Comedian Aboard Coronavirus Cruise Ship Fired After Ditching Quarantine And Returning to US

Frank King, a comedian who was working aboard the Holland America cruise ship that was quarantined after a former passenger tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus, says that he was fired by the cruise line after sneaking out of quarantine and returning home to Oregon.

KOMO News reported that King was contracted to perform on the M/S Westerdam for a two-week cruise around Asia. The vessel left port in Hong Kong on February 1 with Shanghai as its next destination, but it was not allowed to dock due to concerns over the coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19.
