The crew member was due to be relieved and return home and was being tested by Brazilian medical authorities (ANVISA) so that he could be released.

In a statement, Maersk, the shipowner, confirmed that a member of the container ship Cap San Lorenzo was diagnosed with Covid-19 before embarking for Algeciras and is isolated because he is asymptomatic. According to the owner, other crew members were tested and all results were negative.
CAP San Lorenzo is currently quarantined for 14 days, according to local regulations. This is at least the fourth cargo ship to be quarantined at Port Santos in recent weeks.
