Coronavirus outbreaks were recorded on two cruise ships a few weeks after the resumption of sea travel, The Guardian reports.

It is reported that the ship MS Roald Amundsen, which entered the Norwegian port of Tromso, confirmed the coronavirus in 40 people, including the crew. Norway acknowledged that it may have released the Covid-19 outbreak out of control when 178 passengers were allowed to leave the ship in Tromso. This significantly complicated the search for contact persons of the infected.
