      Where is this lady’s tv ?!

    2. aN Na

      I’m British, and I think it’s disgusting they’ve kept everyone on board as long as they have. Individual countries have their own systems in place for dealing with this. Two Brits at least are infected only because they were not allowed to be brought home. How many other people have been unnecessarily infected?!

    3. Gloria Knepp

      2nd time you get it, its all over.. js

    4. bhuvana mani

      We cud be seeing a super spreader if not for those tests🤔🤔

    5. Ninja Skater

      If she isn't infected Thank God. If she is I believe when they took her from her room to the hospital maybe she got infected there or somewhere in the ship. Like those who went into the airplane who were INFECTED before getting results and make all the people set together with a mask that was wrong each person should be separated from others to not get infected period ☑️

    6. Triggered6D

      i legit cough, sneeze and have a runny nose. idk if i got the corona bc i live in a country that doesent have it nor have i ever went to another country the last couple of months. the last time i went to a different country was in august 2019. should i be worried?

    7. aleanajadeskywalker

      Has anyone heard from her since this ?

    8. Emilie Santana

      This looks like pys ops, nothing to see here. 56 million are quarantine just for the fun of it! PLEASE WAKE UP!

    9. kasozi2013

      Yo .. This woman looks healthier than me!!!! And I ain't got Corona virus.

    10. Andrew Behrens


    11. Andrew Behrens

      I hate her voice she’s like yessssssssssssssss thissss isssss myyyy roooooooommmmmmm

    12. Andrew Behrens


    13. Dawn Robinson

      Load of hype over nothing

    14. God Sent Missions Tv

      How safe are we with this coronavirus? 🤔

    15. Lola Rodriguez

      Lol its always a sick person saying they arent sick😩😂😂😂

    16. Kentrell Strachan

      Don’t take Advil people something doesn’t add up.

    17. Catherine Gorter

      I wonder why the questionnaire asks if you take “pain killers”, as she pointed out she was taking analgesics? What’s the connection? 🤔

    18. NewNew Davis

      I wonder once you catch the coronavirus and recover from it, can you catch it again or are you immune to it???

    19. Sam Spade

      🤦🏿‍♂️ “On Sunday, two Canadians who were aboard the Westerdam returned home via Vancouver Airport. Stephen Hansen and his wife said over the weekend they were asked at the airport to wear masks, but weren't told to isolate themselves.”

    20. James Powlett

      No symptoms doesn’t mean you ain’t got it , she’s still A carrier , if you get over it you can get it again , second time round it’s apparently worse and more deadly, incubation is up to 24 days , not 16 , the fact symptoms are not there makes this virus 🦠 more deadly

    21. Jorexzill

      Oh no, she had a mild cold. We're doomed. 😸

    22. Martins Niedre

      She is probably in the incubation period

    23. Krim Rochester

      Well this is very different from the video of all the dead bodies lying in front of buildings in China, waiting to be picked up like garbage. They're burning the bodies there -no funerals. This lady looks like a false positive case.

    24. FoundGod

      Carriers can be non symptomatic for 24 days! It seems as though her SYMPTOMS haven’t begun yet! Clearly this is not the case for the thousands who have passed from this.

    25. WHITS

      The plane that was transporting people back to the countries have been quarantined. There are people now on board that have the coronavirus. Shows how helpful this interview was.

    26. The Jesus Freak

      So is this Contagion or the annual flu? Wth?......

    27. Hekate’s Wheel

      Where are the acutely unwell victims of coronavirus?

    28. Rowenne Lanorias

      We're are you

    29. Ammeg Xx

      This seems a bit suspicious

    30. ana anguiano

      "Something's fishy and it ain't the fish"

    31. Illinois Rec showcase and reviews Smoke

      She dont got it they just put her in for saying she takes pills. I heard it only kills zipperheads anyway

    32. Chings

      'Looks like a Western room'? The presentet is displaying all her biases. How does the room look like? Are they taking care of you?

    33. Naomi1026

      People saying that because the reporter made a mistake by saying hotel instead of hospital, that its staged, seriously? That's a f'n hospital room.

