Royal Caribbean passengers test negative in New Jersey

Passengers on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship docked in Bayonne, New Jersey, due to concerns over the novel coronavirus had their fears put to rest Saturday night.

Gov. Phil Murphy tweeted that four passengers sent to the hospital tested negative for coronavirus, reports NorthJersey.com, which is part of the USA TODAY Network. 

“All four passengers from the cruise ship docked in Bayonne tested negative for novel coronavirus. New Jersey currently has no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus and the risk to residents remains low.”

Three of the four people stayed in a cabin together and were diagnosed with the flu. The other person stayed in a separate cabin and did not have any symptoms, Murphy said.

The respiratory illness has killed more than 800 people in China, where the outbreak began late last year, according to the World Health Organization, and there are now more than 37,000 cases worldwide.
