Japan Records 121 COVID-19 Deaths In One Day

TOKYO (AP) – Japan on Thursday reported 121 deaths from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, the highest number of deaths from this disease in a single day in the country.

With the report of the Ministry of Health, the total number of deaths from coronavirus in Japan rose to 6,678.


The country has not yet started applying vaccines. In the next few days, inoculations to health workers will begin.

Japan also did not impose any lockdown during the pandemic, although a state of emergency promoted by the government is currently in effect in Tokyo and other metropolitan areas, under which the population is asked to stay at home and for restaurants to close at night. .

Despite the fact that the number of coronavirus cases remained relatively low in Japan compared to the United States and Europe, the number of infections has been on the rise recently. Demands to cancel the Tokyo Olympics, which are scheduled for July, are increasingly frequent.
