COVID-19 pandemic[edit]

On 2020.04.29, A Tribuna [pt] reported that a 32-year-old Indian crew member of MSC Musica had tested positive for COVID-19.[2] The crew member was initially admitted to hospital for emergency care due to anemia and had tested negative for the virus upon admission.[2] However, when the crew member was scheduled for discharge, another test was performed, which returned positive.[2] It is unclear if the virus was contracted aboard the ship or after disembarkation, but MSC Musica, which had been moored at the Port of Santos, was placed under quarantine as a preventative measure, with the standard 14 days of quarantine beginning on the day the crew member had disembarked.[2]
