Amid growing controversy over the Diamond Princess ship at the port of Yokohama, Japan. This quarantined is complete and hundreds of passengers, who were not infected with coronavirus, are returning home.
However, criticism and controversy over Japan’s role in tackling the outbreak of coronavirus are increasing. Diamond Princess, a Japanese health expert who visited the ship in which hundreds of people were infected with coronavirus, said the ship’s condition was “very chaotic”.
So far eventually 621 passengers and crew of the Diamond Princess have been infected with the Covid-19 virus. Two Japanese passenger death after treatment. It is said that this is the highest number of cases of coronavirus infection in a single place outside of China. The ship had a total of 3,700 passengers. The ship has been anchored in Yokohama, Japan for about two weeks. Several countries have already removed their citizens from the ship as the rate of coronavirus infection increases. A few days ago, hundreds of US citizens were taken back to the United States by ship, and they were quarantined there.

US officials meanwhile, say the measures taken to prevent the virus ‘may not be enough’. At the same time, the passengers of the Diamond Princess described how difficult the situation was when they were stary on the ship.
British passengers on the ship have been instructed to stay aboard by the UK Foreign Ministry, and have been told that they will be flown by Sunday. A British couple aboard the ship, which routinely sent journalists using social media, said on Wednesday that both of them had coronaviruses detected in the test. After returning their passengers from the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK, they will be kept in quarantine for 14 days.
Experts have questioned the effectiveness of the ship’s actions since the ship’s passengers were infected with coronavirus despite the arrangement of quarantine at the Diamond Princess. Health expert Kentaro Iwata, a professor of infectious diseases at Kobe University in Japan, inspected the ship, saying that the measures taken on the ship were “absolutely insufficient to countered a virus attack.” After posting the ship, he published a video on YouTube mentioning that he saw authorities unable to absolutely separate those who had now not been infected.
He mentioned a few things:
• The ship’s green area, which is free of infection and the virus-infected Red Zone – is where passengers and crew travel freely in two places.
• Passengers ate together and the living quarters, which were also accommodated
• No one, not even medical staff, wore separate clothing to prevent bacterial infection
• None of the occupational disease specialists was onboard.
In the video, he says he felt much safer when he worked to prevent the Ebola outbreak in Africa. Professor Kentaro Iwata commented that the ship’s passengers began to suffer massive coronavirus despite quarantine due to these restrictions.
