Japan says infected United States citizens won't be taken back on charter flight

The cruise ship is quarantined off the coast of Yokohama in Japan. He has called on the government - and billionaire Richard Branson - to rescue him, his wife Sally, and other British citizens.

A special CDC team will assess the health of the USA passengers of the ship, and those with a fever, cough and other similar symptoms will not be allowed to return home on board of the two flights. "I've now given up on anybody in the United Kingdom, quite frankly". The ministry described the person as a foreigner, but did not disclose the nationality.

A total of 8,096 people had been discharged from hospital after recovery.

Excluding the cases on the ship, and an infected quarantine officer, Japanese authorities have so far diagnosed at least 52 people with the virus, which has killed more than 1,500 and infected at least 66,000 in China.

The man who died in Paris from a lung infection caused by Covid-19 was a 80-year-old tourist. He arrived in France on January 16, then was hospitalized on January 25 under strict isolation measures. Three new cases were reported Saturday in Wakayama prefecture in central Japan, and eight were reported in Tokyo.

DGCA also stated on Friday, "All airlines shall make in-flight announcement in the flights coming directly from these countries and ensure strict compliance".

"There have been concerns about the impact of the coronavirus outbreak when it arrives in Africa", said Dr Michael Head, senior research fellow in global health at the University of Southampton. "This gives confidence that this might be an isolated case with minimal transmission".

The havoc of the coronavirus that started in China has now spread all over the world. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the Munich security conference in Germany that, despite encouraging efforts by China, he was concerned about the increasing number of cases.

The cruise ship is the site of the maximum number of coronavirus infections infections outside China, the epicentre of the outbreak.

Deaths also have been reported in Japan, the Philippines and Hong Kong.

The couple are among the 67 new positive cases of COVID-19 virus detected aboard the ship, which has been under quarantine at a port city southwest of Tokyo since February 5, according to a statement issued Saturday from Jan Swartz, president of the cruise line. "Those who test positive will be transferred to the hospital".

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said there are approximately 400 U.S. citizens onboard the Diamond Princess.

Thakkar, a resident of Mumbai's adjoining Mira Road area, has pleaded with the Prime Minister that if the people who have tested negative for the deadly virus and asked to stay on the ship for a long time, then they too can get infected with the coronavirus.

The cruise liner's quarantine is set to end on Wednesday and while some passengers were disheartened at the prospect of more time in quarantine, others were more understanding. The U.S. State Department, through the embassy in Tokyo, informed passengers that it would be chartering the flight for Sunday.

"We will provide information about your final destination prior to boarding the plane", the embassy said. Accordingly, you will need to undergo further quarantine of 14 days when you arrive in the United States.
