Container ship SINGAPORE BRIDGE interrupted her voyage from Port Klang Malaysia to Shenzhen China on May 13 in South China sea, requesting immediate medical assistance, reports Maritime Bulletin.
The ship sailed to Quy Nhon port, central Vietnam, and as of May 16 understood to be at anchor off Quy Nhon. Information is sketchy – one crew was reported to be “in critical condition”, three more crew also ill, probably seriously ill. All are having covid-like (or covid vaccination adverse effects like) symptoms.
According to EQUASIS, Synergy Singapore is crew manager, the company which is known as one of most avid advocates for mass crew vaccinations:
“Seafarers need to be protected through vaccination as soon as possible to facilitate their safe movement across borders…” says founder of shipmanager Synergy Marine, one Rajesh Unni. He believes, that the cost of getting vaccines for the crew is significantly less as compared with the exorbitant cost for crew changes or ship deviations.
Mass Crew Sickness
How about ships deviations with mass crew sickness as a result of vaccination? Are they cheaper? Oh, sure, they might say there wasn’t any mass vaccination, in this one and similar cases. Can we trust what they say? I doubt it. One thing I know – while there were no jabs, there were no mass sickness cases and/or deaths. Now it’s daily news, it’s routine.
