SEOUL, South Korea – Japan and South Korea began enforcing austerity restrictions on worries about a new virus outbreak on Monday, breaking relations between the two countries. Conflict looms over trade and war history.



Tokyo has suspended its visa waiver program for South Koreans and began asking them to stay in designated locations for two weeks and denied using public transportation.

In addition, it allows flights from Korea to land only in Narita Airport near Tokyo and Osaka's Kansai airport.

In response to Tokyo's entry restrictions, Seoul stopped a 90-day visa-free entry program for Japanese nationals on Monday, the law also set out special entry procedures that require residents. Japan checks air temperature, health records and other documents at the airport. By: Chhouk Bora
