And the administration of the city of Tokyo and its suburbs, which has witnessed an accelerating spread of the epidemic since the beginning of this January in four numbers, announced that the number of new infections recorded today was about 1026 cases, in a sudden, escalating return, which brings the total number of injuries in Tokyo to 95,534.

And his government called on residents to reduce their movement to be limited to only necessary cases.
