Japan puzzled by outbreak on cruise ship

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese officials are investigating an outbreak of the coronavirus among crew members of a cruise ship in Nagasaki, which has puzzled authorities because the southern port city has a relatively low number of infections and the vessel has been docked for almost three months. The outbreak on the Italian-operated Costa Atlantica surfaced on Tuesday when officials from Nagasaki and Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, which is in charge of repairs and maintenance on the ship, announced that a crew member developed a cough and fever. By yesterday, 47 crew have tested positive for the virus, a Nagasaki prefectural official Hironori Hashiguchi said. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
