A corona virus

outbreak

was first flagged as a cause for concern in Wuhan, China, on December 31, 2019. The city was quickly locked down in hopes of keeping the virus at bay. virus. Now China's major cities are on lockdown tonight to try to control the spread of a deadly

coronavirus

. Few are aware of the dangers of this deadly virus, including owner Tan and her family, who had traveled from Australia before we began our trip. It was something that had come up in conversations, so we were aware that this was developing in China. I didn't really think it was anything more than, say, a flu or a cold, a seasonal bad thing, so we hadn't had the feeling that the situation was getting serious when the Diamond Princess sailed from Yokohama on January 20. , fewer than 300 cases of kovat 19 had been reported worldwide and only six people were known to have died from the virus.

Some countries along the ship's root were concerned and began taking temperatures of passengers arriving at their ports on January 30 the World Health Organization declares a public health emergency this has not yet raised alarms for the American passenger mark your Genson who is traveling with his wife Jerry and friends mark goldman had a kidney transplant in 2015, which puts him at high risk of developing complications if infected with kovat 19. We were wondering what it was about, we're not too worried yet, but we understand that they are being cautious at the previous port in Okinawa, they did some extra screening for us as well so you were used to that and we just assumed it would be a delay in getting off, we had no idea what was in store for us and we ended up having the cruise ship and its operator Princess Cruises warned that a passenger who recently disembarked in Hong Kong was diagnosed with kovat 19.
The virus could be on board the ship without knowing that passengers are continuing as normal. It is the last night aboard the Diamond Princess. We were a little sad because our vacation was obviously coming to an end. ends and is effective today, before returning to Yokohama, I had mentioned to my husband that I wish my vacation could last much longer and you know I wasn't ready to leave to know that it's fun the night before we got the word. We were reaching out, the four of us were talking over dinner and we asked that same question, we said, Hi, are you guys ready to go home or do you want to, would you like to continue and we all said we're not ready to quit?
We were out and having a good time and we weren't ready to go home, there was some kind of gossip. I don't know if there's any truth to that at the time that there could be a possibility that there was a problem this would be hearing about this copied virus we weren't actually thinking seriously about it despite the rumors going around that an ex passenger was infected with kovat 19 the captain keeps the ship open and the passengers continue with a night of festivities two days after the

diamond

princess

was warned that an outbreak of kovat 19 could be aboard the ship the bridge finally makes an announcement following On orders from both the Japanese government and Princess Cruises captain Armor, a Princess employee for more than 20 years, doubles his speed to return to Yokohama a day earlier than planned dressed in hazmat suits, Japanese medical officials board the ship.
All passengers will be tested for fever and asked about symptoms, but in particular, only some passengers will be tested for the corona virus. The test lasts 18 hours. The ship is still open to the public. I'm fine, Trudi Clement, a Canadian passenger was on board with her husband Steve and he still felt distant from him and things continued as the normal dining rooms were open as if there was no fear on the ship and they were still waiting to get off the ship in the scheduled date. Public health expert Maggie Morris has been studying

infection

s like swine flu and Ebola for more than 25 years.
We had a cruise ship, but for all intents and purposes it was a floating city, the only purpose really is for people to have a holiday, socialize and relax. and this is essentially a semi-enclosed space that they live in and therefore the environment is very conducive to the spread of any communicable disease like code 19, but what we now know about cabin 19 is that it can be transmitted symptomatically if tests are carried out. maybe not as rigorous as it could actually be quite a major procedure, so it's very possible that actually those who seem fine actually got sick soon, on February 5th, the results are in and I remember being in that night , in the dining room, you know, the dining room is usually a hectic, crazy, loud place and it went quiet, everyone was looking at each other, there were some people gasping and we were a little stunned and it was quite an experience ten people have given positive by kovat 19 thousands of passengers are now trapped on board with a virus that no one can contain the diamond princess has spent the last two weeks traveling around Asia but one day before the end of the cruise Captain Armor announces that an outbreak has occurred of corona virus on the ship they take known people have tested positive for a corona virus the diamond princess is now locked up docked in the Japanese port of Yokohama the passengers look over the side of the ship trying to see the 10 infected the passengers removed, the rest of tourists have been ordered to their cabins for 14 days.
The passenger in our tan and his family are in one of the smaller cabins on the ship, so this is our room when you come in the door, there's the hallway. in the cloakroom and this is our area when the captain finally announced the next morning that we were going into quarantine. At first I was shocked and surprised, my mind was racing. I was thinking what's going to happen. We're all stuck here. I'm in a small cabin with no windows and the four of us were going, what are we doing? We'll be stuck here for potentially 14 days.
I had no idea this would come Mary to a chemical analyst and her husband gave you a regular cruise, but this was her first time without windows, but it's just going to be an extended courtesy cruise and we were saying, Oh, it's still going to be the same. . We'll go out to dinner. We can still be okay. We can still see the shows. But then when they said We have to hold our cabins. It's like we're in a prison cell. The Diamond Princess now hosts more than 2,000 passengers, 80% of whom are over 60 years old. The most vulnerable age group took Ovid 19.
The ship has a medical team. on board, but dealing with a highly infectious virus like Ovid 19 makes their task excessively challenging. infectious disease outbreak or not, but ships are not new, they have happened before in the past, you know, including diseases like influenza, diarrheal diseases caused, ignore the norovirus outbreak and you know, even chicken pox, one of the The reasons why infectious disease outbreaks actually occur on board ships is because of the high population density, so a ship is a semi-enclosed space and is also designed so that people can go from one place to another. to another fairly quickly or in a series of corridors, elevators and stairs that are constantly used by hundreds of people.
This is a very serious

