Japan imposes 10-day quarantine on those who have been to India

Japan recently announced that it will be extending the quarantine period from six days to 10 days, for those who have been to India and five other South Asian countries recently. This move comes in the wake of rising concerns over the spread of Coronavirus.

As per the reports, this update will be affecting the Japanese citizens primarily, as the government has already banned entry of foreign nationals, including those who have resident status, and those who have been to those countries within the last two weeks, except under special circumstances.

The Japanese Government stated that all those who have been to India, the Maldives, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Nepal, will now have to undergo a 10-day quarantine instead of six days.
