An Italian has died on a British-registered cruise ship owned by Norwegian Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, which docked in Cuba on Wednesday.
The MS Braemar ship has more than 1,000 people on board, including five confirmed cases of coronavirus infection and 50 isolated with flu-like symptoms.
The Cuban government agreed to allow the ship to dock at Mariel industrial port 45 kilometers west of the capital Havana for humanitarian reasons.
“We are very grateful for the Cuban government’s cooperation,” said British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab.
The passengers and crew will be transported to the UK by four aircraft and committed to self-isolation for 14 days.
