Quarantine restrictions were applied to Singapore bunker tanker NewOcean 6 effective Tuesday (30 December) due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) related issues, learned Singapore bunker publication Manifold Times.
“The vessel [NewOcean 6] immediately underwent quarantine after a crew member was discovered to be infected with the Covid-19 virus,” confirmed a source.
“We expect the vessel to be isolated for at least 14 days.”
Another person with inside knowledge of the matter, meanwhile, said to date only a single crew member has been tested positive for Covid-19.
“We are still awaiting test results for the remaining crew and will decide how to proceed on the crew changeover plan from there on,” he informed.
“So far, we have been advised for the vessel to undergo a two-week quarantine period.”
The 2014-built NewOcean 6 is a 4,679 dwt bunker tanker sailing under the Singapore flag.
Note: Manifold Times will provide an update when NewOcean 6 returns to the market.
