Coronavirus: One more Indian tests positive on cruise ship Diamond Princess

In Japan, one more Indian aboard a quarantined cruise ship Diamond Princess has been tested positive for the novel coronavirus taking the number of Indian nationals infected with the virus on the vessel to seven. In a tweet, the Indian Embassy in Tokyo said, the person has been shifted to hospital. The mission said that infected Indians were responding well to the treatment.

Among the 3,711 passengers and crew on the ship, 621 people have been found to be infected with the new coronavirus so far. Yesterday, 88 people tested positive and a day earlier 99 others were found to have been infected. A total of 138 Indians, including 132 crew and 6 passengers, were among the 3,711 people on board the ship that arrived at the Japanese coast earlier this month.

Meanwhile, passengers began leaving the ship today after the end of a two-week quarantine period that failed to stop the spread of the virus among passengers and crew.

A Japanese newspaper today reported that about 500 passengers were expected to leave today. It said, the Japanese officials will spend several days staging the high-stakes evacuation of about 2,000 others.

China, where the virus outbreak occurred, is grappling to contain the deadly disease as the fatalities crossed the 2,000-mark today with the death of 136 more people, mostly in the worst-hit Hubei province.

Many countries have banned arrivals from China while major airlines have suspended flights to the country.
