Cruise ship shunned over coronavirus fears arrives in Cambodia

A cruise ship which had spent two weeks at sea after being turned away by five countries over fears that someone aboard may have the coronavirus arrived in Cambodia on Thursday, satellite tracking data showed.
The MS Westerdam arrived at an anchoring point in the Cambodian port town of Sihanoukville, according to data published by the Marine Traffic website.
Although no passengers have fallen ill on board, the ship had been turned away by Japan, Taiwan, Guam, the Philippines and Thailand over fears that someone on the cruise could have the new flu-like virus that has killed more than 1,300 people, almost all of them in China.
The ship is operated by a unit of Miami-based Carnival Corp.
