Cruise Ship Passengers In Sydney Harbour Cleared Of Coronavirus”

All passengers on board the Norwegian Jewel cruise ship have been declared in good health.

Australian health officials tested a passenger onboard a cruise ship docked in Sydney harbour for a "respiratory illness" on Friday (Feb 14), causing passengers to fret about the potential of another shipboard outbreak of the coronavirus.

The cruise ship arrived in Sydney from Auckland on Friday morning, docking at the worldwide passenger terminal at Circular Quay.

NSW Health on Friday said one person from the Norwegian Jewel - who was tested purely as a precautionary measure - had been cleared of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Reports suggesting a coronavirus scare were false and inflammatory, the company said. "There is absolutely no truth to this", a spokesperson for Norwegian Cruise Line, told SBS News.
