(Update) Japan Advises against All Nonessential Travel Abroad

(Update) Japan Advises against All Nonessential Travel Abroad

   Tokyo, March 25 (Jiji Press)--Japan advised its people on Wednesday to refrain from nonessential travel to anywhere in the world amid the ongoing global spread of the novel coronavirus.
   The Foreign Ministry raised its travel alert for the entire world to level 2 for the first time ever.
   The move comes as many countries are tightening border controls to prevent transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
   "If you leave Japan now, you may be unable to return home, because of measures (implemented by other countries) against the new coronavirus," a senior ministry official said.
   In Peru, about 230 Japanese travelers are now stranded, after the Latin American country closed its borders in the fight against the coronavirus. Similar cases are happening recently in other countries as well, according to the ministry.
