U.S. citizens evacuated from cruise after 13-day quarantine off Japan

 Hundreds of Americans were evacuated from a cruise ship early Monday (February 17) morning, after spending 13 days under quarantine off Japan over the coronavirus.

U.S. officials late on Sunday (February 16) prepared chartered planes to evacuate citizens who were on board the stranded Diamond Princess. Two flights operated by Kalitta Air carrying a few hundred American passengers from the ship departed from Haneda Airport on Monday morning.

Photographs from inside one of the charter flights showed a portable bio-containment unit and a U.S. health official in a protective suit.

All passengers were screened before being allowed on the chartered flights and are subject to a 14-day quarantine upon arrival back in the United States.
