This week is the second week since the Golden Week holidays, but the number of newly infected people in Tokyo has not increased more than expected, but rather it has been lower than last week …!



Looking at past trends, in Japan there is a tendency for the second week after consecutive holidays to be a “stagnation period”, so it would be nice if next week (the third week ) begins to decline steadily.




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

(Around 15:00 on May 21, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [649] new infections in Tokyo

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 147,406 ( +857)

 *( )= increase  from the day before


Net increase in infected people in Tokyo

 = (Number of new infections)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 649 - 857  - 13

 = -221 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)

 = 155,648 - 147,406 - 2,010

 = 6,232 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)

Areas subject to “Emergency declaration” and “Priority measures such as prevention of spread”
  (* As of May 15)

●State of emergency (* until March 31)
 (Extension) Tokyo / Osaka / Hyogo / Kyoto
 (Addition) Aichi / Fukuoka
 (Add more) Hokkaido / Okayama / Hiroshima

● Priority measures such as prevention of spread
 Saitama / Chiba / Kanagawa / Ehime / Okinawa / Hokkaido / Gifu / Mie
 (Addition) Ishikawa / Gunma / Kumamoto

*In addition, Gifu is also considering requesting a state of emergency.
 (*岐阜県が緊急事態宣言要請へ 知事「対象の県と同様の水準」 – Yahoo!)




Today, I’ll start with the important breaking news first!


①(沖縄県に「緊急事態宣言」 23日から来月20日まで 政府が決定 – NHK

 ↑A state of emergency has been declared in Okinawa!
  Unlike other areas, the period is from May 23rd to June 20th!

②(沖縄県に「緊急事態宣言」 23日から来月20日まで 政府が決定 – NHK

 ↑It seems that Ehime will be removed from the target of priority measures such as prevention of spread on May 22nd tomorrow!

③(モデルナとアストラゼネカのワクチン 正式承認 厚労省- NHK)

 ↑It seems that the Moderna vaccine and the AstraZeneca vaccine have finally been approved in Japan!
  (* It seems that AstraZeneca vaccine will not be used for the time being due to concerns about side effects …)


The government is still in the middle of various press conferences (as of 20:00), so I’ll summarize the details tomorrow!




Let’s get back to the usual topic …


It seems that Chiba Prefecture has announced that it will start a business to issue stickers to restaurants that meet Chiba Prefecture’s own infection control standards from May 27th!

Eventually, it seems that the purpose is to remove the certified restaurants from the request for shortening business hours, and it seems that this model business will be started from Chiba City in coordination with the national government.


And it seems that there are 59 standards created by the prefecture, and 47 of them must be met


Ah … you don’t have to meet everything …
I think all the items should be met…


Specifically, it seems that the following are included.

・Suppress carbon dioxide concentration to 1000ppm or less
・Store customer’s personal information for at least 2 weeks



I feel that it is unreliable the standard that set by a country where the spread of infection cannot be suppressed, but the government seems to want to reopen restaurants, so I hope it will be a meaningful policy.



That is the sad situation in Japan, but in Taiwan, which has a solid track record, it seems that the super talented genius IT minister has developed a ridiculous system again …! !! !!

It seems that they have developed a system that allows the government to manage personal information without passing it to the restaurant by simply reading the QR code when entering the restaurant!

Moreover, because it is managed by the government, it seems easy to identify rich contacts!




Just read the QR code in front of the restaurant and send a short message to the government’s infection control hotline, and it will be deleted after 28 days of storage.


(*Taiwan’s genius IT Minister, Audrey Tang)


In the first place, if personal information is managed for each restaurant as in Japan, it can only deal with clusters generated at that restaurant.

And we’re afraid of leaking personal information …


It’s scary to pass personal information to the Japanese government instead of the Taiwanese government in the first place, but … (dry laugh)


By the way, Minister Audrey Tang made this system in just 3 days!



I want Mr. Tan to do the Japanese minister too … lol




On a different topic, there was super good news about Pfizer’s vaccine!

Until now, this vaccine had been shipped frozen, thawed at the vaccination site, and then it can be stored at 2 ° C to 8 ° C for 5 days, but the US Food and Drug Administration (= FDA) has announced that it can be stored for up to a month!



In Japan, there seems to be a lot of vaccine disposal due to cancellation, so I am really happy that it will be possible to store it for 30 days and the disposal will be reduced!

And also it will be possible to store it for a long time even in a small clinic!



Wow… What the best news it is!








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) 711,183

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 12,190

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 622,267

= 76,726 people ( -1,146)  ← 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!
