Mondays Sankei wrote that the infection routes of COVID-19 cases have been changing in Japan due to an increase in cases involving the highly infectious Delta variant, noting that the ratio of infection with the Delta variant has grown to about 90% in the Kanto region and 60% in the Kansai region. Economic Revitalization Minister Nishimura said at a GOJ panel meeting last week that although most cluster infections used to occur in close-contact environments such as eateries, live music venues, and fitness clubs, there have been cluster infections recently in places such as department stores, hairdressing salons, and private tutoring schools.
