Tokyo daily covid-19 cases total 1,128 on Saturday

TOKYO (Reuters) – Tokyo reported 1,128 COVID-19 cases on Saturday as Japan’s capital kicked off the Olympic Games.

Infections have been on the rise in recent weeks, reaching 1,979 on Thursday, the highest since January.

The number tends to be lower on holidays and weekends due to less testing.
