Covid-19, Japanese Confindustria asks the government for a Green pass
And the elimination of the quarantine for the vaccinated
Rome, 6 Sept. (askanews) – The Japanese business federation Keidanren, in fact the Japanese confindustria, today presented to Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga a series of proposals to restart economic activity in light of the progress made in the vaccination campaign. Among these, also the idea of eliminating the 14-day quarantine for those who have completed the vaccination process and the adoption of an internal vaccination passport.
Currently, all those arriving in Japan, regardless of whether they have vaccinated or not, must undergo 14 days of isolation.
The proposal comes while in the rest of the world the vaccination passport is used both at borders and to access services within countries. In Japan, however, this tool is currently used to go abroad but not within the country and the government plans to introduce it by the end of the year.
Keidanren also called for the quarantine period for unvaccinated travelers to be reduced to 10 days from the current 14.
