'Extremely scary': Canadian stuck on quarantined cruise ship growing fearful as coronavirus spreads


More than 40 new cases of coronavirus have been reported on a cruise ship quarantined off the coast of Japan, bringing the total to 61. Trudy Clement, a Canadian aboard the Diamond Princess, says she and her husband are fine so far, but "we don't know what's going to happen."  


At least 12 Americans have tested positive for the coronavirus, and at least 723 people have died worldwide among 34,000-plus cases.
Utah couple John and Melanie Haering are on board the Diamond Princess, the cruise ship quarantined in Japan on which more than 170 passengers and crew have confirmed cases of coronavirus. John has now become sick, although he has not been diagnosed with coronavirus. And he and his wife Melanie are confined to their cabin. Inside Edition spoke with the couple about their experience so far on their vacation gone wrong.
