Vranje man takes a picture with a Corona beer on a cruise ship quarantined due to coronavirus
There is no panic and there is a sufficient amount of masks, says our interlocutor from Vranje
Miniature rooms the size of one cargo elevator, with a small sink and a cramped TV shelf, a hospital-like bed and a curtain as a partition - this is what one of the Diamond Princess cruise ship cabins looks like, each one actually being a mini-quarantine which guests cannot leave. And so it will be for at least 14 days. And another 14 if, in the meantime, one of the 3,700 passengers gets sick.
They are thus trapped in their cabins on a luxury ship, in fear and uncertainty, as the situation can theoretically take months. They cannot use restaurants or bars, smoking and entertainment rooms, they are virtually unable to enjoy any of the amenities that caused them to come on board in the first place. Instead, they are limited to a few square meters. The quarantine has already been extended once and any new patient would extend it for another 14 days.
Pictures of the interior of one of the cabins were given to the Telegraf by the portal dn017, and the Vranje man, who photographed everything, is one of the 12 other Serbs working on the ship, describing what the quarantine ship, now in Japan, looks like.
"I must say we are not locked up, we have just been asked not to leave the ship. The doctors came and explained the rules to prevent the spread of the infection. Passengers are not allowed to leave the cabins. We the crew work normally, but with masks and gloves, and food and drinks are delivered around the rooms - said B.A. (25) from Vranje, with whom portal dn017 is in touch.
Other Serbian passengers from this cruise ship made contact as well, and as they say, their dream vacation turned into a nightmare.
However, there is no panic, and there are enough masks, says our interlocutor from Vranje. What worries the passengers the most is the uncertainty of when they will be able to leave their cabins.
