The number of newly infected people in Tokyo is already close to 1000 even though it is still Tuesday…



Last week was during the Golden Week holidays, so it’s strange,
(Probably because the number of tests was much less than usual due to consecutive holidays)
but today’s numbers are still higher than they were two weeks ago …





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

(Around 15:00 on May 11, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [925] new infections in Tokyo


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

[425] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 46% of the total) 

[258] people is in their 40s to 50s
  (about 28% of the total)

   *( )= Number of the previous day


(Individual infection information)

 ・ Multiple infections such as drinking parties and BBQ infections have been reported, so it seems that the effects of GW holidays are beginning to appear.


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

Number of hospitalized :  2,393 ( +47)

Number of seriously ill :  81 ( +3)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,160 (59)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 1,422 ( +63)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 139,000 ( +930)

 *( )= 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)

 = 925 - 930  - 3

 = -8 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)

 = 148,092 - 139,000 - 1,923

 = 7,169 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.

*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 …)

*The green line is the highest number of infected people in Japan.


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)









If you open the news site every day, “The number of infected people in India is more than 400,000 today!”, And even in the quarantine at the airport, “There are many immigrants from India today!”, as such, there is a great deal of news related to India in Japan these days.


By the way, the current infection situation in India looks like this …! ↓




The wave on the ← side (around August last year) was reported every day that “India’s number of infected people per day has reached about 80,000, which is the highest in the world!”, but

(*インド、1日で7.8万人が新型ウイルスに感染 世界最多を更新 – BBC NEWS)

Looking at the graph, the number of infected people these days is so huge that it cannot be compared with that time …

It’s more than four times as much as it was reported in August …


In the world, the infection situation is still serious like that …



Even in Japan, the situation is getting worse, and it seems that many local governments are applying to the government for the application of “priority measures such as prevention of spread” …!

Kumamoto, Fukushima, Okayama, Nagasaki, Miyazaki, etc. are moving toward the application …


By the way, the government seems to say, “I would like to see the effects of the measures already implemented by each local government and take appropriate measures.”


Rather … It is better to determine whether “priority measures such as prevention of spread” are meaningful.




And there was also such an article!

It is often news that “large-scale vaccination venues” will be created in Tokyo and Osaka, but Saitama will also create large-scale vaccination venues!


It seems that it will be installed at the “Urawa Joint Government Building in Saitama Prefecture” from June 1st to the end of July.


The goal is to have a maximum of 700 people a day and a total of 21,000 people during the period …


If the municipality uses a large venue, I think people could get more vaccinations …



In terms of vaccination, in Oita City, Oita Prefecture …

It seems that vaccination reservation acceptance started yesterday (May 10), but since there are times when the distribution amount and schedule of vaccines are not shown, it seems that some hospitals ask the person who made the reservation to draw a lottery to decide the order …



It seems that each local government and each hospital is thinking about various things, but it’s really strange why the Japanese government does not uniformly decide the order and rules of vaccination …



Some have a telephone reservation system on a first-come, first-served basis, while others have a lottery …

I think it’s really stupid to let people compete with each other when people’s lives are at stake …



The government office will hand out the vaccination ticket, and the person who is handed out will make a reservation call

↑Why not that way ?! Is it so annoying for you(government)?!

I think…




Finally … I won’t summarize it here, but there was a conspiracy theory for the first time in a while! lol

If you are interested, please see the link above!





Well, I don’t care about conspiracy theory (lol), but… 

Anyway, I hope this week will end without the infection spreading too much …!







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) 653,647

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 11,108

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 564,787

= 77,752 people ( +1,547)  ← 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 …




It seems that thousands of people gathered for a large no-mask party on May 1st in Belgium …!


(*Riot police break up illegal party in Brussels park using tear gas and water cannon – youtube)


↑ It’s surprisingly many …


They didn’t follow the police’s instructions to “dissolve”, so the police used tear gas and water cannons …



Anyway …

This “no mask, large-scale party without self-restraint” is similar to the Japanese 「GW BBQ party, the crowds in the city」 …



The Japanese police and government seem to be kind … (dry laugh)



I hope that the spread of the infection will stop before that happens …






Please be careful when you go out!
