Japan has now had its first COVID-19 fatality, a woman in her 80s.
No record of having travelled overseas.

First started feeling unwell on January 22, diagnosed with pneumonia on February 1, deteriorated yesterday, died today, tested positive subsequently.

Treated at at least three different medical institutions.

This is disturbing. Its similar story to the guy in Singapore who sought out 5 different doctors before he found one to diagnose he had the virus.

A guy in his 20s also diagnosed in Chiba. No recent overseas history.

On a positive note, everyone left over from the second charter flight tested negative.

A doctor has been infected in Wakayama Prefecture.
Started feeling sick on January 31, but worked Feb 3-5. Currently one other doctor and two patients from the same hospital are being tested after showing symptoms.

So, to summarise the state of play prior to today's data releases:

Japan currently has:

218 infections of cruise ship passengers and crew
1 infection of a quarantine officer
12 infections of people who came home on one of the four charter flights
20 "others"

A man in his 70s who was treated at the Wakayama hospital where the doctor worked has tested positive. He is currently hospitalised elsewhere and is in serious condition.

He may have been at three hospitals in total.

The information is grouped by where people ordinarily reside.

Nine are residents of China (six Wuhan City, three elsewhere in Hubei Province)
Wakayama (x2)
Kanagawa (x2)
Kyoto (x2)
Chiba (x2)
Mie
Nara
Tokyo
Osaka

Or more geographically:

WEST
Wakayama (x2)

EAST

One person who had contact with Diamond Princess crew when the ship docked in Naha (Okinawa) on February 1 has been diagnosed with pneumonia and is now being tested for COVID-19, with the results due 4PM Japan time or so. Around 200 people are being monitored.

That age breakdown may well be more indicative of the ages of the people who tend to take cruises rather than the age of people susceptible to this virus.
I think there’s a couple of issues and yes I’d say this is a unique population.
I‘d guess everyone is susceptible to testing positive but age is a major determinant along with comorbidities for complications or recovery.

The figures haven’t changed from yesterday?

People leaving the boat (at around 2PM today) who tested negative are heading for Wako City in Saitama Prefecture.
