|Title:||At least 542 passengers and crew on the Diamond Princess have been infected by the Covid-19 virus.|
|Abstract:||At least 542 passengers and crew on the Diamond Princess have been infected by the Covid-19 virus - the biggest cluster outside mainland China. Passengers have described the difficult quarantine situation on the vessel. Several nations are evacuating their citizens from the ship as infections continue to rise. On Sunday the US removed hundreds of its citizens from the ship and placed them in quarantine. The UK said it hopes to fly 74 British nationals on the Diamond Princess back "later this week". A British couple on the ship - who had been giving regular updates to journalists and via social media - confirmed on Wednesday that they had tested positive for the virus.|
