Coronavirus outbreak for crew on cruise ship in Greece

Greek authorities say 12 crew members on a Maltese-flagged cruise ship carrying more than 1,500 people on a Greek islands tour have tested positive for coronavirus and have been isolated on board

Sample tests for coronavirus were carried out on 150 crewmembers and 12 were positive but asymptomatic, the ministry said. The passengers had undergone coronavirus tests before boarding.

Greece on Monday recorded 269 new confirmed infections, most of them in the greater Athens region, and four coronavirus-related deaths. That brings the total cases in the country of 10 million to about 17,700, and the overall death toll to 383.
