An early warning indication alerted most Japanese citizens with a television overlay on the afternoon of Friday, February 14, 2020. It was later confirmed in the day by Okinawa Times, with a rough translation of the coronavirus in Okinawa impacting the health of a 60-year-old female taxi driver that took a few passengers from the Diamond Princess—a cruise ship that docked in Naha City, allowing any, and mostly all passengers to disembark the ship in early February 2020—on a tour of southern Okinawa aggregated and curated on the Okinawa blog.
