  1. Ah, the ambiguity of the English language. Especially when presented as a headline.

    What the Irish Foreign Minister said was that there were some Irish nationals on board the ship which is quarantined due to a suspected infection.

    What it sounds like is that some Irish nationals are carriers of the infection…

  2. “They share dual citizenship with another EU country and do not normally live in Ireland”.

    So why does the bbc choose to highlight the Irish aspect of this situation?
