COVID-19 : Malaysia Temporarily Bans Cruise Ships!
The Director General of Health, Malaysia Ministry of Health, Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, just announced that with immediate effect, the Ministry of Health has decided not to allow cruise ships to dock at Malaysian ports with immediate effect, until the COVID-19 situation in Malaysia improves.
Here is his full statement :
In view of the recent resurgence of Covid19 cases in Malaysia and around the world, various measures are being taken by Malaysian authorities to contain local transmission and to safeguard public health.
The entry and transit of cruise vessels, passengers and crew members require considerable medical resources to be made available at ports for screening and treatment purposes.
During this difficult period, it is important that more medical resources are concentrated at hospitals to attend to medical emergencies and undertake preventive measures.
As such the Ministry of Health in consultation with other government ministries and agencies has taken a decision not to permit the entry of cruise vessels to Malaysian ports including Port Klang with immediate effect until the overall situation improves and the spread of the virus is contained.
We acknowledge that the cruise industry is an important component of Malaysia’s tourism industry and has contributed significantly to the Malaysian economy.
We are hopeful that this is a temporary measure and are confident that the concerted efforts of all parties will assist in resolving the issue at hand soonest possible.
This is an apt move, as Malaysia records almost 100 cases of COVID-19, including six new cases today.
