Crew on cruise ship docked in Cambodia test negative for virus

The operator of a cruise ship now docked in Cambodia after being turned away by four Asian countries over virus fears said Thursday that all 747 crew members on board the Westerdam have tested negative for the novel coronavirus.

In an blog post, U.S.-based Holland America Line said the Cambodian Ministry of Health issued a statement confirming the negative test results.

The cruise ship, which docked in Sihanoukville on Feb. 13, will remain at the port “for a few more days until its future itinerary is finalized,” the post said. The next scheduled cruise on Feb. 29 was previously cancelled.
