In February, during the beginning of the outbreak, the Diamond Princess represented the largest cluster of coronavirus cases outside of mainland China, as 712 people who were aboard the boat contracted the virus.

"The results of testing of passengers and crew on board the Diamond Princess demonstrated a high proportion (46.5%) of asymptomatic infections at the time of testing", the study states.

The document noted that this data can not be used for the determination of whether the transmission of the virus took place from the infected surfaces or not.

As the Ruby Princess case numbers rose, officials denied passengers on the Swiss-owned MSC Magnific cruise permission to disembark on the west coast, despite MSC Cruises' assurances that none showed any signs of a respiratory or flu-like illness. On the Diamond Princess, transmission occurred primarily between passengers before quarantine was implemented, while crew infections peaked after quarantine. The cabins had yet to be disinfected when this study occurred.

There have been more than 43,000 confirmed cases in the United States of the infection, also known as COVID-19, which has been blamed for 553 known deaths. An estimated 30 million passengers are transported on 272 cruise ships worldwide each year.

Many of the Covid-19 patients who were on the Ruby Princess got onto public transport and commercial airlines and spread the Coronavirus around the nation. The longest duration of "viral shedding", the process in which the virus leaves the cells, was 37 days.

In America, it is known as "New World " hantaviruses, while in Europe and Asia, it is known as "Old World" hantaviruses. The symptoms of Hantavirus are similar to novel coronavirus , which includes headache, fever, abdominal pain, etc.

New South Wales (NSW) state identified 149 new coronavirus cases overnight, bringing the state total to 818, and the national toll to 1,886 cases.

Passengers returning from cruises have also been linked to cases "in at least 15 states", with reports of "secondary community-acquired cases linked to returned passengers on cruises", according to the study.

"Cruise ships are often settings for outbreaks of infectious diseases due to their closed environment and contact between travelers from many countries", said the CDC.

Researchers recommended that all persons around the world defer travel on cruise ships during the pandemic.

The CDC reiterated that the virus and the disease it causes, covid-19, "poses a risk for rapid spread of disease [on cruise ships], causing outbreaks in a vulnerable population, and aggressive efforts are required to contain spread".

"NSW Health is constantly reviewing evidence and working with clinicians to provide the most appropriate care for people affected by COVID-19".
