Cruise ship rejected by five countries over coronavirus fears docks in Cambodia (video)

Passengers aboard the MS Westerdam cruise ship, which was turned away by five countries over coronavirus fears, were allowed to disembark in Cambodia on Friday.

After tests, no one onboard was found to be carrying the Covid-19 virus, and the Cambodian prime minister, Hun Sen, personally greeted the passengers with handshakes and floral bouquets as they stepped off the ship on to a waiting bus.
