TOKYO: The number of new coronavirus cases confirmed in Tokyo was around 472 on Saturday (Aug 1), a new record, NHK public television quoted Tokyo officials as saying.

Though Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike has said the city could declare its own state of emergency, the central government says there is still no need to do so nationally despite a record spike in several cities around the nation.
