(INTELLIHUB) — Some 400 evacuated American citizens who traveled aboard the botched Diamond Princess cruise will be returning to the United States where they will be put under forced quarantine at U.S. military installations that have been approved and are equipped to deal with the deadly COVID-19 strain.

The ship, carrying over 3,700 passengers and crew, has been quarantined in Yokahama, Japan since early February.

About 400 U.S. passengers were evacuated on Sunday and will be put onto special flights back to the U.S. where they will be put under quarantine.

To daye 355 people aboard the vessel have become infected.

NBC News Asia correspondent Janis Frayer reports: “Some buses arriving to the Diamond Princess to begin to take American passengers to a repatriation flight.”

Forty-four of the Americans who took the cruise have been reported to be infected.

This brings the total quarantined on U.S. military installations to over one-thousand.

“Inside the plane transferring quarantined Americans to another quarantine. 12 hr flight, passengers not told where they are going,”  ABC 15 Reporter Adam Waltz Tweets.

The CDC and U.S. military along with state and local authorities are currently conducting “contact tracing” operations inside the U.S.
