The Nagasaki Prefectural Government on Saturday announced that 57 new coronavirus infections had been confirmed among the crew of an Italian cruise ship docked there.

With testing of all crew members now complete, the new number brings the total aboard the Costa Atlantica to 148, accounting for roughly a quarter of the vessel's 623-member crew. No passengers were aboard.

The infection cluster in Nagasaki comes as hospitals are running out of beds in some parts of Japan, where the national tally of virus cases has risen above 12,800. Some 345 people have died.
