Those who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted to board and will instead be transferred to the Japanese health system to receive appropriate care,” the government said, adding that the decision was taken to lighten the burden on the Japanese health-care system.“We are working closely with Carnival Cruise Lines and the Government of Japan to assist in this evacuation.”The U.S. Department of State (DoS), working closely with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other partner agencies, is also providing a chartered aircraft to bring its passengers from Japan to the United States.There are approximately 400 U.S. citizens onboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship.The aircraft was scheduled to arrive in Japan on the evening of February 16. The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo told passengers that they would be screened for symptoms before being allowed to board the flight.For those not allowed to board they will be taken over by Japanese authorities for required care.“The aircraft will land in the United States at Travis Air Force Base in California.

We are preparing Diamond Princess to return to service April 29, 2020, for the start of Japan’s annual Golden Week celebrations,” the company said.Furthermore, due to port restrictions and closures and lack of predictability regarding port availability, Princess Cruises had to cancel additional Asia voyages on its ships Sapphire Princess and Majestic Princess extending into June.“All booked guests will receive a full refund, back to the original form of payment, of their cruise fare, Princess Air, pre- and post-cruise hotel packages, prepaid shore excursions and other prepaid items, and taxes, fees, and port expenses,” the cruise liner added.The latest update from the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that the number of laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus has risen to 51, 857, out of which 51, 174  are in China.

The NDFP’s Jose Maria Sison, however,said that the President must make a formal offer to show his sincerity. In September 2018, Duterte said that the communist insurgency may be over by the second quarter of 2019 following the surrendering of NPA members and fall of several guerilla fronts in Mindanao as indicators. Duterte’s appeal came after he placed the entire island of Luzon under an expanded quarantine. According to Sison, the NDFP would strongly call on the government to pour public funds to efforts that will fight COVID-19, or the coronavirus disease 2019. These include having an adequate number of health workers, facilities, equipment and medicines.center_img The country now has 142 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 14 deaths.

Yobo raring to go with Canaries

first_img Yobo is “ready to go” for his Norwich debut in Saturday’s league clash against Manchester City, after joining the Canaries on loan from Fenerbahce. The 33-year-old Nigeria defender revealed he rejected a host of offers from other countries to join Norwich, thanks to manager Hughton’s persuasive argument. Chris Hughton’s sales pitch led Joseph Yobo to join Norwich City’s fight for Barclays Premier League survival, according to the former Everton defender. Press Associationcenter_img “I’m excited that I had this opportunity to come back to England,” Yobo told Norwich’s official club website. “It’s probably the best league in the world, and it’s a new challenge so I’m looking forward to it. “There were loads of clubs from abroad who were interested in me, but the manager here convinced me and I wanted to come back to the Premier League. “We had a week break for Christmas in Turkey but then two weeks of training after that and it was good, so I’m ready to go.” Norwich boss Hughton added Yobo to his loan acquisition of ex-Newcastle wideman Jonas Gutierrez. Hughton’s men sit 15th in the Premier League, just two points ahead of West Ham in 18th. Itching to get started on his Norwich career, Yobo said: “I trained yesterday [Tuesday] but today it was with the whole squad so I’m happy to be here. “I know a few of the players already, it wasn’t entirely new to me but I felt welcome.” last_img read more

