Cruise ships are still hotbeds of coronavirus
Last year, the cruise ship industry slowly began to recover, but in a short time several "floating hotbeds" of coronavirus were opened..
On Monday morning, the five-day saga in the port of Lisbon ended when passengers left the deck of a ship on which dozens of cases of coronavirus were detected.
There were only 4,000 passengers on the ship. The ship spent several days - since December 29 - off the coast of Portugal, but it was unclear what fate awaits it.
On board, the coronavirus was detected in 64 people, and 12 cases were confirmed on Sunday. From the port of Lisbon, people were taken by bus to the airport.
In a similar way, the voyage of the cruise ship, which docked near Rome on Tuesday, ended. Approximately 150 cases of coronavirus have been detected on the MCS Grandiosa vessel. Dozens of people were able to get off at the port of Genoa, and then about 100 infected people went. In total, there are about 4,000 passengers on this ship.
A lot of similar cases were registered last year.
