Royal Caribbean has issued a warning to passengers aboard the 4,200 passenger ship Odyssey of the Seas as a precaution against the spread of a highly contagious virus.
Royal Caribbean Cruises is delaying the return of its newest cruise ship, Odyssey of the Seas, due to a recent outbreak of the norovirus, which is also known as the “flesh-eating virus”. Norovirus is a highly contagious virus that can cause diarrhea and vomiting. The virus can be spread through contaminated food and water, as well as person-to-person contact.
Royal Caribbean postpones return of Odyssey of the Seas due to outbreak of covirus among crew
Gary Leff 16. June 2021 I don’t think most people who have been vaccinated with any of the mRNA vaccines commonly used in the US need to be afraid of Covid-19, and they don’t have to worry too much about contracting the virus on a cruise ship. That said, I don’t think it’s a good idea to go on a cruise right now, even if you’re vaccinated. This is because other people may contract the virus and you may need to be quarantined. Or worse, your ship can’t dock. I would like more assurance that the cruise will be completed according to the published itinerary before recommending a return trip. Royal Caribbean has delayed the return of its ship Odyssey of the Seas due to an outbreak of Covid-19 among the crew. The date of July 3 has been moved to July 31. July postponed.
- 1,400 crew on the 4th. June vaccinated
- On the 10th. In June, eight crew members tested positive. They suffer from mild or asymptomatic cases.
- All crew members of the ship must be quarantined for 14 days.
Appropriation : Royal Caribbean What strikes me is that when you say everything about the 4. June, it is likely that they received the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson, which is a one-time dose. It’s logistically easier than bringing everyone back within three (Pfizer) or four (Moderna) weeks, and in fact, if the Moderna injection had been used, the team would have been on the 3rd back. Juli won’t be able to leave. While the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is good – it works better than I had hoped for a year ago in terms of efficacy – the actual data from Pfizer and also Moderna demonstrate the efficacy of mRNA vaccines against the virus and its variants, especially against asymptomatic cases. Since the cruise industry has been hit by the pandemic and its reputation is on the line, I would expect it to take precautions such as. B. giving all passengers the most protective vaccine possible – both to prevent guests from becoming infected and to avoid the public relations nightmare of a Covid epidemic that would bring cruise ships back to a halt. However, in this case the positive cases did not appear until several days after the first vaccination, and in some cases the infections may have occurred before vaccination, so the choice of vaccine would not have prevented this delay (since the crew was not vaccinated until June). However, I think they want as much protection as possible in the future. (HT: Cheryl)
