TOKYO (Kyodo) — A Japanese infectious diseases expert on Thursday removed videos criticizing the situation on the Diamond Princess, a coronavirus-hit cruise ship docked in Yokohama, from YouTube.
In a Twitter post, Kentaro Iwata, a professor at Kobe University Hospital, offered “a heartfelt apology” to those troubled by the videos, whose recordings in Japanese and English had garnered over 1.5 million and 300,000 views, respectively.
I removed my YouTube clip myself since there is no need for further discussing this. Thank you and I apologize to those who got involved in.
