Breaking: 99 more people test positive for coronavirus

A report by CNN indicates that 99 more people from the Diamond Princess cruise ship have tested positive for novel coronavirus.

This information was disclosed by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare on Monday, February 17.

Since the outbreak, this is the largest single-day increase of cases stemming from the ship to date. This is following reports that several countries are preparing to emulate the United States to evacuate their citizens from the ship.

There are now a total of 456 cases originating from the Diamond Princess, which had around 3,600 people quarantined onboard over coronavirus fears -- more than 10% of everybody on the ship.

The new cases brings the total number of coronavirus cases in Japan to 513 -- by far the highest number of cases outside of mainland China.
