Maltese authorities are keeping the Maltese couple who were aboard the MS Westerdam in quarantine after a suspected case of coronavirus.
The cruiseliner, which was carrying two thousand passengers including the Maltese couple was allowed to enter a port in Cambodia.
Upon their arrival in Malta, the couple were examined and showed no sign of being infected with the virus. Nevertheless, the couple is being held in quarantine as a precautionary measure.
In a message posted on Facebook, the couple said that although this was not the holiday they had planned, it was still an experience they would remember forever. They thanked the support given by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, and in particular Ambassador John Aquilina.
