*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.



*** Saitama ***

New infections are [1173] people (*Max of up to yesterday=2170)


(Individual infection information)

 ・ I couldn’t find any noticeable information today…


    * I’m sorry, but the number of people in Saitama by region comes out, but the details are often late or not come out on the day …




*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [1538] people (*Max of up to yesterday=2878)


(Individual infection information)
 ・ A cluster of 50 people is occurring at a Heisei Yokohama Hospital in Yokohama City.




*** Chiba ***

(Individual infection information)

 ・ I couldn’t find any noticeable information today…




*The following areas introduced until the other day will be excluded for a while.
 ①About “Osaka / Aichi / Okinawa / Hyogo / Kyoto”
   →I have summarized this for the past year, but the details of the infection rarely appear during the day.
 ②About “Hokkaido”
   →Infection is settling down



* In addition, the number of infected people in each prefecture at the present time (19:00) seems to be like this! ↓




*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday

*Today, Jan 15 (Sat) / [25630] people


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)









<Summary of today’s “Major News Related to COVID-19 in Japan”>




The number of infected people in Tokyo today has finally reached the 4,500 level


(Number of infected people in Tokyo: as of January 15, 2022)


↑Even so … I didn’t think the infection situation would change so much after the New Year’s Eve … (fear)

It’s like another world …!


Looking at the entire country, the number of severely ill people, who are said to “appear a little later than the number of infected people,” has already increased dramatically


… So, when I tried to graph… I couldn’t help but the graph was completed … (dry laugh)


(Number of severely ill people nationwide)


That also should be expected, the number of severely ill people has dramatically increased to nearly 100 (about twice) in just one day on January 14th yesterday, so the graph looks like this …


I’m disappointed and laugh bitterly.
But there are people who are suffering, so I can’t laugh …


By the way, in the 5th wave of August last year, it was ↓ that the number of people exceeded 4,500 for the first time, 

<The day when the number of people exceeded 4,500 for the first time in the 5th wave>

Date: August 5th
Number of domestically infected people on that day: 15283
Number of severely ill persons as of that day: 823

so it can be seen that the number of infected people has already exceeded but the number of severely ill people has decreased to 1/4…!


When asked, “Then (currently) 200 people are a small number?”, I’m pretty skeptical …


In the United States, there is news that “the increase has stopped in some states such as New York!”, but
(However, it is stagnant around the peak)

 it seems that the number of infected people is still increasing rapidly in other states and in the United States as a whole …!

In Japan … Last week, the number of infected people had already begun to converge, but


(Changes in the number of infected people in Tokyo during the year-end and New Year holidays last year)


now the number of infected people is expanding …!




Normally, the New Year is over and the infection should start to subside, but now it’s increasing rather than decreasing? !!

Does anyone know what’s going on here …?!: (





(Vaccination schedule in Japan)

2021/12 Medical workers 1.04 million
2022/01 2 million medical workers
2022/01 Elderly 610,000
2022/01 (after that) 64 years old or younger
Each municipality mails vaccination tickets to people who have passed 8 months after the second vaccination.
2022/03 Occupational vaccination

“Eight months after the second vaccination of each individual,
vaccination tickets will be mailed to the general public under the age of 64.”

↓ In addition, there was such an article! ↓






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.


(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, but…





This is in the “Closing column” here, but … There is also super news today! Lol

An application for approval was submitted to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare for an oral drug with outstanding super-effectiveness than the “Merck’s oral drug that can be purchased at pharmacies” introduced yesterday!


Who developed such a super oral drug?

Of course, Pfizer! 🙂


The Pfizer-developed oral drug Paxrovid has the tremendous effect of reducing the risk of hospitalization and death by 89% if it is started within 3 days of onset in patients at severe risk!


As for side effects, at the stage of clinical trials, the frequency of adverse events did not change between those who received this drug and those who received fake drugs, and the symptoms seemed to be mild!


This is only for people at risk of aggravation, but it’s not because there is a risk of side effects, but if it is just a matter of production capacity, when it becomes possible to mass-produce it, it seems that we can finally say goodbye to COVID-19, isn’t it !?


It may be near the day when we can finally call COVID-19 a “normal cold”!





Please be careful when you go out!
