The first passengers have begun disembarking from the virus-hit cruise ship moored off Yokohama, Japan after 14 days of quarantine.

An outbreak of the Covid-19 virus has seen at least 542 passengers and crew infected on the Diamond Princess – the biggest cluster outside mainland China.

Passengers have described the difficult quarantine situation on the vessel.

Some nations are evacuating their citizens from the ship as infections continue to rise.

Covid-19 has now claimed 2,004 lives in China, according to the latest Chinese data released on Wednesday.
