Starting from December 25, everyone arriving in Japan from Russia will have to undergo a three-day quarantine. This is reported by TASS, citing a notice published on the website of the Cabinet Secretariat of Japan. This is due to fears of the spread of the Omicron strain.
According to the new rules, all arriving in Japan from Russia will have to pass a test, then spend three days in quarantine, and then pass a second test.
However, on December 22, it was reported that in Osaka, Japan’s second-largest city, omicron was detected in a family of three who had never left the country. The father and mother had already received two doses each of the coronavirus vaccine. All three, including a 10-year-old girl, are currently in the hospital, according to Japan’s Mainichi newspaper. The adults had fever as one of their symptoms.
