Two more Canadians have been confirmed infected with the novel coronavirus but they are not home, instead they are on a cruise ship off Japan.

The pair were among the 10 people who tested positive after 10 initial cases were confirmed earlier in the week.

The ship has since been quarantined and will likely remain so for two weeks.

The cruise line says it will continue to fully co-operate with and follow the instructions of global medical authorities and the Japanese government.
