Malaysia has barred the entry of remaining passengers from a cruise ship docked in Cambodia after an American passenger tested positive for the new coronavirus upon her arrival in Kuala Lumpur.

The 83-year-old American woman, who arrived in Malaysia from Cambodia last week, was the first person from the MS Westerdam cruise ship to test positive for the virus, now called COVID-19.

She and her husband were found to have flu-like symptoms while going through the thermal scanner at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport last week, local media reported. Her husband tested negative for the virus, the reports said.
