Coronavirus latest: At last! Passengers on doomed cruise ship FINALLY allowed off vessel 1

Almost 2,000 passengers and crew members on board the MS Westerdam cruise ship have started to disembark amid fears passengers may have contracted the deadly coronavirus.

The move comes after Cambodia offered passengers a safe harbour yesterday.

Despite the panic, none of the passengers have tested positive for the coronavirus at this stage.

The traumatised cruise goers were greeted by Prime Minister Hun Sen, who handed them flowers.

 

Earlier on Friday, Japan claimed it would step up its testing and containment efforts in a bid to halt the outbreak’s worrying growth.

The country’s health minister advised the public a woman in her 80s had died as a result of the virus.

They added that there were other cases of the virus which had been found in residents, which included a taxi driver and doctor.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said: “We will stay in touch with local governments and expand our testing procedures and treatment of patients in order to prevent the spread of the illness.”

So far, his Japanese Government has promised 10.3bn yen (£71.9m) to stop the virus.
