COVID-19: After 30 confirmed cases, ships are stopped in RJ

It's been a week since four ships supporting the oil and natural gas E&P platforms have been stopped in Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro. The reason would be the confirmation of cases of contamination by the new coronavirus among embedded teams.

This Thursday (23), the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) is evaluating whether vessels can go to offshore fields. According to information, at least one of these vessels provides services to Petrobras in the exploration of the pre-salt.

In addition to the subsea 7 Brazil ship, with three confirmed cases of the disease, fulmar offshore support vessels are parked on the coast of Rio de Janeiro, with eight positive cases; Navegantes Pride, with 14 cases; and Skandi Peregrino, with 5 isolated cases inside the ship. On the other ships workers with confirmed cases were isolated in hotels.
