The Tokyo Metropolitan Government confirmed 14 new coronavirus cases Sunday, marking the seventh strait day the number of new infections was in the double-digits, media reports said.

The daily cases in the capital have averaged 21 so far this month. A growing number of recent cases have occurred in popular nightlife areas such as Shinjuku’s adult entertainment district, with its hostess bars and host clubs where close contact is the norm. That is raising worries of a possible resurgence after the national state of emergency was lifted across the nation on May 25.
