Holland America Westerdam cruise passenger tests positive

An 83-year-old American woman who disembarked from Holland America’s MS Westerdam in Cambodia has tested positive for coronavirus in Malaysia, according to the Malaysian Ministry of Health, reports Bloomberg and Reuters

The Westerdam departed Hong Kong on Feb. 1 and was scheduled to disembark in Shanghai on Saturday before coronavirus gripped mainland China and forced itinerary changes. The ship was turned away from multiple countries, despite the cruise line reiterating there were no cases of coronavirus aboard. 

After days in limbo, the ship’s journey came to a close when passengers began to disembark early Friday in the port of Sihanoukville, Cambodia. 

But on Saturday, Bloomberg reported the Malaysian Ministry of Health said that a passenger tested positive for coronavirus after arriving on a flight to Kuala Lumpur International Airport and was sent to a hospital. The woman’s husband tested negative, according to Bloomberg and Reuters.
