邮轮公司无视疾控警告,照常营业致疫情扩散

Nicole Goodkind 2022年01月06日
美国疾控中心上周表示,目前正在对90多艘出现了疫情的船只进行调查。

美国疾病控制与预防中心向所有潜在的邮轮旅行者发出信息:不要乘坐。

该中心上周发布了新冠肺炎预警信息,称搭乘邮轮为高风险旅行活动,对于已完全接种疫苗的人也同样如此。该机构称:“新冠肺炎病毒极易在船上近距离接触的人群中传播,即使你已经完全接种了疫苗,也接种了加强针,在邮轮上感染新冠的几率也非常高。”

随着高传染性的奥密克戎变种继续在全国快速传播,美国疾控中心上周表示,目前正在对90多艘出现了疫情的船只进行调查。挪威邮轮公司(Norwegian Cruise Line)和皇家加勒比(Royal Caribbean)均报告本月船上出现了新冠肺炎阳性病例,并因此加强了船上的口罩防疫政策。嘉年华邮轮公司(Carnival Cruise Line)本月也恢复了佩戴口罩的政策。

但警告和高感染率并未阻止游客乘船环游世界。

“疾控中心还说,我们到哪里都应该戴上口罩,”嘉年华“展望号”(Vista)邮轮的乘客弗朗西娜·刘易斯向休斯敦新闻电台KHOU-11表示,“但你看有人戴吗?”

挪威邮轮公司称,与其他公共环境相比,本公司邮轮上的游客更不容易感染新冠。挪威和嘉年华表示,尽管疾控中心发出警告,他们仍将继续执行常规的行程和航线。迪士尼“奇迹号”(Wonder)和嘉年华“展望号”邮轮将于本月载着数千名乘客从加尔维斯顿启航。“我相信如果情况真的这么糟、这么恶劣的花,嘉年华不会让我们上船的。我是这么认为的。”刘易斯说道。

自疾控中心发布警告后,已有邮轮从新奥尔良和佛罗里达出发。“不管怎么样,我都还是会坐邮轮玩这一趟的。”乍得·斯托特向当地新闻台福克斯8频道(Fox 8)表示,他上周刚从新奥尔良的嘉年华“荣耀号”(Glory)下船,“该发生的总是要发生。我已经得过新冠了。我也打过疫苗了。”

挪威、皇家加勒比和嘉年华2020年都亏损了,2021年预计仍将继续亏损。在美国疾控中心上周发布邮轮乘坐指南后,他们的股价出现下跌。

代表行业利益的国际邮轮协会(Cruise Lines International Association)对疾控中心的声明表示不理解。

该协会称:“一直以来,邮轮上发现的病例都只占船上总人数的很小一部分,因此美国疾病控制与预防中心提高邮轮旅行风险等级的决定着实令人费解。”(财富中文网)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a message for potential cruise-goers: Don’t do it.

The agency issued a COVID-19 warning last week, calling cruising a high-risk travel activity, even among the fully vaccinated. “The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads easily between people in close quarters on board ships, and the chance of getting COVID-19 on cruise ships is very high, even if you are fully vaccinated and have received a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose,” an agency advisory read.

As the highly contagious Omicron variant continues its rapid spread across the country, the agency said last week that it’s currently investigating COVID breakouts on more than 90 ships. Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean reported positive COVID-19 cases on ships this month, and have strengthened their onboard mask policies as a result. Carnival Cruise Line also reinstated a mask policy this month.

But the warnings and high rates of infection aren’t stopping cruise-goers from getting on ships and sailing across the globe.

“CDC also says we should wear a mask everywhere we go,” Francena Lewis, who was aboard Carnival’s Vista cruise ship, told KHOU-11, a Houston news station. “But you see anybody doing that?”

Norwegian Cruise Line said it believed its guests were better protected from contracting COVID-19 than in any other general settings. Norwegian and Carnival have said they will continue on with their normal itineraries and schedules despite the CDC warning. Disney’s Wonder cruise ship and Carnival’s Vista are set to sail out of Galveston this month with thousands of passengers on board. “I believe that Carnival wouldn’t let us get on this cruise if it was that bad and that toxic. That’s my opinion on it,” said Lewis.

Cruises departed from New Orleans and Florida after the CDC warnings were issued. “I still would have gone on the cruise regardless,” Chad Stout, who disembarked from the Carnival Glory in New Orleans last week, told local news source Fox 8. “It is what it is. I’ve had COVID. I got the shot.”

Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival all lost money in 2020 and are expected to do so again in 2021. Their stock prices fell after the CDC released their cruise guidance last week.

The Cruise Lines International Association, a group that represents the interests of the industry, expressed confusion at the announcement.

“The decision by the CDC to raise the travel level for cruise is particularly perplexing considering that cases identified on cruise ships consistently make up a very slim minority of the total population on board,” it said.
