Monday, the U.S. Department of State issued a no travel advisory, warning people not to travel to Japan, citing a “very high” level of COVID-19 there. The warning also stated that there are also restrictions in place which affect U.S. citizens’ entry into Japan. 

According to the website, Japan’s government has expanded their national state of emergency declaration to a list of localities across the country including in Tokyo. 

As the Associated Press reported Monday, Japan has mobilized military doctors and nurses, having them administer vaccines to elderly people in Tokyo and Osaka as the government is desperately trying to accelerate its vaccination rollout, to curb coronavirus infections just two months before hosting the Olympics.
