TOKYO (Reuters) – Tokyo’s government said on Monday that new daily infections of COVID-19 declined to 87, the lowest since Nov. 2 last year.

Cases have been on the decline since peaking at more than 5,000 a day in August amid a wave driven by the infectious Delta variant. Tokyo and much of Japan last week exited a state of emergency over COVID-19 that had lasted for almost six months.
