More than 74,000 people have now been infected with the coronavirus. Outside of China the biggest cluster of cases has been aboard the cruise ship the Diamond Princess, which has been in quarantine in the Japanese port of Yokohama for two weeks. Hundreds of passengers who have tested negative for the virus have started leaving the ship and are returning to their home countries. The death toll from the coronavirus has now surpassed 2,000, and the virus has spread to more than 20 countries around the world on five continents.

I have few friends currently living in Japan and when they contacted the government or local hospital to test for Covid-19, they were refused to take a test. This is very dangerous and Japanese government will be punished for not testing their innocent citizens

Japanese known for detailing and accuracy at work, had fallen to the ground on corona. Very lax quarantine done on cruise and berthed more cases.

I don’t understand why all the blame on Japan , when the ship is owned by USA and Britain... It’s not fair to help hundreds of people and did everything Japan could do. and if you still want to criticize Japan, tell me better solution how it could have done for those possible infected people from different countries.

This sad situation should never have developed .... airborne virus plus air con spells disaster. Letting passengers gaily go straight back into their Japanese community is promoting a pandemic. Please will someone somewhere see the reality. Isolate, monitor, stop international travel, forget the economy for a moment, life is our richest commodity.... please respect and act now with honesty and wisdom.

Yes, it's true. It was also found that 23 people left the ship without test and Japan Ministry of Health appologized few days ago but still has no intention of quarantine for those people. Ministry of Health officialy announced they have no plan of running any virus test to doctors, nurses and staff who were working on that ship except MOH staff as of now.

Just remember who to blame ? This ship belongs to GB ! The US company planned this tour. There were already passengers who were infected in HK but no counties want this cruise ship to be handled but Japan ! Japan did your favor using our tax payers money !! But you must remember that the authority to handle this ship was given to GB who actually this ship belongs to! Japan’s hands were tied by two countries GB and The USA ! There could be the better way to handle but who will bring 3700 passengers to release from the ship to roam around Tokyo ? Thanks 🙏to Japan to handle this ship ! GB should take some responsibility and the US tour company who planned this tour ! DO NOT BLAME JAPAN PLZ 👿😡‼️

I don't think the world is blaming Japan for what they did on that ship. However you may want to see the fact that they let almost 1000 people off the ship without proper quarantine...and most of them took public transport. Not to mention, 1 tested positive and 23 people were not even tested.

Japanese government deliberately reduces coronavirus testing for fear of impact on the Olympics. The test will reveal that there are many patients. Actually, many people in Japan are complaining of unexplained pneumonia. But the government does not try to test. Japanese people are suffering very much because of government. Sorry for my poor English. But unless I tell this fact to the world, the Japanese government will not work.

I saw many people tweeting about being refused for the virus test in Japan(#検査拒否). 9 year old boy running 38+ fever & terrible cough more than 4 days but his mother is still being refused for a test and there isn't much hospitals can do. That is so sad. I am following the official announcement by Ministry of Health, Japan but the number tested so far is like 1,700....way too low compared to Korea and Singapore. Korea has done like over 30,000 tests. What is wrong with Japanese government? It is so corrupted and I feel sorry for you.

Cruise ship air ventilation does not have flirtation in every single room. Being stuck in such air ventilation, it is only waiting to be infected. A country as big as japan cannot find a quarantine zone for 600 passenger prove how degraded japan has become.

How many people remain aboard the Diamond Princess as of February 24th? I've been trying for 7 days to figure this out no one mentions it although the lady in this video said several thousand the second guess it started with Sirius 700 in about 700 or left so there's 3,000 left in my opinion

They've predicted several ways this bit is ends. 1) it goes away during summer when the weather is more humid then returns in winter 2) it will continue until everyone infected as been quarantined and it passes through 3) they manage to make a vaccine (which is unlikely as it's similar to other cold-related viruses where there is no way to cure it.. only treat symtoms.

This is where the United States military provides critical support. Military bases are where Americans are quarantined and taken care of because every base is like a little self sufficient city and the government can put in place controls to manage the situation. Japan doesn't have a military just a self defense force. They can't have a military based on the agreement signed after WW2.

RioTube Hace un mes
No country has been “successful “ on this. Its not that Japan failed on quarantine of ppl on the ship, the only thing Japan could try that point was to keep infected ppl away from landing. Ppl on the ship had already been exposed to the environment full of virus for days. To see more and more ppl tested positive while the were on the ship was EXPECTED. And of course they would release the ppl after two weeks quarantine, why would they quarantine those thousands of ppl again? Where is such a place to hold thousands of ppl? And whats the point of keeping them with the same members in a same place for another two weeks again? When will it end??
Will Hace un mes
The number afterwards will tell you how many people was infected during this so called QUARANTINE. If they dont have the capacity to hold thousands of people, at least arrange the relocation step by step. THE MOVE DONE BY JAPANESE GOVERMENT SHOWS THEY HAVE CLEARLY NO COMPASSION FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER. AND ADMIT THAT, YOUR GOVERNMENT IS DUMB. And you, who will BENEFIT from that on your own, good luck my Japanese friend.

Where was the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION ...WHO... when this was all going down point the finger at the organisation that’s suppose to deal with this sort of situation. This virus will target the weak , elderly and very young. It’s still mutating they have well underestimated its incubation period. 1 month minimal but 48 days to be on the safe side. This virus will develop into a bleeding problem .... designed to mix with the Ebola??????? Shame on you people who work for WHO . STOP-white washing what’s really going on and playing dumb

The issue really lies in NOT ALL FACTS ABOUT THE VIRUS IS KNOWN. NO research proves how and why the virus is spreading soo quickly. The Chinese Government has now confirmed that the incubation period is much longer than the initial 14 days (a 70yr old man was diagnosed after 27 days of exposure to the virus). These factors were NOT known at the time, because the virus is fairly new. Besides the Chinese Government kept the initial outbreak quiet until it had already spread fairly wide.

Japanese people are required formal perfection. High-level officials near the center of the country and high court lawyers are required even more formal perfection. And they get to the post without knowing any frontline job. So when a serious incident occurs, they intervene, fail to respond, and even hide it. Because no small mistake is tolerated to protect their post. So they have to make sure there were no mistakes. For the same reason, the indictment rate is 98% and it is full of false charges, and the retrial system is not functioning.
