The State Department will evacuate U.S. citizens and their families on the Diamond Princess cruise ship quarantined for coronavirus, a CDC official said
The U.S. is preparing to evacuate American citizens from aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship, the site of the biggest outbreak of the novel coronavirus outside China.firstname.lastname@example.org Feb. 14, 2020 9:20 pm ET TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.—The U.S. government is preparing to evacuate American citizens from aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship, the site of the biggest outbreak of the novel coronavirus outside China, according to an official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 380 Americans and their families on the ship, docked in Yokohama, Japan, will be offered seats on two State Department-organized planes flying back to the U.S., said Henry Walke, director of the CDC’s Division of Preparedness and Emerging...

Must’ve been a Trump Hotel gold level club member on board. Maybe they can get a job with ODNI now. Latest Diamond Princess report from Prof. Iwata, an infectious disease specialist at Kobe University. Prof. Kentaro Iwata, Divison of Infectious Disease Therapeutics, Kobe University: Diamond Princess is COVID-19 mill. How I got in the ship and was removed from it within one day.
Greeeeaaaaaatttt 🙄 please bring home more infected with the virus. Nothing good will come of this. For anyone else considering traveling there, do so at your own risk. Don’t want to pay for another rescue for u while I’m home working. 陽性の人も症状出てる人も連れて帰って。 それをしないならかかった医療費出して。 イギリス船籍、運営はアメリカの会社の船なのに、人道的立場から支援したとはいえなんで批判も負担も押し付けるの。
日本に来てくれた外国人に申し訳ない。 I apologize as a Japanese.I'm sorry Amazing USA evacuations past , present & future : Slow...slow....slow...wtf dumbasses big mistake It’s a good decision. Imagine how frustrated the passengers may feel, being trapped in their cabins without being tested nor properly informed. The Jpn govt is too confused and unreliable. I hope other governments will also act as soon as possible.
'Six days to go:' As coronavirus tears through Princess Cruise ship, Japanese officials evacuate vulnerable passengersThe decision comes as the company confirmed Thursday 44 new cases of the coronavirus on the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship. Good news for them, what a nightmare. I don't think 'COVID-19 has now infected . . .' is correct usage - the virus (SARS-CoV-2) is what infects people. COVID-2 is the disease they get from the infection. (Thanks for the confusion WHO and ICTV!).
JustinTrudeau take note of what leadership really looks like. realDonaldTrump puts Americans first, not Iran killers or African rapists. Just saying. TrudeauWorstPM FoxNews 🆘🆘🆘🆘🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 In new tragic disease, there is no correct answer. Bad idea, what's this? Embrace the spreading Let’s tell the WHOLE STORY that the US media does not do. Each evacuee is to sign a promissory note and reimburse the US government for the evacuation costs. Remember that everything in the US is monetised including US citizenship!
CDC site (2-15-20): 'Americans returned by flights chartered by State Department will be subject to a 14-day, federal quarantine & be housed at two existing federal quarantine sites for repatriated travelers' -Travis Air Force Base -Joint Base San Antonio 新型コロナウィルス coronavirus このクルーズを主催する運営会社🇺🇸と船籍を登録しているイギリス🇬🇧が責任を持って事態の対処に当たるべき。 日本政府は領海への侵入を拒否することもできたが人道的見地からthis恐ろしい未知の病原体と格闘している。 どうか、それを理解してくださいね。😞
Who's paying for these 'chartered flights'? I wonder, does the health system is losing money by not being able to bill those U.S. Citizens in the cruise ships? chhcalling can you please use your influence to help David and Sally Abel as well as all their fellow UK citizens get airlifted off the ship so they can get quarantined or treatment at home? They all feel forgotten and abandoned. The UK has neglected their own citizens.
Can we stop all air travel now please
During the time of Lunar New Year, the Spring festival of China, a deadly outbreak of the coronavirus has emerged in the city of Wuhan. The question then arises,'What is the coronavirus? How dangerous is it?.' Facts Coronavirus Health Epidemic On December 31, 2019, the first case of Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was reported. By mid-February 2020, it reached a mild-pandemic level that had killed more than 1,000 people in China and the world over. Facts CoronavirusOutbreak mercury lucky ighojiroro live stream
Who the hell takes a cruise in Japan? Are you that lame. This is a horrible idea! Furthermore, they’re moving them to Riverside California, where poor people with no voice live! Why not send them to Beverly Hills or Newport Beach Oh no, of course not! Thank the Lord...they need to be quarantined and evaluated by the CDC.
