99 more coronavirus cases confirmed in Japanese cruise

99 more coronavirus cases confirmed in Japanese cruise”

The couple has been quarantined this month on Princess Cruises' Diamond Princess cruise ship docked off the Port of Yokohama.

The US passengers were taken to either Travis Air Force Base in California or Joint Base San Antonio in Texas, and they will remain under quarantine for an additional 14 days.

Two flights took off from Japan-one headed to a military base in Texas, the other to Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield. There have been more than 71,204 cases of the virus recorded worldwide.

"And this guy who was down below us said it's taking Americans off the ship and I said, 'I'm an American, '" said Paul Molesky.

The U.S. said it arranged the evacuation because people on the Diamond Princess were at a high risk of exposure to the virus.

A day before 328 Americans were to be whisked away from a contaminated cruise ship in Japan, the US Embassy in Tokyo told passengers that no one infected with the coronavirus would be allowed to board charter flights to the United States.

The United States government already evacuated its citizens from the cruise ship after 40 of them tested positive for the new strain of coronavirus, which has so far mostly affected China.

On Sunday, Anthony Fauci, Director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The Washington Post that 44 Americans on the ship had tested positive for the virus. Once they arrived in the U.S., they were to be quarantined for 14 days. They include 99 cases which were confirmed yesterday, sparking anguish from those trapped on board, who have criticised the UK Government for being slow to act.

The quarantined passengers who were earlier found to be sick with the virus have been hospitalized in Japan.

When asked about the conditions on the ship, Smith said, "Princess has done a wonderful job of providing the conditions for a quarantine".

The U.S. had previously confirmed 15 cases of coronavirus in the country.

The U.S. government, which had been telling the American citizens to wait out their quarantine on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, reversed itself after 355 people on the ship became infected with the coronavirus.

Cheryl and Paul Molesky, who were on the Diamond Princess ship.

She sent The Associated Press news agency a video of her and her husband boarding the plane with other Americans.

The number of people infected globally stands at 68,500, with 1,770 deaths in China.

He said the American health officials who visited their room was apparently surprised that the couple had chose to stay, and wished them luck.

Yesterday the Foreign Office said that "all options" were being urgently considered, to guarantee the safety of those on board.

"That did get to me a bit".

"We've kept to ourselves, we've made sure we've followed all the rules of quarantine, we've showed no symptoms, are temperatures have been fine so we're just going through the final step which is to be sampled and wait to see if our test results come up negative and then we're done".
