The number of newly infected people in Tokyo exceeded 1000 the day before yesterday and then fell to just under 700 yesterday, so I thought, “Good, only the numbers from the day before yesterday were abnormally high …!”, but after all it has exceeded 1000 people today …



There is no doubt that the number will exceed 1,000 from here…

I just pray that it won’t accelerate from here anymore …!



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


the result was … [5588] people!


(*”The increase continues for 2 months without ever falling from the bottom“)


↑↑ After bottoming out in early March, the increase never stop for a moment! 🙁




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

(Around 15:00 on May 01, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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

Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 1050 - 763  - 6

 = +281 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)

 = 140,126 - 131,393 - 1,897

 = 6,836 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).

(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...





Well, it’s been a few days since the Golden Week holidays started!

It seems that politicians have already finished their work on GW’s infectious disease control.

Prime Minister Suga
“Japan will enter five consecutive holidays, but I want you to refrain from going out.”
→Just answer to reporters


Nishimura Minister for Economic Revitalization
“I would like to ask for a thorough stay home again.”
→Just remarks on Nico Nico Live Broadcasting


Like them, they don’t formally appeal as the government every day, they seem to answer just because they were asked … (dry laugh)





Although it is such a GW, there was such unfortunate news …!

Around this time last year, more than 700 people were infected with a super-large-scale outbreak on the luxury liner Diamond Princess, but while there are some areas in the country that have declared a state of emergency, it seems that they have decided to call at the port because an infected person came out on the luxury cruise ship “Asuka 2” that left Yokohama Port on the 29th of the day before yesterday …


Those who really don’t learn ………………


I think the operating company is desperate not to go bankrupt, but considering that there were enough applications to participate so that they could decide to leave the port, the Japanese are really strange ..



By the way, in connection with the same large-scale movement of people, it seems that subsidies are actually being issued at the event, and the policy is to increase the amount …!


<Cultural art>
 ・When events such as exhibitions and plays at museums are canceled
   →(until now)
     Compensation up to 25 million yen per group
    (from now on)
     Expanded to compensation up to 25 million yen per performance


<Sports event>
 ・Subsidy in case of cancellation
   →(until now)
     Compensation up to 10 million yen per game
    (from now on)
     Expanded to the upper limit of 25 million yen per game


.. It looks pretty generous when you look at the amount, but I can’t say anything because I don’t know how much the actual cost is …!

Is it a lot or small?



And for the first time there was a decent article on whether to extend this state of emergency!

Osaka Prefecture seems to judge on May 6th or 7th after GW(Golden Week Holidays)…!


Medical institutions are also closed during the consecutive holidays, and there is no doubt that the number of infected people announced will decrease until around mid-May, but do they intend to judge in that situation …?



Finally, two pieces of information about vaccines!

The first one is …

Regarding the large-scale vaccination venues scheduled to be set up in Osaka and Tokyo, it seems that Tokyo will be opened in the joint government building in Otemachi!


In addition, it seems that vaccination will be done from May 24th to 3 months, 7 days a week from 8:00 to 20:00!


And the target is elderly people and people with underlying illnesses living in the four areas of Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, and Chiba!



It’s a plan earlier than I expected!



By the way, it seems that Osaka is still investigating the candidate site …!



And the second one is …

When the staff collected the vaccine left in the container on Ishigaki Island, it was possible to secure it for 15 people, and it was said that the staff was vaccinated!


“That’s nice!” I thought … but apparently, “It’s no good because there is a risk of foreign matter getting mixed in!”



However, why is the vaccine left in the container??
When I think about it … it seems that they’re using the “syringe that can only take 5 doses from container” …!


What …? Didn’t you get a syringe that could take 6 doses …?


If there are other vaccination sites that use syringes that can only take 5 doses, a considerable amount of vaccine is wasted …



What the Japanese government is doing …!!! (angry)

Regarding vaccination, it’s really no good in Japan …







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) 599,700

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,338

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 523,886

= 65,476  people ( +1,724)  ← 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 …




I tried to graph the infection rate by age in Tokyo for the first time in a while!



When I graph it like that, we can understand the following things well.

①The number of infected people in their 20s to 30s (red line) has increased considerably.
②40s-50s (green line) is almost unchanged
③Those in their 60s and above (purple line) are stable at the point of decrease.
④The percentage of people under the age of 20 (blue line) is increasing a little.



Other generations are almost stable, so as the government and news say, it seems that we have to manage the increase in the number of infected people in their 20s and 30s (increased proportion) …!



Well, will they have ears to hear it…





Please be careful when you go out!
