Japan's health minister has said, the last cruise ship passengers who tested negative for novel coronavirus will leave the Diamond Princess today. The ship docked at a Yokohama port has the most COVID-19 cases outside of China, with 634 confirmed by yesterday evening. Two former passengers have died.

Health Minister Katsunobu Kato told a news conference in Tokyo that the mass disembarkation into Japan of passengers from the ship is set to end today. The Minister said, dozens of foreign passengers are flying back to their home countries on flights chartered by their governments.

He said, most crew members and other passengers who have not completed their 14-day quarantines as they had more recent contact with infected people are staying on the ship for now. But they will be transported to a government facility to be quarantined in isolation. The Minister said, Japan is discussing with the ship operator and home countries of foreign crew members over their future movements.
