A cruise ship that is Australia’s largest single source of coronavirus infections set sail off Australian shores, Thursday, April 23, a month after it was ordered to leave.
The Ruby Princess has been linked to 19 deaths in Australia and two in the U.S.
An investigation into why 2,700 passengers and crew were allowed to disembark in Sydney in March before the results of coronavirus tests were known is underway.
Princess Cruises did not disclose where the ship is heading.
