Japanese authorities are mulling whether to allow some passengers disembark from the "Diamond Princess" cruise ship earlier than planned, as they are suffering from illnesses and mental stress on the ship where 135 people have been confirmed infected with the novel coronavirus.

The ship has been kept in quarantine at the port of Yokohama since a Hong Kong passenger on board was found infected with the virus on Feb 5.

According to the latest data, 439 of the over 3,700 passengers received tests for the virus over 30 percent of the tested were confirmed positive. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20200212/8135004.shtml#!language=1
