  • Vietnam turns away cruise ship over Covid-19 fears say state media

The cruise ship arrived in Sydney today and Australian media reported that it was placed in lockdown while authorities tested a sick passenger for coronavirus.

The newspaper The Australian says the Norwegian Jewel is in lockdown while New South Wales Health tests a Singaporean passenger who fell ill with respiratory illness.

However in a statement to Yahoo News Australia, a Norwegian Cruise Line spokesperson denied any patients have displayed coronavirus symptoms. "One person has been tested for respiratory illness on board with results expected this afternoon". "The vessel remains in operation and all guests on board are in good health". "There is absolutely no truth to those stories".

"Testing was done as a precaution as there is no indication that the person is at particular risk of COVID-19, and at this point, there is no concern for other passengers or people in and around Circular Quay", they said. "As such, upon the ship's return to Sydney [today] a a thorough inspection and rigorous cleaning and disinfection of the ship and terminal were conducted".

It is understood the ship was docked in Sydney on Friday morning after travelling from New Zealand.

But they said no-one on board has any respiratory illness.

The cruise ship, Norwegian Jewel, departed from Auckland on February 4, then visited Tauranga, Gisborne, Wellington, Picton, Akaroa, and Dunedin, before arriving in Sydney on Friday. None of the passengers had been in China in the previous 14 days and there was no outbreak of any disease on board, officials added.

"There were three routine medical transfers, none related to respiratory illness".
