  • Cruise ship stricken with measles; Now quarantined


    Cruise ships are great places to rapidly infiltrate new hosts, if you’re a virus. So many people sharing the same airspace, with nowhere to go.

    A reported 300 people are currently under quarantine on a cruise ship owned by the Church of Scientology after a crewmember contracted measles aboard the ship, which is docked in the port of the Caribbean island St. Lucia, according to NBC News. The crewmember is in stable condition and is isolated on the ship, under the care of the ship’s doctor, according to the chief medical officer of St. Lucia, who also said in a statement that it is “likely that other persons on the boat may have been exposed.”
