Japan to ban entry to people from 73 countries

Mar 31, 2020 15:39 IST

Japan says that it would ban people from more than a third of the world from entering the country to halt the spread of the novel coronavirus. The US is among a list of 73 countries to which the Japanese government also discouraged travel amid the steep global increase in the number of infections and fatalities. Japan raised its travel alert to Level 3 out of a possible 4, over which it advised against travelling to certain territories under any circumstances. The alert was extended on Tuesday to 49 countries.
