And for the cruise liners that were stuck in quarantine, it was still limbo.
But one has received some more positive news.
The MS Westerdam has finally been allowed to dock in Cambodia - after being turned away by Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Guam and the Philippines over fears that someone on the aboard may have the coronavirus - despite there being no confirmed cases.
American Angela Jones was one of its passengers.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) MS WESTERDAM PASSENGER, ANGELA JONES, SAYING:
"We have been floating around for about two weeks now and many countries have closed their border off to us for fear of the coronavirus. But, we have now been isolated for almost two weeks and checked regularly for temperatures and still no sign of any coronavirus. It's so scary not be able to plan or...the unknown is definitely something that evokes fear."
As for that other ship docked in Japan's Yokohama harbor - the number of infected aboard there has climbed to 175.
The Diamond Princess is the largest cluster of cases is outside China. There's 3,700 people on board.
More than 1,100 people have died from the virus in mainland China.
