Meanwhile, Tokyo has reported more than 2,100 new COVID-19 cases Today.
That’s the highest number ever to be recorded on a Monday according to local media.
But a drop from the weekend when the city reported a record 400 new infections on Saturday.
At least 281 infections were linked to the Olympic games so far, organizers say.
Last week, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced the extension of Japan’s COVID-19 State Of Emergency until the end of August.
The restrictions now cover four new prefectures three of them surrounding Tokyo.
