OTTAWA, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- A Canadian who returned to Canada Friday after being aboard a coronavirus-stricken cruise ship in Japan has tested negative for the illness while under quarantine, local media reported Saturday.
The person was feeling unwell after arriving in Canada and was tested for the virus but the results came back negative. No other details were provided.
A plane chartered by the Canadian government brought 129 Canadians and their families to Canadian Forces Base Trenton in Ontario on Friday morning for a 14-day quarantine. They had been confined to cabins aboard the Diamond Princess Ship for weeks.
They were all tested for the virus by the Japanese side before they left the ship, which has been docked in Yokohama, Japan since early February. None of them showed symptoms of the novel coronavirus upon arrival in Canada.
