Japan PM asks to compile steps for school reopening urgently

TOKYO, March 20 (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe issued instructions at a coronavirus taskforce meeting to compile concrete steps urgently to reopen schools as a new school year starts in April in Japan, Jiji news agency reported on Friday.

Abe last month asked Japan’s entire school system, from elementary to high schools, to close until spring break late in March to help contain the coronavirus outbreak. (Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka; Editing by Toby Chopra)
