In the recent months, there has been a worldwide outbreak of a new strain of the Corona virus, commonly known as COVID-19. The virus began in China in December 2019, and has quickly spread throughout Asia, Europe and most recently, North America. The virus causes temperature, a dry cough, and can be fatal. There have been over One Hundred Thousand cases worldwide and over Three Thousand deaths as result of COVID-19. Those fatalities have largely been amongst the elderly population, and those with underlying medical complications.
Negligence on Behalf of Princess Cruise Lines
COVID-19 really gained the attention of the public when the Diamond Princess cruise ship, suffered an outbreak of the disease at the beginning of February 2020 in Yokohama, Japan. The outbreak began with ten cases, and rapidly multiplied to seven hundred cases, as a result of the flawed two week quarantine on the ship. The Center for Disease Control, (CDC) issued a statement on February 18, 2020, that “the rate of new reports of positives new on board, (Diamond Princess), especially among those without symptoms, highlights the high burden of infection on the ship and potential for ongoing risk.”
Many passengers died as a result of COVID-19.
It would only stand to reason, that having experienced such a traumatic outbreak on board one of its vessels less than a month prior to the current voyage on board the Grand Princess, that Princess Cruise Lines would have learned to take all necessary precautions to keep its passengers, crew and the general public safe. Unfortunately, the Princess Cruise Lines did no such thing, which is why 100s are now at actual risk of immediate physical injury proximately caused by the Princess Cruise Lines negligence.
