About 800 cases of coronavirus infection have been identified on the Majestic Princess cruise ship. The ship has already moored in the port of Sydney.
In total, there are more than 3,000 passengers and 1,000 crew members on board the liner. Most of the infected passengers, they are isolated in their cabins, writes ABC on Saturday, November 12th.
The cruise lasted 12 days. Halfway through the journey, the ship’s medical service began to record a sharp increase in the incidence of coronavirus. The Australian State of New South Wales Department of Health has also confirmed reports of a Covid-19 outbreak on the ship.
In March 2020, the authorities banned the entry and parking of liners in Australian ports after the crew of one of the ships hid the outbreak of covid. The passengers of this liner disembarked and dispersed throughout the country, which led to an increase in the incidence of covid in several states.
On April 18, 2022, this ban was lifted. The first liner with tourists left the ports of Australia only on June 1, 2022.
