Japan's reopening is off to a rocky start as a traveller from Thailand has tested positive for Covid-19.
The Japan Times reported that the Thai tourist, who was part of a tour group travelling in Oita Prefecture, complained of a sore throat on May 30. The person tested positive for Covid-19, and the tour was subsequently cancelled.
The individual is expected to quarantine in a repurposed facility, and three close contacts are in isolation at a separate hotel after testing negative on ART tests.
