The Grand Princess, another cruise ship that was quarantined off the coast of California, had 78 positive cases of COVID-19 out of 469 people tested.

A report in The Australian, citing "several state government MPs", said Ms Berejiklian told a party-room meeting of Liberals that the Australian Border Force ultimately made the decision to allow the passengers ashore.

Researchers, in their study report, revealed that asymptomatic infections are one of the main reasons behind the drastic rise of the Covid-19 attack among passengers and crew members in the crew ship.

The ship is due to arrive at Freemantle Port on Friday where the 800 Australian residents - 200 of whom are from WA - will disembark. So we can't say for sure whether people would have been infected if they had come into contact with the surfaces where the virus was still present.

In a statement, Mr McGowan instructed "All Australians, including the West Australians, will be immediately transferred to Rottnest Island for 14 days of self-isolation". About 109 passengers are from New Zealand and 33 from the United Kingdom.

The ship's operator, Cruise and Maritime Voyages Australia, said it was disappointed it was not told that its docking permission had been rescinded before McGowan announced it to the media.
