Coronavirus continues to spread on Princess Cruises’ Diamond Princess cruise ship that has been quarantined off the coast of Japan for a week. 

Princess Cruises announced Tuesday that 39 additional people have tested positive for coronavirus on Diamond Princess, bringing the total number of people on the ship that have fallen ill with the virus to 174; at least 20 of them are American. 

“We are following guidance from the Japan Ministry of Health on plans for disembarkation protocols to provide medical care for these new cases,” Princess Cruises said in a statement provided by Negin Kamali, director of public relations. 

The ship was carrying 2,666 guests and 1,045 crew when it set sail on Jan. 20 and is now quarantined at Yokohama pier. The Diamond Princess is scheduled to remain under quarantine until Feb. 19.

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,” Kamali added.
