Canadian passengers who spent weeks stuck in their cabins aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship have arrived in Cornwall, Ontario. They were flown out of Japan overnight, then bused to a NAV Canada centre, where they will spend an additional quarantine period. Forty-seven Canadians are still in Japan receiving treatment for the new coronavirus.

Also today, the Canadian evacuees from Wuhan, China are being released from quarantine at CFB Trenton, Ontario.

Health Minister Patty Hajdu (HY'-doo) says the government is helping them with their travel plans.
