Another Cruise Ship Turned Away from Caribbean Port On Coronavirus Concerns
A Caribbean country has rejected yet another cruise ship on Thursday, in an attempt to prevent coronavirus from becoming established in its country.
Yesterday we blogged that Jamaica and the Cayman Islands denied entry to the MSC Meraviglia due to concerns that the ship was carrying someone sick with coronavirus. Now, TheHill.com reports that the Dominican Republic has denied entry to the Braemar due to similar concerns.
The report says that the Braemar reported “a small number of influenza-like cases on board.” The company added that the sick travelers are now feeling better.
The Dominican Health Minister, Rafael Sánchez Cárdenas, says that officials have told the Braemar to return to its destination.
