An Israeli woman who was a passenger aboard the coronavirus-hit cruise ship in Yokohama tested positive upon returning to her home country Friday, Israel's health ministry said.

She was one of 11 Israeli passengers who were brought back to Israel after being aboard the cruise liner Diamond Princess, which was quarantined off Yokohama shortly after arrival on Feb. 3 with 3,700 people aboard.

The woman was being held in quarantine in the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, near Tel Aviv, health officials said.