Henley wins Honda Classic play-off

first_img McIlroy’s eagle putt trickled just by on the right and after he tapped in, Henley also holed out to make the play-off and he kept his nerve to make birdie while his rivals fell away. Earlier, w orld number one Tiger Woods withdrew after 12 holes of his final round due to back pain. Woods shot 65 on Saturday to move into contention but was five over for his final round when he called it quits. McIlroy told pgatour.com: “I didn’t play well enough to deserve to win today. It’s very disappointing. It was a perfect opportunity to win. No one was really coming at me. “There’s a few positives to take, but obviously it’s going to be hard to get over because I had a great chance to win my first tournament of the season and I didn’t. “It’s tough to take at the minute but I’ll sleep it off tonight and get back at it.” McIlroy began the day 12 under par, two clear of his playing partner, but both his birdies on the front nine were immediately cancelled out by bogeys. He dropped another shot at the ninth to leave himself 11 under and it closed up further on the back nine. McIlroy dropped another at the 12th and followed a double-bogey at 16 – where he hit out of a bunker into the water – with another bogey to fall out of the lead altogether. Henley had pitched in at 14 for a second successive birdie but gave both strokes back at the next when he dunked his tee shot in the water. Palmer bogeyed the last to fall to eight under and was joined by Knox, the Scot’s double-bogey six at the 14th proving costly – but the pair were able to watch in hope while keeping loose for a possible play-off. At the 18th, though, McIlroy produced a moment of magic to set up the chance of a fairytale winning eagle. The 24-year-old’s second shot carried the water and bunker in front of the green and stopped almost dead, 20 feet from the pin. Henley responded by duffing his pitch on, leaving himself a 60-foot birdie putt which he lagged to within five. American Russell Henley came out on top in a four-way play-off to deprive Rory McIlroy of victory as the Honda Classic lived up to its name on Sunday. Press Association The pair, playing in the final group, both finished eight under alongside Ryan Palmer and Scotland’s Russell Knox after a remarkable last hour at the Jack Nicklaus-designed PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. McIlroy had earned his place with a stunning approach to the last but faltered around the green when the hole was replayed for the play-off and it was Henley who prevailed with a birdie four. last_img read more

Battling Burnley deny Newcastle

first_imgGeorge Boyd completed a second remarkable fightback inside five days as Burnley left Newcastle with a point. The visitors made it to half-time just one goal in arrears but needing to show much, much more after the break to get back into it. Burnley were desperately unfortunate not to be back on level terms with 48 minutes gone when Ings smashed a shot against the underside of the bar and Barnes headed the rebound against the foot of the post with Alnwick helpless on both occasions. With David Jones and Barnes pulling the strings, Dyche’s men were enjoying their best spell of the game and Newcastle’s problems were not improved when Taylor limped off to be replaced by Mike Williamson. They were denied by the woodwork for a fourth time with 62 minutes gone when defender Ben Mee headed Jones’ corner against the crossbar, and Alnwick only just managed to keep out Boyd’s stinging long-range effort two minutes later. But the visitors finally got their reward 24 minutes from time when Ings glanced Kightly’s cross past Alnwick and in off the post to the delight of the travelling fans high behind the goal. Burnley looked the more likely winners but with 12 minutes remaining, Perez embarked upon a mazy run which took him past full-back Kieran Trippier and when his cross was helped on by substitute Adam Armstrong, Sissoko fired past Heaton at the far post. But there was to be a further twist when Boyd smashed a third equaliser past Alnwick with four minutes left to snatch a point. Virtually everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong for the visitors during a first half in which they lost three men to injury and found themselves 2-1 behind, with Steven Taylor and Jack Colback scoring for the Magpies either side of Paul Dummett’s own goal. But having come from 2-0 down at Manchester City to draw on Sunday, they turned in a stunning second-half display which was rewarded when Danny Ings headed them level after 66 minutes, and that proved scant reward for their efforts on an afternoon when they hit the woodwork on no fewer than four occasions. With time running down, Sissoko gave the bulk of crowd of 51, 761 what they wanted, but once again, his side could not hang on to their lead. Dyche named the same team for the sixth successive game but his plans were ripped apart within 35 minutes as he lost captain Jason Shackell, his replacement Kevin Long and midfielder Dean Marney to a combination of injury and illness. It had all started so positively for the visitors, who hit the post through Ashley Barnes with less than a minute on the clock, but their fortunes were to dip alarmingly. Newcastle took the lead with 15 minutes gone when defender Taylor glanced Colback’s corner home. But the lead lasted just four minutes and the Magpies had no-one to blame but themselves when a catastrophic breakdown in communication between Dummett and Jak Alnwick saw the defender loop a header over the advancing keeper to drag the Clarets back into it. Order was restored seven minutes later when Colback, who scored his first goal for the club against Everton on Sunday, thumped a 25-yard drive past Heaton and in off the post. Press Association The visitors trailed three times at St James’ Park and looked to be heading for defeat when Moussa Sissoko put the Magpies 3-2 ahead with just 12 minutes remaining. But Sean Dyche’s men refused to be beaten and Boyd’s 86th-minute strike denied John Carver, standing in for Alan Pardew as he watched prospective new employers Crystal Palace in action at Aston Villa, the victory he craved as he attempted to state his case to replace the 53-year-old. last_img read more
