The CDC said the confirmed and suspected cases were part of 99 outbreaks on 123 cruise ships. U.S. Coast Guard data shows that as of 10 July, there were 67 ships with 14,702 crew onboard.

The No Sail Order will continue until at least September 30 unless the director of the CDC modifies it before then.
