Cambodia to take cruise ship rejected by five countries over coronavirus fears

Passengers stranded at sea for nearly two weeks are finally due back on dry land after Cambodia agreed to rescue a cruise ship at the centre of a coronavirus scare.

The MS Westerdam was turned away by five countries over fears someone on board may have the deadly airborne disease.

Crew members said no one on board was sick, but that didn’t stop Thailand, Guam, Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines turning the vessel away.

Fears were mounting over food running out for the 1,455 passengers and 802 members of staff, until Cambodia stepped in to save the day.

The Holland America Line run ship is now set to dock in the port of Sihanoukville on tomorrow before a brief health inspection of everyone on board.
