People started to lose more money these days

According to Japan Today, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Service said in a report released on Wednesday that the police were able to return 2.95 billion Yen of the total amount to their owners.

Speaking to the Mainichi Shimbun, an official said: "This increase may be the result of the massive easing of border containment measures against the coronavirus and the outflow of people following the resumption of socio-economic activity."

it seems that the value of lost items and money has been increasing lately. which can only be explained by the lifting of coronavirus restrictions and more people coming out. In this context, while the losses increase, the citizens of the country do not lose anything from their honesty.
