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.
The second cruise ship that has identified the coronavirus outbreak, Paul Gauguin, is currently off the coast of Tahiti.
The vessel was between Bora Bora and the Rangiroa Islands when a crew member tested positive. The liner immediately returned to the home port in Papeete, Tahiti.
All Paul Gauguin passengers were told to stay in their cabins. It is not yet known how many passengers are on board.
According to worldometers, the number of people infected with Covid-19 in the world has exceeded 18 million. The first place in the number of people infected with coronavirus is occupied by the United States, where 4.8 million cases were recorded. In second place is Brazil with 2.7 million infected, in third - India with 1.8 million cases.
