As for the number of newly infected people in Tokyo and the number of people infected in each prefecture, the number of infected people announced today is small (among the recent infection situation) due to the next day of the Golden Week holidays …!




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

(Around 15:00 on May 06, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [591] new infections in Tokyo


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

[273] people is in their 20s to 30s

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

Number of seriously ill :  72 ( +3)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 134,661 ( +528)

 *( )= 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)

 = 591 - 528  - 4

 = +59 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)

 = 143,534 - 134,661 - 1,903

 = 6,970 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).

*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...






By the way, the long holidays of Golden Week are finally over!

I never thought I would be forced to refrain from going out so for the second year in a row …!



But … it seems that there were many people who didn’t refrain from doing so …


(* Amount of people at Shibuya Scramble Crossing in Tokyo from May 3rd to May 5th / 15:00)



There are the following trends in the infection situation in Japan, but the number of tests in Tokyo decreased sharply as expected in this GW as well …!

“Since medical institutions are closed during consecutive holidays, the number of tests will decrease sharply, so the number of infected people announced during and immediately after consecutive holidays will also decrease.”



(The number of PCR tests in Tokyo, obviously this GW has a small number of tests)

(*都内の最新感染動向 – 東京都)



For that reason, I’m worried that the number of infected people during the Golden Week holidays did not decrease too much …


(Although the number of tests has decreased to 1/3 to 1/4 of the usual number, the number of infected people has decreased to only about 2/3 of the previous week … ???)



There are various possible reasons, but I will refrain from speaking because it does not exceed the expected range …


Since the number of infected people did not decrease sharply during the Golden Week holidays, I’m even more scared of the first or second week after the Golden Week holidays …!

(Because the number of infected people will be affected after consecutive holidays and 1 to 2 weeks after the event)



And again, as expected … the government seems to extend the state of emergency after all …

It seems that the government is adjusting the period from two weeks to one month.

It will be announced around May 7th.



Originally it was a period of emergency declaration that was completely meaningless, so it is natural to extend it, but…

“If the number dropped more than expected during the Golden Week holidays, the government would have lifted the state of emergency on May 11 as planned, without seeing the situation for a week or two after the Golden Week holidays !?”

Thinking that way … it’s horrifying …!



Well … what will really happen in the next week or two …

I hope our expectations are wrong and the number of infected people will drop sharply …!







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) 622,697

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,625

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 543,228

= 68,844 people ( +675)  ← 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 …




Since there was little news yesterday and today, I summarized the number of tests and the number of infected people during the GW holidays, but in such a situation, Governor Koike of Tokyo seems to be carefree …!

Today, I introduced in the photo (state of the scrambled intersection) above that the number of people has not decreased for the past three days, but Governor Koike said as follows.


Governor of Tokyo Koike
“Today (May 5) is the last day of the Golden Week holidays, but also it is an important period to stop the flow of people from tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.”
“I want you to have a period so that you will not be infected and you will not infect others after tomorrow.”


Even though she saw the number of people in the city not decreasing during Golden Week, she did not take any new measures, but just repeated the same words like “automatic calling machine” …!



Even in such a situation, not only those who refrain from going out, but also those who can not refrain from going out, anyway, I hate such a cramped life …, right?



I would like to set a deadline, take measures and restrict going out, suppress the infection, and then go out to play freely. Don’t you think so?





Please be careful when you go out!
