What would you like the authorities to do?
They can't let them off the ship all the reports I've seen (From passengers) say that Carnival Corporation and the staff of The Carnival Princess have been bending over backwards for them.
@dick_turpin Get the people off the ship, clean and disinfect the whole thing thoroughly. Simple.
@jwildeboer WTF? So move them off a closed environment onto land where you've already highlighted that it is an airborne virus onto what, buses? thus spreading it around and then where? Maybe a hospital eating up even more resources and increasing the risk of escape. Sheesh Thank god you're not in charge of containment and public safety..
@dick_turpin When you move them from the ship to a place with filtered or low pressure air conditioning, you can definitely reduce the risk of airborne infections. That's a no-brainer and EXACTLY what is being done everywhere to try to contain infection.
@jwildeboer Na, you're wrong. The best solution is the current one. Keep them all on-board. Better still, sail out to sea and keep them there. As people are cleared after the 14 day incubation we could then move infected people out to the ship. 🕺 🕺 🕺 😷
@dick_turpin The 14 days restart with every new infection, though. God am I happy that YOU are not in charge of public safety ;)
@jwildeboer I know, coz I'd have you off to Steerage quicker than you can blink. 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
@jwildeboer Yes, but you're side-lining the critical point which is: “𝘐𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘱 𝘩𝘢𝘥 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘪𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘦𝘷𝘢𝘤𝘶𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘶𝘱𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘪𝘷𝘢𝘭 𝘪𝘯 𝘠𝘰𝘬𝘰𝘩𝘢𝘮𝘢, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘱𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘳𝘶𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘱𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘬 𝘻𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘥 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘯 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘰𝘧, 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘤𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘰 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘲𝘶𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵. " By the time you demanded they be let off it was too late. It also goes on to say, if they had not taken the measures a further 2,300 would have been infected. So it's meaningless.
@dick_turpin I am not sidelining anything AFAICS. Taking them off the ship even at the time I posted would have significantly reduced the number of infections. That’s what this note says.
@jwildeboer I read it differently. If anything, I focus more on the paragraph that states "Moving them off could have resulted in 2,300 cases." Seems to me, it's not actually definitive but one of those typical "if" types of observations. But hey, does it matter? Donald Trump says it's all a hoax so it must be. 🙂
