Tokyo reports 1,050 daily coronavirus cases, highest since Jan. 28

Tokyo reported another 1,050 coronavirus infections Saturday, the highest daily number since Jan. 28, with the capital and three western prefectures under the country’s third state of emergency since late last month.

The newest figure was slightly higher than the 1,027 cases reported Thursday, as Japanese authorities struggle to curb the resurgence of infections in Tokyo, with less than three months to go before the Olympics begin in the capital.
