The number of infected people in Tokyo is …
The numbers are still low, probably because there are few tests done today as it is a holiday!


During the Golden Week period, the actual holidays (May 3rd to May 5th) are over until today, but what will happen in the future …




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

(Around 15:00 today, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

*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 [941] people (*Max of up to yesterday=7354)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [?] locations




*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [1277] people (*Max of up to yesterday=9097)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that clusters have been confirmed in a total of [0] locations




*** Chiba ***

New infections are [735] people (*Max of up to yesterday=6604)


(Individual infection information)

 ・It seems that new clusters have been confirmed in a total of  [2] locations




*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









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






By the way, today, on May 5th, it’s “Children’s Day”!

↑As you can see from the calendar above, GW is approaching the second half of these days…!


This time it was a GW where the number of infected people did not decrease at all …!


(This year = 2022)


(Last year = 2021)


↑Last year, the numbers clearly decreased on the holidays of May 3-5, but it seems unlikely that they will decrease so much on May 3-5 this year …


By the way, due to the shape of the bar graph, it seems that the infection has spread much more last year, but in reality, the number of infected people this year is more than three times that of last year … (dry laugh)


(*Is it about this if you force it on the same graph?)


…… In 2021, it peaked in the week after the Golden Week holidays, and after that it settled down a little, but it did not decrease much until July, and the nightmare fifth wave from the end of July was reached…
So… What will happen this year …



By the way, this summary article also introduces every day that “the spread of infection in China does not stop!”, but in Shanghai, where had nearly 30,000 new infections a day at its peak last month, it seems that the number of people is steadily decreasing to about 5,000 now.

The number of newly infected people in Shanghai on May 3 was 4831, which is the first time since March 31.
(Shanghai at the end of March = when they started to restrict going out)



It seems that confusion continues, such as “In some cases, a living elderly person was misunderstood that he was dead and was put in a body bag and was about to be transported to a funeral hall.”…


It seems that measures against infectious diseases will continue in Shanghai and Beijing, after the consecutive holidays.
(中国 北京 連休明け以降もコロナ感染対策強化 – NHK)


It may take longer to control than before due to the infectivity of Omicron variant, but I would like them to complete “Zero Corona” in this condition!





↓ In addition, there was such an article! ↓

(* There was no other news I would like to introduce today)






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…
It’s increasing every day, but there are days when it’s decreasing …!





The whole country is in a place where there is a “calm mood of infection filled with lies” during the Golden Week holidays, but
(* The reason is simply not enough testing)



in fact Okinawa is in a terrible state … ↓



As you can see at a glance, it’s an infection super-spread mode …


Where was the trigger?
Well, as you can see from the graph, it’s around March 23rd.



↑Speaking of March 23 …?


…Yes, as you say, there were three consecutive holidays in March from March 19th to March 21st.


In other words, it is clear from these points that the virus entered the “limited area = island” where the infection was settling down because the number of tourists and people moving increased.


The same thing is happening in Japan, an island country with a slightly larger scale …


Still, the Japanese government does not strengthen measures at the airport at all …
…Yeah, I’m going to get abusive about it (dry laugh)


I think it’s good just to set a quarantine period when entering Japan, and if that is done properly, I would like foreign friends to come to Japan more and more …
By doing so, I think even friends who come to Japan can enter Japan with peace of mind as a “country without COVID-19” …Hmmm…








Please be careful when you go out!
