Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan now has 135 cases

The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus on the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship has nearly doubled. 

Sixty-six more people, including another 11 Americans, have fallen ill on the Princess Cruises cruise ship that is quarantined off the coast of Japan, meaning at least 135 passengers onboard have been diagnosed with coronavirus. At least 20 Americans in total have been diagnosed onboard. 

The ship was carrying 2,666 guests and 1,045 crew onboard when it set sail on Jan. 20.

Due to the quarantine, “it was not unexpected that additional cases would be reported involving individuals who were exposed prior to the start of the quarantine,” Princess Cruises said in a statement provided by Negin Kamali, director of public relations. The cruise line is working to confirm the total number of cases and the nationalities of all those infected.

Princess Cruises is working with authorities to plan for the passengers who have recently become ill to disembark so that they can be taken to a hospital.
