Cruise Ship Passenger Diagnosed With the Common Flu Not Coronavirus

On Thursday, 5,000 passengers aboard a Costa Cruises’ ship were not allowed to disembark the vessel as an abundance of caution after one of the passengers reported to have flu like symptoms while visiting a port in Italy.

The quarantine was lifted the following day after the passenger was taken to a local hospital.

Carnival Corporation, the parent company of Costa Cruises, sent out a press release stating that the passenger was diagnosed with the common flu, not coronavirus.
