Matsuno reportedly told the press: “We have decided to refuse the re-entry of foreigners with residency status from the ten designated nations and regions unless there are special circumstances.” In addition, NHK said that Sweden, Spain, Nigeria, and Portugal were added to the list of nations from which Japanese returnees will be required to stay at government-designated facilities for three days.
