Saturday’s Nikkei reported that more people have apparently been contracting the novel coronavirus at home during the ongoing fifth wave, citing data released by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government showing that according to contact tracing, some 55% of the people who tested positive for the virus in the third and fourth weeks of July were infected at home. Experts have reportedly noted that the chances of catching the virus at home are growing due to the spread of the highly transmissible Delta strain and an increase in family members staying at home due to the summer holidays.
