    All of what you said is very true. You are not being entitled but rather I feel Japan is just being overly cautious which is doing more harm than good. If they only knew that testing all people twice before and after reaching the border makes it almost impossible for the virus to spread by travel and if they could just implement this type of system then that side of the economy recover. So much money is being lost by closing all borders and something needs to be implemented.

    Thank you for the update. as of last month I’ve been stuck in a foreign country when I was supposed to enter Japan for a job. So I’m watching the news carefully,but there’s so much false information going around it’s hard for me to find out if I can enter or not. please keep the updates I would love to enter as soon as possible.

    Thanks for the update Robert. There’s a lot of fake news and the ambiguity is stressful for those not in the country right now. Hope to see more videos!
