The number of newly infected people in Tokyo dropped from more than 1000 yesterday to just under 700 …!



I’d be happy if there were only more than 1000 people yesterday, but I can’t say anything yet because of the following possibilities …

①Since medical institutions are closed during consecutive holidays, only a small number of infected people are announced.
②Like when the number of people suddenly exceeded 1,300 at the end of the year, the person in charge wanted to take consecutive holidays for Golden Week, so as a result of reporting the total for several days at once, only the number exceeded 1,000 yesterday.



The number of infected people announced during the holidays may decrease abnormally, but I’m afraid of the infection explosion after the holidays …




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

(Around 15:00 on Apr 30, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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

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

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...





Yesterday was the first day of Golden Week Holidays!

The number of infected people continues to increase, but …after all there was such an article …(dry laugh)

↑”Compare the current number of people in the city with the first state of emergency (last year)!”
 ”Significantly increased!”


…… It doesn’t mean anything compared to last year’s state of emergency, right?


Last year everyone didn’t know what to do, and the virus was so scary that they refrained from going out, but for the past year, everyone has become accustomed to “not refraining from going out” because the government hasn’t taken strong measures…




There was also an article saying “No noticeable congestion!” …

However, the photos introduced in that article are … ↓


(* Haneda Airport in the morning of April 29)


… It ’s crowded enough, is n’t it?



There was also an article saying, “There weren’t many people in the tourist spots!”, but…

Looking at the photo as well …


(* Kamakura / Komachi Street at 12:28 on April 29)


If you look closely, there are a lot of people over there …?

Did the photographer deliberately shoot so that there were few people?


Even so, there are more than I expected …



About such “the atmosphere of the city does not seem to be a serious infection situation”, but former Osaka Governor Toru Hashimoto said,

“Given the disadvantages of staying at home, I think it’s a rational decision (only for that persons) that it’s okay to go out as long as they take measures against infectious diseases.”


“If you want to stop the flow of people, I think it’s impossible unless you legally force it.”


That’s right …


(The number of people in the city does not decrease as expected ↓)

(April 29, 15:00, Tokyo / Shibuya Scramble Crossing)


However … I’m a little surprised in the comment section of this article, the comments about emergency declarations and countermeasures, and the reactions on SNS …
It’s like follows.


“If I take measures against infectious diseases, there is no problem even if I go out or go out to play!”
→I can understand (I don’t want to understand)


“Cancel the Olympics!”
“If you will hold the Olympics, don’t ask us to refrain going out etc. now!”


No … The Olympics have nothing to do with the current infection situation, the state of emergency, the number of people in the city and the number of infected people, right?



In any case, if the number of infected people does not decrease, anyone can not return to “normal life”, because the government will continue to take measures unless the new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection is over.



It seems that many people are in the “terrible twos” …



Well … the government and local governments haven’t taken effective measures, and this situation continues for a year …, so it may be unavoidable for people to think and act like that …but…



By the way, there was also an article like this about it!

In response to a reporter’s question, “What have you been doing for the past year?”


Governor Yoshimura of Osaka
“I keep publishing information and explaining until there are no more questions.”
“I think there are criticisms that countermeasures are inadequate while infections are increasing so much.”
“But I have listened to the opinions of the staff and experts of the prefecture, judged various things, and implemented them.”



Well, the result is the current terrible infection situation, so you’re being asked, “What have you been doing for the past year?” …?



Even if they say it’s the result of hearing an expert, it doesn’t matter, the result is everything…



Prime Minister Suga also often uses the phrase “because the experts are saying”, but as a result, the infection situation cannot be controlled, so the opinions of the experts is meaningless …



It would be nice if they could cut off the meaningless things and take really effective measures to improve the infection situation …



Hmm … the road looks long … 🙁







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) 593,714

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,256

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 519,706

= 63,752  people ( +1,146)  ← 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 …




Information that “recent variant viruses are becoming more serious in young people” is circulating all over the world …!

To be honest, until now, I could only find the information on the aggravation of the disease from the 30s to the 40s, but

it seems that a man in his 20s who was infected with a variant virus of the type “N501Y” and had no underlying diseasebecame severe.


According to the doctor, it is clear that “the severity is due to the strength of the variant strain”



The indulgence for those who are walking around was that “Young people are asymptomatic even if they are infected, and they do not become seriously ill, so it is okay to walk around!”, but finally, a virus has emerged that makes young people more serious…



The medical system is likely to become difficult if the aggravation of young people becomes more serious, but it is a battle between the time until the end of COVID-19 by the vaccine and the time until the aggravation / infection situation becomes more serious …





Please be careful when you go out!
