The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has not increased dramatically this week so far …!



The impact of Golden Week should be most apparent in the number of infected people this week and next week, so if it doesn’t increase here, I feel like it will be on a downward trend …!



However, since there are more numbers than before Golden Week, it is still unclear whether it is on a downward trend or just a flat period before the rise …





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

(Around 15:00 on May 14, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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

 = (Number of positives)

   - (end of medical treatment period such as discharge)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 150,925 - 141,479 - 1,940

 = 7,506 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)

↑ It was an unprecedented event in Japan…!


I haven’t got enough information on this matter yet, so I’ll summarize it tomorrow!




There was a lot of vaccination-related news today!


In Saitama Prefecture, a male doctor who has been vaccinated twice has been infected with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) …!

The effective rate of the vaccine is a little over 90%, so about 10% will be infected, but when it comes to news like this, it makes me little nervous …


By the way … The government said that priority vaccination for the elderly would be completed by the end of July, but in reality, about 20% of local governments answered that they would not be in time by the end of July, so Prime Minister Suga said, “It’s a shock.”


The government has set only goals, and the reservation system and response are all left to the local government …

The Japanese government hasn’t done anything about the reservation system, vaccination methods, venues, or how to handle vaccines, so it’s not worth saying “shock.”


By the way, regarding the reservation system, it seems that it was possible to make duplicate vaccination reservations in Yokosuka City due to a system setting error.

Of the total number of reservations of 20,000, 1800 were duplicated …


It’s really a mystery why vaccination-related mistakes that wouldn’t normally be possible as a company occur …

Is it some kind of corruption in selecting a vendor, or is it even a friendly (insufficient) vendor?


And the government has announced that it will set up large-scale vaccination venues in Tokyo and Osaka, but it seems that the government has decided to consider supporting the movement to the venue at the suggestion of the opposition party …!


Since Tokyo and Osaka also have a large area, it may take an hour for some people to move, and they are exposed to the risk of infection while moving, so it is natural to support them.


But … what kind of “support” does the government provide? ??

I wonder if it will create a crowded space with a large private bus …?

You wouldn’t say “free public transportation” …?

I’m looking forward to “a perfect support method for infection control” …!



Also, regarding vaccination-related matters, there was also some news that it is making it a bit lawless because the government hasn’t decided too much on vaccination…



And in Anjo City, Aichi Prefecture, a 66-year-old man was was angry and was arrested for breaking the glass of the automatic door because he was refused a vaccination reservation due to no history of going to the hospital and was offered a mass vaccination by the city.


I understand his feelings, but violence is no good …



It was discovered that the 62-year-old mayor of Kamikawa Town, Hyogo Prefecture, was secretly vaccinated using the waiting frame for the priority vaccination vaccine for people aged 65 and over.


They said that “if there is a cancellation amount, the vaccine will be discarded”, but in the first place, it is strange to discard the cancellation amount, and it’s unfair if they don’t decide the rules and order about the waiting list for cancellation, right?


I think the government should decide on such rules as well …



On the other hand, in Yorii Town, Saitama Prefecture, it was discovered that not only the mayor (76) but also the deputy mayor and the superintendent of education, as well as about 100 out of 257 staff members of town, were vaccinated …


Moreover, they were vaccinated as “medical workers” involved in the mass vaccination
(* The government may only recognize “people who perform medical examinations and vaccinations directly at the venue” as medical professionals.)


I understand a little, but it seems like there is a sense of lawlessness or a “privileged class frame”.



Well … it’s difficult because it’s true that we can’t laugh at “outbreaks at the vaccination site” …




The above is a summary of today’s COVID-19 related news, but what they have in common is that “the government has not decided any rules and methods in detail, and also has not provided the system to the local government.”



In the case of a general company, it is a proof of a competent employee that “the president decides only the goal and the subordinates respond to everything from the method and achieve it”, but regarding vaccination, politics and administration do it, not the general company. Moreover, that involves “life”



I feel that the COVID-19 disaster has highlighted all the bad things about Japan …



Is that okay? Japanese …!







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) 673,821

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 11,396

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 580,105

= 82,320 people ( +644)  ← 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 …




In a report released by WHO (= World Health Organization) on May 12, they criticized China for losing valuable time due to the delay in the initial response to COVID-19 …!

In addition, the report criticizes that “many countries other than China have taken a wait-and-see attitude without taking active measures to contain infection.”


Even though WHO initially said that “masks don’t make sense” and “China acted correctly and swiftly”


However, it is also true that the recent WHO criticized China’s response when visiting China to identify the source of infection, and then they commented that China was likely to be the source of infection, so recently WHO looked relatively decent …



WHO … You really … have changed …?

Can I believe in you … again …?







“ “many countries other than China have taken a wait-and-see attitude without taking active measures to contain infection.” 


…… Japan … are you listening …? It’s you …!



You should face COVID-19 a little more seriously!






Please be careful when you go out!
