The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has finally exceeded 1000 …


I thought that the number of infected people would exceed 1000, but when I actually saw it exceeded, it was … too … stuffy …



Even if you look at the number of people in the city like ↓, there is no sign that it will decrease, and since you can only see the future that will increase further, it seems that the number of infected people will increase sharply like the year-end and New Year holidays…




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

(Around 15:00 on Apr 29, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [1027] new infections in Tokyo


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

[479] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 47% of the total) 

[307] people is in their 40s to 50s
  (about 30% of the total)

     *under10 : [36] persons

Number of seriously ill :  58 ( +5)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,466 ( -37)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 1,453 ( +209)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 129,953 ( +709)

 *( )= 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)

 = 1027 - 709  - 9

 = +309 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)

 = 138,378 - 129,953 - 1,889

 = 6,536 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.

*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!”)










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...





The other day, there was news that the first infected person in Japan was confirmed for “Indian double variant strain”, but

 it seems that it was a woman in her 80s who was infected.


Furthermore, it was announced that not only one case has been confirmed in Japan, but 21 cases have been confirmed so far …


Yeah, it’s already widespread, isn’t it?


By the way, yesterday 28th, it seems that there are two positive immigrants from India …!


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 the topic changes … but it seems that the Olympics are still thinking about getting spectators …!

I thought it was decided that the event would be held without spectators …


It seems that the final decision will be made early in June …!


I can only see the future, which is “OK forcibly” again …

While saying something like “we will make it acceptable after taking all possible measures against infectious diseases” …




And yesterday, the number of infected people in Hyogo reached 600, the second highest in the past, but

 it seems that the medical system is currently in a critical situation …


(* Hyogo infection status)



In response, the neighboring prefecture, Tottori Prefecture, seems to have decided to respond as follows.

“There are few beds, and some people die while waiting at home.”

“Tottori is also a difficult situation, but I have to help save people’s life as a neighbor.”


So it seems that Tottori has decided to accept COVID-19 patients from Hyogo!


The upper limit is 5 people, but …

The infection situation in Tottori is also difficult because it seems that there are more infected people every day than before …


(* Infection status of Tottori)



↑ Until a while ago, there were 0 infected people every day, but recently there are infected people every day …




And yesterday there was some news from government and municipal analysis meetings!

It seems that the following was discussed at the monitoring meeting in Tokyo.

①Variant Stain (N501Y) accounted for 44.4% of all infected persons between April 11th and 18th.
②The current infection situation is “similar to before Christmas just before the infection explosion at the end of the year.”
③he amount of people at night is in a critical situation
④An important turning point where the long holidays will affect the future infection situation



However, in response to the result, all they did was only call for the long holidays …


They think that the word “state of emergency” is enough …



Mr. Nakagawa, the chairman of the Japan Medical Association, who always complains about the government’s measures, seems to have said as follows.

“I personally think that the criteria for canceling the state of emergency is when the number of infected people falls below 100.”

(*解除目安は「東京100人以下」 日本医師会“緊急事態”めぐり – Yahoo!)


Is it really okay to have “100 people or less”?


If it’s 100 people, it’s definitely going to increase again after the release …


It’s scary that the number of infected people that can be shown every day gradually paralyzes the sense of numbers like him…



And it seems that the expert meeting of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare discussed that the location of the cluster is changing … ↓

↑ However, this is just an analysis of “people who know the infection route”, and currently more than half of the infected people are as follows.

“Unknown infection route” = “I don’t know where I got infected”
(*Example: Yesterday’s Tokyo (925 infected) → Unknown infection route 529 (57%))

Therefore, they should analyze the routes and behaviors of people whose infection route is unknown.


I’m sure there will be a drinking party, a crowded train … a lot …




I hope there are many people who refrain from going out in Golden Week Holidays… :<







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) 589,042

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,217

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 516,219

= 62,606  people ( +2,348)  ← 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 …




By the way, from today, you have entered the Golden Week holidays!

Continuing from last year, we still have to refrain from going out etc, this year … (cry)



It seems that each local government is calling for self-restraint …


4 Governor of the Greater Tokyo Area (Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa)
“Thorough stay home during the Golden Week holidays”
“Don’t come to play, don’t go out to play”
(*連休は「ステイホーム」 公園・路上飲みやめて 首都圏4知事 – Yahoo!)


Governor Yoshimura of Osaka (+ 3 Kansai prefectures (Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto))
“Please refrain from moving or barbecuing in groups.”
(*吉村知事「バーベキュー控えて」 関西3府県がGW対 – Yahoo!)


Hyogo prefecture
“We want you to refrain from “going out, going home, and participating in events”.”
“Never go in and out of restaurants with alcoholic beverages and karaoke facilities.”
(*兵庫県「医療体制は危機的」県民に責任ある行動を呼びかけ – NHK)


Governor of Tokyo Koike
“Never stop drinking on the street”
“BBQ on the riverbank, outdoor leisure such as camping, home parties, bringing alcohol to restaurants…, 
I want you to refrain from them. “

(*小池都知事の“キャンプ自粛要請”に困惑の声 「路上飲みと一緒はあんまり」 – Yahoo!)


After all, just like just before the New Year’s super spread of infection, they don’t take any measures, just a call …



Local governments and governments that have recreated the situation where they have to declare a third state of emergency, and people who can’t help but want to play and don’t want to refrain from going out …



“People who continue to play without refraining from going out = high risk of infection”

that’s why some people say, “Prioritize them for vaccination!”, but I want people who are refraining from going out to be vaccinated first …


Because those people have put up with “going out etc.” so much for other people…………!





Please be careful when you go out!
