Also today, 41 cases were found at the airport on int'l arrivals... out of max of 3,500 people entering.

There were more cases at the airports among people who supposedly tested negative within 72 hours of flying to Japan than in any prefecture. Same as yesterday (31 at airports) and the day before yesterday (41 at airports).

So much for "opening up and rejoining the world".
