Tokyo confirmed 266 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, with serious cases entering double-digit figures for the first time since Jan. 2 amid a coronavirus emergency.

The number of serious cases based on the standards of metropolitan governments fell by six from the previous day to 97, while the daily figure was kept below 500 for a ninth day in a row.

Monday’s load, with a drop of more than 100 from the day before, marked 18 consecutive days with less than 1,000 COVID-19 cases per day.

Of the new cases in Tokyo on Monday, 51 were from people in their 20s, 38 in their 40s and 37 in their 50s. People aged 65 or older accounted for 53 cases. The cumulative number of cases in the capital is now 106,771.

The Tokyo daily figure comes after 6,823 tests were conducted on Friday. It usually takes about three days for the tests to give results.

Earlier Monday, the weekly number of newly confirmed coronavirus cases in Japan was confirmed to have dropped for the fifth week in a row.

As of Monday 10, the cumulative number of infections, including cruise ship passengers and crew members, reached 416,673, up from 10,384 a week earlier. The growth rate shrank from 15,601 last week.

According to the prefecture, Tokyo had the highest figure with 106,505, with 2,660 more, followed by Osaka Prefecture with 45,947, 871 above and Kanagawa Prefecture with 43,264, with 983 more.

The country’s total number of virus-related deaths rose 542 to 6,983, representing a slower increase than 675 last week. But the slowdown was not as rapid as that of the weekly increase in infection. The cumulative death toll was highest in Tokyo at 1,131, with 108 more, followed by Osaka at 1,054, 56 higher and Hokkaido’s northernmost prefecture at 639, 19 more.

Also Monday, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga made it clear again that vaccinations for the virus will begin for medical workers on Wednesday.

“We will make every effort to deliver safe and effective vaccines to the people as soon as possible,” Suga told a meeting of the Lower House Budget Committee.

On Sunday, drug manufacturer Pfizer Inc.’s coronavirus vaccine. became the first to gain approval from the health ministry for use in Japan.

Regarding a drop in cases of new infections under COVID-19’s second state of emergency in Tokyo and nine other areas, Suga said the effects of the countermeasures are “clearly visible”.

Noting that group infections are on the rise in facilities for the elderly, Suga vowed to implement the measures thoroughly to ensure that new cases fall further, so that the urgency is removed.

On Sunday, a total of 1,364 new cases of the deadly virus were reported nationwide, with the daily number staying below 2,000 for the eighth day in a row.
