70 more cases were confirmed yesterday Sunday, on board the Diamond Princess cruise ship.
A total of 355 people are infected with coronavirus on the ‘Diamond Princess’ cruise, the largest outbreak of the virus outside China.
The U.S. government has ordered the evacuation of the more than 400 U.S. passengers on the cruise ship now under quarantine for coronavirus in the Japanese port of Yokohama, to complete another 14 days of isolation at home. “We are deeply grateful to the cruise liner and the Japanese government for working so diligently to contain and control the spread of the disease,” according to a statement from the U.S. Embassy.
