Tokyo's COVID infection rate hits new record

Records have been set nearly every day lately in Tokyo, but not all of them have been by athletes competing in the Olympics.

Japan's capital has exceeded 4,000 coronavirus infections for the first time — 4,058 cases, to be exact. That's a record high and nearly four times as many cases were reported just a week ago.

Tokyo set new case records every day from Monday to Wednesday, experiencing just a slight dip on Thursday, when they totaled 3,300 — still one of the city's highest daily counts on record.

Within the Olympic bubble, 21 games-related personnel have tested positive in the past day, none of which were athletes. Since July started, 241 people connected with the Olympics have tested positive for the coronavirus.
