Inspectors on QE2 as norovirus hits

LOS ANGELES 22 January – Epidemiologists from the Centers for Disease Control are among the crew and passengers aboard the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth 2 as it arrives in San Pedro, California, today amid concern over a norovirus outbreak. So far, 16% of the ship's passengers have been affected. The CDC in Atlanta – which monitors cruise ship sanitation - says that by late last week, more than 260 of the ship’s 1,652 passengers and 26 of its thousand crew members had fallen ill during the vessel’s round-the-world cruise that began in Southampton on 2 January. The CDC team boarded the ship in Acapulco, its last call before LA, and conducted inspections and inquiries during the brief transit to the US. Spokesmen at Carnival-owned Cunard Line, the vessel’s operator, have told the media that sanitation procedures were immediately elevated following first signs of the outbreak, the first this year, and that reports of new cases are subsiding. Of those passengers and crew reporting symptoms of the illness, 14 were placed in isolation last week, the CDC says, adding that the first complaints of symptoms came within three days of the vessel’s departure as it was en route to New York on the cruise’s first leg.
