Wednesday, October 22, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Last week the Ministries of Immigration and Health put together several safety precautions for visiting cruise ships in the wake of the near-scare over a lab technician thought to be carrying the Ebola virus aboard the Carnival Magic cruise ship.
Local authorities refused the U.S. permission to evacuate the passenger, who turned out to be negative for the virus.
But no chances will be taken, even if it offends Carnival Cruise Lines, which has complained of the tediousness of the new protocols.
Tourism Minister Manuel Heredia expects that the two sides will meet by the end of today and says that the Government only intended to protect the country from the fear of Ebola.
The Minister said there is nothing to fear from Carnival’s threats, and commended his boss Prime Minister Dean Barrow for making the right call initially to refuse entry.
