According to NHK, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government taskforce on the coronavirus updated its assessment of the epidemic curve today, concluding that the infection situation is heading toward “a critically dangerous level that has never been seen before.” The panel of public health professionals estimated that a week from now more than 24,000 Tokyoites could test positive every day if the upward trend continues. “Under such an explosive infection situation, social functions may grind to a halt,” the panel warned. “Everyone could become infected or be designated a close contact. People must take thorough measures to defend themselves.”
