WA bound ship suspected to have COVID infected crew members on board

A Chinese bulk carrier ship is headed to Western Australia’s shores with four crew members on board suspected of having COVID-19.

The Darya Krishna – which is holding 20 people – is expected to dock in Fremantle today.

The vessel departed Singapore last Sunday after leaving Indonesia before alerting WA authorities.

The vessel could be the fourth ship out of Indonesia in recent weeks infected with the virus.
