Japan's daily coronavirus tally at record high - NHK
TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan hit a record single-day number of COVID-19 cases on Saturday, public broadcaster NHK said, as the Omicron variant continued to spread.
The country's daily virus cases exceeded 100,000 cases, marking a fresh high, NHK reported.
Most regions in Japan are now under infection control measures to try to blunt the spread of Omicron that has exploded among a population where less than 5% have received vaccine booster shots.
