The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has exceeded 1,000, but it seems that the infection has not exploded yet because it is a time when the effects of consecutive holidays may have already come out.



However, that is just “when you look at the changes in the numbers up to today this week” …

I hope it will level off as it is.




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

(Around 15:00 on May 13, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [1010] new infections in Tokyo

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 140,796 ( +890)

Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of people who completed medical treatment)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 1,010 - 890  - 7

 = +113 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)

 = 150,071 - 140,796 - 1,938

 = 7,337 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.

*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!”)










I forgot, but

the state of emergency was extended from yesterday …!

Even if I saw the crowds in the city, no one listened to what the government said, and no one obeyed, so I completely forgot … (dry laugh)


Areas subject to “Emergency declaration” and “Priority measures such as prevention of spread”
  (* As of May 13)

●State of emergency (* until March 31)
 (Extension) Tokyo / Osaka / Hyogo / Kyoto
 (Addition) Aichi / Fukuoka
● Priority measures such as prevention of spread
 Saitama / Chiba / Kanagawa / Ehime / Okinawa / Hokkaido / Gifu / Mie

緊急事態宣言 6都府県に拡大 “まん延防止”は8道県に拡大 – NHK


It seems that other prefectures are also considering priority measures such as prevention of spread, but in today’s news, Gunma has newly requested the government to apply it.

(*群馬県 “まん延防止”適用を要請 感染者急増に歯止めかからず – NHK)


(Infection status in Gunma prefecture)





And today there was a lot of Olympic news!

In order to secure doctors for the Tokyo Olympics, the government recruited 200 people as unpaid volunteers, and it seems that 280 people applied …!


I’m often surprised to live in Tokyo, but the Olympics seem to be more special among the people than I think…!



However, the situation does not seem to be very good not only in Japan but also overseas …


・ Russia Gymnastics Team
  → Canceled advance training camp in Kamo City, Niigata Prefecture
・ Australia Swimming Team
  → Canceled advance training camp in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture
・ Australia Judo Team
  → Canceled advance training camp in Saitama Prefecture
・ Iran / Judo team
  → Canceled advance training camp in Soja City, Okayama Prefecture
・ Portugal Judo Team
  → Scheduled to cancel the preliminary training camp in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture
・ Taiwan Karate Team
  → Scheduled to cancel the preliminary training camp in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture
・ Mongolian Karate Team
  → Canceled advance training camp in Shirosato Town, Ibaraki Prefecture
・ American track and field team
  → Canceled advance training camp in Chiba prefecture


Even if I know it, the above cancellation has already been decided …

By the way, the reason for the cancellation is as follows.
 ”We want to cancel the training camp and go directly to the venue”
 ”We don’t know if we can go to Japan in the first place”



And at the pre-Olympic Games, it seems that there was such a low level of service support

It seems that these were the ones provided at the facility while overseas athletes and related parties could not go out much due to infectious disease countermeasures … ↓



Whether or not we do the Olympics, I want the government to provide the best service to athletes and people involved in this COVID-19 disaster …


Providing instant foods to overseas guests and athletes is too strange.


In the first place, the “quality” of food has nothing to do with COVID-19 …


It was really the worst …

For more information, please read the link above …



And there was such an article about the Olympics.

Governor Oikawa of Ibaraki Prefecture said that he refused to give priority to athletes because he was told by the Olympic Organizing Committee that they would like to have a bed exclusively for Olympic athletes.


Even in Japan, the medical care provision system is tight, and I understand that he said “it is strange to prioritize athletes over the people and citizens of the prefecture!”, but…



“Then what are you going to do with our important guests from overseas?”



I think like that.


It’s a difficult humanitarian issue, but if it’s held, I think it’s natural to give the utmost respect to those who come from abroad …




Today, the topic has been centered around the Olympics, but it seems that a person in his twenties who has no underlying disease has finally died in the domestic infection situation.

He seems to be a man in his twenties in Kyoto City, and they couldn’t find a hospital, they lost contact with him during home recuperation and he was found dead at home …



The new coronavirus has been mutated, and all adults over the age of 20 are at risk of dying, but I hope that the public should be careful about infectious disease control as much as possible. ..







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) 667,563

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 11,315

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 574,572

= 81,676 people ( +1,407)  ← 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 …




Speaking of which, there was a lot of noise about mutant strains, “The vaccine may not work for variant strains!”, but

according to a study by Yokohama City University, Pfizer’s vaccine seems to be effective for variant strains as well!


(*←% is the effective rate after the first vaccination, →% is the effective rate after the second vaccination)
(The red letters are the type of variant strain, which indicates that all mutant strains are more than 90% effective.)


It’s safe for the variant strains currently found (whether the vaccine works)!


However, it seems that 960 doses of vaccine have been wasted due to mishandling of the essential vaccine

Due to a miscommunication between the delivery staff, the staff at the vaccination site, and the staff of the city, the timing of taking it out of the cold box was wrong, and it was left at room temperature for about 3 hours …
(*This vaccine must be used within 2 hours)


There are only childish mistakes in Japan regarding the handling of vaccines.



Only vaccines can improve the infection situation in Japan, so I would like them to handle it a little more properly …



Even though some people always criticizes infectious disease control with a strong tone, he is participating in political fund dinners, 

(*医師会長“全国に宣言検討を” 政治資金パーティー出席は陳謝 – NHK)


so… the Japanese people these days are a little strange …? !!



I hope it isn’t …!






Please be careful when you go out!
