Japan will request that people arriving from South Korea and China be quarantined for two weeks at designated facilities in Japan to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday.
“We will strengthen immigration quarantines on people from the two countries,” Abe told a Cabinet-level task force meeting on the virus.
“We will ask them to stay in designated areas for two weeks and not to use public transport in the country.”
The measure will take effect at 12:00 a.m. on March 9 and last through March 31, he said.
