One of the worst places that you could be in when there’s an outbreak is a cruise ship, that’s for sure. This is what happened to a Singapore ship these days, according to the latest reports. Check out the complete details below.
Reuters press agency just noted a few minutes ago that there’s a Genting Cruise Lines’ ship on a “cruise to nowhere” which has returned to Singapore.
This took place right after a passenger was suspected of having contracted COVID-19 and the nearly 3,000 passengers and crew on board have been confined to their cabins.
Reuters made sure to point out the fact that a 40-year-old passenger tested positive to a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test onboard.
The person had been conveyed to hospital for further testing after the ship docked early on Wednesday, the Singapore Tourism Board said.
Here’s what the board said in a statement:
“The passenger was identified as a close contact of a confirmed case on land, and was immediately isolated as part of onboard health protocols.”
The passengers on the boat have all said that they had been prepared for such risks from the beginning. We suggest that you check out the complete article in order to learn more available details about this issue.

Earlier today, we revealed that there is a lack of enough vaccination in the US and all around the world these days, and according to expert opinions, this could trigger some terrible effects. Here’s what an expert had to say.
“Transmission will continue to accelerate … and the ones who will also pay the price, in addition to the unvaccinated adolescents, are the little kids who depend on the adults and adolescents to get vaccinated in order to slow or halt transmission.”
