Two South African nationals working aboard a cruise ship quarantined at sea have contracted coronavirus, according to the country’s health ministry.
The BBC reports that South Africa’s health ministry quoted Japanese officials as saying the two patients were not outwardly displaying symptoms of the virus but were being treated in Japan.
The vessel had at least 3,700 people on board, South Africa’s authorities said in a statement.
When a passenger, who disembarked in Hong Kong, tested positive for the virus at the end of January, the ship was quarantined for a four-week period, the statement added.
Ten other South African crew members are still onboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship, and won’t be allowed to disembark until they pass a two-week quarantine period and test negative for the virus.
