GOJ having difficulty deciding whether to quarantine Abe after U.S. trip 

Asahi wrote that the GOJ is having difficulty deciding how to deal with quarantine requirements for Prime Minister Abe after his possible trip to the United States to participate in the G7 summit in Washington because the visit would raise concerns about coronavirus infection. The paper speculated that if the premier were to visit the United States, he would have to stay at the prime minister’s official residence or another facility for two weeks. The paper wrote that although some GOJ officials insist that a two-week isolation would not be necessary for Abe, a senior Kantei official is concerned that the premier would be criticized if he were to receive special treatment amid declining public support for his cabinet. A senior MOFA official reportedly said that no exceptions will be allowed in terms of quarantine regulations.
