An eruption on a cruise sailing in the Mediterranean


One of the first cruise ships to resume its voyage in the Mediterranean since the world cruise was halted in March, is currently facing an outbreak of the corona plague on board.

This is a Mein Schiff 6, with 2,550 passengers and crew on board. Of these, about 12 coronary heart disease patients have been detected so far.

The ship began its voyage a few days ago. The departure point was from the port of Heraklion in Crete, Greece, and was expected to pass for seven nights around various islands in the country. Currently, the ship has docked at the port of Piraeus which is near the capital Athens.

According to the tourism company TUI, to which the ship belongs, about a dozen patients have indeed been found so far and they were immediately transferred to isolation on board. The next step is to do an additional corona test for all the patients to make sure that the patients are indeed positive and then do a speed test for all the passengers on board. According to the company, some of those who were positive in the first test were found negative in the second test. In addition, the company states that none of the infected have symptoms.

Currently after the various tests the cruise is expected to continue as usual and the company will continue to do frequent checks to make sure there is no uncontrolled spread.

As you may recall, at the beginning of the outbreak of the corona virus in the world, back in February, the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which sailed off the coast of Japan, became a symbol of the spread of the virus when3,700 passengers and crew were placed in a 14-day quarantine after hundreds of passengers were found positive. There were also 15 Israeli passengers on board, 4 of whom were infected with the virus.
