First Post-Lockdown Greek Cruise Ship Crew Test Positive for Coronavirus

Sep 30, 2020

The first cruise ship to return to Greece since pandemic restrictions began to be eased, was docked on Tuesday morning following the discovery of a dozen coronavirus cases on board. Euro News reports that twelve crew members tested positive for coronavirus after 150 random samples were taken.

The Greek coastguard said all the passengers had been diagnosed as healthy after undergoing tests before boarding the Mein Schiff 6. No one has been allowed to disembark while Greek health care workers conduct tests on all of the 922 passengers and 666 crew members.

The cruise ship was the first to return to the waters since the country’s lockdown went into effect at the end of March. The vessel moored off the coast of the island of Milos on Monday after the detection of suspected COVID-19 cases, until it was instructed to head to Athens.
