Japan coronavirus panel to call for longer New Year holidays - Kyodo

TOKYO (Reuters) - The Japanese government’s expert panel to combat the coronavirus pandemic plans to propose on Friday extending the New Year holidays by about a week to Jan. 11, Kyodo News reported.

The proposal, to be made at a panel meeting later on Friday, would urge Japanese companies to extend the holidays to reduce the rush among travellers visiting their home towns, Kyodo reported.
