Professor Iwata Kentaro of Kobe University discusses why he was kicked off the Diamond Princess - and why what he saw alarmed him.
The video was uploaded by Iwata Kentaro (岩田健太郎), a Professor of Infectious Diseases at Kobe University. Dr. Iwata is a renowned and respected expert in infectious diseases who has dealt with the Ebola, Cholera and SARS outbreaks.
Dr. Iwata says that, in his travels treating infectious diseases worldwide, that he never had a fear of becoming infected with Ebola, Cholera, or SARS. “But inside Princess Diamond [sic], I was so scared. I was so scared of getting COVID-19 because there was no way to tell where the virus was.”
