The Royal Caribbean Cruise liner that has over a 1000 Jamaican’s onboard is trying to bully the Jamaican state into accepting them potentially costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars to place them in Quarantine for two weeks. The Captain who has not gotten any clearance to take the Jamaican’s to the Island with a view to having them disembarked says he is coming anyway,still!
And even most terrifying, potentially putting the entire country at a major risk for a massive outbreak of COVID-19 cases if we cant manage that many persons coming in all at once. Potentially leading to infections and casualties on the scale of what happened in Italy.
Recently the Government mad the point that Jamaica is at its limits and cannot manage a huge influx of persons coming home. Furthermore, it is putting a huge strain on the Nation’s coffers. While the Jamaican’s has a right to return home, having a mass influx all at once could seriously jeopardize the well-being of the entire country.
