South Korea arrests Japanese national who refused to quarantine

NHK reported online this morning that the South Korean police arrested a Japanese man in his 20s on Thursday for refusing to comply with a requirement to quarantine after he entered South Korea on April 2. According to the network, although South Korea mandates all foreigners who enter the country to be placed under a two-week quarantine in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the man did not follow the order and went out to eat eight times. The Japanese Embassy in Seoul reportedly confirmed the arrest and is communicating with the South Korean side to obtain more information.
