Diamond Princess, a luxury cruise ship, was halted at Yokohama Harbor outside Tokyo, Japan's capital, because a passenger had been diagnosed with the coronavirus. Of the 3711 passengers on board, 634 were infected.
These included eight Indians. They are undergoing treatment. The Indian embassy in Japan said that their health has improved. Arrangements are underway to ensure the safe evacuation of 130 non-infected Indians.
