Passengers from the MS Westerdam cruise ship were allowed to leave their hotel in Phnom Penh on Thursday, after all their tests for the novel coronavirus came back negative.

Footage shows passengers leaving the Sokha Hotel, to board a bus that would take them to the Cambodian capital’s airport.

The MS Westerdam docked in Cambodia on February 13, after being denied entry to several other ports.

The death toll of the virus, which has been declared by the WHO as a "global health emergency" has overtaken the SARs epidemic of the early 2000s, claiming the lives of 1,775.

Around 70,500 persons have been infected in China alone with more than 370 cases declared in over 25 other countries, including Germany, the UK and the US. Three deaths have been confirmed outside China; in France, Japan and the Philippines.
