NHK reported that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told the press today: “Over the last few days, new cases have been confirmed by only a portion of local governments. Although 47 new cases were confirmed in Tokyo yesterday, that was the result of active testing, and 18 of the individuals were working at the same ‘host club.’ Despite the large population, there were only 10 cases for which the routes of infections were unknown.” Suga reportedly added: “We will continue to work closely with Tokyo and other local governments and aim to balance preventing the spread of the virus and promoting social and economic activities.” He reportedly said the GOJ is planning to gradually raise the level of social and economic activities as planned, including easing restrictions on travel across prefectural borders on June 19.
