Throw open the borders! Or not:
A passenger aboard a cruise ship docked in Sydney Harbour is being tested for possible coronavirus.
The Australian understands that NSW Health are assessing a Singaporean woman who fell ill with respiratory illness.
The cruise ship arrived in Sydney this morning having believed to be at other Australian ports after travelling from New Zealand.
If she is positive, let’s hope we do a better job than Japan where 218 out of 713 passengers are infected in a quarantined ship of the damned.
Even the bloke who was sent on board to test passengers now has it.
Update: Passengers have been allowed to leave the Sydney vessel. It is unclear if patient has COVID-19.