I think this is an appropriate course of action especially with them undergoing another 14 day quarantine back in the US. Being on this ship longer is actually what might put them at further risk for developing coronavirus. It’s a British ship not a US registered ship This is good news for those stranded, but will they go directly to a hospital to get checked out?
This is great news. Americans are happy to be rescued. Because, I feel like the chain of infection is broken in the Diamond Princess. I hope that the rescued people do not develop COVID19 during US quarantine. 日本のマスコミ、とくにテレビは狂った犬のようにヒステリックになっていて、日本人が自分の健康を守れるための情報を冷静に与えることができていない。海外メディアの日本特派員は、彼らの言っていることを鵜呑みにして本国に伝え、ますます日本人を苦しめているのではないか？同盟国に対して酷い。
👊🏽👍🏽🇺🇸👏🏽👏🏽 thank God for 🇺🇸 expatlife SocialismKills nightmare and thank God for PresidentTrump 日本の対応は、船の中の3700人には多少の我慢を強いても船の外の50億人に拡げることを防ぎたい、というものだったのではないのか？感染力も重症化率も不明で検査体制もできていなかった時期の対応を「後出しジャンケン」で悪し様に批判して、正義の味方のように今頃になって自国民を救出に来るのか？
44 more people just tested positive for coronavirus on the Diamond Princess cruise shipAnother 44 people have tested positive for coronavirus aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship docked in Yokohama, Japan's health minister says. This brings the total number of cases on the ship to 219 -- the largest outbreak of the virus outside China. This video is more important Trump needs to be removed from office Why can't the next one be Trump?
RedDragonFly19 Can’t everyone just take their own? 2 things: 1. I’m happy for them, that’s got to be hellish 2. How long before the number of infections rises dramatically in the US because of this In California please 🙏🏻 I hope other country will follow. They should evacuate their own people. It's become obvious that qaurintine on the ship isn't working . It's a matter of time before they catch it. Go get them and qaurantine them properly here and for 3-4 weeks at least . Their families must be scared beyond belief
About damn time. This is why the USA is hands down the best country in the world Why not send them to some isolated island so they cant spread the illness? Hell no!! Keep those Americans on that boat until the virus is eradicated from the boat. Y’all are potentially bringing an outbreak back very late action.why do other counties do same thing. bring them back to their home countries.
Diamond Princess cruise passenger speaks out on coronavirus quarantine: 'It's heartbreaking'Sarah Arana, a quarantined passenger onboard Diamond Princess, told Yahoo Finance that those on board 'don't know what's happening.'
If they are under quarantine why not take them off when quarantine is over? Proud to be an American!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 It is quite reasonable measure. Our Japanese government seems to be underestimating the influence of new Wuhan Corona Virus WuhanCoronavirus nCoV2019 . The virus is attacking human successfully so far. It is well functionning attack gear if it is assumed arrtificially made.
Leave them on there please. About time we take care of our own, test our own and get them out and away from an incubator for the virus. Aren’t we suppose to separate the sick from the healthy. Diamond Princess is a British company and a US company cruise ship. The cruise ship calls at Japan, and the corresponding Japan is wonderful. Other countries should thank, not criticize. You should pick up your citizens early. We should thank and pay for Japan's support.
Because 3 letter agencies want to take samples of corona virus for future biological warfare The updated incubation people reported by Chinese health officials is 24 days. Trump just found out he has some voters on board... can't lose any...
Coronavirus live updates: Princess Cruises guests allowed to leave ship, cases soar above 60,300The total number of cases climbed above 60,000 after China changed the way it counts confirmed infections while deaths soared to at least 1,369.
As we should. “No man left behind...” This is WAR Keep them all on that ship and port elsewhere They need to be quarantined! Really; they don’t care they that will expose Americans who are in America, to a deadly virus. Quarantine means no one breaks a quarantine until it is deemed safe. This is our Government showing their ignorance.
That’s fine as long as they do the right thing and properly quarantine them for an adequate period of time It doesn’t feel like all of America is taking this shit seriously First of all, it is not a Japanese ship. A British ship operated by a US company. Japan accepted humanely. As a result, Japan is becoming a major infected country. How are the United States and the United Kingdom responsible?
