GOJ to enforce tighter border control against Indian strain of COVID-19 

Saturday’s Yomiuri reported that in a bid to keep the Indian variant of the coronavirus out of country, the GOJ has decided to require travelers from India, Pakistan, and four other Southwest Asian nations to quarantine in designated facilities for 10 days upon entry, four days longer than the current requirement. They will also be required to undergo mandatory diagnostic testing in Japan four times—once upon arrival and then three, six, and ten days after arrival. The GOJ also asked domestic and foreign airlines on Friday to immediately limit the number of passengers on Japan-bound flights from India, the UK, France, and other countries and regions affected by the Indian strain to 100 or fewer per flight or 133 or fewer per week.
