The Cordelia cruise ship en route to Goa, aboard which as many as 66 of the 2,000-odd passengers had tested positive for the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) yesterday, has now been sent back to Mumbai, reported the PTI news agency on Tuesday. Thereafter, as many as 66 passengers on board tested positive for the viral disease, according to Goa health minister Vishwajit Rane.
“Only six crew members out of the total 66 who had tested positive were disembarked in Goa,” he said.
“The coronavirus positive passengers would be isolated on the ship.”
The Goa administration is likely to impose a night curfew soon between 11pm and 6am, besides cancelling classes for students of classes VIII to XII.
