Today in Tokyo, a new daily record of coronavirus infected – 4058 people.
The previous record was set on Thursday – 3865 cases of infection.
Yesterday in Japan the national record of infected in one day – 10743 was registered.
According to the Japanese authorities, the aggravation of the situation with COVID-19 is due to the spread of the delta option. The majority of new infections have been reported among young people, and the authorities attribute this to the fact that the coronavirus vaccination campaign is giving priority to the elderly.
According to Japanese officials, the increase in the number of infected has nothing to do with the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, as serious protection measures have been taken.
