Nikkei wrote that in a bid to rein in the coronavirus pandemic, the Health Ministry is considering amending a law governing hotels and inns so that they can reject customers who may be infected with COVID-19 based on the assessment that the virus has spread rapidly in the countryside as a result of an influx of tourists from urban areas. Under the present regulation, it is extremely difficult for operators to refuse customers for public health reasons.
