"The timing couldn’t be worse: with Tokyo the focus of world attention after the start of the long-delayed Olympic Games, health officials in the Japanese capital report a never-before-seen daily count in coronavirus infections.
On Tuesday, Tokyo’s metropolitan government confirmed 2,848 cases, a number that surpasses the previous high of 2,520 cases on Jan. 7. Since even before the opening ceremony for the Games last week, the number of new infections has been trending up. Less than a week ago, the daily count was at just over 1,800.
Tuesday’s record marked the eighth consecutive day of rising cases for the city, which postponed the Games last year due to the ongoing pandemic, but forged ahead this year amid a state of emergency and without spectators as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19."
