The U.S. State Department is urging people, especially those with underlying health conditions, to avoid going on cruise ships.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said there is an increased risk of infection of COVID-19 on cruises.
Many countries have implemented strict screening procedures to curb the spread of the virus. Some have denied port entry rights to ships and prevented passengers from disembarking. In other cases, authorities have allowed passengers on shore, but they are limited to quarantined areas.
