Tokyo registered Friday a new record of 463 daily coronavirus cases, exceeding 400 cases for the first time since the country began to be affected by the pandemic in January, and announced the establishment of its own Center for Disease Control (CDC).

The spread of the virus in the capital is at its worst level and so is the response capacity of the health system, Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike said at a Friday press conference in which she announced the figure.
