White House officials appeared to have suspicions about the accuracy of China’s reporting of coronavirus cases. According to a report Saturday, the U.S. did not have high confidence in the information coming from China regarding the number of those affected by the disease.

This came as a number of officials have expressed doubt that China is being fully transparent, including White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

Last week, Kudlow addressed ongoing concerns following a change in China’s measuring criteria, which added 15,000 cases in a single day.

“We thought there was better transparency coming out of China, but it doesn’t appear to be,” stated the economic advisor. “It’s the great unknown and I wish we did know more because, you know, this should not be about politics or for that matter, trade.”

Chinese officials said the number of new cases are dropping overall.

In the meantime, another large group of people aboard a quarantined cruise ship in Japan tested positive for the deadly coronavirus. The country’s health minister stated Saturday that another 67 passengers on Diamond Princess have been affected, bringing the total to nearly 300 cases.

Officials also said Tokyo was coordinating with the U.S. to evacuate Americans aboard the ship and return them to the states. There are more than 400 U.S. citizens on board.

“Based on a request by the U.S. government, I understand that the Japanese government and the U.S. government are coordinating to allow Americans aboard Diamond Princess to disembark and depart our country using a U.S. chartered plane.” stated Katsunobu Kato, Japanese Health Minister.

The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo said a chartered plane would arrive Sunday evening and suggested “out of an abundance of caution” that its citizens leave and return home for further monitoring.

If they choose not to return on the flight, they will not be able to return home “for a period of time.”

Officials from the French Health Ministry reported an 80-year-old Chinese tourist succumbed to the coronavirus on Saturday, marking the first virus-related death in Europe since the outbreak began. Up to this point, the only deaths outside of China have been reported in Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines.

The man’s daughter also contracted the virus, but is expected to be released soon. The man and his daughter were both from the Hubei province in China, which officials are calling the epicenter of the outbreak.

“He was hospitalized at the Bichat Hospital under strict isolation measures on January 25th,” stated Health Minister Agnès Buzyn. “His condition deteriorated rapidly, he was in a critical state for several days and he was in intensive care.”

France has confirmed 11 cases of coronavirus so far.

Meanwhile, President Trump has applauded his administration for its efforts to contain the coronavirus. The president shared a poll during his remarks to the National Border Patrol Council on Friday, which said a majority of American voters approve of his handling of the virus.

This came after he previously received criticism for temporarily banning residents of the Hubei province.

“’61 percent of the voters approve of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus,’” stated President Trump. “I was criticized by a lot of people at the beginning because we were the first, we’d never done it before, we closed our borders to certain areas.”

As of Friday night, there are 15 people in the U.S. infected with the virus. The president said many of them are getting better and reiterated his theory the virus could weaken as the weather gets warmer.
