Cruise ship misery
The largest outbreak outside of mainland China remains in Yokohama, a Japanese port south of Tokyo where a cruise ship has been under tight quarantine for a week now.
Japanese Health Minister Katsunobu Kato said an additional 40 virus cases had been confirmed on board the Diamond Princess as of Wednesday, bringing the total number on board to 175.
One of those new cases, Kato said, was a “quarantine officer,” who had come aboard the ship to help with testing passengers. He did not provide any further information on the officer; CNN is seeking further clarification.
