Coronavirus: Three Kiwis are onboard Princess Cruises ship that had infected people on board

Three Kiwis are onboard a Princess Cruises ship that recently carried people who have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

This ship was being held in waters off California late Wednesday as officials sent kits to test passengers and crew who were showing symptoms of the illness.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, D, said during a news conference that he had asked that the Grand Princess, which left San Francisco on Feb. 21 for a voyage to Hawaii, avoid returning to the state until testing could be completed.

On Wednesday night, he said 21 people – 11 passengers and 10 crew members – were symptomatic and would be prioritised for testing, along with those who sailed on the previous voyage to Mexico with those who later became sick.
