TOKYO, Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks ended mixed Thursday as fears of the economic fallout from a spike in COVID-19 infections in the capital offset optimism about progress in the development of a vaccine.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average dropped 93.80 points, or 0.36 percent, from Wednesday at 25,634.34.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, gained 5.76 points, or 0.33 percent, to finish at 1,726.41.

Land transportation and wholesale issues comprised those that gained the most, while steel makers and nonferrous metal issues led decliners by the close of play. Enditem
