The number of newly infected people in Tokyo has increased for the third consecutive day …



Come to think of it, the peak of the 4th wave is less than 1200 people (MAX of the week) …

On the other hand, there are currently around 500 people (MAX this week) …

Hmm … When I think about it that way, it doesn’t decrease much …




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

(Around 15:00 on Jan 18, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)



Well, I will summarize

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



Out of [453] new infections in Tokyo


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

[238] people is in their 20s to 30s

People discharged from hospital or

those who have completed medical treatment at home: 162,671 ( +456)

 = -5 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)

 = 168,321 - 162,671 - 2,192

*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).

*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)

*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)

By the way, regarding the emergency declaration of ↑, it was decided yesterday that it will be canceled as scheduled on June 20, except for Okinawa!

The result↓



●State of emergency
 Okinawa only

●Priority measures such as prevention of spread
 Hokkaido / Tokyo / Saitama / Chiba / Kanagawa / Aichi  / Kyoto / Osaka / Hyogo / Fukuoka

*Both deadlines are until July 11th


*Complete cancellation
 Okayama / Hiroshima / Gifu / Mie


Other than that, there was no noticeable information …



… Ah, there was one new piece of information! ↓


<Countermeasures against infection to Olympic officials>

・PCR test for foreigners and media twice before entering Japan and daily for 3 days after entering Japan
・ Athletes do PCR test every day
・Media is concentrated in one private hotel.
 →Dedicated vehicle for movement

It’s a very thorough measure, isn’t it?

But I think it’s okay to do a “daily” PCR test for everyone involved, not just the players …




By the way, here are the future measures for each region where the cancellation of the state of emergency to 9 prefectures has been decided ↓
(I’m soory but… it’s too much, so if you have an area you’re interested in, please read the article from the link)

Most prefectures have narrowed down the target area within that prefecture, and it seems that it is OK to serve alcoholic beverages at restaurants (although there is a request to shorten business hours).


By the way, the government says that the time to serve alcoholic beverages at restaurants is until 7:00 pm, but it seems that some prefectures have decided to serve it until 8:00 pm.


And it seems that Tokyo is until 7 pm.




And I would like to summarize the comments of Chairman Omi of the government subcommittee regarding the cancellation of this declaration.

“Releasing the declaration was a very annoying and complicated decision.”

“The number of infected people in Tokyo is not heading for stage 2.”

“I accepted the cancellation because the medical care provision system is improving.”

“There was also an opinion that the declaration period was long and the general public was reaching its limit.”

“In Tokyo, it is a sign of the spread of infection (1) Increase in the number of people in downtown areas at night (2) Increase in infection among young people has already occurred.”

“The increase in the number of people in the city of Tokyo has also increased for the fifth straight week.”

“Young people are unlikely to get as high a vaccination rate as older people.”

“Therefore, t seems that it will be a little later than October-November that the infection will be completely down and you can rest assured.”



Still, the state of emergency has been lifted …

It seems to be released “because the general public is the limit” rather than the infection situation …




By the way, as an aside, in conclusion, it seems that the Japanese government is not really thinking anything, because they are canceling the state of emergency just before the Olympics and accepting the provision of sake at the important venue, Tokyo …
(At first, I was wondering if I had some deep thoughts and were taking each measure …)



It’s just before the Olympics, but it’s a month away, and it’s enough time for the infection to spread …

I hope the infection never spreads as it is …







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) 783,145

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 14,391

+ (Number of hospital discharges ) 743,507

= 25,247 people ( -1,063)  ← 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, vaccination under the age of 64 has started yesterday at the large-scale vaccination centers of the governments of Tokyo and Osaka!

Of course, those who have been given a “vaccination ticket” from the local government are eligible, but it seems that there were some young people at the venue yesterday as well.


By the way … It seems that the vaccination reservations in Tokyo have already been filled up until June 27th, and the reservation start date after June 28th has not been announced yet.

(*By the way, it seems that the first vaccination limit will be considerably narrowed for one month after June 28 because it is the second vaccination period for the elderly.)



Actually, I received a vaccination ticket from the local government where I live yesterday, but the reservations for the large-scale vaccination center in Tokyo are already full, and the venue of the local government is still for people aged 65 and over …



Even if the vaccination ticket arrives, it seems that vaccination will not be possible yet…



If I have time, I’ll go to a large-scale inoculation center in Osaka …(dry laugh)





Please be careful when you go out!
