During the past few weeks, there has been a lot of attention around the TUI Schiff 3 vessel. After a crew tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) on April 30, the entire ship (carrying a total of 2899 crew) was quarantined in Port Cuxhaven (Germany).

Via approval of the responsible authorities, the 8 infected crew were brought ashore to a quarantine station on Thursday, May 7. The first Coronavirus patient is still hospitalized in HELIOS Klinik Cuxhaven. TUI said that all nine patients are doing well and are symptom-free.
