Tokyo sets all time high for new COVID-19 infections

CKTB - NEWS - Tokyo Shibuya COVID-19

Tokyo has the dubious distinction of setting a record it was hoping to avoid, especially while hosting the Summer Olympics.
   
The Japanese capital reported today an all-time high for new COVID-19 infections with 3,177.
   
That's about 300 more daily cases than yesterday's count and comes as Tokyo remains under a fourth state of emergency.
   
Experts blame the surge on the more contagious Delta variant.
