They Literally just let the virus spread throughout the ships passengers, then let them loose into the public. The incompetency is astounding.

Japanese government screwed up big time. Instead of defending their ego, they should have admitted their initial failure and seek professional advice. They have just opened Hell's Gate.

There has been several confirmed cases where suspected people were once tested negative, then turned positive after a while. Tokyo Olympics is over.

Betting 80% of those you just let off are infected and walking around infecting others. This is horrible! Japan screwed its citizens.

I’m so surprised the Japanese government didn’t quarantined the those leaving the ship for at least another two weeks. Those people may restart this entire pandemic all over again. Shame on you Japan. 🤯😰

Sounds like a fantastic plot for a Horror movie. Zombies on Cruise Liner! I bet the script is already being written and its coming out end of the year or beginning of next!

Old people do not have the physical ability to "rigorously clean" anything, they can't bend, reach, scrub hard enough. How do I know this? I am old.
