Good morning, And I’ve got an update for you Alongside the ship right now. We are still moored in Yokohama. We’ve been taking on provisions and so on but ambulances have now arrived alongside the ship the only way I know that because we are on the Starboard side. The only way that I know that is the captain has announced that ambulances have arrived But he cannot let us passengers know the reason until he has been allowed to inform passengers by the Japanese Health Authority now Someone who is becoming an important acquaintance of mine From the news world and that is Simon from The Washington Post. I Said earlier I wasn’t going to name anybody. But this is with Simon’s approval. Okay Simon of The Washington Post He’s been really brilliant in getting information from the government from the people who know what’s going on and the Japanese Health Minister I’m gonna struggle pronouncing this Katsunobukato Okay, he is the Japanese Health Minister he has announced this morning that 61 people in total on this ship have now tested positive for the coronavirus Okay a total of 61 people onboard This ship have now been tested positive for the corona virus now It’s not the captain’s fault that he has not announced this he can only release information when it’s been authorized by the Chairman Japanese Health Authority my question is, how that Why are the Japanese Health Authority Releasing the information to the world and not permitting the captain to tell his people? You know to me it’s just wrong. It’s not right. It’s so unfair So thank you Simon for passing that information (music playing)….
