Cruise ship returned to Singapore ahead of schedule due to COVID-19
The passenger ship Dream Cruises, which departed from Singapore on a cruise, had to return back ahead of schedule. The reason was a positive test for COVID-19 in one of the passengers on board, according to CNA.
Prior to that, all passengers were informed about a case of suspected coronavirus infection. In this connection, the activities on board were suspended, and the ship returned to Singapore ahead of schedule.
The Dream Cruises crew also clarified that it was possible to identify people who were in contact with the sick coronavirus. Their tests for the virus came back negative. However, people who have interacted with the infected will still leave the ship first.
Since November 2020, the Singapore authorities have allowed such travel. During the swim, the vessel goes out to the open sea for several days without calling in other countries.
Previously, scientists told how long the symptoms of coronavirus can persist. These manifestations include cough, shortness of breath, constant fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, and cardiovascular disease.
