Coronavirus Update: Diamond Princess Passengers Leave Ship As Expert Slams Quarantine

Australians Clare Hedger and her mother are now free from a two-week quarantine on the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Yokohama, Japan. Health officials in Japan are being sharply criticized for their handling of the coronavirus quarantine on the ship.

A total of 621 people from the cruise ship have now been confirmed to have COVID-19 — or about 20% of the 3,011 people who had been tested for the coronavirus disease as of Wednesday.
