07 September 2020Cruise Illness / Virus Outbreaks
(Coronavirus) On September 7, 2020, a passenger exhibited flu-like symptoms when the CroisiEurope-owned cruise ship was preparing to disembark its passengers at Cais da Lixa (Portugal's Aveiro District). Then the local health authorities tested all the 67 tourists (30 from France, 35 from Belgium, 2 from Switzerland) and the 20 crew onboard.
A total of 7 tests returned positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - 2 passengers plus 5 crew. Both infected tourists (French couple) were hospitalized ashore. The wife was first checked into a hotel and asymptomatic but when tested she was also diagnosed with COVID-19. The other 65 passengers were disembarked and bused/flown back to their countries. According to Portuguese media sources, this was done before the local authorities could intervene and test them. All cruisers were required to self-isolate (at home) for 14 days and conduct testing for the virus.
The boat's next Douro River cruise (7-day roundtrip) was scheduled for September 14.
