Sydney, The ship has been docked in the Australian city of Sydney after 800 passengers on a holiday cruise tested positive for Corona. According to the BBC, about 4,600 passengers and crew were on board the Majestic Princess cruise ship that arrived at Circular Quay after departing New Zealand, of whom one in every five passengers had corona. Marguerite Fitzgerald, president of cruise operator Carnival Australia, said halfway through the 12-day voyage, a large number of cases had begun to be detected.
Patients with mild symptoms more
After a large number of cases came, the ship was stirred, after which it was decided to stop the ship in Sydney in a hurry. Marguerite Fitzgerald said all cases were mild or asymptomatic. He said that ‘staff will assist all the guests who have tested positive with access to private transport and accommodation to complete the quarantine period. The ship will soon leave for Melbourne.
Let us tell you that at the beginning of 2020, at least 900 people had corona in the Ruby Princess cruise ship of the same company, in which 28 died. Now again 800 people being corona positive has raised many questions.
When asked about the comparison between the Majestic Princess and the Ruby Princess, Fitzgerald said, “Since then, we have learned a lot as a community, learned a lot about Covid.” Corona cases are increasing continuously in Australia too. In New South Wales, 19,800 new cases have been reported in seven days since Friday.
