Japan plans to ease restrictions on foreign tourists by reducing the quarantine to 10 days

The Japanese government is considering reducing the quarantine period to ten days for foreign tourists who have received the full COVID-19 vaccination schedule.

Currently, the country’s health authorities are urging all people who come from abroad to remain in isolation in their homes or accommodations for at least 14 days, Japanese radio and television NHK reports.

Hence, the Japanese executive could now bet on cutting that deadline to ten days, arguing that social and economic activity will have to return to normal as the vaccination process progresses globally.

However, only people who have been vaccinated with doses of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca and are required to present a vaccination card issued by Japan, the US or the European Union can benefit from this measure.

The government of Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga intends to put this measure into effect at the end of September at the earliest.

The data on infections in the last 24 hours in the capital show a strong improvement compared to the previous week. The Tokyo city government confirmed 1,675 new cases Thursday, 1,424 fewer than seven days earlier.

For its part, the number of patients with COVID-19 in critical condition in the capital is 251, one less than the previous day. In this way, Tokyo adds its eighteenth consecutive day of breaking records in a downtrend.
