REUTERS/Issei KatoCases of the virus that causes COVID-19 rose for a fourth straight day to a two-month high of 131 on Saturday, the third day in a row over 100. The metropolis accounts for 11% of Japan’s population, but has represented half of the country’s daily infections in recent weeks.

Koike, who became Tokyo’s first woman governor in 2016, saw her popularity surge this year as her straight-talking approach to the outbreak won the public’s support.“I think she has been working hard on the coronavirus. As a woman, I want her to keep on doing a good job,” Tomiko Kawano, 80, told Reuters after voting for her.

Recent media polls showed Koike, often floated as a potential prime minister, commanding a comfortable lead over other contenders including Kenji Utsunomiya, former president of the Japan Federation of Bar Associations.The winner of Sunday’s election will face a difficult task of trying to curb the virus without overly stifling business in the capital, which accounts for about 20% of Japan’s economy.

Preventive measures pushed Japan, the world’s third-biggest economy, into a recession in the first quarter, with a deeper contraction expected in the April-June period.The next governor will also be the face of the host city of the next Olympic Games, originally scheduled to start this month, but postponed by one year because of the coronavirus.

Koike, 67, has said she aims for a safe, secure and simplified event, while a survey by the Asahi newspaper showed last month that 59% of those polled believe the Tokyo Olympics should be cancelled or postponed again.Voting ends at 8 p.m. (1100 GMT), with media likely to call the outcome soon after.
