Politics Society

The Japanese government on Wednesday eased its travel warning over the coronavirus pandemic for 55 countries and regions including Indonesia and the Philippines, and is no longer requesting that residents in Japan refrain from nonessential trips to those nations.

The Foreign Ministry said it had lowered its travel advisories for those areas from the second-lowest Level 2 on its four-point scale to Level 1, which advises Japanese nationals traveling to those regions to “stay fully alert.”
