The tally includes 13 deaths among infected passengers of the Diamond Princess cruise ship that was quarantined in Yokohama in February. The first death in Japan was recorded on Feb. 13.

The country's death toll has been on a downward trend since hitting a peak in early May, but there is concern the trend will reverse with the current resurgence in infections.

The Tokyo Government has announced that 230 new cases have been reported today, July 22 bringing the total cases in the capital to over 10,000. This is the 2nd day the capital recorded over 200 cases in a single day.

As of writing, there are over 27,000 case in Japan for which over 20,000 have recovered.
