Captain of Diamond Princess last to leave ship

Passengers say Captain Gennaro Arma did his best to keep quarantined passengers on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, where coronavirus spread to over 700 passengers, in good spirits with informative announcements, encouraging signs, and a sense of humor. He was the last to leave the boat after making sure everyone had disembarked safely.
