Over 100 of the people on board the two cruise ships headed to the east coast of Florida are suffering from influenza-type symptoms with no testing for COVID available on the ships.
Roger Frizzell, a spokesman for Carnival cruises said Thursday that 2 of their cruise ships are headed to Ft Lauderdale, Florida with over 1,200 crew members on board. The Costa Favolosa and Magica are intending to dock next week but do not have official clearance to enter the Port of Miami.
