CREW MEMBER FOUND DEAD ON NJ-DOCKED CRUISE SHIP

CREW MEMBER FOUND DEAD ON NJ-DOCKED CRUISE SHIP
12 Comments

A crew member has been FOUND DEAD aboard the Royal Caribbean "Anthem of the Seas" cruise ship which docked in Bayonne, New jersey yesterday.  That vessel unloaded almost two dozen people suffering symptoms that COULD be coronavirus.

It is not known if the crew member was sick at all, or if he is like so many others (in China) who simply drop dead without warning.

It is not known if this is even related to coronavirus.

The man is described as in his 50s and a worker in the ship's engine room.

    Looks like Hal hasn't updated his website since yesterday. Is this normal? Or did he pack up and get out of Dodge???

    NYPost has a story :
    Stranded Royal Caribbean cruise passengers slam liner amid coronavirus scare: https://nypost.com/2020/02/08/stranded-royal-caribbean-cruise-passengers-slam-liner-amid-coronavirus-scare/

    ship docking Friday and four Chinese nationals being removed by paramedics, including one who fell ill with a fever on board and later tested positive for influenza. The four were taken to University Hospital in Newark, where they were tested for the novel coronavirus that has killed 725 people worldwide, most in China, where the group traveled from.

    An additional 23 passengers from China, who had been kept in isolation for much of the 12-day cruise, were taken straight to Newark Airport and sent home.

    No one aboard the 18-deck, 2,090-stateroom ship is known to have the coronavirus, but until the tests come back to confirm that, the ship is staying put.

    They haven't tested positive YET people are testing negative initially then a little later they test positive. They don't have enough of the RNA to be counted yet.

      Jim Hart, could you tell me more about that? Is it that the virus makes RNA and it's not extensive enough to show in blood?

        It IS RNA. Like a little bit of code designed to use your own cells against you. It is not alive. Per se which is why antibiotics don't work. When they test for this virus they are mostly looking for the bits of RNA. They are also trying to find antibodies that fight it, that your body makes. That is the little bit I know from listening to virologists talk about this.

    One would think this would be all over the news. Haven't seen one article anywhere on it and I have several news outlets I look at daily. Won't buy they are keeping it silent either. People here won't follow along. If anyone has some links to it, would be appreciated.

    Concerning the update, that guy is a demorat politician. Now when was the last time a demorat politician lied to you? In print, on television, in person, before a U S House of Representative investigative committee? Does "I never had sex with that women" come to mind or "you have to pass the bill to read what's in it." They perfect that talent every day.

    Should be quite the interesting fall and holiday season 2020. Not expecting much here until then, but time will tell.

    The neat 'o' part is they are loading it to ship back out tomorrow with nearly a full booking. Only a few cancellations.

      Oh wow. Shipping it back out with fresh passengers. There hasnt been enough time to deconamiate it. Plus the passengers are irresponsible for even getting on it.

      Recently, there's been a lot of speculation as to what race or demographic might be most vulnerable to the Coronavirus once it really begins to saturate the US. Based on what I've been seeing lately, the group at the highest risk, seems to be the overpopulated ranks of irredeemably stupid people in this country. If, what you just reported is true, it perfectly illustrates my supposition.

    Terrible news. But to get an idea of this novel virus, i suggest watching 'Contagion".

      Just watched it. It even starts in the same time frame, around Thanksgiving. A lot of similarities.

        If someone couldnt understand how it spreads by surface contact, they would after watching it. At the end it shows the chef wiping his infected hands from the pigs all over his apron. Just think the butcher knife was infected, the table, his hands, everything

    Go to www.hearthelordjesus.com and read the latest messages from Jesus that He just gave to Julie Whedbee and Krystal Beall about what is going on.... The Great Tribulation is upon us folks, it is time to repent or perish.

      Dude...you gotta stop promoting heresy. Christ Jesus. Period. Believe and repent. His Word was given once for all time- any additions and let that one be anathema! Get on the team.

        I have to respectfully disagree. Of course everything in the Bible is true, but not everything true is in the Bible. John said, if everything Jesus did was written down there wouldn’t be enough room in the world to contain all the books. Plus God always has, currently is and always will, talk with His prophets and doesn’t NOTHING without first reveling it to them. The tricky part is discerning what is actually from Him.

    Based on previously circulating stories about the possible race specificity of the Coronavirus, I'd really like to know whether recent victims outside of China are in fact, Chinese or not. However, given the toxic climate of political correctness prevalent today, race is apparently a taboo subject, so as not to trigger the insane left and their "racism" obsession.

      Yeah, I've really been wondering about that one too. Even the American that died in Wuhan, what was her ethnicity?

      Grim that is a reasonable thing to ask. I confess that I HATE the insane left and everything they're trying to do to our country. I don't give a damn about political correctness. I piss off liberals all the time. If they can't handle the truth that's their problem. I don't give a s**t about an opposing viewpoint.

      Me too. And if it’s true, I would expect the first major outbreaks to be in areas with large Asian populations, especially along the West Coast.
