Some 3,600 crew and passengers on World Dream were quarantined amid fears some of the staff could have contracted the coronavirus on a previous sailing. The World Dream cruise ship was put in quarantine on Wednesday, February 5, after it emerged that 3 passengers who had sailed on a previous cruise were later found to have contracted the deadly virus.
According to chief port health officer Leng Yiu-Hong, all crew members (around 1,800 in number) had tested negative for the virus, and everyone would be allowed to disembark with no need to self-quarantine after leaving.
Hong Kong's health minister said on Sunday that 468 people had been ordered to stay at home, in government-run centres or hotel rooms, one day after officials implemented a mandatory 2-week quarantine period for anyone arriving from mainland China.
