USA: Diamond Princess evacuee gives 'after dark' tour of quarantine facility

United States, Fairfield, California
February 23, 2020 at 08:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

Former Diamond Princess cruise ship passenger Spencer Fehrenbacher offered a glimpse of the facility he is staying in, at the Travis Air Force Base near Fairfield, California, on the fifth night of a two-week quarantine, on Saturday.

"We're allowed to go out as long as we stay within the quarantine fence. So during the day a lot of people are out, people are running, I played soccer today for the first time in like five years but nobody goes out at night," explained Fehrenbacher, while filming the deserted perimeter.

During his 'after dark' tour, the Diamond Princess evacuee spotted a US Marshal. "Just like that there's a US Marshal, just hanging out. I'm not going to lie, pretty intimidating," he commented.

"It's just weird, I don't know how else to say it, it just kind of feels like a zombie movie and I'm the zombie," he concluded.

Diamond Princess evacuees are being quarantined for 14 days on the base, as the total number of confirmed cases on the cruise ship hit 454.

The death toll of the virus, which has been declared by the WHO as a "global health emergency" has overtaken the SARs epidemic of the early 2000s, claiming the lives of more than 2,000.
