Seven cases of coronavirus have now been confirmed among a group of 164 Australians who were evacuated from the virus-hit Diamond Princess cruise ship

The first group of Australians evacuated from China's Wuhan province to a Darwin camp are expected to be released following 14 days in quarantine.

About 266 people will leave the Howard Springs quarantine camp on Sunday, after they were evacuated earlier this month from the epicentre of the coronavirus at Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei province.It comes as the number of coronavirus cases among passengers evacuated from a cruise ship in Japan has risen, with a 57-year old Queensland woman testing positive on Saturday evening.

Seven cases have now been confirmed among the group of 164, who are also being kept at the facility near Darwin after leaving the virus-hit Diamond Princess cruise ship in Yokohama on Thursday. "This reaffirms the decision we made not just to conduct an airlift but to ensure that these people were in supervised quarantine in a separate area within the Howard Springs facility," federal Health Minister Greg Hunt told reporters on Saturday.

Not only the ship, there is a outbreak in Korea Japan and all over the world. Government should take actions before it’s too late. We will see.

Should have evacuated that ship on the first diagnosed case.

Those poor people must be worried sick.
