Shipping and coronavirus: monitor

Jan 26: So far, there are no reported or otherwise known, cases of coronavirus-infected seamen and/or any other virus-related incidents, like delays, quarantine, etc., occurring to merchant ships worldwide. Few known coronavirus-related cases are restricted to cruise and ferry shipping.

Singapore: On Jan 25 cruise ship GENTING DREAM (IMO 9733105) departure from Singapore was delayed, tourists at Marina Bay Cruise Centre had to wait in queues for several hours. Official statements denied any connection to coronavirus, but some passengers reported, that cruise line and Cruise Center personnel accidentally, spilled out the real reason behind delay – two tourists from China were found to be unwell, having symptoms of fever and pneumonia, both were taken to hospital (tourists spotted ambulance), the ship’s interior had to be disinfected and cleansed prior to tourists embarkation. GENTING DREAM left Singapore late at night Jan 25, bound for Port Klang, Malaysia.