This action indicates U.S. might think that Japan is no longer worthy of reliance in this situation. Keep them on the boat 政府の対応が遅い。自分がいつ感染してしまうか怖い。今日は近くの病院で感染者が出た。 中国人やマスクを買い占めて中国に送る日本人、それに金を稼ごうとする転売屋のせいで日本人にマスクが届かない。 コロナに感染してる人達が高熱を出しているのに外に出回っている。 怖い。感染したくない。 Be well China. Be well Japan Be well S Korea Be well Europe Be well America Be well N Korea, this worries me most.
Newlyweds stuck aboard quarantined ship on Valentine's Day: 'This is our honeymoon'Tyler and Rachel Torres, a newlywed couple from Texas, said they have a date night on the quarantined Diamond Princess as they await the chance to disembark the ship. 😂😂🤣🤣 Dinner on the Lido Deck Wrap it before you tap it
Why ? Trump will evacuate Americans that can afford fancy cruises that may be sick But He Throws paper towel at poor citizens in PR. ? djttwistedpriorities Bringing the virus back here, hate to break it to ya, but it's already here. Has been for weeks. 5 MILLION people fled Wuhan before the Mayor shut the city down. And air travel, in & out, continued for over week before it was officially banned.
This is good news for those on the ship & their loved ones worried about them. I believe the U.S. tries to take care of our own, bc we ARE awesome like that! And of course they'll go into quarantine, probably the new, recommended 24-day quarantine. As far as the concern about... Hm. The US response is too slow
So glad to hear this! Why would CDCgov allow this? Only risk spreading the virus more there are quarantines in effect for a very good reason. WhiteHouse WHO Why does everyone think they are above following guidelines and rules put in place when stuff likw this happens. 遅いわ！もっと早よ連れて帰れ！ . 僕の事も救って下さい、お願いします。
Well I certainly hope they keep them quarantined after release as well.. not in New England. San Diego let a patient leave while infected... how does that even happen😳 Yeah that's right, bring our boys home. They served our country well. Well done I don’t speak English ,but I want to tell you something. Why do you criticize Japan? Japanese government provides passenger with medical treatment and grocery. I’m sad because Japanese people are bud guys!
It’s really not that heroic. They are evacuating the healthy ones and leaving the 24 poor sick Americans on the boat to suffer. Not taking these guys to hospital or offering medical treatment. and this is how it spreads to all of us. smh そうして欲しい！早く逃げて欲しい！ 日本は危ない！🇺🇸 ついでにうちも行きたい😭 アメリカさすが we’re all going to die, America will be the death of us
I hope US made a decision earlier so the passengers do not need to go through mandatory quarantine again. However they must be thankful to be back. Hope all other countries will evacuate their citizens ASAP. Japan has been trying their best but unfortunately too many people.
That’s it, America. Look after yourselves again, spread the virus. 良かった良かった。 アメリカ凄い❣️自国の人を救えるってまさにヒーロー these lot must have a cure, surely they musta contracted it by now? It would be a terrible mistake. A cruise ship doesn't even have the capacity to implement isolation or quarantine protocols. And you want to get people out of there? You will spread that disease like brushfire. Don't you know what fomites are? What if the disease mutates?
These are perilous times. Trust the process will be expedited ASAP. Yet they won't send a murderer back to face the sentence she deserves. I'm sure you had to explain to Trump why we should get them. 日本を批判する多数の海外メディアがあります。 しかし、この船は日本の船ではありません。 米国の会社の船では？日本で様子見させたのか？ Fuck no!! Leave them there!!!
Seems pretty fucken stupid unless those citizens have been cleared from quarrintine It is sunny now, so according to trump, that should take care of it. 🙏 this is problem. Some people? U.S. left American who get symptom? We requested to help,but U.S.declined it before a few weeks! U.S.pushes the sick people on Japan? why didn’t each country try to help their people immediately!? We aren’t perfect.But Don't complain if you guys leave it to us!
Actually I going to make a YouTube video regarding the stupid people who are trying to bring the virus to the own countries excellent idea! ☺️👌💯😊yeah! Pretty soon in my account 😉📽📺 in how to get exterminated ASAP!!! ⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️⚰️🙄 Very good news. Thank you! 👏 However, American passengers with fever and cough symptoms are not allowed on the plane. Symptoms may get worse in the airplane. It's an inevitable concern.
