Nine passengers still waiting for disembarkation
The 'Celebrity Eclipse' which has docked in San Diego on March 30 has disembarked more than 2,300 passengers. Nine passengers were still on board waiting for travel arrangements home while one former passenger has died of COVID-19 and several crew members with positive test results were quarantined on board the ship. The ship left from Argentina on March 1 for a two-week voyage scheduled to end in San Antonio, Chile. But when the ship arrived on March 15, the nation had shut its borders, forcing the vessel to head to San Diego instead.
Passenger of Celebrity Eclipse died of COVID 19
The 'Celebrity Eclipse' remained docked in San Diego, while crew members have tested positive for COVID-19 and were being kept on the ship. On April 10 an ambulance was called to the ship for a medical emergency. Meantime, positive cases of COVID-19 continued to show up from the passenger list. 2.000 passengers were allowed to disembark the ship March 30. Authorities said everyone onboard the ship was healthy. However, one man, who was told he had the flu by medical staff on board, passed away four days after he got home. Autopsy reports show he was positive for Covid 19. His wife has also tested positive.
Passengers waiting for disembarkation
The 'Celebrity Eclipse' had been rejected in Chile and had to sail 10 more days to San Diego, where only North American and European citizens could leave. 600 passengers remain and 1,000 crew members were remaining on board, Argentines, Bolivians, Uruguayans, Mexicans, Brazilians, Peruvians and Cubans. The plan a few days ago was for all passengers without permission to enter the United States and the crew to get off the ship in the port of Acapulco, Mexico on April 4.Upload News