    34. Daniel Sherwood

      People from her home area, friends, family, work etc. will probably be a bit nervous to have her around when she gets back even if she's been fully cleared as safe.

    35. Daniel Sherwood

      It just doesn't seem like a good idea to allow people to go free from that ship on the 19th until they do a full quarantine in isolation off of that ship. There obviously is contamination and infection that has occurred during the quarantine. The time will need to be reset in case anyone has most recently come down with the virus.

    36. M Wright

      What if it is China. Trying to control their population. Note: this is what my husband said

    37. Ed Mund

      Check back on her now, check again in a week, check after 14 days.... she doing okay? If so, false positive maybe?

    38. Tanya Tsoutsos

      This is not quarantine. This is imprisonment!!! They are testing the waters to see how Americans will deal with imprisonment and this is propoganda. "Trust us, we have your best interest at heart " -sincerely, your living government. 🤣 get ready folks! It's coming!

    39. FreeSpeech FreeSpeech.

      Lucky girl.. But others have since died on that ship. With these symptoms people wont know and will spread it everywhere.

    40. sandro Zuniga

      Nobody: Absolutely Nobody: Host:Is the hospital a private hospital or public hospital?

    41. Mary Hynes

      This is sending a false sense of security. I'm glad she's not symptomatic but had they not caught it she would have spread it to someone who may not have been so lucky.

    42. vendomnu

      Re-infection is a thing with coronavirus. First round can be harmless with no or little symptom for 10-12. Then you get re-infected and go critical. Scary stuff. Watch MedCram - he's a pulmonary specialist and has some good videos on the coronavirus. Especially, watch the one named 'How Coronavirus kills.' It mentions how symptoms can be alleviated (prone positioning is a simple and effective survival enhancer).

    43. Betty Pickle

      Viruses are usually strongest with the first infected and weaken as they are passed along. Although this woman is highly suspect, if my opinion means anything.

    44. Johnathan Johnson

      10:17 that slip up tho smh i call bs on all this

    45. X Amiphy

      Cough on as many people as you can I don't want school

    46. Mirian Magallon

      Crazy, I’m from Portland Oregon. Minutes away

    47. Annalise Santos

      I wouldn’t even believe anything that comes from the media FOH

    48. :3 Cookiesssfever

      Guys you can survive the corona virus just try your best to stay healthy

    49. Meli Edelmira

      Haha randomly chosen.... She ain't sick. Someone sick with upper respiratory or flu like symptoms isnt going to feel great like her. Smh lies. Go check yalls disinfectants. Every season they list on the labels what virals & bacterias will be active. Guess what lysol lists as top viral??? Human Coronavirus, Influenza A. Not all of us are ignorant. Some of us pay attention to everything and we SEE EVERYTHING THAT THE CDC IS LYING ABOUT

    50. Kimberly K

      She does sound congested to me. Not being given any medication 😟 let’s wait until it’s severe?

    51. Alexis Marie

      So how many people didn’t check that they were taking pain killers because they were thinking along the lines of narcotics.... so there could be so many more who are positive without knowing or having any symptoms. Scary times.

    52. Tracy McCardle

      Its like an interview with a "Stepford Wife" with the Coronavirus .... See public, nothing to worry about (wink wink wink) Disregard those deaths that have been reported

    53. Connie Roberts

      She's a carrier.

    54. Jesusita Mejia

      Great we have lots of hosts. Look forward to next year when the the bug comes alive again in them.

    55. TheNorseGinger

      I’m glad that she’s doing well, but that’s a first world perspective from an adult with a healthy immune system. I’d be interested to hear from someone with health problems in a third world country that has to deal with it, considering that’s who it’s really heavily effecting.

    56. Daniélín NicG

      My normal flu that ive been sick for 2 wks with sounds worst than this

    57. Landhaus Idyll

      "Show us your room, looks like a western room" did she think that a Japanese hospital have tatami floors and paper walls? 🙄

      1. brown bird

        the samurai surgeons might accidentally slice up the rice paper

    58. Daphne

      I can find no updates on her!!

    59. Maximalt

      The reporter looks so anoying

    60. simon ling

      Well she is very fortunate. Heightened immune system & good rest should see her discharged soon.
