Decreasing numbers in Tokyo coinciding with increasing numbers in the rural provinces. Could it simply be the people who would normally be filling train carriages and bars with virus instead coughed on their relatives in the countryside for Obon?

What's more, Tatsuki also issued a prediction on her home page to the effect that "around 2020, an unknown virus will appear, reaching its peak in April; it will then vanish but reappear 10 years later."
She lifted that from Dean Koontz' 1981 book The Eyes of Darkness. Koontz did not accurately imagine corona, but the bit about vanishing and coming back 10 years later is straight from the book.

The news is full of horror stories of uncontrolled spread of infection in all sorts of countries either through lack of access to health systems or a large proportion of the citizenry that refuses to take precautions. The populace doesn't draw a distinction between "responsible foreigners" and just "foreigners." Suga would be hung out to dry if he failed to listen to the people who pay his salary.
