The coronavirus-affected Zaandam cruise ship docked in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on April 2 after being turned away from several American ports amid fears over the coronavirus outbreak on board.
Passengers were due to be screened and cleared for entry by US Customs and Border Protection officers, according to a post by the cruise ship’s parent company.
Holland America Line reported at least 90 passengers and 143 crew on the Zaandam had presented with influenza-like symptoms.
The ship had been left docked off Panama for several days as many South American ports denied the ship entry, according to reports. Credit: Jon G Becker via Storyful
