Broadcasters led with the forecast for heavy rain across Japan through the weekend (NHK, NTV), reports on a record number of COVID-19 cases reported nationwide yesterday (TBS), an increase in the number of people out and about in Kamakura (Fuji TV), and security camera footage of a man ransacking a laundromat in Tokyo (TV Asahi). 


All national dailies except Nikkei gave front-page coverage to the exponential spike in COVID-19 cases across the country. Nikkei’s top item was the GOJ’s plan to designate approximately 600 plots of land near SDF facilities and nuclear plants as properties that may not be purchased by foreign investors due to national security concerns.
