    > "During the evacuation process, after passengers had disembarked the ship and initiated transport to the airport, U.S. officials received notice that 14 passengers, who had been tested 2-3 days earlier, had tested positive for COVID-19," the State Department and Department of Health and Human Services said in a joint statement, referring to the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

    > Nearly 1,000 passengers and crew members aboard the Westerdam cruise ship in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, were being tested for the coronavirus on Monday after a passenger who had already disembarked tested positive for the virus, officials said.

    > With the discovery of the infected passenger – an ailing American woman who was screened at an airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – the exodus of passengers has come to a halt.
