Cruise ships pose a huge threat
So we have at least six cruise ships sitting off the NSW coast, refusing to go home, even though Australia has refuelled/restocked them for the voyage and removed to ICU any sick crew/passengers.
Carnival is appealing to our government to reconsider and repatriate hundred of crew and passsengers but Australians elsewhere around the world are not being helped buy other less "soft touch" countries, are they?
Anyone else fed up with stupid travellers/cruisers who still went on holidays in the middle of a global pandemic? We had to cancel our holiday plans, at considerable expense, and now we have to risk all we have done here in Australia because of greedy cruise companies allowing cruises to continue when they should have been stopped a long time ago.
And now we have the whingers in the hotels, the people finally returning from overseas...one woman complained that the food she received was "carb overload".! Really, lady?
If these foreign crew and passengers are allowed off the ships ( not inccluding the severely ill, of course, they must be helped) we are really in trouble. We will not be able to cope with the surge in illness.
I await criticism from those of you who feel we should welcome every fool who enters our waters but I do not care. We are a soft touch.
