MSC Meraviglia denied entry to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Mexico
« on: February 27, 2020, 01:54:18 PM »
After being turned away from two ports in the Caribbean over coronavirus fears, the MSC Cruises’ Meraviglia ship has arrived in Mexico and will dock in the port of Cozumel.

The Meraviglia, which is carrying over 6,000 people, was denied entry at permission to dock in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Georgetown, Cayman Islands on Tuesday after it was reported that a crew member from the Philippines was ill. Local authorities feared the man may be sick with the COVID-19 coronavirus.

I wonder how many other ports will follow suit?
