The number of newly infected people in Tokyo and the number of infected people nationwide were strangely small today …!


The number of infected people is always the lowest on Mondays of the week, but even so, the decrease seems to be too abnormal …


But I hope it keeps decreasing!




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

(Around 15:00 on May 24, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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

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)

*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).

Today is the topic of “waterfront measures”!


Regarding the variant stain in India, which is said to be more than twice as infectious as the conventional new coronavirus (COVID-19)

According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the variant virus in India was confirmed in as many as 160 people in Japan between March 28 and May 17


Hmm …


Although I feel that there are many, 160 people in about 2 months …

I’m not sure if it’s more or less …



So I checked the number of people who were positive for quarantine at the airport during that period …!


The result was … [545] people …!



** I’m sorry, but the source is not a government page that has been converted into data firmly, so it  is from my Excel data that summarizes the data I introduce every day.


Since 160 out of 545 people, you can see that about 30% are infected with Indian variants by simple calculation …

This is too much …
(*There should be some samples still under analysis, so it seems that there are actually more …)



And at that airport, immigrants have to wait at government-designated accommodations for a certain period of time after entering the country, but recently only entry from three countries such as India has been extended from the conventional three days to six days…, however, I feel that it is still not enough …

According to Mr. Omi, chairman of the government subcommittee, “Ideal is 6 to 14 days, but there are some physical difficulties.



“some physical difficulties”…?



What do you think it is …?



It’s just that there aren’t enough accommodations to wait …
(*インドなどからの入国者 待機期間10日間に延長へ 水際対策強化 -NHK)
It seems that the government plans to extend the period to 10 days, but will it be secured at a new facility?



Instead of “shortening the quarantine period because it’s not enough”,
“limit the number of immigrants because it’s not enough”! (Angry)



That’s how I think.



By the way, the current situation seems that 

“foreigners who stayed in India within 2 weeks before entering Japan are basically denied entry even if they have a status of residence”.


Does that mean …?

For example, regarding to the yellow part of the list of positives found in yesterday’s airport quarantine…


(Positive person in airport quarantine on May 23)

*From the website of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare


It means that current immigrants from India are all Japanese …



After the six days of quarantine at the airport, there will be a waiting period at home for 14 days, but currently there are 20,000 people monitored daily, of which 300 are violators …
( *「水際対策」これで大丈夫? “待機違反”1日最大300人 – FNN)
(*Number of people who do not report location information, people who are away from home)



Of course, I think the remaining 19,700 people are waiting at home, but only 300 of them are spreading variant strains (like the indian variant etc.) in Japan.





Today I’ve summarized the current state of quarantine at such airports!


The government uses the cool word “countermeasures at the water’s edge”, but in reality it is a literal “colander” that has not stopped the entry of viruses from overseas at all, so I really want them to do something about it. …!


And we must not forget that “the Japanese government’s measures are just too bad, and there is nothing wrong with other countries.”




*By the way, there was an easy-to-understand article about the actual situation of quarantine violators after returning to Japan, so if you have time, please read it!

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) 722,938

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 12,420

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 640,546

= 69,972 people ( -3,199)  ← 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 …




Vaccination at large-scale vaccination venues has finally begun in Japan!

The venue looks like this! ↓



↑Is it a waiting place?

Because it doesn’t take much time to get vaccinated…


↑It seems that it is partitioned properly.



It was a venue like above!



State Minister of Defense Nakayama, who visited the venue in Osaka, said, “Please come with a half sleeve to get a smooth vaccination!”, but…



We need to come with half-sleeved ………..?



It’s OK to just put our arms out before entering the vaccination booth at the venue …, right?



In the neighboring country, Taiwan, there are super-competent IT ministers, but the degree of Japanese ministers is really low………    🙁






Please be careful when you go out!
