Coronavirus cluster found on cargo ship in Australia, send 'em to the ol' folks homes and giv'em jobs

Coronavirus cluster found on cargo ship in Australia

A total of six people on the Al Kuwait have tested positive for Covid-19.

A coronavirus cluster has been detected on a freight ship berthed in the Australian west coast port of Fremantle.

Six of 48 crew members from the Al Kuwait tested positive for the virus four days after the livestock carrier arrived from the United Arab Emirates on Friday, Western Australia state Premier Mark McGowan said.

The six infected crew were transferred to hotel quarantine in the nearby city of Perth while health officials consider what to do with the remaining 42 people on board, he said.

The ship’s cargo of 56,000 sheep is being held at a facility near the port.

They were to be loaded within days and cannot be returned to farms because of quarantine restrictions, Mr McGowan said.

Authorities expect more crew members will get sick and the ship will need a deep cleaning before it can leave.

Two federal government departments strongly disagreed with the Western Australian government’s account of how the Kuwait-registered ship was permitted to dock.

Mr McGowan said the Al Kuwait left the United Arab Emirates on May 7 and was given permission by Australia’s Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment last Wednesday to berth at Fremantle despite the vessel’s report that three crew members had elevated temperatures.

Get ready, there will be another pandemic

Ha, another ship like the rugby princess stir up to divert attention away from the Greg Mortimer incident, don't hear too much about it, naturally. A whole ship full of people riddled with coronavirus, calling for help, left to either test negative ( or die.) ( of cause they Eventually rescued their Own sickened people and a few scraggly neighbours, then they just took off and left all the Americans and Europeans out there in the ocean, sick and destitute ) Love, humanity, compassion went out the window.
