Eighty-three new cases of COVID-19 infections were reported Monday in Tokyo, public broadcaster NHK and other media reported, citing metropolitan government sources.

The daily increase was lower than the previous two days — 117 on Saturday and 143 on Sunday, in the highest single-day total yet.

Mondays have typically seen a decrease in the number of cases, a trend that was believed to be the result of a smaller number of tests being conducted over the weekend.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has been calling on citizens to avoid nonessential and nonurgent outings.
