crew members of Norwegian cruise ship test positive for COVID-19

One of the first ships to resume cruising is having a COVID outbreak

Thirty-six crew members have examined positive for COVID-19 aboard Hurtigruten cruise line’s MS Roald Amundsen after the virus rippled through the ship, the Norwegian cruise company stated Saturday.

The outbreak scuttled a cruising scheduled for Friday.

Passengers on voyages that departed July 17 and July 24 have been contacted, according to the cruise line. The ship, a small ocean liner that can accommodate 530 passengers, has emptied of passengers and sits in dock in Tromsø, Norway, Hurtigruten stated. The rest of the crew of 158 tested negative, according to the cruise operator.

In the U.S., cruising is suspended. A no-sail order is set to last at least into the fall. Ocean liners are petri dishes for illnesses, and COVID-19 has spread quickly on ships.

In February, the Diamond Princess, docked in Japan, was found to carry more than 700 folks infected with corona virus.
