I hope…. the number of newly infected people in Tokyo will not stop declining …







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

(Around 15:00 on May 28, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [614] new infections in Tokyo


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

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

[169] people is in their 40s to 50s

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

Number of seriously ill :  70 ( +1)

Hotel medical treatment : 1,065 ( -16)

Adjusting for “hospitalization or hotel or home treatment” : 748 ( -60)

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 152,231 ( +748)

 *( )= 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)

 = 614 - 748  - 6

 = -140 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)

 = 159,708 - 152,231 - 2,048

 = 5,429 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.

   (*This vaccine is provided free of charge by Pfizer)

(*独自 東京都のワクチン集団接種 来月8日から – Yahoo!)
(*五輪 大会関係者へのワクチン接種 6月20日前後から 組織委 – NHK)
(*西村経済再生相 “高齢者のワクチン接種 7月末までに全力” – NHK)


Well, what you can see from the above article is the following.

“The Olympics will be held completely”

“There is news that vaccination of the elderly will be difficult to complete at the end of July, but it’s almost certain that it will end anyway.”


I think there are pros and cons, but I’m grateful that vaccination is progressing steadily (albeit late)!




And there was an article about vaccines like this! ↓

It is no exaggeration to say that it has become a key to saving the world, but about vaccine development for the new coronavirus infection, there was an article about the story of the Hungarian scientist , Dr. Karitan Kariko, who researched and developed the underlying technology!



It describes the years when the technology underlying the current vaccine has not been evaluated at all, and the twists and turns until it finally becomes useful for the new coronavirus vaccine!



It’s not that long, so if you have time, please read it!
This is an NHK article! ↓

“革新的”研究成果がコロナワクチン開発に 女性科学者の思い – NHK




Finally, there was an article about “the origin of the virus” for the first time in a while!

After all, the theory that “originates from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China” seems to be quite influential.


This article is not a so-called “conspiracy theory”, but it is said that President Biden of the United States suggested the possibility of leakage from the institute and ordered the intelligence agency to investigate further!



I really want the origin to be investigated!

Because we really don’t want “wasting time in my life” to happen again!
(I didn’t want it to happen even once …)




But …

That means ……………?

After all President Trump was right ………?







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) 739,200

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 12,853

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 660,391

= 65,956 people ( -900)  ← 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 …




This time it seems to have happened in Ehime …

A mistake was made in vaccination again, and this time a woman in her 90s was vaccinated three times …


1st time: May 1st
2nd time: May 21st
3rd time: May 24th


It seems that he was vaccinated at the same medical institution, and the cause of the mistake seems to be that the confirmation of the medical examination slip and the interview with the person were not enough.


I think it’s just a matter of stamping the vaccination slip with the word “vaccinated” and recording it on the computer, but I really don’t understand why so many mistakes occur …



I hope that such mistakes will not “occur and eventually lead to a major life-threatening accident” …






Please be careful when you go out!
