Storyline


The Chinese Embassy in Japan has been delivering much-needed medicines to Chinese passengers on the novel coronavirus-hit cruise ship which has been quarantined in Yokohama, Japan.

As the ship Diamond Princess has been kept in quarantine since February 5, passengers onboard are running out of medicines to treat conditions such as hypertension, heart disease and cancer.

Having been receiving their pleas for help since February 6, the Chinese Embassy in Japan made emergency arrangements to deliver the medicines to them in time.

"By February 13, we had received pleas for medicines from 71 people. By yesterday (February 13), we had delivered medicines to 38 people, while another 33 people will receive the medicines they need today. So at present, we have sufficiently satisfied their need of medicines in time," said Zhan Kongchao, counsellor and consul-general of the Chinese Embassy in Japan.

The ship's passengers who have been confirmed positive for the novel coronavirus are now receiving treatment in hospitals. All of them are mild cases.

The staff of the Chinese embassy visited patients at one of the hospitals on Monday to show their support to them.

"When we visited one of our compatriots, I wanted to shake hands with her, but she firmly refused me and said: 'You could just stand there. I could feel your care and encouragement. You have to serve more compatriots who need your help, so you have to take care of yourself. We don't need to shake hands.' Her words deeply touched me," said Zhan.

Some Hong Kong compatriots on the Diamond Princess have written a letter to express their gratitude towards the embassy.

According to data from the Chinese Embassy, there are more than 300 Chinese passengers on board the cruise ship, including 22 from the Mainland, 260 from Hong Kong, five from Macao and 24 from Taiwan.
