Former Diamond Princess cruise ship passenger Spencer Fehrenbacher shared details of his stay at the Travis Air Force base near Fairfield, California, on the fourth day of a two-week quarantine on Friday.

Fehrenbacher said he was feeling "real hopeful and optimistic about the future," and that it was expected for evacuees to start being tested on that day.

Fehrenbacher showed the breakfast provided to him, comprised of a banana, jelly, a type of bread roll, yogurt, prunes, quiche, meat, potatoes and a sanitary wipe. Fehrenbacher expressed satisfaction with the food.

Lunch was shown by the evacuee to be made up of pasta salad, a turkey sandwich, an apple and a cookie. The meal came accompanied by a letter giving updates about the quarantine.

Diamond Princess evacuees are being quarantined for 14 days on the base, as the total number of confirmed cases on the cruise ship hit 454.

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.
