The man had reportedly completed a 10-day COVID quarantine, and just a day after his release he had passed away. The deceased was an Indian national who had been working in the bar department.
The cause of the man's death is unknown.
The man was isolated in a windowless cabin on Deck 2 for 10 days. On Friday, he had been out from the quarantine, and Saturday morning Code Alpha (medical emergency) had been announced onboard and he had suddenly died.