infection

that requires a clinical response and the ship really hasn't been able to respond adequately in that way until now. Kovac 19 has spread to more than 20 countries and the death toll is reported to be over 500, but on the ship it appears the outbreak is small the day after the lockdown begins another announcement people initially tested positive passengers remain in a good mood oh we played games we watched movies we watched the news we read we took a lot of naps we were very lucky because our friends were in the cabin next door we were able to open the door to our balconies and we were able to go back and forth between each other's cabins , which in retrospect maybe wasn't the case.
It's not the best idea, but the players gave us a little more room to move, we found that if we don't have a set routine, the day starts to drag on and become long, you know, kind of lethargic. I feel like we would do things like little exercises in between, there was even Zumba on TV that we could follow to do, sometimes we turn that on before you know it, you see it's night and that's pretty much a full day done two days after. there are only 20 infections recorded the Diamond Princess cruise ship publishes a statement saying that they will continue to work with the Japanese authorities the Japanese government also decides that the crew will not be quarantined mainly from the Philippines India and Indonesia the crew is expected to work for at least 13 hours a day going from door to door serving guests, you need a list.
Sri Bhattacharya has been reporting on the Diamond Princess since she docked on February 3, so some crew members were reassigned to various roles to which they were reassigned. help the medical center, they were reassigned to deliver packages, they were reassigned to deliver meals and at some point we don't know where the infection was happening in terms of the interaction, was it the crew that took care of the people?, said the passenger was sick or was it the Passengers who were sick and who were transmitting the infection to the crew one night, a couple of friends we made who were part of the staff came to the door and when I opened the sari, when I opened the door, they were there in robes, masks, gloves and That's when I realized, it's like this is real and we were in the middle of this and how are we going to get out of this?
Pizza teams went door to door. I guess there was a bit of worry, there must not have been. It's easy for them to, you know, keep doing all this work non-stop while they themselves were, you know, under the same threat as us. The crew is afraid. A group of Indian personnel pleads for help from their government. Namaskar we may now have 30. chicken video, we are taking it to a charity based in the Philippines that was inundated with calls from crew members asking for help. Joana ConcepciĆ³n is the president of Mi Beneficiary International, an organization that supports seafarers according to accounts that some of the seafarers first learned about the code without interruptions on the ship directly from their relatives who read the international news.
Crew members we were able to speak with expressed concern and frustration at being forced to continue working. They shared with us the management. We told them that if we refused to continue working that their names would be sent to the company's headquarters in Los Angeles. The team raised posters asking for help one said don't let us get infected the next we would like to go home We know that theThe crew lived in fairly cramped and overcrowded living quarters, so they may have already started to become infected without the cruise ship having received word about when the crew will be quarantined.
Binay Kumar posts another Namaskar video, I mean a multi-diamond princess, a real one the diamond is the proof that she could be a murder danger in general, at least one of the families is fine, oh we, oh yes, my advantage, but not the entire team felt able to express their concerns so publicly for fear of the consequences of talking to a daughter. of a crew member agreed to speak anonymously. I and my brothers would try to make him understand that they have to insist on his rights to his health and safety. They have stopped working while they are asked.
We fear for his life. We also thought my father was there. torn between how he is going to insist that they want to stop working and just be isolated inside the room for their safety and also afraid of losing his job if he insists that they want to stop working three days after the lockdown, another announcement. Finally, the Japanese Ministry of Health modified that an additional 41 people from the specific screening sample supporting the princes tested positive for

