 = +61 people


Estimated total number of infected people in Tokyo as of today

 = (Number of positives)

   - (Number of deaths)

 = 3,463 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).

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

*Currently, Japan is refusing to enter from India, Nepal, and Pakistan in principle as a countermeasure against Indian variant stain.


*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)





And also today, I will summarize some prefectures that have a high number of infected people, not just in the Tokyo area.

*** Chiba ***

(Individual infection information)

  *Today as well, I could not confirm the cluster information only with the variant strain / death information …
   (I don’t think there is a reason why clusters will not occur …)


 * Currently, in Chiba, cluster information is not coming out much again …
   (I have the impression that they haven’t given much information since autumn)

      *Among the infected people counted today, there are [11] cluster relationships, including the above… (Other than the above, addor less each)


     * In Hokkaido, outbreaks are rarely known on the day of the outbreak, and since it will be revealed and announced the next day or later, the cumulative number of people will be announced instead of the number on the day of the outbreak.




◆◆◆ Hyogo ◆◆◆

 ・ I couldn’t confirm the information today …




◆◆◆ Kyoto ◆◆◆

New infections are [17] person(s)

*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)→Extended by June 20
 Tokyo / Osaka / Hyogo / Kyoto / Aichi / Fukuoka
 Hokkaido / Okayama / Hiroshima
 (And… add more) Okinawa (*5/23~6/20)

● Priority measures such as prevention of spread
 Saitama / Chiba / Kanagawa / Ehime / Gifu / Mie
 Ishikawa / Gunma / Kumamoto→(3 prefectures) Scheduled for early cancellation
 →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)
9都道府県の緊急事態宣言 来月20日まで延長を決定 政府 – NHK
【随時更新】菅首相会見「警戒すべきは変異株の影響」 – NHK




The deadline for declaring an emergency is June 20, but information is beginning to appear one after another.

Since June 20th is the next Sunday, I think that information will be available tomorrow, June 18th (Friday), which is this weekend, but the following is a rough summary of the information so far.


①Okinawa continues to declare a state of emergency

②Cancellation of the state of emergency in the other 9 areas
  *However, only shift to priority measures such as prevention of spread

③Requests for post-cancellation measures (priority measures such as prevention of spread, etc.) are being issued one after another from areas where the state of emergency is applied.

④The government intends to continue the event limit of 10,000 people even if priority measures such as state of emergency and prevention of spread are lifted.

⑤The deadline for the declaration of Okinawa and preventive measures in other areas is until July 11th.



It seems that the governors of each local government are also in a situation where they “release while being cautious” …!



Also, as news related to vaccination


Recently, Prime Minister Suga has said every day that “vaccination is progressing at a faster pace than expected.”, but

As planned, the priority vaccination for the elderly will be completed by the end of July!


Also, thanks to the increasing pace of vaccination, it seems that some local governments have already started distributing vaccination tickets to 18-64 years old, but

It seems that this week’s reservations have already been filled at the large-scale vaccination centers in Tokyo and Osaka, where the reservations were only half full until the day before yesterday ;;;


Vaccination reservation competition is likely to accelerate ;;




By the way, the infection situation in some areas including Tokyo has stopped declining and the direction of clouds is becoming suspicious, but I hope that vaccination will progress considerably next month and you will be smiling!







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) 781,526

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 14,344

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 740,872

= 26,310 people ( -1,767)  ← being treated

 *()=increase  from the day before



(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

these days it’s been declining significantly on most days!




By the way, in overseas COVID-19 related topics

n some states in the United States following Israel,the first vaccination rate seems to have exceeded 70%, and COVID-19 regulations other than wearing masks seem to have been completely lifted!


(American infection status)



↑↑ Thanks to the vaccine, the United States is approaching the end of COVID-19!



The number of people infected in the United States these days is about 12,000, and the population of the United States is about three times that of Japan, so when converted to Japan, it is about 4,000 people a day …



Unlike “Japan’s number of infected people per day is 4000”, “America, where the number of infected people is decreasing to 4000 due to the vaccine effect” is far less likely to increase in the future, so this difference is comparable.



I wonder if Japan will be like that soon …! (Expectation)





Please be careful when you go out!
