Three crew on the Costa Cruises ships Costa Favolosa and Costa Deliziosa have tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19). Both liners are moored at homeport Civitavecchia-Rome, Italy with no passengers onboard but a few hundreds of people who make up their respective crews.

At first, there were 2 suspected cases (both Filipino) - one onboard for months (on Favolosa) and the other just arrived in Italy and is already in isolation (on Deliziosa). AIDA clarified that there were 3 positive cases (2 on Favolosa, 1 on Deliziosa) that had been identified due to the constant application of the health protocols for boarding and use onboard.