coronavirus

as infections increase, so credit the spheres, you know what at first, just do it We were taking it day by day and we were thinking that since we are a little younger and there are strong ones, then it won't be like that. able to touch us at home anyway so no problem but every day he lets me wake up and the captain says for today there are important people who tested positive and then the next day he says for today there are 61 others now.
We looked at ourselves and said what if tomorrow we're next, so it's a different way of looking at Nam. Despite the rise in infections, Japanese authorities insist that keeping passengers on board the ship is the course of action. correct action when there is a shortage. If there is a lot of information, then you know that control measures are slower to implement. There is much speculation about how the virus spreads. We knew it spreads from person to person, possibly through droplets, but others also say it could be transmitted by aerosol, perhaps even fecally. oral, you know, poor hand hygiene, so there's a lot of things, love rumors, a lot of speculation, and that didn't help in terms of, you know, speeding up the response.
At that time there was no place to get almost four thousand people off the ship. Japan was not in a state of emergency and there were no hotels or other public places that could accommodate almost 4,000 people in quarantine. This was no consolation to the thousands of passengers trapped on the ship who expressed their frustration to news organizations around the world. of them stuck here the level of worries and mental stress has reached the maximum now, on February 7, the ship has the second largest outbreak of kovat 19 in the world, people report long delays in getting tested, even after After reporting symptoms David Abel, a 74-year-old British man traveling with his wife, begins documenting his frustrations.
What about all the passengers, as far as I know, none of us have received any kind of health check since the quarantine officers came on board that day before when we were? In Yokohama they have not given us medical checks they have not taken our temperature they have not asked us more questions and we have a cough we have a fever we are taking some medication to lower the temperature that has not happened for days How can the doctors control the health situation of the 2,600 passengers on board? Five days have passed since Japanese authorities forced passengers into confinement.
More and more doctors arrived at the dock, as more than 100 passengers have been confirmed to have the virus, but the worst is yet to come. The Diamond Princess cruise ship has been carrying more than 2,000 passengers on a two-week cruise around Asia the day before the end of the voyage. An outbreak of kovat 19 forced those on board to shut down the ship. detained in the Japanese port of Yokohama, news crews are back there setting up tents again six days after the shutdown and there are now more than one hundred and thirty confirmed cases of kovat 19 aboard the ship out of China that the Diamond Princess houses the eldest.
Information on the number of coronavirus cases in the world has become scarcer and in a few days the captain's regular updates will almost cease. Yes, every day we have an update from the captain and how many people have tested positive and how many are being taken out of the hospital and then we are not recovering better, the updates are getting less and less and we only get this news from our children and from our relatives , do you know that this state of mind and a hundred more people that were mentioned, that is the moment when we know that there has been some kind of limitation now and what we can get from the outside probably to prevent people from panicking.
The captain of the Diamond Princess was very informative even before this virus hit the ship. He would be full of news during the quarantine. I feel like he was under a lot of stress, you could hear it in his voice, he could only tell us so much, the Japanese health authorities were in control eight days after the ship closed and less than a fifth of the those on board have been tested by Kovac 19 the Japanese authorities are taking those who have tested positive to hospitals across the country as the days go by passenger Trudy finds a new way to get information we could see the ambulances from our balcony and every day there were more and We looked at each other, my husband and I, and said: "Well, yesterday there were five, now there are 10 ambulances out there and one day we counted 30 and we couldn't see the passengers put in the ambulances because they had tunnels everywhere, but It was just that every morning you woke up and looked and said what's going to be today?
Every new Kovan 19 case attracts more media and soon our cameras were around the world camped on the dock. I was surprised that it was such big news. At times I felt overwhelmed by the amount of attention we received and there were times when I was glad the internet was gone and we didn't have the time and energy we put into just watching. from the balcony of our room and seeing the media it was amazing for me to see how many people were filming our ship calling passengers for interviews, it was, I realized, this is really big and we are part of the passengers are becoming more and more anxious for those with underlying health problems.
