How can a cruise line be held culpable for a virus that exists in nature and is transported aboard their ships by someone infected with the virus? Should the cruise lines require a fecal sample from each passenger 72 hours prior to embarkation so they can determine if norovirus is present?
Was it transported by a passenger?
Is it novovirus?
If more screening ensured less sickness on board - I have no problem.
Why do some vessels have no reported data for 3 years?
