The number of newly infected people in Tokyo is … According to the theory so far, it was said that the effect of consecutive holidays will affect the number of infected people one to two weeks later, but it is already affected at the third day after the consecutive holidays. It’s been a terrifying situation, the highest number ever since the wave …


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


The result was … [5436] people!


(Green: Golden Week holidays / Gray: Day after the holidays / Red: “Despite the long holidays, the total weekly total was almost the same as last week.”)


It was a week that included a long holiday, so the number of infected people should have dropped sharply, but … the result was almost the same as last week …



Next week is going to be a serious situation ……………




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

(Around 15:00 on May 08, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

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...






First of all today … About the “extension of the state of emergency” announced yesterday …!


<State of emergency (extension)>


・Target area - Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto
            +Fukuoka / Aichi (12th ~)
・Period      - April 25th to May 11th
           →Extended until May 31st


(Area of ​​emergency declaration)



Relaxation - ①Large commercial facility (request for closure)
              →Change by 20:00 request for shortening business hours
             ②Event held (no audience)
              →Audience admission is possible with restrictions (until 21:00)



Strictness   -  ①Request for closure to restaurants
                →Request for closure of restaurants where you can bring in alcohol
                ②Street drinking, group drinking, etc.
                →To request self-restraint based on the law




The government says ↑, but the actual movement of each local government is as follows.


Tokyo / Osaka
 →Continue to request closure from department stores
 →Continue to request that the event be held without spectators
 →Continue to request closures from department stores on Saturdays and Sundays
 →Request to the department store to shorten business hours to 19:00 only on Saturdays and Sundays


As mentioned above, it seems that many local governments will continue to respond without complying with the government.



However … It seems that many department stores in Tokyo are expanding their business reopening floors at their own discretion as shown below …

“Clothing is a daily necessities, isn’t it?”
“Miscellaneous goods are daily necessities, aren’t they?”
(Sales of daily necessities are allowed even during the state of emergency)



Even though they are trying to survive so as not to go bankrupt, companies do not seem to obey the state of emergency, and the general public does not refrain from going out, so it is difficult for us to understand what is an “emergency situation”.



But politicians aren’t starting discussions in parliament about legislative amendments and measures right now …



However, the Liberal Democratic Party, which is the ruling party of the government, seems to be considering the dissolution of the House of Representatives and the general election by the end of September, so until then, they don’t want to get the antipathy of the “majority” of the people and the support-based industry groups, so they may not want to make revisions or take strict measures against infectious diseases …
(*菅首相 衆院解散・総選挙「9月末までには」 – NHK)



By the way, Chairman Omi of the government subcommittee said at the press conference as follows.

①The state of emergency should not be canceled immediately because the number of infected people has stopped declining, but should be waited for a few weeks after the number of infected people has stopped declining.
②Measures are required until vaccination is widespread.
③It is necessary to strengthen communication with young people.

Hmm … Everything is just saying the obvious things …



In addition, Governor Koike of Tokyo said the following about the extension of this state of emergency …

The government told me to say it more strongly, so I’ll make you say it strongly. Young people, please don’t go out to play.”

→She just said it because the government told her to say it …

She doesn’t understand that she’s the one taking measures …



I’m not sure what the “emergency situation” is anymore, but there will be no noticeable events until the summer, and probably after the number of infected people has increased dramatically for a week or two (due to the Golden Week holidays), the infection situation seems to settle down slowly, so that’s the only hope.



Well … the flow of the infection situation has nothing to do with “countermeasures in the state of emergency”, it’s just a seasonal natural flow …



In anticipation of that, the government may be aiming to extend the state of emergency and appeal, “See! Our measures were effective !”


For the time being, today’s article was “Summary of the extension of the state of emergency” …!







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) 635,993

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 10,859

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 551,952

= 73,182 people ( +1,907)  ← 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 were a lot of articles I would like to introduce today, but the extension of the state of emergency has made it longer than I expected, so I will carry it over tomorrow …
(The amount of news will decrease on Saturdays and Sundays …)


Oh, by the way, the target area of ​​”Priority measures such as spread prevention” will change a little!



(Target area for priority measures such as prevention of spread)




Anyway, first of all, I think that the number of infected people will increase dramatically in the next 1-2 weeks, so it should be noted where will it stop.



Ah ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s too scary! !! !! (cry)





Please be careful when you go out!
