According to interviews with related parties, the number of people confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus on the 31st in Tokyo is more than 1,300, which is the largest number ever.

It is the first time in Tokyo that the number of people exceeds 1000 per day.

Governor Koike said at an extraordinary press conference held on the 30th, "A third wave of unprecedented size is attacking. It is a diversion whether this year-end and New Year holidays can stop the spread of infection. I want you to give priority to life." He urged him to spend the year-end and New Year holidays quietly at home and not to hold year-end parties, new year parties, and dinner parties.
