Carnival Cruise Ships and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have confirmed that the coronavirus has infected more than half of the world’s cruise ships and that there is a higher likelihood that cruise ship passengers will contract the coronovirus, according to a report in the New York Times.
In an advisory sent to the industry on Wednesday, the CDC said that the virus has infected approximately 1,100 people on more than 400 ships.
The virus has spread across the ocean to many cruise ships, including the Carnival Cruise Lines cruise line, which runs the Miami, New Orleans, and Grand Bahama resorts.
The cruise line said in a statement that its first port of call was in New Orleans on Thursday to quarantine passengers and crew, while the second port was in Miami on Thursday and the third in Panama City, Florida, on Friday.
The company said that it will provide “more information on our cruise ship quarantine efforts as we are made aware.”
Carnival’s executive vice president of operations and guest services, Robert DeAngelis, told reporters that there are no direct signs of illness among its passengers and that the company is working closely with state and federal authorities.
“We’re working closely in the U.S. and worldwide to isolate and quarantine people and ensure our guests are safe,” he said.
The disease has killed more than 30,000 people in the Americas and Europe since it first emerged in December.
The Centers for Diseases Control and Public Health released a statement on Wednesday saying that the CDC was continuing to investigate the case.
“Carnival continues to work closely with our partner and partner agencies and our partners in Europe to determine if the virus is spreading to other cruise ships,” the statement said.
“The CDC is working with our partners across the globe to determine the extent and cause of the outbreak.
Carnival is currently working closely to isolate the cruise ship and crew.
We’re also coordinating with federal authorities in Florida to determine whether this outbreak is spreading.”
The cruise ship industry has been experiencing a resurgence of coronaviruses and other infections that have taken the lives of hundreds of people worldwide.
The latest outbreak, however, is the first to hit a cruise ship.
“These are the first cases of coronivirus in a cruise-ship ship,” CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden told reporters Wednesday.
“This is an emerging pandemic, and it’s going to be a long, long time before we’re going to see a significant increase in the number of people infected in this fashion.”
The virus is spread through the bite of infected animals and through the use of aerosolized equipment, including aerosols and gloves.
The new cases were reported Wednesday morning on the Carnival Grand Bahamas cruise ship that was sailing to and from Miami, according the Miami Herald.
The ship was scheduled to depart from Miami at 2 p.m.
ET on Wednesday.
The Coast Guard said it was working with cruise line officials to isolate passengers and to quarantine people.
“There’s not an immediate threat to any other vessels,” Coast Guard Capt. Chris Gullanes said.
A cruise ship has been a focus of public health concerns for decades, with more than 100 deaths linked to the disease since it was first identified in the Caribbean in 1976.
But the virus quickly became a global issue after the discovery of the virus in 2010.
That year, more than 5,400 people died in the United States from the coroniviral virus, and nearly a million people were infected worldwide, according a report published last month by the U,S.
Centers for Prevention and Control.
A report released in December from the U.,S.
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said that coronaviral cases have fallen significantly in the last five years.
In the first half of 2018, the U of T study said, there were 1,200 new coronavIRVs infections.
But as of March 1, the new coronovIRVs were up nearly 40% compared to the same time last year.
This past January, the Centers For Disease Control reported an additional 1,907 new coronivIRVs cases.
The study said the decline is likely to be partly due to increased use of antiviral medications and the coronvirus vaccine.
The U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) reported on Wednesday that it had been notified of a suspected case of coronoviral infection in a passenger on a Carnival ship that arrived in the Netherlands on Wednesday evening.
A spokeswoman said the ship had been inspected by the Netherlands Department of Safety and Coastguard.
The case was identified as a woman aged 50 years, who was transferred to a hospital in Rotterdam, the spokeswoman said.
