Floridians


”Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has said there is no reason Holland America cruise ships with sick passengers on board should dock in Florida.

The MS Zaandam and MS Rotterdam have passed through the Panama Canal and are heading towards Fort Lauderdale. According to the Associated Press, there are over 300 US citizens on the ships.

"It's just a convenient place," he told reporters. "The problem is that takes resources away from the people in South Florida, and yes we do have available beds, but I don't want it to be a situation where those beds could have gone to Floridians."

More than 100 passengers and crew are sick with flu-like symptoms. Two deaths on the Zaandam are believed to be due to Covid-19, and several more on board have tested positive.

The ships could arrive in the area by tomorrow.

“Fort Lauderdale's mayor has also expressed concerns about sick passengers affecting the local health system, saying foreign nationals should be sent to their countries and Americans should be taken to hospitals that are not at risk of being overwhelmed.

DeSantis said they need to get medical care onto the vessels and the cruise company could work with federal officials in DC to arrange something as the state has "enough to deal with".

"We've got almost 22 million people just in this area," DeSantis said. "Having people from other states flee to here or to have a cruise ship come in it creates problems and we want to focus on Floridians."
