No cruise boats sailing?

Post by crewmeal »

I've just heard from a reliable source who works on a boat that all cruises have been put on hold for now due lack or tourists and customers. Any truth in it?

It makes perfect sense - for the health and welfare of any tourists that may still be there and for the crews.

Your 'reliable source obviously has noticed the lack of tourists, the lack of planes but, has probably not noticed
this tiny thing called coroana virus 19, (covid19) One wonders what all the 1-18 was all about ?

Ps: There's nothing quite like a 'reliable egyptian source ? 'it's totally paradoxical or diametrically opposed.

I believe the 19 is relevant to the date. 2019 is the year that this virus was first discovered.

You shouldn’t believe everything you hear on’t telly :lol:

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.

https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus

At the end of December 2019, Chinese public health authorities reported several cases of acute respiratory syndrome in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China. Chinese scientists soon identified a novel coronavirus as the main causative agent. The disease is now referred to as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and the causative virus is called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is a new strain of coronavirus that has not been previously identified in humans.

Thank you newcastle. I thought I'd read it somewhere, I just couldn't remember where. When who2 mentioned it, I didn't time to search and check.
