It rains in Tokyo today! It's a light rain.
The flow of people seems to have increased slightly in Tokyo since the cancellation of the 39 prefectures emergency declaration on May 14...

It's a Bloomberg article!
In summary, it looks like this!
(It have not confirmed this in April yet),
but the number of deaths in Tokyo from January to March is less than in the past four years.

It's too great Japan!
