Cruise ships told to leave Australian waters to avoid repeat coronavirus 'fiasco'

Of these 26 cases, four are passengers from cruise ships including the Ruby Princess, Sun Princess and Voyager of the Seas.

Tara C. Smith, an infectious disease epidemiologist at Kent State University, also pointed out that the researchers didn't say how many rooms they found the RNA in or how common it was. It had initially reported 25 people with flu-like symptoms.

According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is transmitted through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are spread when a person with the virus coughs, sneezes, or exhales.

More than 130 passengers from the ship, which berthed in Sydney last week, have since been confirmed as having COVID-19.

Because of this, another cruise line, the MSC Magnifica, has been refused entry to Perth ealier this week.

However, the fact it can persist for so much longer than we'd thought highlights the need to be especially vigilant about deeply cleaning homes and hospitals where anyone with suspected coronavirus has been present, and doing the same for any public-facing businesses like gyms, bars or restaurants when the time comes for them to reopen.

Between February 3 and March 13, about 200 virus cases in the United States were confirmed to be from cruise travelers of multiple voyages, including the Diamond Princess and Grand Princess.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the Ruby Princess situation was "terrible" and federal authorities were working with NSW on contact tracing. Only citizens and permanent residents and their families will be allowed to enter Australia.

The 66-year-old is in the high-risk category of those affected by COVID-19 and said it was concerning that he was about to get in the same elevators used by passengers.
