Several Japanese media outlets over the weekend carried interviews with American citizens who are quarantined on the Diamond Princess in Yokohama. An American couple interviewed by TV-Asahi said they are concerned because they do not know exactly when they will be allowed to get off the ship and wondered whether they would have to be quarantined again by the U.S. government after being released. They said that if that were the case, they would prefer to be quarantined in the U.S. now rather than in Japan. Another American couple from Texas cited by Asahi claimed that they had not been receiving enough food or water and that their greatest concern was the lack of information. “We want the Japanese government to continually provide us with accurate information,” they said.
