COVID-19 tests on TUI Cruises crew turn out negative
After 12 TUI Cruise crew members tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday, follow-up tests show that those same crew have now tested negative.
The cruise line reported that repeat checks by Greek health authorities turned out to be negative.
After docking in Piraeus, Greece, the Mein Shiff 6 conducted two additional PCR tests and all came back negative.
A further PCR test carried out by Greek health authorities “should confirm this again”, it said, calling the incident a possible false alarm.
The results of the PCR tests by Greek health authorities were expected later on Tuesday.
“None of the 12 crew members has any symptoms. The 12 crew members as well as 24 crew members of contact group 1 were immediately isolated on board on Monday,” TUI said.
