Here is a link for an article by cbc.ca that was published on March 5, 2020, that is entitled, 235 Canadians among 3,500 passengers on cruise ship quarantined over coronavirus fears: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/grand-princess-canadians-virus-1.5487485.
Please click on the link and read the entire article. I can share a bit (I copied/pasted):
A cruise ship that has been quarantined off the coast of California by public health officials over fears of a possible COVID-19 outbreak includes 235 Canadian passengers, Global Affairs Canada has confirmed.
According to a department statement, there are no confirmed cases on board the Grand Princess at present.
Earlier today, the California Air National Guard delivered test kits to the cruise ship so that passengers could be tested for the virus.
The ship, with about 3,500 people on board, was ordered to hold its position off the coast after a traveller from a previous voyage died of the disease and at least two others became infected.
"The ship will not come on shore until we appropriately assess the passengers," California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Thursday.
Princess Cruise Lines notified the passengers that federal health officials are investigating a "small cluster" of coronavirus cases connected to the ship's mid-February voyage.
The company asked current passengers to stay in their cabins until they are cleared by medical staff and said those who had been on the previous voyage should contact their doctors if they develop fever or other symptoms.Wasn't that awful how people were suffering?!
I just hope that many of those people prayed.
Thinking about that, made me think about Philippians 4:6, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.".
Amen! Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Prayer IS so very important!
Do you pray?
I do... because I belong to Him... and I read the entire Bible every year!
If you read the Bible, you will realize that prayer IS truly important... and so IS He!
And then,you will be truly thankful... like me.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
