Nikkei wrote today that calls are growing within political circles for the GOJ to obtain a “hospital ship” in response to the mass infection of the new coronavirus on the Diamond Princess. Proponents emphasize the importance of swift procurement of a hospital ship by modifying an existing warship or a commercial ferry, as the nation has been hit by typhoons and other natural disasters frequently in recent years.
