Seafarer coronavirus case in Singapore

(Posted on 31/01/20)

The Maritime Port Authority of Singapore has reported that on 29 January 2020, there was a confirmed case of a crew member with the Wuhan coronavirus infection, who was working onboard a ship in Singapore waters. 

The MPA has urged the shipping community to take precautionary measures, as well as to remain vigilant and adopt good hygiene practices at all times. 

Ship crew who feel unwell, experience respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, shortness of breath) or feel feverish, should inform the Master of the ship immediately. The Master of the ship should then contact his ship’s agent and make the necessary arrangements to seek medical attention. 

MPA will continue to implement temperature screening at all sea checkpoints, PSA Terminals and Jurong Port, for inbound travellers. In addition, new visitors with recent travel history in Hubei or with PRC passports issued in Hubei, will not be allowed entry into Singapore or transit through Singapore.

MPA will also continue to monitor the evolving situation and work closely with partner agencies and the industry to implement additional measures if needed.
