NHK reported last night that a Tokyo Metropolitan Government blue-ribbon commission composed of epidemiologists and other public health experts expressed reservations on Thursday about the COVID-19 situation in the nation’s capital because the number of new cases appears to be increasing lately. The seven-day rolling average of new daily cases in the week ending on Sept. 16 was 181, up from 149 in the previous week. The percentage of patients whose transmission routes cannot be identified has also increased for the first time in a month. As such, the panel reportedly voiced “strong concern about a potential resurgence.”
