The two Sri Lankan crew members on board the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Yokohama, Japan are in good health and regularly in contact with their relatives in Sri Lanka, the Foreign Relations Ministry said today.

In a statement, the Ministry said the Sri Lankan Embassy in Tokyo is closely coordinating with the cruise company of the Diamond Princess in regard to the safety of the two Sri Lankans.

“The Embassy has informed that the two Sri Lankans who are crew members are in good health and are regularly in contact with their relatives in Sri Lanka,” it said.

Presently 454 persons are infected with New Coronavirus on the cruise ship and are being treated in hospitals in Kanagawa prefecture in Japan.

The ministry said the cruise company will need to complete the 14 day quarantine period to disembark the passengers, which will be by 19 and 20 February.

“However, the crew members will be quarantined a further period as per the requirement,” it said.
