After two weeks in quarantine, 244 passengers disembarked from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Yokohama, Japan, on Thursday, according to the Japanese Health Ministry.

These people had tested negative for the coronavirus, and were free to leave the vessel and travel.

The ministry also told CNN that it expected 800 passengers to disembark on Wednesday but only 443 left the ship. CNN previously reported 800 disembarked on Wednesday alone.