It took the US quite a while. What about other citizens? 自分の国の国民は自分で助けましょうね。 それが出来ないなら黙ってな。 最初からアメリカ政府が動くべきだった。 横浜だったら横須賀の米軍基地からヘリでも出して助けに行くべきだろうが。 日本の善意に漬け込んであわよくば日本の資金や医療資源で事を済ませようって魂胆だったんだろどうせ。 お前らアメリカに日本のクルーズ船対応を批判する資格はねえよ。 WSJ will not show Americans love!
やれるんならもっと早くやれや go ahead please. Japanese government isn’t doing anything honestly I think they’re just waiting for others to respond like this Way to go! Let’s bring the virus 🦠 ⚰️💀🙄here in America great idea! people are extremely unaware of what’s happening in Wuhan yet the think they can handle watching their families potentially catching the deadly virus and dying! Unreal

じゃコロナウイルスに感染している米国人も一緒に連れて帰ってほしい。 コロナウイルスに感染している米国人は日本に置き去りにして帰るのはおかしい。何を正義ぶっているんだ？コロナウイルスに感染している米国人も含めてみんな連れて帰れよ。 About time!!
Shouldnt we wait till quarantine is done? Yeah now that we make sure are well infected let’s bring them over!!! 🙄🦠💀💀💀⚰️⚰️⚰️ welll done let’s make sure we keep spreading this virus in the usa 🇺🇸🦠⚰️🙄 Do we have to? (アメリカとイギリスの)船ごと引きとってください。 But... what if they are sick? はよ船事持って帰れよ。 クソ欧米人どもが。 都合のいい時だけ日本を利用するアメリカ人。 こうゆう人種は大嫌いだよ。 はよアメリカへ帰れ！
What is to happen with those not permitted to travel, those with fever, cough etc? Could they not be transported on another flight? Thank goodness! It's about time 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Not good for those running from the law. Bring them to Mar-A-Lago. finally... they will get sick if they stay longer.. this cruise ship quaratine is so wrong. they need to be evacuated. What is your source ? My mom is on the ship and no one else can confirm this information. The logic in this article is misguided and not logical. Please let us know as this one article is starting to get those onboard excited...and yet I think it’s false information. ?
🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙇♂️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙇♂️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 無症状の人もいるわけだし、飛行機内で感染が広がらないか心配です。 世話をされる方の、完全防護の事も心配です。 コロナウイルス は死滅するまでに9日。という中国からの報告もありました。間違いなら教えて下さい。 ダイヤモンドプリンセス CoronavirusOutbreak Yeah, extract and house your own... Regardless of if they're infected Good. They are all just sitting ducks on that ship. Hopefully they can be taken somewhere where they can be better quarantined from us and each other so that the virus stops spreading among them.
Now this is showing ethics and solidarity w your kin! Glad they’re finally coming home! CDCgov realDonaldTrump SenatorMenendez SenTomCotton SenBooker WHO DrTedros How many days passed?
Floating Petri dishes Naw. Leave them on the boat. That's the great correct decision! Finally! Thank you America 🙏 🇺🇸 Japanese government alone can’t handle this problem. I hope other countries follow the American move and hope everyone is ok. I know y’all ain’t bringing em back here Fk no! Evacuees will arrive at Travis AFB/ Sacramento, Calif., where they will undergo additional health screenings... Some will remain at Travis for mandatory quarantine, which will likely be 14 days, he said. Others may be moved to Lackland AFB..San Antonio to quarantine.
Unfortunately infected passengers will not be able to take flights home according to US authorities. Keep them there! No chances! Surely putting them all together on planes will only increase the risk of infection?
