The Japanese authorities have once again drawn attention to a possible second wave of infection in the capital city of Tokyo after 48 further cases of coronavirus were registered on the last day. This is the biggest increase since early May.
According to the Kiodo news agency, the number exceeded the 47 newly infected people registered the previous day in connection with an infection focus in connection with the bars and night clubs in the city.
The latest data have all triggered the alarms, fearing that after the lifting of the state of emergency, Japan will experience a strong upswing in nationwide cases, so that most companies can resume their activities.
Since the pandemic began, Tokyo has confirmed 5,592 coronavirus cases, making it the most affected area in the country’s 47 prefectures. The number collected this Monday is the highest since May 5, when 57 cases were registered.
