Japan’s capital recorded 472 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, the third straight day of record numbers.
Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike issued a warning Saturday in an online video, urging people to wash their hands, wear masks and visit those businesses that display the special city-backed stickers with the image of a rainbow, which indicates good social distancing.
Most people getting sick were in their 20s and 30s, highlighting how they may be putting their guard down and going out partying, according to officials.
