UPDATE: At Least 355 People (+70 NEW) Positive Aboard Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. US Begins Evacuating 380 Americans From Ship. [LIVE FEED]
LIVE:



The Diamond Princess:

Operated by Princess Cruises, the Diamond Princess has 2,666 guests and 1,045 crew.
It has been docked in Japan's Yokohama port since February 4 after dozens of people became infected with the virus.
So far at least 219 people (including five crew members) have tested positive for the coronavirus onboard after 44 more people were confirmed on Thursday.
It's the largest outbreak outside of mainland China.
Those who have tested positive are taken off the ship to hospitals, but passengers onboard must stay in a 14-day quarantine.
The quarantine is expected to end on February 19.
Passengers are confined to their rooms and allowed on deck for a limited time.
Crew members continue to work and one worker told CNN she fears the crew are at greater risk of being exposed to the outbreak because they are not being quarantined in the same way as the passengers.
Captain Stefano Ravera said everyone over the age of 80 has now been tested for the novel coronavirus.
Some passengers will be allowed to disembark the ship early, including those aged 80 years or over with a chronic medical condition, those 80 years or over staying in an inside cabin (with no balcony), and those under 80 who have been given a test for any other reason.
Passengers who do disembark early will have to remain in government housing facilities until February 19.

UPDATE 4/14:

Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Katsunobu Kato announced at a press conference that 67 new coronavirus infections were confirmed on the cruise ship Diamond Princess. 38 of them are asymptomatic. The total number of infected cruise ships was 285.

I would not be surprised if everyone on the ship is already infected. They just can’t test everyone. There’s not enough tests. And they take a good while to be done, and they give a lot of false negatives.

Remember this thing is extremely contagious.

The longer they keep them all cooped up on that boat, the more who will catch it.

Keep them all on there long enough and they will all catch it. Then the only option is to tow the ship out to sea and torpedo it.

I think they already are all infected. This thing can be passed by asymptomatic carriers the next day. The time that took the first patient to show symptoms was more than enough to have it spread all over the passengers and crew.

They haven’t. I watched an interview with an elderly couple on the ship and they were asking to be tested. They are only testing people who develop a fever. They are supposed to take their temp several times a day and report it if they have a rise.

How can they only keep them until the 19th?

Those germs have been being spread and still are. If someone is not showing symptoms today or testing positive they still need to be quarantined after they get off that ship.

It will be interesting if it is allowed to play out to the end - that being no new cases on the ship. Then put those results through a strainer and analyze what the differences are between those infected and those not infected. A ship is like a mini-world. If they are permitted to leave too early, nothing meaningful will be learned.

In historic pandemics there were some who were resistant and did not get the disease. A lot is learned about how our immune system fights diseases by analyzing this immunity of certain persons.

Agreed.

Demographic effects as well.

I've never wanted to go on a cruise. Now I have perfectly clear logic to back that up. lol.

Feel sorry for those on there, and the 19th is too soon.

I think this is going maisntream soon, I hope panic does not cause more harm.

I think there's no practical way to avoid contagion,just read a comment from an acquaitance with ties to Japan that a person in a district on Japan that had not any contact with or even close to any known ill or suspect of being ill, person, fell ill with a "flu", went to hospital, and got diagnosed with Covid-19, so the spread is absolutely out of control.

I am betting on staying healthy and hoping for the best.

Test kits are unreliable. China now going with CT scans of the lungs. Some patients tested negative 5X before testing positive.

“Reuters is reporting that Chinese state media said last week that Hubei would start recognising computerised tomography (CT) scan results as confirmation of infections, allowing hospitals to isolate patients more quickly.”

Why would you let an infected cruise ship dock in your city?
The airborne virus will simply float out the windows and onto the dockworkers who take it home with them.
Or the wind could carry it a few miles into downtown where people inhale it.
