Four more die outside China

News Desk: Four more coronavirus patients died- two on the stuck-up Japanese cruise vessel and two another two in Iran. A Japanese man and woman aboard the Diamond Princess who had the coronavirus have died, according to the Japan Times. Government officials told the Japan Times that the victims were in their 80s. About 500 passengers left the Diamond Princess cruise ship Wednesday at the end of a much-criticized two-week quarantine that failed to stop the spread of the new virus among passengers and crew. Meanwhile, two people who were diagnosed with coronavirus in Iran have died, a state-run news agency has reported. The IRNA news agency said the two victims were elderly Iranian citizens. IRNA quoted Alireza Vahabzadeh, a health ministry official, who said both victims were located in Qom, about 86 miles (140km) south of the capital, Tehran. Officials had confirmed the cases earlier on Wednesday.
