60 Indonesians quarantined aboard virus-stricken Costa Luminosa at Italian port

first_imgThe Indonesian Embassy in Rome has confirmed that at least 60 Indonesian crew members of the virus-hit Costa Luminosa cruise ship are now being quarantined aboard the vessel docked at Italy’s port of Savona.“Yes, they are still in Savona. The passengers and crew are not allowed to disembark yet as they must be quarantined and be observed for 14 days from their arrival on Saturday,” Indonesian Ambassador to Italy Esti Andayani told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.The Costa Luminosa, an Italian cruise ship, departed for Savona, Italy, from the French port of Marseille on Friday after 36 of its passengers had tested positive for COVID-19. The infected passengers were tested by the French health authorities when the ship made a stop in Marseille, Reuters reports. However, a Marseille area official told the news agency that he could not comment on how many of those infected had disembarked and how many were still on the ship.On Thursday and Friday, 639 of the Costa Luminosa’s 1,421 passengers disembarked in Marseille.The Indonesian Embassy in France said on Friday that the 60 Indonesian crew members were in a healthy condition and had been told by authorities to stay inside their rooms.The Costa Luminosa, operated by Italy’s Costa Cruises, a subsidiary of Carnival Corp, had left Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on March 5 on a cruise destined for Venice, Italy.But days later it had to disembark two passengers in Puerto Rico who were later diagnosed with the coronavirus. It also unloaded four sick passengers on the Spanish Canary island of Tenerife, Reuters reports.International cruises have proven to be fertile ground for the spread of COVID-19. Before the Costa Luminosa, other international cruise ships – with dozens of Indonesian crew members on board — had been banned from disembarking passengers in several countries including the Diamond Princess, World Dream, Westerdam and Grand Princess cruises.At least nine out of 78 Indonesian crew members aboard the Diamond Princess were infected, and all have now recovered.Topics :last_img read more

Van Gaal targets Schweinsteiger

first_img Press Association Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is interested in signing Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger this summer. The 30-year-old has won the Bundesliga eight times, lifted the Champions League with Bayern in 2013 and was part of Germany’s World Cup winning squad last summer. The midfielder has made over 300 appearances for the Bavarian club since he joined as a 14-year-old, but his contract expires next summer and talks have reached an impasse. Press Association Sport understands the midfielder is on Van Gaal’s transfer shortlist and the United boss is hoping to sign the player this summer. Van Gaal used his personal relationship with Memphis Depay to persuade him to sign for United and the 63-year-old hopes that will be the case with Schweinsteiger. Van Gaal coached the German for two years at Bayern. He converted the 30-year-old from a winger into the defensive midfield position where he plays now, and together the pair won the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal. Senior sources at United admit Schweinsteiger is more likely to remain at Bayern, but that has not stopped them privately expressing their interest in the Germany skipper. United, meanwhile, confirmed on Thursday that the second match of their pre-season tour of the United States against the San Jose Earthquakes will take place at 62,467-capacity California Memorial Stadium. United will take on the Major League Soccer side on July 21. Van Gaal’s team will kick off the tour against Mexican side Club America in Seattle. After playing the Earthquakes, they face Barcelona in Santa Clara and Paris St Germain in Chicago as part of the International Champions Cup, which they won last summer after beating Liverpool in the final in Miami. center_img Although he spent £150million on six new players last summer, Van Gaal has been assured that he will be given sizeable funds to improve the squad in the close season if he deems it necessary. With Michael Carrick turning 34 this summer, and the jury still out on Daley Blind, the United boss is concerned he does not have enough cover in front of the back four so he has made a dynamic midfielder his priority and Schweinsteiger certainly fits the bill. last_img read more

CARICOM Planning to Open Borders for Intra-regional Travel

first_imgGrenada’s borders as well many regional ports of entry and exit were closed in March as part of efforts to curb the spread of COVID19. This is according to Grenada’s cabinet minister with responsibility for CARICOM, Oliver Joseph. “We collectively agreed to start gradually relaxing the restrictions for travel, as the pandemic in the region has been largely contained. Governments, airlines, and hotels are now finalising the details of this phased re-opening. Assuming that the requisite protocols are in place, we expect to open our borders in the first week of June.” CMC ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada – Members states with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) plan on reopening borders to intra-regional travel in the first instance, hopefully by next month. “These protocols will be informed by a regional public health policy which the heads have agreed is necessary to guide the criteria for reopening. The health policy is being drafted and will be submitted to CARICOM Heads of Government for final approval” said a news release from the Government Information Service. “Borders were closed to prevent the spread of the virus and to save lives, and for now, we must maintain that status quo…I assure you, fellow Grenadians, we will not move unless we are satisfied that adequate health and safety guidelines are in place.”center_img Mitchell who also holds the portfolio of Minister for National Security assured Grenadians that the health and safety of citizens remain a primary concern. During the virtual meeting, the COTED approved a strategy for the re-opening of economies in the Caribbean Community. The Council is made up of Trade Ministers and officials agreed to a framework centered on the development and adherence to defined metrics related to the Covid-19 virus, which will guide in the reopening process. At the 10th Special Emergency Meeting of CARICOM Heads of Government last week, a sub-committee was established to engage stakeholders in the tourism industry to agree on appropriate protocols that will ensure the safety of workers and visitors alike, once borders are re-opened. “What we are discussing is to first allow regional travel, that is travel within the islands such as travel between Grenada and Trinidad or between Trinidad and Barbados, we are not looking at having international carriers come to the island yet,” said Joseph who last week chaired at the fiftieth meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED). Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Mitchell, in a national address on Sunday night, said that reopening of borders was a topic of discussion at recent meetings of Caribbean leaders at both the OECS and CARICOM levels and a regional approach is being considered.last_img read more
