2,300 cruise passengers including dozens of Britons are ordered back on board their ship off of Greece and told not to leave after it is revealed former passenger has coronavirus

Cruise ship passengers were kept on an ocean liner in yet another coronavirus scare at sea today after a former shipmate tested positive in Italy.

Some 2,300 people - including 39 Britons - were called back on board the MSC Opera from an excursion in Athens today and told not to leave the ship.

Once they returned, the captain revealed that an Austrian tourist who left the ship on February 28 had been infected with the virus.

The virus patient, a man, had disembarked in Genoa in northern Italy, the region at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak in Europe.
