Westerdam disembarkation haulted by Malaysia authorities
« on: February 16, 2020, 07:48:48 AM »
"Malaysia said it won’t allow any more passengers who had traveled on the Westerdam luxury cruise ship to enter, after an American woman who flew into the country was diagnosed with the coronavirus."

"Malaysia canceled three other U.S.-chartered flights that were supposed to bring more Westerdam passengers into Kuala Lumpur, Deputy Prime Minister Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said Sunday."

By the sound of it, sailing to any port could result in being barred from entry if they find even one person who's found to have visited a country where there's been someone who had a confirmed case of the virus.
