Japan has confirmed 60 more coronavirus cases among crew members on an Italian cruise ship currently docked in the western Japanese city of Nagasaki for repairs, reported Reuters citing Japanese local news reports.
That brought the total number of cases on the Costa Atlantica to about 150. The ship is carrying 623 crew members and no passengers.
All crew members have been tested, the report said. Japanese authorities had ordered the crew not to venture beyond the quay except for hospital visits, but it discovered this week that some crew members had left without their knowledge. Officials are checking on details of their movements.
