Diamond Princess cruise ship workers trapped in virus outbreak

As hundreds of passengers leave the Diamond Princess cruise ship after a two-week quarantine, some are awaiting the results of a test to determine whether they have the coronavirus COVID-19 that has infected more than 540 on the vessel.
It is a nail-biting situation for many, not least for some of the ship’s Filipino crew members who say they are working under duress.
