They are testing the vaccine.

Actually, my answer was too brief. The research group from Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute are working on the vaccine and the research group from the University of Nebraska is working with Remdesivir as a treatment for patients with Covid-19 and pneumonia.

For more info see the "Time" article that was linked -

Again I will ask this question. How often are air filter change on a cruise ship?
I understand fresh air is pump in and circulated from the outside with fresh air daily inside a ship. But all cruise ships changing their air filters regularly?

I inspect and change my air filters at home every thirty (30) days because I have sinus problems.

Is it just me who feels that everyone is going nuts ever a nothing burger? Don't the prevention measures all over the world cause more pain than the actual disease? Are we sure people actually died from Corona virus rather than from other pre-existing conditions? I personally find this whole thing very suspicious.
As the saying goes, "if only we knew then what we knew then."

This thread went quiet after the cruise ship passengers finally got off the ships and home.
Did you know even now many thousands of crew members remain stranded at sea? (Hard to be more specific since the CDC only concerns itself with ships entering U.S. waters.)

The last figure were over 34,000 crew members still stranded. There are three (3) Norwegian Cruise ships docked at the Portsmouth Marine Terminal, Portsmouth, VA.
These crews members cannot leave those cruise ships for any reason.

Then Norwegian Cruise Lines and the country under which the ships are registered should be held accountable.

What exactly do you expect the cruise lines to do? These are foreign nationals, the countries they are docked at will not let them off. Is each cruise lines just suppose to drop them off at their home country while on a round the world trip.

Better solution is to let them off the ships, why don't we have an answer to that. That is not under the cruise lines control. So who controls that.

This IS under the cruise lines control because if these ships were registered in the United States, the workers would have the legal protection they currently lack. When companies choose to register their ships in the country which allows them to exploit workers in this manner, the companies deserve every bit of scorn coming their way.

I guess you have never sailed on Pride of America. This is the American Flagged NCL ship. Go read some reviews. Between costs and service, the cruise lines would all fail. This is the same as the Made in USA manta, except people want to shop it at Walmart pricing.

Why is it that the countries NOT letting people off a ship have anything to do with the country that ship if flagged under. Most of those people are not from that country either.

The three NCL ships in port only contained a small numbers crew members to maintain the ships. You need to ask that question to NCL, the Coast Guard, and Immigration.?
