Tests on some passengers on a ship at port in Cambodia have not indicated the presence of coronavirus, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said in a video on Facebook, adding that all of them, including three Hungarians, were allowed to leave the vessel. The ship was denied port in several Asian countries due to the virus outbreak, Szijjártó said. Cambodian authorities have now tested passengers showing symptoms of the infection and all of them tested negative, he said. The minister added that the foreign ministry would assist the three Hungarians to come home should they so wish. Regarding another ship quarantined off the Japanese coast, Szijjártó said that although the number of coronavirus cases on the ship is on the rise, the three Hungarian employees are healthy. The quarantine should be lifted on Feb 19, he said.
