@PabloStafforini 3700 is the total number of people on the ship. The number of people who have actually tested positive is only 706.

Also, 7/3700 = .189%, not 1.89%.

CDC now has level 3 warnings for Argentina and Panama, according to the listing.

I think the total is 55.

Only vaguely related, but it's a bit annoying that editing a question resets the category to Biology instead of keeping it at its previous value.
