All national dailies wrote that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced on Thursday that it has found an error in its calculation of the number of new coronavirus infections in the prefecture in the period between March 26 and May 3. The Tokyo government said that it missed a total of 58 new cases, but this included 11 patients who either tested negative for the virus later or were counted twice. As a result, 47 cases were added to the Tokyo tally, bringing the total to 5,133. This was the second time for Tokyo to announce a miscalculation.
