   In the Japanese capital, five cases were reported Sunday, while six cases were confirmed each in Hokkaido and Kanagawa Prefecture, two in Chiba Prefecture and one in Osaka Prefecture.
   Kitakyushu recorded 12 new cases including four pupils of its Moritsune elementary school, where another pupil was found infected Thursday.
   The city concluded that cluster infections occurred at the school. All five kids are in the same class. In the city, municipal schools reopened just on Monday.
