TOKYO-All but a handful of the passengers from the disease-stricken Diamond Princess cruise ship docked in Yokohama has been dropped. But for Japan, the saga is far from over. , Many of the remains of the crew, enduring another 14 days quarantine-though this time in a condition that Japanese officials hope will prevent additional infections

But there have been worrying development others: On this day, eight civil servants working in ship to support quarantine have tested positive for COVID-19, and more may follow. Most employees health ministry about 90 who visited the ship during the first quarantine two weeks ending on February 19 initially returned to the task of their normal work, but in the light of the infection, the Health Ministry yesterday revised policy and now they are potentially exposed to the virus at the Diamond Princess is self -mengkarantina at home for 14 days, according to a ministry official who asked not to be identified.

However, there is concern here that the Japanese handling of the crisis may lead to a new chain of infection. Now there are 700 confirmed COVID 19 cases related to the Diamond Princess, excluding infections found among the passengers after they had to go home. US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 36 American Diamond Princess passengers returning to the emergency flight has been confirmed as carriers of the virus.

Aside from cruise ships, such as Japan yesterday afternoon has identified 144 cases, among those repatriated from Wuhan, China. In total, 844, means that Japan ranks second, just behind South Korea, the number of confirmed cases outside mainland China.

2 weeks of quarantine, which stuck more than 3700 people under increasingly dangerous conditions, has come under fierce criticism. Last week, Kentaro Iwata, a specialist infection control at Kobe University, posted a video scathing about the conditions on board, which he says is “the” Japanese bureaucrats and medical personnel visited the ship to tend to the passengers, conduct epidemiological surveys, and coordinate arrangements to move people to hospital or chartered flights home. The fact that so many of the infected “absolutely confirmed fears Professor Iwata,” said Paul Hunter, an expert on infectious disease epidemiology at the University of East Anglia.

Usually, the people who support the quarantine does not have to be quarantined themselves, assume they use personal protection equipment (PPE) -masks, gloves, goggles, and a gown. “But the available evidence suggests that the APD is not suitable for use in the ship,” said Hunter. He believes officers working onboard the Diamond Princess should have been quarantined after it was revealed problems with infection control. If management has resulted in infections loose as government officials in the UK, “I suspect the criminal proceedings will follow,” said Hunter.

staged release of passengers from 19 to 23 February has sparked concern as well. One Japanese passenger who tested negative when it came back to her home 100 kilometers away in Tochigi prefecture by train and tested positive during follow-up on February 22. In response, the Ministry of Health will increase passenger health screening, health minister Katsunobu Kato said during several weekend press conference here. He also confirmed that 23 people had disembarked the ship and go home without having been tested for the virus. The Ministry is now tracking them for testing.

Another major concern is that in many cases are not associated with clear Diamond Princess route of transmission has not been identified, Kato said. During the last 2 weeks, people fed up with COVID-19 has sprung up in different locations are widely without identified sources. Anyone infected people may have been infected many others as well.

chain of transmission to be invisible, completely off our radar.

“This is a virus that is very complicated,” said Hitoshi Oshitani, a virologist and a public health specialist at the Tohoku University. It’s clear that some people infected with the virus transmission prior to recognizing the symptoms and may not even be aware that they are infected with COVID-19. “The chain of transmission to be invisible, completely off our radar, “said Oshitani. “We do not see a sudden increase in cases, we only see a sudden increase of cases detected.”

South Korea also saw the rapid expansion of the case, such as Iran and Italy, which experts say brand increasingly unlikely that the virus can be stopped altogether. In contrast, the Japanese strategy “is to slow down the pace of expansion” of outbreaks, Shigeru Omi, a public health specialist who heads the Japanese Community Health Organization, said at a press conference here last week. Hopefully this will reduce the overall number of infections and delaying the peak of the outbreak, to buy time to strengthen the ability of health care, said Omi, who previously regional director of the World Health Organization Western Pacific. He added that early detection and high-quality care for severe cases will hopefully cut the death rate
