Japan's Health Ministry says 88 further people from Diamond Princess diagnosed with coronavirus, bringing the total to 542, according to NHK. 

The Diamond Princess, owned by Carnival Corp, has been quarantined since arriving in Yokohama, southwest of Tokyo, on Feb 3, after a man who disembarked in Hong Kong before it traveled to Japan was diagnosed with the virus.

The ship, with about 3,700 passengers and crew, has the most coronavirus infections outside China. Those testing positive are transferred to Japanese hospitals. No one from the ship has died of the virus.
