After all, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo this week was lower than the previous week throughout the week!




And today is Saturday, I calculated the total number of newly infected people in Tokyo for one week, but…


The result was… [4553] people!


(*Red = “Increased for 2 consecutive months” / Green = “Finally stopped increasing !?”)



(Although there are suspicions that it will be flat) I hope it will decrease in earnest next week …!




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

(Around 15:00 on May 22, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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

[292] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 49% of the total) 

[165] people is in their 40s to 50s
  (about 27% of the total)

(Individual infection information)

 ・The person in charge of the city complained, “There were some case infected by having a dinner with a friend at home instead of a restaurant. Do you need a dinner with your friend “NOW” ? Please be aware that you are under a state of emergency.”


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

Number of hospitalized :  2,273 ( -48)

Number of seriously ill :  62 ( -3)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,135 ( -3)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 825 ( -74)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 148,037 ( +631)

 *( )= 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)

 = 602 - 631  - 5

 = -34 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)

 = 156,250 - 148,037 - 2,015

 = 6,198 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)

*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!”)









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
 (And… add more) Okinawa (*5/23~6/20)

● Priority measures such as prevention of spread
 Saitama / Chiba / Kanagawa / Ehime / Okinawa / Hokkaido / Gifu / Mie
 (Addition) Ishikawa / Gunma / Kumamoto
 →Ehime will be removed on May 22nd

(* Orange = Priority measures to prevent spread / Red = State of emergency)

(*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)
(*群馬など5つの県に“まん延防止”適用方針 – Yahoo!)
(*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)



↑ is the target area of ​​the latest emergency declaration and priority measures such as prevention of spread, but Gifu was also rumored to apply the emergency declaration, but it seems that it did not enter this time.



And it seems that Ehime will be removed from the priority measures such as prevention of spread on May 22nd today.


(Infection status in Ehime)



↑After all, it seems that there were about 50 people at the maximum, and it seems that it was the correct way to use the “prevention of spread” priority measures.

It doesn’t make sense to apply it after spreading it like in Tokyo …(dry laugh)



In addition, Hokkaido seems to be in a very difficult situation.

The number of infected people has increased at all compared to Tokyo and Osaka …


(Number of infected people on May 21st yesterday)

▽東京都 (Tokyo)          155,648人  (前日+  649人)
▽大阪府 (Osaka)            97,058人  (前日+  415人)
▽北海道 (Hokkaido)        33,318人  (前日+ 727人)



Hokkaido said as follows before the state of emergency was issued.

“I want to apply it only to Sapporo City, so priority measures such as prevention of spread are good!”
(* Emergency declaration = for each prefecture, priority measures such as spread prevention = for each city)

However, the result was like this … ↓


(↑The number of infected people in each city compared to 727 people infected in Hokkaido yesterday. You can see that it spreads not only in Sapporo (427 people) but throughout Hokkaido.)



The government (government subcommittee) is correct, and it has spread throughout Hokkaido after all …



By the way, I personally thought that the re-extension of the area already subject to the state of emergency would be decided at the meeting with the state of emergency in Okinawa this weekend, but this week they will not do it for the time being…

They seem to make a decision next weekend.



But … everyone noticed …?

The date of the state of emergency in Okinawa is “May 23-June 20” …


I just feel like the period for all target areas will be until June 20th…lol



The infection situation in Japan still has a dangerous atmosphere like that, but…

Mayor Matsui of Osaka City seems to have said as follows.

“If the state of emergency is re-extended, we need to ease stricter measures (than in other areas) for department stores and cinemas.”


The infection situation in Japan is so dangerous that it will be extended again …



It seems that the reason is that “They are also taking measures against infection and there are no clusters, but…

It’s just that no one says like follows,
“Infected in a department store!”
“I got infected on my way to a department store!”,

actually, it is the same as saying as follows.

“No one say “has been infected by a crowded train!”, so the infection does not spread on a crowded train! So a crowded train is safe!”

Such a claim cannot be correct.



I think it’s more important to give enough compensation to get business suspension than to relax …



… The content has become a little longer.
There is still more content I would like to introduce, but tomorrow and the day after tomorrow will be on Saturdays and Sundays, and news on major sites will be reduced on Saturdays and Sundays, so I would like to introduce it after tomorrow!







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) 716,222

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 12,274

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 629,181

= 74,767 people ( -1,947)  ← 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 …




Two vaccines, Moderna and AstraZeneca, were officially approved yesterday!



<Vaccine effectiveness>
・ Pfizer      - 95.0%
・ AstraZeneca - 70.4%
・ Moderna   - 94.1%


With this, we have secured distribution channels other than Pfizer, so I hope that vaccination will accelerate!



By the way, although AstraZeneca’s vaccine has been approved, it will not be used for a while due to concerns about side effects.



Hmm …



I’m okay with AstraZeneca’s vaccine, can you give me a vaccine tomorrow? 🙂






Please be careful when you go out!
