine at the airport and the amount of people in the city … I really want the government to be solid ~~~~~~~~! (C\cry)




By the way, what is a “The double variant strain”?

The variant strain is originally a “virus with one mutation”, but the “The double variant strain” is a “virus with two mutations”, and the double variant strain found in India seems to have the following characteristics…

①Variant strains with the characteristics of highly infectious variant strains
②Variant strain that partially passes through the body’s immune response

(*インド「二重変異株」猛威、何が起きているのか – WSJ)








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) 577,338

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,088

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 509,047

= 58,203  people ( +1,241)  ← 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, there was an article in which the Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura, who is the leader in measures against new coronavirus infectious diseases in Japan, said like this!

(For Asakusa Engei Hall, which declared that it would continue to operate as “necessary for maintaining social life”)

“I want you to respond to requests for leave while using support measures.”



As I introduced the other day in this “Summary Article”, they declared the response during the state of emergency as follows.

(From the summary article on April 25)

●”Tokyo” Asakusa Performing Arts Hall (Yose)

 →Continue business with the claim that “Yose is necessary for maintaining social life”
   Continue to eat and drink in the hall
   (* Many people are angry at this response because yose is a traditional Japanese popular entertainment, like a “comedy”.)

(寄席、無観客応じない決断 「社会生活に必要なもの」 – Yahoo!)


Until now, it was judged that “the risk of infection is low in movie theaters and theaters if the infection prevention measures are thoroughly implemented”, but Minister Nishimura said, “In the current infection situation, even if the infection prevention measures are thoroughly implemented. I have to ask for a leave of absence. “



In the comment section of this Yahoo! article, there were a lot of comments like the following.

“It’s strange that “Yose” shouldn’t be open despite that the government will hold the Olympics !”
“The leave is at the request stage, so they don’t have to comply!”




Did you forget …?

Currently, “state of emergency” is being declared …



The case of “Yose” and the case of the Olympics are different, and the staff at Asakusa Engei Hall originally said that eating and drinking was OK …

Laughing out loud while eating … is the maximum risk of infection, isn’t it?



In the first place, Shiraku Tatekawa, a popular rakugo storyteller (who actually appears in the yose), even said, “Successive Masters also said that it is a job that does not require rakugo (yose)” …
(*立川志らく 「寄席は社会生活維持に必要」主張に「落語は、なくてもいい仕事」と吐露 – Yaoo!)



In this way, it seems that the weight of the word “state of emergency” has disappeared not only for young people but also for a wide range of age groups …



Despite it’s the “state of emergency” that If it is declared overseas, the entire city will be blocked and only about 100m from the house will be allowed to go out …



(The government that made this word meaningless is bad …)
I hope many people will know that it is an “emergency situation” now …!






Please be careful when you go out!
