All national dailies wrote that Tokyo Governor Koike asked Tokyo residents to refrain from traveling to their hometowns and elsewhere during the upcoming Obon summer holidays to prevent the coronavirus from spreading further by saying that hospital capacity in Tokyo could be overwhelmed due to a rise in cases, especially among the elderly. According to Yomiuri, there are currently 1,476 COVID-19 patients in hospitals across Tokyo, exceeding the maximum number of 1,413 that was recorded when the state of emergency was in place.
