NHK reported online that the numbers of new cases have not been properly reported to the Tokyo government by public health centers on multiple occasions, saying that the total number of cases in Tokyo is expected to increase by about 40 as a result. The network said this is the second time for Tokyo to disclose such miscalculations of the numbers of COVID-19 cases. According to the network, the miscalculations will not affect the government’s decision on whether to lift the state of emergency because the data in question was from the beginning of the month or earlier.
