A statistical study of data collected from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, which was quarantined off the coast of Japan for almost a month with several coronavirus infected passengers, suggests that almost 20 percent of people who contract the coronavirus never develop any symptoms, according to a report published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday.

Almost 2,000 anxious passengers aboard a crippled Norwegian Cruise Line ship that has been turned away from multiple emergency ports of call due to the coronavirus pandemic disembarked in Honolulu on Monday amid a stay-at-home order for local residents. "We are happy to assist in these dynamic and challenging times", said Governor Ige.

The ship needs repairs to its propulsion mechanism which requires that there are non on board, the Hawaii Department of Transportation said. Guests will now board chartered flights home starting today, March 23.

Charter flights have been arranged for ship passengers on Monday and Tuesday from Honolulu to Los Angeles, California; Sydney, Australia; London, UK; Vancouver, British Columbia; and Frankfurt, Germany, the company said, adding that passengers will go through "enhanced medical screening" before they are allowed to disembark the ship. The last time passengers were allowed to disembark was in Fiji on March 11, according to Sakahara. "Coordinating transportation and chartered flights for 2,000 people from around the world required confirming logistical details throughout various federal, state and private agencies", said Director Jade Butay, Hawaii Department of Transportation.

The Cruise Lines International Association said that about 40 ships with 90,000 passengers were at sea when President Donald Trump announced a ban last week that restricts travel by many foreigners to the U.S. Anyone displaying symptoms such as a fever will be examined by doctors. Throughout the entire process, they were completely separated from other travelers not associated with the cruise ship.

On Thursday, the Norwegian Cruise Line said the Norwegian Jewel was turned away by Fiji and New Zealand. Additional flights may be scheduled.

The ship entered Honolulu Harbor on Sunday afternoon. There are 25 Hawaii residents on the ship, with 13 from Oahu, eight from Maui, three from the Big Island and one from Kauai.

There are no confirmed cases of the coronavirus among the ship's 2,000 passengers and 1,000 crew members, the transportation department said.

The public should be aware of the U.S. Department of State global level 4 health advisory stating U.S. citizens should avoid all worldwide travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.
