In the rest of the world, there have been more than 40 deaths and 2,700 cases. “Baka iba-ibang araw sila na-expose o nakasalamuha sa mga positibong kaso so naisip po natin na baka pinakamagaling po ang mag-ulit tayo ng another 14-day quarantine para lang tayo makasigurado,” said Vergeire. The Diamond Princess was quarantined on Feb. 5 after a passenger who disembarked in Hong Kong tested positive for the virus. Many crew were not isolated because they were needed to keep the vessel running. The repatriated Filipinos would be quarantined for 14 days at a facility at the New Clark City in Tarlac that was previously used to house athletes in last year’s Southeast Asian Games. Filipino crew members of Diamond Princess disembarked the quarantined ship in Japan on Tuesday afternoon. They were transported from the Yokohama Port, where the cruise ship has been docked for weeks, to the Haneda Airport.

DOH Assistant Secretary Rosette Vergeire said the 441 Filipino crew members and four passengers of the Diamond Princess, who arrived in the Philippines before dawn, did not show any signs of coronavirus so far. Eighty Filipinos from the cruise ship had tested positive for the virus, 70 were still admitted in hospitals in Tokyo while 10 were discharged and preparing to go back to the Philippines.

Football News Arsenal move into top four of Premier League with win over 10-man Watford

first_imgWatford is the FA Cup finalists where they will face Manchester City.Watford captain Troy Deeney was then shown a straight red card after just 11 minutes.Arsenal is in the midst of a four-way fight for the last two spots for next season’s UEFA Champions League. London: Arsenal moved into the Premier League top four but made hard work of seeing off 10-man Watford 1-0 thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s fortunate early opener on Monday. Aubameyang profited from an error by Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster as he blasted an attempted clearance in off the Gabon international. Watford captain Troy Deeney was then shown a straight red card after just 11 minutes, but the Gunners failed to make the most of their man advantage and were fortunate as the hosts twice hit the woodwork. However, Unai Emery’s men held out for a first clean sheet away from home in the Premier League this season to move ahead of Chelsea on goal difference into fourth.     “We didn’t control the match as I wanted,” admitted Emery. “The team was anxious because they could (have) taken some moment. The most important for us is to score the second goal, which we didn’t do.”RELATED     Arsenal also edge to within a point of north London rivals Tottenham and two clear of Manchester United in the four-way battle for the two remaining Champions League places behind Liverpool and Manchester City.     FA Cup finalists Watford were already shorn of the man who helped book their place at Wembley against Manchester City next month as Gerard Deulofeu missed out through injury and Javi Gracia’s side did themselves little favours early on.     Firstly, Foster dallied as Aubameyang closed in to concede a comical opener.     “I’ve said sorry to the lads,” said Foster. “I have tried to drag it on to my left and pass it out but before I knew it he (Aubameyang) was bloody on me.     “In hindsight, you have to get rid as quick as you can, even if it goes into row Z. I am definitely not a modern goalie. They can’t score from row Z.”      And within seconds, Deeney was punished for what the referee saw as an elbow into the face of Lucas Torreira.     “If it is a foul I have a doubt, maybe a yellow card but (a) red card, I don’t understand why the referee did it,” argued Watford boss Javi Gracia. However, the 10 men were still causing problems to a defensively vulnerable Arsenal at the other end.     Craig Cathcart’s shot was turned onto the post by Bernd Leno and the German goalkeeper was also a full stretch to turn an Etienne Capoue free-kick behind.     Emery introduced Mesut Ozil at half-time in an attempt to improve Arsenal’s final ball with so much space to counter-attack into, but to little avail.     Alex Iwobi looked to have provided the perfect cross to pick out Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Foster made amends for his earlier error by spreading himself to make a brilliant save from the Armenian.     Arsenal’s terrible away record is why they face such a tight battle to secure Champions League football next season. And they could have thrown just a second away league win since November away as Adam Masina crashed a 25-yard strike off the crossbar before Andre Gray miscontrolled Daryl Janmaat’s pass when clean through on Leno.     Gray was then denied by a last-ditch challenge from Ainsley Maitland-Niles after rounding Leno, but without the firepower of Deulofeu and Deeney, Watford’s brave effort fell just short.
