The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has increased by nearly 300 on Monday compared to the same day of last week…



Currently, Japan is on a consecutive holiday called Golden Week holidays, so medical institutions are not open, so the number of infected people announced should decrease …

What does this (a surge of nearly 300 people) mean …




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

(Around 15:00 on May 03, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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

Number of seriously ill :  65 ( +2)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 1,348 ( –104)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 132,792 ( +694)

 *( )= 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)

 = 708 - 694  - 0

 = +14 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)

 = 141,713 - 132,792 - 1,898

 = 7,023 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)

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...





↑ In the details of prefectures with a large number of infected people, there was such information the other day …


(From the summary article on April 25)


◆◆◆ Kanagawa ◆◆◆
 ・”Meiji Gakuin University Street Dance Circle” in Yokohama City
       *Today [1] person(s) / Cumulative [12] person(s)


After that, there was no information on the news site, so I thought, “Oh, the infection didn’t spread anymore,” but in reality it was ridiculous …!



Actually, it’s not just an “outbreak in a circle”, but after an event to solicit new students, a drinking party was held in the riverbank with more than 90 people, and it seems that the outbreak occurred …


Moreover, it seems that nearly 60 people were infected after all …



The university’s response to this matter is also ridiculous…,



(“A circle solicitation performance for new students was held on April 11, and some students held an outdoor meeting with food and drink after the performance.”)


↑ “some students” “meeting” with more than 90 people …?




(“As of 12:00 on April 28, the number of infected people related to this cluster was 52.”)
(“Since we could not confirm the spread of infection on campus during the follow-up, the follow-up will be terminated.”)


↑ It seems that the university has finished the follow-up, even though the cluster has not ended and infected people are still being found …



Everything is really messed up …

I hope that at least the university and students haven’t spread the infection to unrelated people …




And the topic changes, but yesterday there were more than 100 infected people in Okayama, the highest number ever …


(Location of Okayama)


(Infection situation in Okayama)

(* The number of infected people on May 2 was 114)


Okayama is in the Chugoku region (not in the Kansai region where the infection is widespread), but I wonder if the spread of the infection is related to its proximity to Hyogo …?




And yesterday, Hokkaido also updated the highest number of infected people ever …


(Infection situation in Hokkaido)

(* The number of infected people on May 2 was 326)


At one point it was pretty low, but now that the infection has exploded …


By the way, the 4th wave is different from the past, and most of the infected people have been reported in Sapporo city …



Meanwhile, what actions did Hokkaido take …

“Policies requesting the government to apply priority measures such as prevention of spread”


… No … Prevention of spread

It’s already widespread …



I think they should declare a state of emergency as soon as possible. .. ..




By the way, there was such a topic …!

Hachioji City in Tokyo has been criticized for vaccination by taking the eccentric method of “first-come-first-served basis by telephone / internet reservation” last time, but also the second time, it seems that they use same way…


It seems that the “first-come-first-served reservation competition over the phone and the Internet, the same as last time,” will be held again …



I wonder why they don’t give out vaccination tickets (angry)



(Because they received a lot of reservation phone line congestion last time)

They said that “There is no problem if we increase the number of lines!”




Hokkaido and Hachioji … No local government can help …!







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) 610,065

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,450

+ (Number of hospital discharges )  531,728

= 67,887  people ( +582)  ← 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 …




There was finally news of information that I personally wanted very much! !! !!

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has announced the results of a “survey that asked young people why they went out despite the government’s request to refrain from going out unnecessarily!”


<Questionnaire results for 480 young people who were out>

Target: A total of 480 young people (30s or younger)

Survey location: Near Shibuya / Harajuku / Shinjuku station

Q.Why are you going out when the government is requesting the people to refrain from going out?

“It’s okay because I’m wearing a mask”  - 160 people
“Because everyone is also out”       -   73 people
“Young people do not get infected, and even if young people get infected, young people are mildly ill.” - 12 people
“Other”                       - 235 people


They say it’s okay to go out because they’re wearing masks (their infectious disease control) …



Hmm …

Apparently, the infection will continue to spread …





Please be careful when you go out!
