Japanese Education Minister Koichi Hajioda said on Friday that the government is asking children to stay in their homes after taking a decision to close primary, secondary and secondary schools in the country for about a month, due to concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus.

“We request the cooperation of the relevant ministries and agencies so that students remain in their homes and do not get out of them unless when necessary,”

The Japanese Education Minister’s statement came in response to the Ministry of Education’s official request for all primary, middle and secondary schools in the country to close its doors next Monday, several weeks before the start of the spring break in late March, as a step to contain the spread of the virus that causes pneumonia.
The spring break usually ends in early April, before the start of the new school year in Japan.

Hajioda added that the Japanese government made this decision based on the experts ’warning that schools are at a high risk of collective infection. Accordingly, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced yesterday the plan to close schools at a government working group meeting on combating the virus.

The move has caused confusion among teachers, students and parents of Amorhamco, who say they have not had time to prepare for the unexpected holiday.

In a related context, Abe said that he would ask companies to facilitate workers’ obtaining paid vacations, adding that the government is studying ways to deal with part-time workers whose income will decrease during the period when they cannot work due to the need to care for children.

It is noteworthy that the “Corona” virus can infect animals and humans and cause a group of diseases that range from common cold to severe ones such as those caused by acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
