The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has flagged 89 cruise ships with COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, according to Bloomberg.
Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal said cruise ship operators are “repeating recent history as petri dishes of Covid-19 infection.”
“Time for CDC & cruise lines to protect consumers & again pause—docking their ships,” Blumenthal tweeted.
The CDC is investigating 86 cruise ships for COVID outbreaks. Of that, 32 are Carnival, 25 Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, and 15 Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. The CDC’s website said four Walt Disney Co.’s Disney Cruise Line are now under watch.
