Several Cruise Ships Are Left Stranded As Coronavirus Cases Spike

Several cruise ships are stranded at sea, some with confirmed coronavirus cases on board, as the epidemic spread around the globe.

Some ships have been denied port, leaving them to anchor off the coast of a country.

Other cruises have docked with quarantined passengers aboard.

Three cruise ships have confirmed cases of coronavirus on board: the MS Braemar, Silver Shadow and Silver Explorer.

Four passengers and one crew member aboard the MS Braemar tested positive for the virus, according to a statement from British company Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, which owns the Braemar.

A Canadian passenger tested positive for coronavirus Saturday on the Silver Shadow, which is docked off the port of Recife in Brazil, according to Brazil’s state news agency Agencia Brasil. Royal Caribbean confirmed the case on the Silver Shadow on Sunday.
