The Costa Victoria cruise ship will not be able to landing at the port of Trieste

Fedriga: we cannot allow the descent into the capital individuals who may be unwitting carriers coronavirus

To the Costa Victoriacruise ship, which is currently sailing along the Greek coast and is preparing to enter the Sea Adriatic, the landing at the port of Trieste has been banned. It's announced today the president of the Friuli Venice Region Giulia, Massimiliano Fedriga, explaining that, "in this emergency time, the safety of citizens and workers have the top priority and that's why the Authority Port System of the Eastern Adriatic Sea, complying with the Region's provisions, expressed its opposition docking in the port of Trieste on the Costa Victoria.

"That type of ship," Fedriga said, "is on board thousands of passengers and crew members. While understanding the plight of the people on board, today we cannot allow the docking and descent into the capital regional subjects who visited during the cruise many nations and that could potentially be unknowing vectors of coronavirus.' "There is no at the time -- added the governor -- a clear idea of the situation on board the ship, but in any case the measures imposed by the government to contain the epidemic do not allow free movement of people. Allow landing and disembarking would involve the activation of quarantine measures for thousands of people, further complicating an already difficult.'

According to the costa Cruises Coast Victoria was due to close on Saturday next with the arrival of the ship in the port of Venice, but the criticism situation even in Veneto caused by the pandemic has not yet allowed the ship to locate its final destination.
