Westerdam Cruise Ship Denied Port Entry By Thailand

Cruise Ship Westerdam Denied Port Entry By Thailand


The Japanese government denied entry to the Westerdam cruise ship after a passenger was suspected of having the coronavirus. It has also been denied debarking in Manila and Guam.

Thailand is refusing to allow a cruise ship carrying 1,400 passengers to take port for fear of the novel coronavirus despite there being no known infections aboard, the health minister announced this morning.

Thailand’s health Minister has turned away the cruise ship Westerdam and prohibited it from docking in the Laem Chabang port. The Westerdam was turned away by Japan earlier last week.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul posted a short Facebook message saying he has directed authorities not to allow the Westerdam ship to dock in Thailand.

The message was posted after the operator of the vessel announced on Monday the ship would drop passengers off at the deep-sea port in Chon Buri on Thursday.
