Remarks by Japan economy minister, Yasutoshi Nishimura

That's not an encouraging outlook, after having recorded over 10,000 cases for the first time yesterday. The surge in cases also owes to more testing being done during this period but still, it pretty much just unravels the actual situation on the ground.

The good news is that this hasn't translated to an increase in the number of daily deaths - at least significantly - just yet. Then again, deaths is a lagging statistic so if the virus trend keeps as it is, it should eventually tick higher.