Recipes are starting to run out. A news crew captures a Japanese sign hanging from the side of the ship. He says there is a lack of medicine. Passengers communicate through social networks and soon the hashtag is posted there. Diamond princess is a global trend. on Twitter so we kept in touch with the people on the ship through the internet and social media, but listening to some of them started to get affected and I became positive and just met people who had symptoms and things like that, that It scared me a little. times obviously finally on February 12, seven days after the quarantine began, the Japanese Ministry of Health makes a statement: passengers over 80 years of age and with pre-existing health conditions can finish their quarantine on land, but the requirements lack clarity and passengers are confused at first.
During the second week they offered to take passengers off the ship and they could stay in some type of housing unit, but I think it was primarily aimed at Japanese residents. Ten days since the Diamond Princess docked in Yokohama and only 218 people have been taken. Off the ship despite the long days trapped on board, there are moments of fun for both passengers and crew. Hundreds of passengers have rooms with no windows and no access to fresh air, so they are allowed on deck for an hour a day. Fine art on the cover. the sun and the view are nice, they make the most of every second, my husband in Iowa, even joking with each other, now we really come to understand how our dog feels every time we tell him to walk, walk and that dog will always be yelling like that . now it's our turn I ask my husband is it in our time at that time maybe we'll go now really I'm always looking forward to going out to have to breathe fresh air and see the outside world instead of the four walls of the cabin for the February 15, almost 300 people are infected when we heard that every time someone knocked on our door we looked at each other and said okay, this is the news, this is the letter that tells us They are being removed and have to go into quarantine somewhere in Tokyo or outside of Tokyo, so the fear was there all the time.
After almost a month on board, some good news for the American passengers: their government sent a plane to bring them home, passengers Cheryl and Paul. traveling with his family anxious to get out of his cabin we started calling people to get on buses to go to the airport and we have been in this room on the Diamond Princess for the last 27 days, for the last 12 days we have not set foot I walk out of this door into the hallway, it is the first country to evacuate its citizens to enter the big world, so I have to put my mask on this gentleman, he will give it to the State Department people on both sides and they They will put it on. you on a bus, the bus will take your plane, but for Mark and Jerry, Jurgen s'en suffers a disaster.
Mark, a kidney transplant recipient, is at high risk for contracting kovat 19, so he, along with his wife, were regularly tested for the virus that day. They had to go to the United States, a phone call, we got a call again from the doctor's office and they wanted to come talk to us, which I thought was strange and they knocked on the door and I opened the door and they didn't do it. I didn't speak any English and they gave me a paper that said: fulfill the duty of your test results. We were going to get you off the ship and take you to the hospital and of course I thought they were referring to me because I was the one at risk and but then they realized I realized it wasn't me they were talking about my wife and her.
I had about an hour to pack a very small bag and they took it in an ambulance to a hospital. in Fukushima, four hours away, she is the healthiest person I know, so I couldn't believe it. She actually tested positive. Mark cannot go with her wife and will join her in the United States. His friend Cole has been staying in the next room we feared. for our friend, her husband was not allowed to go with her, so they left him alone in their cabin and we spent many hours without knowing what his condition was, she was calling us from the ambulance, but until he actually arrived at the hospital in Fukushima and he had all the tests we didn't realize that he was out of danger with the virus.
The passengers remaining on the Diamond Princess are pleading with their respective governments to help rescue them even now that we are in quarantine. Oh well, come to our cabin for fondue, it seems like there are more people. We are getting infected by the virus as the days go by, more countries and repatriation flights and more passengers may abandon ship because we know that in a day or two a chartered plane will come to pick us up, so our suitcases are already packed. when we thought carefully and they told us that really for tonight they have to be ready because the pain is already here and that is the time, but we realized that, oh, that's right, all our bags are packed, you are really going to go today Definitely, thank you for all your players, they started taking a photo of our suitcase and singing that we already have our bags packed, we are ready to go but the quarantine doesn't end there.
At first there was no news and then finally the news came that they were going to send a plane, as long as your test was negative you would be allowed to get on that plane and return home where we faced another 14 days of quarantine, but it was worth it just to get back to Canada as some of the passengers boarded their trips home, it was announced. Two lives have been lost in February 2020 and the Diamond Princess has the second largest kovat 19 outbreak in the world. The infection has spread four times faster on the ship than in Wuhan, China, where the first outbreak began.
