60 more on cruise ship test positive

Officials in Nagasaki, western Japan, have confirmed nearly 60 more coronavirus infections among the crew of a cruise ship docked at a port in the prefecture.

That brings the total number of cases on the vessel to almost 150.

All 623 crew members onboard the Italian-registered Costa Atlantica have now been tested.

The ship stopped at Nagasaki for repair work in a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries shipyard.

Officials say one crew member is in serious condition at a hospital in Nagasaki, but no other serious cases have been reported from the ship.
