Corona Cruise ship Nightmares are happening Now in 2020 say’s TotseNewsworthy.
You have undoubtedly heard at least something about the Coronavirus. Whether it’s from the news, your friends, or your family, it’s essential to take all the information you hear with a pinch of salt. There are a lot of swirling rumors, some real, many false. What we do know for sure is that world leaders are beginning to take severe precautions. Precautions like canceling school or telling people to work from home. Some organizations such a the NBA has even warned teams that they may finish the season without fans in attendance.

Holidaymakers have also been forcibly quarantined on their cruise ships. This may sound like a pretty sweet deal. Once you look into it a little closer, you will see why it’s isn’t. This article will help you do just that.
What precisely is the Coronavirus?
The Coronavirus is, simply put, a very severe and very infectious flu. All cases of flu spread quickly, all cases of flu can be deadly; this one just happens to be a little worse. Everyone is “at-risk.” Just as you are always at risk of catching the regular flu, some people are just more likely to suffer the most severe consequences of finding it. If you are much older (70+), then you may be more susceptible to the worst this virus has to offer. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry, just that you shouldn’t start making rash decisions. Try not to get too caught up in the panic of buying supplies like toilet paper and canned foods. Only making an effort to wash your hands, eat a lot of fruit, and drink a lot of water should be more than enough.
Why are governments forcibly quarantining people?
When an epidemic starts (which in North America this certainly isn’t), steps need to be taken. There is a lot of evidence suggesting that proactive decisions are far more successful at saving lives than reactive. It’s better to close a school now before any of the children are sick, then it would be to close it after a child starts presenting symptoms. Even if you ignore the moral reasons for trying to protect people, it makes sense from an economic standpoint to be as cautious as possible. If you look at China, where this virus is doing the most damage, you can see several examples of just strongly it can affect the economy. China is struggling to export its goods, keep its factories runnings, and is even struggling to get a handle on the virus at all. They ignored it for too long, so long that entire cities had to be quarantined. It is far easier to detain a cruise ship than have it entire a city.
What’s happening to the people who are quarantined on their cruise?
Being stuck on a cruise ship for free might sound great. I can assure you that it is quite the opposite. People are stuck in a cramped place, with very little to do, surrounded by infected people (in some cases). If this still somehow sounds appealing to you, consider this; they have no idea how long they are going to be stuck there. They are away from their families, away from their friends, with a minimal connection to the outside world. They aren’t cruising around the Caribbean either; they are stuck at port. There isn’t even anything nice to look at.
One of the biggest problems people are facing is getting adequate medical care. Some of the cruise ships that have been in quarantine for weeks have already started to see high death counts. Doctors and nurses are not going to feel compelled to spend very much time on the ship. Depending on where you are in the world, you may not receive medical care at all. Everyone on the ship will just be left to fend for themselves as the virus runs its course.
Can I still book a cruise?
If you want to book a cruise, now might be the time. You are likely to find some pretty great deals; you may even find a cruise ship willing to pay YOU to come aboard. Not quite, but you get the idea. Booking a cruise any time soon could be very risky for two reasons. There is a high chance of it being canceled, and you are not getting your money back. Secondly, if you do manage to go on your cruise, do you want to run the risk of getting quarantined yourself? The answer is probably not. Or you too might join the thousands of people who are confined to TINY cabins on their cruise ship with nothing to do all day. Nothing to do but wait until they get sick, or hopefully don’t.
