Meanwhile, the ship, according to its trace, left Ensenada’s anchorage around 0000 UTC on December 4, likely resuming the voyage, possibly not – its destination is not yet clear, with AIS displaying confusing information.
So it’s all covid, eh? As usual, no information on the crew’s “vaccination” status, nothing, just a “positive test” and massive illness of the crew. Lies and cover-up, new normal, no wonder.
