Binay Kumar Sarkar, a crew member went live on social media asking for help, to separate them from the rest of the crew. In the video, he said, "Please somehow save us as soon as possible. What's the point if something happens. I want to tell the government of India, Modi-Ji, please segregate us and bring us back home safely."
Today, Japan allowed 11 of the passengers who were unaffected by the virus to deboard the ship. They were asked to take the isolated government allocated rooms. They traveled from the ship to their rooms on a bus with proper protection and the driver was dressed in a protective suit with goggles and masks.
