TOKYO, July 2 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks closed slightly higher Thursday as U.S. manufacturing activity rebounding to its highest level in more than a year helped sentiment, although gains were trimmed as daily COVID-19 cases in Tokyo hit a two month high.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 24.23 points, or 0.11 percent, from Wednesday to close the day at 22,145.96.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 4.15 points, or 0.27 percent, to finish at 1,542.76.

Transportation equipment, air transportation and insurance issues comprised those that gained the most by the close of play.
