Covid-19: Lawsuit prepared against Carnival Cruises

From Checkpoint, 6:10 pm on 6 April 2020

A class action is being prepared against Carnival Cruises after hundreds of passengers on the Ruby Princess became infected with Covid-19 and 10 people died.

The ship visited a number of New Zealand ports during its cruise and despite an outbreak of illness, those on board were allowed on shore.

Shine Lawyers in Australia says the passengers were not advised of the risk and were not monitored for symptoms. Jonathan Mitchell reports.
