Ventura cancels tomorrow’s visit
JM have just announced on their website that the cruise ship ‘Ventura’ has cancelled its stopover in Madeira, scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, due to an outbreak of COVID-19 on board, and is now held up in the Canary Islands, according to the newspaper.
The ship was scheduled to arrive in Funchal at 8:00 am tomorrow, leaving at 5:00 pm.
At the same time, 12 passengers from one of the ships that docked yesterday in the port of Funchal were left on the island after testing positive for COVID-19. Passengers were taken to a hotel unit that has an arrangement with the Institute of Health Administration in Madeira, IASAÚDE.
Another outbreak occurred on another ship, where the 35 positive cases detected on board refused to stay in the Region, opting to comply with confinement on the ship itself, which continued on its journey.
