The number of new infections in Tokyo was still lower than last week, but it looks like it will stop declining, so it’s scary …


(* Is the decrease becoming a little slower?)




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

(Around 15:00 on May 26, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [743] new infections in Tokyo


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

[333] people is in their 20s to 30s
  (about 45% of the total) 

[207] people is in their 40s to 50s
  (about 28% of the total)

     *under10 : [26] persons

 ・ I couldn’t confirm the information today …


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

Number of hospitalized :  2,182 ( -15)

Number of seriously ill :  70 ( -1)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,052 ( -22)

Home medical treatment :  1,395 ( -25)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 871 ( +195)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 150,879 ( +605)

 *( )= 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)

 = 743 - 605  - 5

 = +133 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)

 = 158,410 - 150,879 - 2,031

 = 5,500 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)

(*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 Kobe City also started its own “large-scale vaccination” from yesterday!



Speaking of which, there is news about vaccination

It seems that a member of parliament said as follows.

“It is strange for crisis management that the Diet members who are having important discussions are not vaccinated.”

“It’s very strange that parliamentarians can’t vaccinate because of fear of public opinion.”



No … you guys haven’t decided a big deal anyway!

I’m not the only one who thought that… lol



Former Osaka Prefectural Toru Hashimoto also said, “Politicians who make various important decisions should be vaccinated first.”

However, in order to show the public the following example, I would like politicians to refrain from going out etc. and prevent infection without vaccination!

“By refraining from going out etc., you can actually prevent infection without vaccination.”



Because politicians, if vaccinated, just go out to the city at night …



The current situation is that Japanese politicians are so stupid,
but in the neighboring country of Taiwan

In consideration of the recent spread of infection, the Taiwanese government has abandoned the dispatch of Taiwanese professional baseball players to the Olympics.

Also, it seems that the final qualifying for the Olympic Games, which was scheduled to be held in Taiwan, was declined and changed to Mexico.


As a result, Taiwan is considering forming a national team centered on amateur players to participate in the qualifying.



This sense of crisis is “correct crisis management” and “the ideal form of a correct politician.”



Is Japan listening?… That’s what you have to learn…





By the way, the host country Japan seems to be given preferential treatment,

Pfizer seems to provide Japan with vaccines for 20,000 people free of charge for the Japanese team and tournament officials.


That means … If you can volunteer to get involved in the Olympics, you can get vaccinated faster!?


…… Yes, I’m sorry I was thinking about something bad now (dry laugh)



By the way, there was also such news about this Pfizer vaccine!

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare seems to have a policy to reduce the target age of Pfizer’s vaccine from “16 years old and over” to “12 years old and over”!

It seems that it has already been lowered in the United States and other countries!



In that way, clinical trials and research are progressing steadily at this moment, and the following research results have been obtained.

Such as the discovery of “antibodies that are more likely to become severe” at Osaka University,
it seems that researchers are really working hard to overcome the new coronavirus, 
(* There was an image that antibody = “neutralizing antibody” that makes it difficult to infect in the body, but this antibody seems to be an antibody that makes it easier to infect.)




There are many people who are doing their best in the field of research and medical care, and many people are continuing to refrain from going out etc., so I hope that other people will cooperate as much as possible …!







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) 731,358

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 12,640

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 650,770

= 650,770 people ( -540)  ← 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 …




Well, today is in the middle of the week, but even Kyoto seems to be planning to re-extend the state of emergency …!

The reason for the expression “even Kyoto” is that there are many days when the number of infected people is 100 or less.


(Infection situation in Kyoto)




Even though Kyoto is an extension, it is natural that Tokyo and Osaka will be extended …!




If the infection can be suppressed firmly, it can be released quickly and you can play comfortably early! And you can also go drinking!



↑ This is similar to our childhood “You can go play when you finish your homework. So let’s finish your homework soon.” … (dry laugh)



Well, we want to be a little older! lol






Please be careful when you go out!
