earlier this month A British man has become the first UK national
to die from coronavirus. The unnamed patient was a passenger on the
quarantined Japanese cruise ship the Diamond Princess. Japanese media site Asahi reported that the
man had been travelling on the ship, moored in the Japanese port city of Yokohama. He is the first foreign national aboard the
virus-ridden ship to die. In a statement, Japan’s Ministry of Health,
Labour and Welfare confirmed the death He was one of four Brits forced to stay in
Japan after dozens more, who had tested negative for the COVID-19 disease, were evacuated to
the UK last week. Two of the group of four were David and Sally
Abel, from Northamptonshire, who were treated for the virus at a Japanese hospital. Neither of them is the passenger who died
The man – who has not yet been identified – becomes the sixth passenger on board the
ship to die of coronavirus so far, after a Japanese woman in her 70s from Tokyo passed
away earlier today. Almost 700 passengers and crew who were travelling
on the ship have become sick so far. The Foreign Office says it is investigating
reports that a British man who was aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship has died
from coronavirus. Health Minister Jo Churchill said she was
aware a British man who had been on board the ship was “very poorly”. She told BBC Radio 4’s World at One programme:
“The Foreign Office are supporting the family of a British man who has been very poorly
and was a passenger on board the Diamond Princess. “I haven’t had confirmation, because obviously
I’m on the telephone to you, but I was aware there was a gentleman who was very, very poorly,
and I’m sure like me your thoughts and sympathies go out to his family at this time.” A total of 19 people have tested positive
for the disease in the UK so far after one case in Wales and two in England were confirmed
today. The Welsh patient is the first case in the
country. Reports say the two new English cases both
contracted the disease after coming from Iran, which has seen 388 people infected and 34
deaths. Earlier today, the World Health Organisation
(WHO) warned that the virus could affect most if not all countries. WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told a Geneva
news briefing: “The outbreak is getting bigger. “The scenario of the coronavirus reaching
multiple countries, if not all countries around the world, is something we have been looking
at and warning against since quite a while.”
