We are on a quarantined ship the Diamond Princess in Yokohama Bay it's

anticipated we will be on board tonight now our flight back to the UK is in less

than two hours time so there's no way we are going to be off the ship so we've

had to cancel a flight now we've just had the medical guys come into our

stateroom and it's taken all night from midnight to what are we now ten o'clock

in the morning here so 10 hours for them to do four of the decks and there are 14

decks in total the medical check took no more than 45 seconds one of the

passengers on the ship who disembarked in Hong Kong he'd been on board here for

a week and he felt ill when he was in Hong Kong was checked and lo and behold

he was found to have the coronavirus this guy 80 year old gentleman he's been

found to have the virus so that put the ship into a different situation looks

like they're bringing some supplies on board

you see this I'm not sure what it is we have just been awakened 10 15 minutes

ago by the captain and told all passengers who might be on deck or

anywhere on the ship have to return to their staterooms um I just wish the ship

would let us know what's happening on the worldwide media I'm reading that

there are some passengers who are being taken to a medical facility off the ship

it really is now confirmed 10 passengers have proved samples were taken and they

have proved positive to the corona virus we are officially quarantined for 14

days in Japan it appears that our quarantine is on board the ship that we

will not be taken out to a hospital and if I have the captain correctly we will

be leaving the port of Yokohama and going out to sea so we're going to get a

two-week cruise so come on it's not as bad as it could be we don't have a

choice in what we can eat they're just delivering food to the cabins apparently

and the announcement was very recently they are starting on the bottom deck and

working their way up there I'm on ninth deck so this is not a good situation for

me as a diabetic and we are now out on the open seas not sure where we are

going but the purpose of being out on the open sea is so that the ship can

make fresh water I am not kidding the ocean is the roughest we have

experienced the whole time we've been away really is rocking and rolling us

yet but we paid for a cruise and by golly that's what we're getting
