Tokyo on Monday confirmed 119 new coronavirus infections, falling below 200 for the first time in five days, Gov. Yuriko Koike said.

The latest figure comes a day after the capital confirmed 206 coronavirus cases, breaching 200 for a record fourth straight day, including the largest single-day tally of 243 on Friday, amid increasing concerns among the public about a resurgence of the pandemic.

The daily figures announced by the metropolitan government reflect the most recent totals reported by health authorities and medical institutions in the capital.
