Omicron: Japan will close the door to businessman and international students.


Japanese media: Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will announce the prohibition of entering Japan for business purposes and foreign students.

 

Japan’s TV Asahi has just reported that in view of the spread of the COVID-19 virus mutant strain Omicron, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will issue a message to prohibit people for business purposes and foreign students from entering Japan.

 

 

 

Japan’s Kyodo News reported on the 27th that the National Institute of Infectious Diseases of Japan has designated the mutant strain of the COVID-19  Omicron as the second-highest alert “mutant strain requiring attention” in the country.

According to the report, it is necessary not only to investigate the virus genome (all genetic information) and strengthen monitoring of infected persons found in the country and during quarantine, but also to conduct statistics and announcements when virus strains are detected.

 

Kyodo News said the strain has mutations that may affect immunity and enhance infectivity, but the details are unclear. It is said that no confirmed cases have been found in Japan.

The National Institute of Infectious Diseases urged the public to continue to wear masks, wash hands and avoid three containments (closed, dense, and close contact).

 

According to the report, Japan’s National Institute of Infectious Diseases monitors mutant strains in three levels.

The most vigilant is “mutant strains that need to be vigilant”, and the current targets include delta strains.
