The number of newly infected people in Tokyo continues to be lower than last week …!

↑ I wrote the same thing yesterday, but it’s been like this this week!



But … I’m worried that the number of infected people is still high …




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

(Around 15:00 on May 20, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [843] new infections in Tokyo


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

[420 people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 50% of the total)

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

Number of seriously ill :  73 ( -8)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 145,819 ( +943)

 *( )= 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)

 = 843 - 730  - 13

 = +100 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)

 = 154,999 - 146,549 - 1,997

 = 6,453 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.

The news of Taiwan is reported every day in Japan, but
(The spread of infection suddenly started a few days ago)

it seems that Taiwan will ban foreigners from entering the country for a month as early as possible!


However, it seems that foreigners with permanent residency are OK, and Taiwanese are OK, so it looks the same as “Japan’s border measures”.

After all, is “complete blockade” difficult in the world?





And while there are daily news reports of an unusual amount of mistakes in the domestic vaccination, today there were two news stories about mistakes that should never be made …

In Kobe City, a mistake was made in injecting with an “empty syringe” and air got into the blood vessels …

It is said that there is no health problem because the amount of air that enters is 0.3 ml, but it is a life-threatening mistake, isn’t it?

Also, in Nara City, they used a used syringe for another person …

This is such a big deal that it really has to be big news …

To be honest, I was trembling when I saw this news …


The fundamental reason why Japanese people are negative about vaccination is because of the following events.

In the 1940s, “reuse of syringes caused hepatitis B infection in 450,000 people.”
(*国は実態を把握していながら放置し続け、最終的にB型肝炎感染者数45万人という甚大な被害を生じさせた – 全国B型肝炎訴訟北海道弁護団)


This news is doing exactly the same thing …


However, it seems that the topic is being neglected by the public, as the Japanese have forgotten the root cause of their dislike of vaccination …



By the way, regarding vaccination reservations at large-scale vaccination venues,

I mentioned the other day that reservations were closed in Osaka only 25 minutes after the reservation started, but it seems that the venue in Tokyo was also closed at 9 pm the day after the reservation started …


Ministry of Defense
“In Japan, we have a sufficient amount of vaccine, so please make a reservation without hassle.”

↑↑ Don’t be silly…



By the way, regarding the Ministry of Defense…,

the Asahi Shimbun and Mainichi Shimbun made an article trying that “you can make a vaccination reservation at a large-scale vaccination site even with a fictitious vaccination ticket number”, but the Ministry of Defense protested, “If you make a false reservation, you will deprive other people of the opportunity to vaccinate.”


You have only one thing to say, right?


Hey … Ministry of Defense … If you have time to make such a protest, fix the system as soon as possible so that people can’t make a reservation with a fictitious number …


(dry laugh)





Last but not least, this week’s Tokyo has had a much lower number of infected people than last week!


(*Current infection situation in Tokyo)


The streets are full of voices saying, “The peak has already passed!”, But I personally feel that the decrease is less than I expected, and I’m still a little skeptical …


Professor Nishiura of Kyoto University, who specializes in analysis using mathematical models, also seems to say, “I can’t say whether it will really go down or increase again if I don’t look at it a little more.”
(*東京都の緊急事態宣言 専門家「5月末の解除は厳しいのでは」 – NHK)





(* Red = Japan’s year-end and New Year holidays)


As shown in the figure above, it peaks in the week (1 week later) following the consecutive holidays (year-end and New Year holidays), stays high the next week (2 weeks later), and begins to decrease from the green frame = 3 weeks after the year-end and New Year holidays.



Applying that to this GW, it’s the week two weeks after the GW now!

So now, “this week is a remain high week” …


Will it start to decrease from next week?

I hope so!







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) 705,933

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 12,078

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 615,983

= 77,872 people ( -628)  ← 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 the open space in front of Takadanobaba Station in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo, the administration seems to have finally started to exercise its abilities because drinking on the street does not stop no matter how many times you pay attention to the crowd …

It seems that the Shinjuku government surrounded the square with a barricade and physically prevented it from entering …



I’m a little tired of people who can’t understand without doing that …


And …
People only have that kind of feeling, so even if the government just “calls”, there is no reason to refrain from going out.



The number of infected people in Tokyo and Osaka is decreasing, so if it is reduced in the future, it will only be a solution just in front of useven if COVID-19 is resolved, I’m really scary in the future because there are people with such sensibilities…





Please be careful when you go out!
