  1. I say test everyone on that ship there is no harm being overly cautious but if you are not well those deaths and illnesses are our countries fault.

  2. These cruises should be canceled! What’s insurance for! Seriously what a corrupt health hazard! I’m calling my senator

  3. Lol they still want to go on a cruise???? Ignorant people !!!! A cruise during the worst flu season in a long time and the coronavirus spreading like a wildfire doesn’t sound like a good idea ! Cruise companies should be shutdown until all this is over !

  4. Lock down all cruise ships and refund the peoples fares . Screen all crews on maritime vessels from everywhere , check all containers and vessels for virus traces, lock down all docks and ports and screen everyone .

  5. Unfortunately, due to close proximity, communal dining, and confined spaces, cruse ships are a known breeding ground for infectious diseases. 🛳️🦠😷 Cruse Ship Outbreaks: Legionnaires disease, measles, norovirus, ebola and now Coronavirus.

  6. Ok, what about the guy (crewmember) who was taken off the ship in a body bag convieniently after all the news crews had left ? Also it can take up to 21 days for the virus to incubate in a person before any symptoms show. 98% of the passengers on the ship were released with zero testing done !
    They are now wandering our streets.
