The US President Donald Trump got roused and rebuked senior advisers as 14 Americans who have been tested positive for the coronavirus returned to the country from Japan ahead of being informed that they will be in quarantine overseas. Initially, the president was informed that the US nationals who were on the diamond princess cruise ship where the epidemic spread, would be evacuated by two flights, however, the infected persons would remain in a quarantine in japan where the ship is docked, as per news report.
The post said, the state department and the health official decided to evacuate the infected persons as well, without letting the president know.
The government officials told the news agency that trump was enraged over returning of Americans from the cruise ship as he was concerned that the decision might be damaging to the handling of the virus by the Trump administration.
There were reports regarding disagreement among the state department and the US centers for disease control and prevention regarding evacuation of infected persons from the cruise ship in Japan to America along with the healthy individuals.
The executive director and managing director for operational medicine at the state department bureau of medicine Dr. William Walters said: “I think the folks on the ground did just the right thing, by — out of an abundance of caution — moving those 14 people into an isolation area where they pose no threat to themselves or anyone else, to provide room for a robust inter-agency discussion between not just CDC and state, but the operational elements of HHS”.
He held “At the end of the day, the State Department had a decision to make, informed by our inter-agency partners, and we went ahead and made that decision”, “And the decision, I think, was the right one in bringing those people home”. More than 35 cases have confirmed in the country as per US officials.–Worldwide News