It’s about time. What took so long? I wonder why the American ship owner hadn’t decided to go back to American territory when it was happened.. the cruise to Alaska, for example, take only a few days from Yokohama. And all the responsibilities are dumped on Japanese government instead of taking by himself
Bad idea THIS. IS. AMERICA!!! Why are we exceptional? BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT OUR CITIZENS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!!!! 🇺🇸 LadyPost1 marklevinshow GordonGChang Trinalized Sombre99701417 I don’t think they know what quarantine means. White privilege doesn’t keep you from getting a virus. 🙄 And where are they going to go? Hopefully into quarantine somewhere else. howvirusesspread
遅い。もっと早く迎えに来るべきだった。 陽性の米国人はいるのかな？ どうするんだろう。 まさか、検疫期間切れまで待ってたわけではないよね？ DX what about the others Leave them fucking there man. Jesus During the time of Lunar New Year, the Spring festival of China, a deadly outbreak of the coronavirus has emerged in the city of Wuhan. The question then arises,'What is the coronavirus? How dangerous is it?.' Facts Coronavirus Health Epidemic
Oof y’all better be quarantining them when they back to the US as well. 遅い。もっと早く迎えに来るべきだった。 陽性の米国人はどうするんだろう。 Place them in SF Pelosi's district. Some. But not all. Guess which ones? Makes complete sense since it’s airborne and the incubation period is over 20 days. Who is making these dumb ass decisions?
morgfair To where? That would be awesome except the CDC has already bumbled the current 800 in quarantine so bad they had to start a petition for better oversight! 🤦🏻♀️ Good. About time. Bring them home. Japan is a child abduction nation. The Japanese government does not think of anyone else for its own benefit.
Corresponding to the Abe administration's too severe new corona! 'It costs money' and concealed the spread of domestic infection without introducing private test kits The Abe administration is full of scandals and is escaping responsibility. good decision, but wanted to start earlier. ALSO we admire US CDC style to fight against the COVID-19.
How will they know if they’re in the clear? Haven’t some people shown no symptoms for as long as 14 days. Didn’t one guy get released over a cold just to go back to the doctors 3 days later to find out it was the coronavirus ? this is awesome news i do hope everyone leaves the ship sooner than later and receives the medical care needed
Nope. That's alright. America First means we don't make everyone else sick. dont worry everyone Trump and Pompeo got this Great move US! Classic American move Finally!! Who was the genius morgfair And then what? Quarantine them?
Finally! This is exciting! Maybe it will wipe out all republicans. A man can dream can't he? Lmao! Send the sick ones to Trumps towers! About damn time!! Wonderful! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 I hope everyone can get back to their country Finally, wish everyone all the best . Don’t take the evacuation offer. Those Americans will get billed later.
Good news they all need to come home As a Japanese person living near Yokohama, I am relieved to hear this. We need help from other countries since this isn’t a Japanese ship. I especially wish the UK would follow - it’s their ship. Oh fun, so are they being screened first though? Asking for a friend
Good idea. Incubation period is now 24 days so let’s hope they do that Finally! The StateDept and WhiteHouse need to step up and focus on protecting our country from a virus that can kill more people than illegal immigrants! Stay safe 🤍 I’m guessing the evacuees will have to pay for their flight home? Gladto here they are going to be able to come home. Sorry it took so long for this to happen.
This makes me proud to be an American Get all Australian people all so not just the American This type of thing might get expensive Can we afford $4T Fed Balance sheet Plus Dealing with Corona Virus And $23T in Debt Asking for 363M friends 😉 Its about time, bring them home and hook them up with some remdesivir!
I'm so glad! Even if they have to stay in quarantine, at least they'll be back in America and off that floating plague trap Corona is not the only virus, frequently many virus appeared ...so illness will come in many forms..
It’s about time! Why are still going on cruises at this time? DiamondPrincessQuaratine 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 Well that's enough to start a war. It’s about freaking time. About time. It should have been done a while ago. It’s about time! '... SOME Americans'😲🤔 Remember, take care of and evacuate illegals first, then get around to the Americans later. Just like they do in California
Why isn't Australia doing likewise
I think you will find only one person left on board, and a huge pile of bones someplace by now. About time...US Embassy told quarantined US passenger this wasn’t possible because it was a different “protocol” truestory diamondprincessquarantine In the first place, Japan is slandered by foreign countries because of this troublesome cruise ship. The Japanese government has no obligation to help passengers from other countries. The passenger's home country should be actively involved.
FINALLY!!!! US should have decided much earlier than now but better than never. Japanese are really happy that US gov pick up citizens to take off the burdens that Japan has been receiving from the American ship. Russia, Israel and Korea who criticized Japan must do the same. About dang time. Yes certainly, this’s a good action..
state will put them on a slow boat to china Does SecPompeo know? When?
