Since the middle of March, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo has been “decreased from same day of previous week” …!


(“It’s been a long time since that day.”)


… But during the Golden Week holidays, there are no medical institutions available, so it’s natural that the number will decrease… so I’m not very happy about today’s decrease…




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

(Around 15:00 on May 04, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [609] new infections in Tokyo


・Today’s newly infected people are men and women in their under10 to 90s

[271] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 44% of the total) 

[192] people is in their 40s to 50s
  (about 32% of the total)

     *under10 : [25] persons

 ・ I couldn’t confirm the information today …


***  Information on people under medical treatment in Tokyo  ***

Number of hospitalized :  2,128 ( +66)

Number of seriously ill :  65 ( +-0)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,488 ( -63)

Home medical treatment :  2,154 ( +92)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 1,165 ( -183)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 133,488 ( +696)

 *( )= 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)

 = 609 - 696  - 1

 = -88 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)

 = 142,322 - 133,488 - 1,899

 = 6,935 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.

(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...





Mr. Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization, who is a leader in measures against the new coronavirus in Japan, said the following about the infection situation in Osaka, where more than 1000 people are infected every day.

“Especially in Osaka, the number of people in the city has decreased considerably, so I think that (countermeasures) will definitely be effective.”



the number of people in each area on May 2nd (Sunday) yesterday was as follows compared to April 25th (Sunday) a week ago.

・Shibuya Scramble Crossing
  Daytime → 12% decrease / Nighttime → 14% increase

・Near Osaka Umeda Station
  Daytime → 10% reduction / Nighttime → unchanged
(*There was information about the area around Tokyo Station, but in the first place, Tokyo Station is excluded because it is not a place where people gather except inside the station)

Well, if it’s about 10%, it’s “almost not decreasing”, isn’t it?



Nevertheless, “the number of people in the city has decreased considerably”?

He may be looking at Japan on a different world line …



And about Osaka, there is also an article like this …

(In this state of emergency, the government has requested that restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages be closed, while restaurants that do not offer alcoholic beverages can request shortening of business hours until 20:00 = business can be done.))

It seems that some restaurants are saying “I don’t serve alcohol” but “It’s OK for customers to bring in alcohol” …


And it is said that bringing liquor to restaurants does not violate the special measures law for the new coronavirus that was created this winter …



When I heard that the Special Measures Law was enacted, I was delighted as follows.

“Finally, it can restrict people’s movements with a strong force!”


However, when it was actually made, it was a law that was almost meaningless …



By the way, the following article has been compiled quite well about the current situation in Osaka, so if you have time, please read this Yahoo! article!

Interviews with people walking in the night city of Osaka are easy to understand, easy to see, and summarized!



【特集】「感染しても後悔しない」夜の街に繰り出す“ガマンできない”人たち 公園ではノーマスクの“宴”も – Yahoo!



(* The article was so good that I didn’t have to reorganize it in this “summary article” lol)



And in relation to the law

Since May 3rd was Constitution Memorial Day yesterday, it seems that a major news agency conducted the following ridiculous questionnaire.

“Did the influence of COVID-19 deprive the people of their freedom and rights?”

“Is it necessary to amend the Constitution of Japan to comply with COVID-19?”


For the time being, the aggregated result is ↓, but …


<Questionnaire results on constitutional amendment>

①”Is it necessary to amend the constitution regarding emergencies due to infectious diseases and large-scale disasters?”
    Necessary → 57% / Unnecessary → 42%

②Did the influence of COVID-19 impair the “freedom and rights of the people” guaranteed by the Constitution?
    Yes→38% / No→55%


Certainly, the Constitution of Japan has the following description.

“All citizens are respected as individuals”(Article 13 of the Constitution)

However, on the other hand, it is also written like this

“People’s rights require the utmost respect in legislation and other national affairs, as long as they do not interfere with the public welfare (the latter half of Article 13 of the same Constitution).
(*中高生のための憲法教室 – 法学館憲法研究所)
(*公共の福祉とは?人権が制限されるパターン3つ – 政治ドットコム)



“Public welfare” is roughly “not to bother people”, so the purpose of the Constitution is “individual rights will be respected as long as they do not bother people!”


In the current “COVID-19 disaster”, there is no need to revise the Constitution of Japan and “People’s rights and freedoms” are indisputable, so all we have to do is just make a law that restricts the movement of people in accordance with the “public welfare” of the Constitution because in the crisis situation of “public welfare”, which is the risk of transmitting from person to person, becoming severe and dying, it is prioritized over individual freedom..!


However, Japanese politicians do not want to be criticized for restricting people’s actions, so they do not make strict laws on the grounds of the Constitution…




Hmmm … I don’t want to talk about politics ~~~~~~~! (T-T)







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) 614,264

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,500

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 535,495

= 68,269 people ( +382)  ← 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 …




The government has requested a railroad company to reduce the number of trains in a state of emergency, but…

After all, it seems that there was a route that returned to the normal timetable because some congestion occurred …!

(In the article, it seems that the Seibu Shinjuku Line and Haijima Line have returned to the normal timetable)


It was a strategy to reduce train schedules and make people physically immobile, but it seems that the movement of people and the movement of the company did not stop …



Well, I can’t blame the government because (it’s sorry for the railway company, but) we didn’t know the effect until they tried the measures …



Rather, if we do not limit the “movement of people” that caused congestion, the infection will eventually spread with the movement of people …right?





Please be careful when you go out!
