Two False Positives & Two Cruise Lines Resuming Operations - River Cruise Advisor
Last week we reported that four cruise lines had COVID-19 outbreaks on board. What we now know is that at least two of the cruise lines did not have COVID-19 outbreaks on board. Seadream and UnCruise both had passengers that tested positive for COVID-19, but after being retested, the tests for both passengers came back negative. Experts suspect that in these types of cases, people may test positive initially but in follow-up tests, they may not have enough virus in their respiratory secretions to trigger a positive test.
This is, of course, great news for the cruise industry as it seems that only two cruise lines have had COVID-19 outbreaks since sailings have resumed.
