  2. The woman who died was in her 70s and was transported directly to hospital from the Ruby Princess which docked in Sydney on March 19. She passed away in RPA Hospital on Tuesday morning.

    Knowing this – how can they possibly continue to maintain that they didn’t know people on the ship were potentially infected???

  3. It’s actually not that shocking when you’ve witnessed how this PM blundered everything else.

  4. Princess Cruises again? What is it with that line specifically and COVID-19?

  5. NSW Health says 133 people who were on board the Ruby Princess have now tested positive for COVID-19.

    Of those, 107 are in NSW and 26 are interstate.

    “It should be noted, no cases of COVID-19 had been identified by doctors on board before docking,” NSW Health said.

    “Five people who had displayed influenza-like illness were tested in Wellington, New Zealand on March 14, and all were negative for COVID-19.”

    There are currently 12 coronavirus cases in intensive care units, eight of whom require ventilators.

    Also detailed in the new cases today are a large number of people who were allowed to disembark from other cruise ships.

    There are 13 cases in NSW linked to the Ovation of the Seas which docked in Sydney on March 18, and seven cases who were on board the cruise Voyager of the Seas which disembarked on March 18.

    Other cases include two teachers at Normanhurst West Public School in Thornleigh, who were confirmed on March 21 and March 23.

    Close contacts at the school have been identified and are being contacted placed in self-isolation. The school will remain closed today.

    There have also been three more positive cases at the hard-hit Dorothy Henderson Lodge, bringing to a total of 11 residents and five staff testing positive for COVID-19.

    Regarding the University of Sydney rugby match on March 14, another person has tested positive. They live in the ACT, where authorities are following up.

  6. I want to ask why these retards are still going on cruises, but I already know the answer.

    They’re retarded.

  7. This cruise left on march 8

    These CEOs need to be found guilty of manslaughter and put behind bars for life.

    All of them. Every company. All C level execs.

  8. “Five people who had displayed influenza-like illness were tested in Wellington, New Zealand on March 14, and all were negative for COVID-19.”

    such a good quote..it highlights the fact they know the some tests are misleading/incorecct..they have tested people multiple times for the virus and have it come up negative, then give them one more test and suddenly they come up positive…everyone with a cold should be self isolating at this point, regardless if it comes up positive or not..since they know you can have the virus without coming up positive(on certain tests)..

  9. 23,March. Corona(Covid-19) Statistics in US&World, update in every hour

  10. whens the next cruise ship launch? i hear its a good time.

  11. They all spent a day wandering around Wellington too. I can’t find the article but I am sure I read that they knew they had people sick with respiratory issues on board at the time.

  12. This whole thing is starting to feel like a massive IQ test.

  13. Honestly no sympathy for these fucking retards getting on these cruise ships.

    Diamond Princess was 2 months ago.

    Smarten the fuck up.

  14. LUXURY IS DEAD. THE SHIT YOU ARE PROGRAMMED TO THINK YOU NEED IS NOT IMPORTANT. GO INSIDE. STAY THERE. IT DOESNT MATTER IF IT SUCKS. DYING SUCKS.

    YOUR GOVERNMENTS HAVE FAILED YOU.

    ACCEPT IT AND HANDLE IT YOURSELF

  15. This is great advertising. I know now I’m never going on a cruise. They just killed any business they had for the future.

  16. Hopefully covid spells an end to cruising. I can’t believe it was even still legal to go cruising on March 8. How thick does someone have to be?

  17. Did any of the doctors onboard have tests to actually diagnose passengers with?
