I would be happy to be able to get off the ship but would be frustrated that I am not in the city I departed from. I wonder how many people book premium cabin class tickets only to be then given an economy class ticket for their 10+ hour flight back home.

Looks like their has another outbreak of 39 more passengers on the Diamond Princess. This brings the infected total to 175 persons infected. I seriously think that transmission could be passing between the passengers and crew due to food service. The solution is to quarantine the staff and just hand out MRE's delivered by the military.

What's worse than two weeks quarantine on a cruise ship? Two more weeks of quarantine when you get home.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/dia...tine-1.5465921
Canadians on board a cruise ship currently under quarantine in Japanese waters have been provided an escape route, after the Canadian government announced it plans to bring them home due to the "extraordinary circumstances" faced by passengers.

But the offer comes with a catch those evacuated from the Diamond Princess will have to spend another two weeks in isolation on Canadian soil to make sure that they don't carry the coronavirus that is currently spreading through Asia.

What's worse? Turning a couple thousand passengers from the Wuhan Princess loose in Japan just because they once at some point passed some test for the WuFlu.
