Numbers of the coronavirus continue to climb.


Two East Tennessee natives are being quarantined on the diamond princess cruise ship near Japan while others are being evacuated on flights to the United States.


Dr. Arnold and Jeannie Hopland will remain in quarantine after Mrs. Hopland tested positive with the coronavirus along with 99 other passengers of the ship, bringing the total number to 454 in Japan.


Dr. Arnold tested negative for the virus but said he will remain with his wife.


The other passengers from the United States that tested negative for the virus will be flown to a California or Texas Air Force base and will have to be quarantined for two more weeks.
