Ships keep being hit by virus fears

Ships keep being hit by virus fears
Vietnamese authorities had to come up with official statement rebutting news on cruise ship WORLD DREAM visiting Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh Province, Gulf of Tonkin, with 3 passengers diagnosed later with coronavirus.

Vietnamese authorities had to come up with official statement rebutting news on cruise ship WORLD DREAM (IMO 9733117, Dream Cruises) visiting Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh Province, Gulf of Tonkin, with 3 passengers diagnosed later with coronavirus.

Three passengers that took the same cruise from China to Vietnam in January have been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, with a further two suspected of being infected, the South China Morning Post has learned.

The fact is, WORLD DREAM didn’t call Ha Long Bay on that specific 5-day cruise during Jan 19 - Jan 25 period, but the news raised concerns and fears to such an extent, that the authorities had to react and put the record straight.

In Japan meanwhile, cruise ship DIAMOND PRINCESS (IMO 9228198, Princess Cruise), with some 3,700 people on board, is placed under quarantine off Yokohama, because the Hong Kong man boarded the DIAMOND PRINCESS in Yokohama on Jan 20, got off at Hong Kong on Jan 25, and was found infected on Feb 1, in hospital in Hong Kong. Passengers and crew members are barred from leaving the ship until completing medical screening and ship’s interiors disinfection. The ship will likely be allowed to dock at the port in the evening Feb 4, or later, but as of 1730 Tokyo time Feb 4, she was still at anchor, in front of Yokohama. “Some guests onboard the ship are believed to be complaining of sickness” – but it’s impossible not to have several people, among 3,700, complaining of this or that queasiness. Indeed, with modern diagnostic technologies, number of absolutely healthy people is shrinking to zero.

Too much panic around, too many rumors, fears, false news and haste actions.
