Today's COVID-19 news in Japan
As the temperature drops down, there’s a concern about the increase of COVID-19 spread. In fact, Japan recorded more than 2,000 new coronavirus cases today. I have been checking the daily statistics of COVID-19 infection cases in Japan. But looking at the new daily record today made me feel scared. According to the data, It looks like we’re definitely going through the “third wave” of the pandemic. Some experts point out that the recent increase of the virus infection was mostly caused by “Go to travel” and “Go to eat” campaigns; the government-initiated projects to support tourism and restaurant industries that were severely affected by the pandemic. The statistics also show that it’s very difficult to keep the businesses afloat while protecting the people from the virus.
