Tokyo reported 185 fresh COVID-19 cases on Oct. 22, the first Thursday in about a month that new daily cases have fallen below 200.
Thursdays have tended to have large numbers of new cases because the results of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and other tests normally take about two to three days to be confirmed and compiled.
The last Thursday with under 200 new cases was Sept. 24, when 193 cases were reported.
Twenty-four patients were classified as having severe symptoms that require the use of a ventilator or an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) device, which circulates blood through an artificial lung.
The figure was unchanged from the previous day.
