Open data

No. of positive cases

  1. *1 The figures provided are from the reported date. Thus, they may differ from the figures currently published by data sources such as the websites of municipalities.
  2. *2 Since the announcement made on May 8, 2020, the data source for domestic cases (excluding those related to charter flights) has been an accumulation of data published by the relevant municipalities on their websites. Before that, the data was an accumulation of individual records collected by the MHLW.
  3. *3 Domestic cases do not include cases of airport quarantine, regardless of whether a municipality (the data source) may have enumerated such figures in their publications.
  4. *4 The number of new positive cases for the relevant reporting date is calculated by accumulating the individual number of cases (including re-positive cases) that the municipalities release to the press. Consequently, this number may differ from the increase or decrease from the previous day's total.

No. of people who have taken the PCR test

  1. *1 The figures provided are from the reported date. Thus, they may differ from the figures currently published by data sources such as the websites of municipalities.
  2. *2 Since the announcement made on May 8, 2020, the data source for domestic cases (excluding those related to charter flights) has been an accumulation of data published by the relevant municipalities on their websites. Before that, the data was an accumulation of individual records collected by the MHLW.
  3. *3 Domestic cases do not include cases of airport quarantine, regardless of whether a municipality (the data source) may have enumerated such figures in their publications.
  4. *4 Some municipalities count the number of tests conducted, which causes the figures to exceed the number of people tested. For municipalities that post the number of tests conducted on their websites, the day-to-day difference is calculated as the difference in the number of tests conducted.
  5. *5 The number of people who have taken the PCR test is calculated as the difference compared to the cumulative number of people for the day before. Thus, due to an inspection of past data, the cumulative number of people up to the relevant day may be lower than that for the previous day. Cells are left blank in such cases.

No. of people requiring inpatient treatment

  1. *1 The figures provided are from the reported date. Thus, they may differ from the figures currently published by data sources such as the websites of municipalities.
  2. *2 Since the announcement made on May 8, 2020, the data source for domestic cases (excluding those related to charter flights) has been an accumulation of data published by the relevant municipalities on their websites. Before that, the data was an accumulation of individual records collected by the MHLW.
  3. *3 Domestic cases do not include cases of airport quarantine, regardless of whether a municipality (the data source) may have enumerated such figures in their publications.

No. of people who were discharged from hospital or released from mandatory convalescence

  1. *1 The figures provided are from the reported date. Thus, they may differ from the figures currently published by data sources such as the websites of municipalities.
  2. *2 Since the announcement made on May 8, 2020, the data source for domestic cases (excluding those related to charter flights) has been an accumulation of data published by the relevant municipalities on their websites. Before that, the data was an accumulation of individual records collected by the MHLW.
  3. *3 Domestic cases do not include cases of airport quarantine, regardless of whether a municipality (the data source) may have enumerated such figures in their publications.

No. of deaths

  1. *1 The figures provided are from the reported date. Thus, they may differ from the figures currently published by data sources such as the websites of municipalities.
  2. *2 Since the announcement made on May 8, 2020, the data source for domestic cases (excluding those related to charter flights) has been an accumulation of data published by the relevant municipalities on their websites. Before that, the data was an accumulation of individual records collected by the MHLW.
  3. *3 Domestic cases do not include cases of airport quarantine, regardless of whether a municipality (the data source) may have enumerated such figures in their publications.
  4. *4 The cumulative number of deaths calculated by accumulating individual cases may differ from the figures given in the municipalities' press releases. Furthermore, the number of deaths reported to the press may differ from the figures given on the municipalities' websites.
  5. *5 When a municipality reviews its enumeration of cases that have an unclear association with COVID-19 and announces this on its website, the date on which the municipality announced and updated these figures will be the reported date, in accordance with the government announcement made on June 17.

No. of PCR tests conducted

  1. *1 The figures are provisional and may be updated.
  2. *2 Cases under investigation are left blank.

Current situation

(The day-on-day difference is shown in parentheses)

  1. *1 Since the announcement made on May 8, 2020, the data source for domestic cases (excluding those related to charter flights) has been an accumulation of data published by the relevant municipalities on their websites. Before that, the data was an accumulation of individual records collected by the MHLW.
  2. *2 The number of new positive cases is calculated by accumulating the individual number of cases (including re-positive cases) that the municipalities release to the press. Consequently, this number may differ from the increase or decrease from the previous day's total.
  3. *3 Some municipalities count the number of tests conducted, which causes the figures to exceed the number of people tested. For municipalities that post the number of tests conducted on their websites, the day-to-day difference is calculated as the difference in the number of tests conducted.
  4. *4 The MHLW calculated the figures by subtracting the number of people who required inpatient treatment, the number of people who were discharged from hospital, the number of people who were released from mandatory convalescence, and the number of deaths from the number of positive cases. Note that the totals may not match since some prefectures do not re-count patients who tested positive after being released from mandatory convalescence and were later readmitted to hospital.
  5. *5 Domestic cases do not include cases of airport quarantine, regardless of whether a municipality (the data source) may have enumerated such figures in their publications.
  6. *6 Although this was not mentioned on Hokkaido's website at the time of update, one death has been confirmed in Sapporo according to press release materials.
