Supplementary notes

*The number was corrected on March 19 because Chiba Prefecture was counting the number of tests conducted instead of number of people undergoing the tests.

**The source changed the information they provide starting from May 8. The figures are now based on the data published by municipalities instead of the data reported directly to the source. The actual number of the conducted tests might be smaller due to the method of adding up.
***Tokyo and Hyogo Prefecture modified the way of calculation and reported an additional number of tests conducted; hence the number increased significantly.

Figures prior to June 26 come from previous reporting.