Owner Tan and her family. I have been living in a windowless room and sleeping in bunk beds for the last month despite minimal contact with the outside world, the virus penetrates your cabin when I received that phone call and the person on the other end of the line was saying: Do you know my daughter tested positive why my mind went blank with that expression on my face because my husband knew immediately that someone had tested positive and all he could ask was who it was and I could barely speak I had to point her out to you already know.
I kind of said it was her. I had to tell the lady on the other end and I had to call her back. I think I broke down a little and got really scared because they were obviously words that weren'tI wanted to listen to hundreds of people. infected from the ship and kovat 19 spreading around the world scientists rushed to learn more about this outbreak renowned Japanese scientist Kentaro Owatta manages to secure passage to the docked ship surprised by what he sees today publishes a video online I entered the cruise ship diamond princess who is bombarded by a large number of copies 19 in session at the moment I looked at the various places inside the ship and it turned out that the cruise was completely inadequate in terms of infection control, but inside Princess Diana, she was so scared that I was so afraid of being copied 19 because there was no way to know where the virus is there was no green zone no red song everywhere you could have viruses and not everyone was happy with it there was not a single professional infection control person within the ship and there was no one in charge of infection trial period as a professional 18 days since the passenger quarantine began a third death two days later a fourth all the deaths so far are Japanese and over 18 thirty-eight days since the Diamond Princess set sail for the first time all remaining passengers disembark after receiving our disembarkation approval this morning when we were packing up it was exciting for us because we were going home and it's a strange feeling to be in a strange land when you know so many things are happening around you and the only thing you can think about is returning home so packing our bags was a release for us it was a good feeling that the Princess cruise gives all passengers a full refund and a free future cruise five Annika millet, why not?
I think Princess Cruises did everything they knew how to do at that time or at this time to help us emotional support mental health eight for anyone who requires it but for the crew their quarantine is just beginning as they embark on another 14 days of isolation it was announced that Two other people have died, a woman from Japan and a Briton. The death toll now stands at six. The crew were afraid as at least one hundred and fifty of them have been infected with the virus. Princess Cruises told the crew that they would receive all the compensation they worked for during the entire quarantine period and many of the crew members, while grateful for this, are concerned that it will not be enough to support their families and children.
It means, given the uncertainties they face now, that they may not be able to return to work, it won't be until March. The first six weeks after the ship sails, the crew along with Captain Gennaro Armor abandon ship. He makes a speech to the crew. The captain is praised for his handling of the crisis while he is tanning along with his daughter Kate, who soon recovers from the virus. making signs in support of the captain, the captain was really reassuring and then we could hear his emotions in his voice and he conveys the nature in the way he talks to us and we felt all that support coming from him, Captain Armor has managed to stay . free of kovat 19 and soon returns home to Italy as the crew and passengers return to their respective 56 countries.
The World Health Organization declares Kovac 19 a global pandemic. At this point it is reported that the death toll worldwide exceeds 4,000. Officials from both the Princess group and the Japanese government allowed the corona virus to spread so aggressively that it infected 712 people. The ship's company says they were receiving instructions from the government on how to impose quarantine measures and how to prevent infections on board. The government says that We are facing an unprecedented situation and the two were trying to prevent further infections on board and trying to save lives with the Corvette 19, of course, as an additional level of complication because this is a new disease caused by a new virus, lots of fear.
There is a lot of uncertainty, so that probably caused some delay in how Japan's health authorities responded to the outbreak. Less than two months after the quarantine ended, it was announced that 14 passengers on the Diamond Princess had died, but I think what this particular infection has shown them. It is that these ships are not really designed and managed to cope with such an infection. I think the most important lesson that has been or will be learned from this is that they should never have actually stayed. on board and being quarantined on board, they actually should have continued and being repatriated would probably have saved more infections and possibly lives despite the outbreak on the Diamond Princess.
The Princess fleet continues sailing. Passengers of the Sun Princess cruise ship are the target of angry locals. Reunion Island is worried the ship will bring ashore 19 undercover the Sun Princess along with three other Princess cruise ships are infected with the virus in total 41 passengers died the Ruby Princess docked in Australia is the worst of them with 21 deaths the Australian government en We are now launching a criminal investigation. So what about the future of cruising in terms of disease control? I think you know the ideal would be if we focused on Covet 19. What we really need is a vaccine and the sooner we get better. the better it is
