Abstract Background Cruise ships carry a large number of people in confined spaces with relative homogeneous mixing. On 3 February, 2020, an outbreak of COVID-19 on cruise ship Diamond Princess was reported with 10 initial cases, following an index case on board around 21-25th January. By 4th February, public health measures such as removal and isolation of ill passengers and quarantine of non-ill passengers were implemented. By 20th February, 619 of 3700 passengers and crew (17%) were tested…

Cruise ship travel in the era of COVID-19: A summary of outbreaks and a model of public health interventions

SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks on cruises were common during January-April 2020, and despite all interventions modeled, cruise travel still poses a significant SARS- CoV- 2 transmission risk.

Taking account of asymptomatic infections: A modeling study of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Diamond Princess cruise ship

Evidence is found to support a US CDC report that a high proportion of asymptomatic infections could partially explain the high attack rate among cruise ship passengers and crew and suggests that the conventional quarantine procedure may not be effective to stop the spread of virus.

Bayesian approach for modelling the dynamic of COVID-19 outbreak on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship

A Bayesian Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Recovery (SEIR) model with ordinary differential equation (ODE) was developed to estimate three parameters, including transmission coefficients, the latent period, and the recovery rate given the uncertainty implicated the outbreak of COVID-19 on cruise ship with modest population size.

Taking Account of Asymptomatic Infections in Modeling the Transmission Potential of the COVID-19 Outbreak on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship

Evidence is found to support a CDC report that "a high proportion of asymptomatic infections could partially explain the high attack rate among cruise ship passengers and crew" and raises questions on quarantine procedures in closed environments such as military vessels, cruise ships, dormitories, prisons, and other enclosed living complexes with high population densities.

Introduction: Cruise ship linked COVID-19 outbreaks have been identified as a potential source of community transmission of COVID-19 in Australia and worldwide. The risk factors and potential

The Analysis of COVID-19 Transmission on Diamond Princess Cruise Ship

This paper takes the COVID-19 transmission on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship as an example to study the transmission dynamics of COVID-19 in a relatively closed environment, and to evaluate control

The Bayesian Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Recovered model for the outbreak of COVID-19 on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship

An ordinary differential equation-based Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Recovery (SEIR) model with Bayesian underpinning is developed to estimate the main parameter of R0 determined by transmission coefficients, incubation period, and the recovery rate of COVID-19.

Cruise ships transport a significant number of people in confined spaces over an extended period than other modes of transportation, thereby presenting a unique environment to elevate human-to-human

COVID-19 isolation and containment strategies for ships: Lessons from the USS Theodore Roosevelt outbreak

A model-based examination of the USS Theodore Roosevelt outbreak is undertaken to understand the dynamics of COVID-19 spread aboard the aircraft carrier and suggest that rapid mass evacuation and widespread surveillance testing can be effective in these settings.

While influenza vaccination of passengers and crew may afford some protection, uptake and effectiveness may not be sufficient to prevent outbreaks, surveillance systems and early intervention measures, such as antiviral therapies, should be considered to detect and control such outbreaks.

Tissue taken at necropsy from the deceased woman and respiratory specimens from thirteen passengers and crew members with respiratory symptoms were analyzed, and the sequence analysis of the HA gene indicated that the virus was closely related to the B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus, Victoria lineage, a virus contained in the 2011-12 influenza vaccine for the Southern Hemisphere.

There is evidence that human-to-human transmission has occurred among close contacts since the middle of December 2019 and considerable efforts to reduce transmission will be required to control outbreaks if similar dynamics apply elsewhere.
