Full recovery after cholera tests on the cruise ship “Norwegian Dawn”

Full recovery after cholera tests on the cruise ship “Norwegian Dawn”

Samples taken on Sunday from about 15 people on board the ship did not contain any signs of cholera. The vessel was temporarily denied berthing.

Full approval was given after passengers on the Norwegian Dawn cruise ship were suspected of being infected with cholera off the East African island of Mauritius. The Ministry of Health in the island state said on Monday afternoon that samples taken on Sunday from about 15 people on board the ship did not contain any signs of cholera.

Previously, after a meeting of authorities on Monday afternoon, it was said that the ship would be allowed to dock and the first passengers would be allowed to disembark on Tuesday morning at 6:00 a.m. local time.

This was preceded by an involuntary delay in the sea voyage from South Africa via Madagascar and Réunion to Mauritius. After a series of gastrointestinal diseases on board the ship “Norwegian Dawn”, the authorities in Mauritius refused to allow the ship to dock in the port of the capital, Port Louis, on Sunday. The French island of Reunion had previously rejected the ship. Southern Africa is currently experiencing one of the worst cholera outbreaks in years. (APA/DPA)
