～ What is the difference with a hospital ship? ～ An outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) among passengers and crew on a cruise ship led to quarantine of approximately 3,700 passengers and crew that began on February 3, 2020, and lasted for nearly 4 weeks at the Port of Yokohama, Japan. By the end of quarantine, a total of 619 passengers and 20 crew had been infected by the coronavirus.
Problem-1. Incompleteness of the isolation
Problem-2. Difficulty of zoning
Problem-3. Insufficient ability for the infection control of the crew
The point that we should assume a lesson
on preparing for a hospital ship (once again) :
“medical” needs to learn a “ship”,
and the “ship” needs to learn “medical” .
