Coral Princess Covid problems
« on: October 30, 2022, 06:40:34 PM »
"Thousands of people on-board a cruise ship off the coast of Western Australia could be left stranded for days after a COVID-19 outbreak.

Almost 2000 passengers could be forced to isolate for up to five days on-board the first large cruise ship to enter WA waters since the new cruise protocols came into effect following the height of the pandemic."

"Given the fact that there are around 2,000 guests and 900 crew members on the ship, this literally means that the remaining 10% tested positive for COVID-19. This results in 200 infected guests and 90 infected crew members (if Ms. Fitzgerald included crew members as “people on board”)."

It seems strange that it would be an Australian cruise where this occurred.
We haven't heard of to many other cases on other ships lately.
