Dominican Republic turns lower back cruise ship
Meanwhile, the Dominican Republic refused to permit a cruise ship headed toward the island to dock at its port amid worries over the virus.

A joint statement through the Public Health Ministry and Port Authority stated the captain of the Braemar stated four Filipinos, two British residents and two US residents were underneath scientific remark after exhibiting signs of the COVID-19 illness such as fever, coughing, or respiration difficulties.

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines stated in an emailed statement that it had suggested "a small number of influenza-like cases on board. Our clinical team has now advised that they are all feeling better. No friends or crew are, or have been, exhibiting symptoms that are regarded to be consistent with these of coronavirus."

Officials said the ship was once carrying 1,128 passengers and 384 crew members. The cruise line stated it used to be "awaiting advice on the subsequent steps" and "liaising with a wide variety of airlines to secure onward journey for guests."

"It is our opinion that this is an overreaction by using the Dominican Republic,'' Fred Olsen stated in a written statement.

The cruise line's website shows the ship had been due to pick up every other load of passengers and set off on a new cruise Thursday night.
The business enterprise said on Friday that "we are in discussion with the relevant authorities on nearby Caribbean islands, as well as a variety of airlines, to allow our visitors to disembark and impervious onward travel for them to return home."

The Dominican Republic's public fitness minister, Rafael Sanchez Cardenas, said the ship already had been barred via some other port however did now not specify which.

Meanwhile, passengers on any other vessel at the Mexican island of Cozumel confronted but any other day on board after their ship used to be turned away from ports in Grand Cayman and Jamaica.

The MSC Meraviglia docked at Cozumel on Thursday. Mexican President Lopez Obrador said passengers would be allowed to disembark.

Lopez Obrador said Mexico had to act with "humanity" after the ship was refused authorisation with the aid of the two different countries due to virus fears.

But Alejandra Aguirre, the fitness secretary of the coastal country of Quintana Roo, stated two human beings had been detected with acute respiratory infections now not believed to be the new coronavirus and that different passengers wouldn't be allowed off until tests on those two came back later Thursday.

The two were identified as a 27-year-old male crew member from the Philippines and a 30-year-old girl passenger from France.

MSC said in a statement that the two passengers had been now symptom-free and the ship would continue to be in Cozumel. Assuming clearance to disembark is given, passengers would be free to tour Cozumel through the end of Friday.

The cruise line had expressed frustration with the rejections, which came after it mentioned the crew member used to be in poor health with common seasonal flu.

"The ship is being allowed to dock and the passengers, these who are aboard the cruise ship, can disembark," Lopez Obrador said, adding that health inspections will be carried out.

"We can't act with discrimination," he said. "Imagine if a ship arrived and it wasn't even allowed to dock, and they were told, 'Keep going on your way, see the place you can dock.' That is inhuman."

"We cannot shut our ports, nor can we close our airports," he added.
