Japan expands entry restrictions to virus-hit Zhejiang

Business hub and home to Alibaba has third-highest number of cases

TOKYO -- The Japanese government decided Tuesday to bar entry to travelers from Zhejiang Province, tightening its entry restrictions in light of the widening reach of the new coronavirus.

Foreign nationals who have been in Zhejiang within 14 days of arrival in Japan, or who hold a passport issued in the province, will be denied entry. This follows an earlier decision to ban travelers from Hubei Province, the epicenter of the outbreak.
