On January 20th, an 80-year-old Hong Kong passenger disembarked the ship and later visited a Hong Kong hospital where he was diagnosed with the coronavirus. On its next voyage the ship was in Japanese waters when 10 passengers tested positive for coronavirus.
The ship was then quarantined and 705 passengers tested positive for coronavirus.
There were 3,711 passengers and crew on the cruise ship.
Six weeks later there are 7 dead.
That means: 1% of those infected died from the virus.
