CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) GUIDANCE FOR SHIP OPERATORS FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE HEATH OF SEAFARERS
|D O W N L O A D|
The present official guidance was prepared by the specialists of the CS, i.e. International Chamber of Shipping in response to the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus and in order to provide the necessary support to the crew members of the vessels operating in international waters.
The main objective of the authors of this guide was to assist the shipping companies trying to follow the instructions that are issued by the UN agencies including the WHO, IMO and ILO. The COVID-19 virus was reported in China in 2019 and since then the number of disease cases has been growing; the geography of the virus has already expanded and covered almost all countries of the world.
Note that there is no vaccine readily available to prevent from or fight the virus. In the absence of the vaccine, we all need to be duly concentrated on the preventative measures that shall be taken as necessary in order to stop spreading the disease. We would recommend the present publication be printed and held on board every single vessel undertaking both international and domestic sea voyages. No doubt that carefully following all instructions and advice provided in the pages of this volume will eventually contribute to the health of the personnel on board.
