TOKYO, 16th July, 2022 (WAM) — Japan’s daily COVID-19 cases topped 100,000 on Friday for the first time since early February, doubling from a week earlier, as the country enters a seventh wave of infections spurred by the highly transmissible BA.5 Omicron subvariant, Kyodo News reported.

The government decided the same day to expand the scope of people who can receive fourth COVID-19 vaccine shots to all medical personnel and workers at elderly care facilities as the nationwide daily count climbed closer to a record high of around 104,000.
