CAN’T TAKE OUT TRAPPED INDIANS
Indians quarantined on a Japanese cruise ship, off the coast of Tokyo, cannot be extracted, Union Health Minister Dr Harshavardhan has said. Addressing a press conference, he said that Indians aboard the ship cannot be taken out as they have been quarantined in the larger interest of preventing the spread of the virus. "People have been quarantined on the ship as per Japan government rules. The positive cases on the ship have been hospitalised. The rest will remain in quarantine till Feb 19. We can’t just tell them to take out only our men, it is being done in the larger interest," Harshavardhan said.
