For those who have not been following the Diamond Cruise Ship fiasco, here is some background.

From USA Today…

Two elderly cruise ship passengers with coronavirus who were on Princess Cruises’ Diamond Princess have died, according to Japan’s health ministry, the cruise line confirmed.

“Our hearts go out to the families, friends and all who are impacted by these losses,” the company said in a statement provided by spokeswoman Alivia Owyoung Ender. “All of us at Princess Cruises, as well as the crew of the Diamond Princess, offer our sincere condolences.”

A health ministry official confirmed that the passengers had been previously hospitalized in serious condition and had existing chronic diseases. The official spoke anonymously, citing office protocol.

Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, which has built a map of coronavirus data including cases, fatalities and recoveries, also cites two deaths from the Diamond Princess, which brings the total death toll from the virus in Japan to three. Per the data, 621 cases of the virus had been identified among the 3,711 quarantined passengers and crew, making the ship the site of the most infections outside of China; one Diamond Princess passenger has recovered.

Coronavirus is here America.

We are now playing with fire.

So long as the numbers are low, medical facilities will be likely to handle the confirmed cases.

But all it takes is one minor oversight and we could be looking at a full blown pandemic situation in America as well.

Pray for our nation and the world.
