SAO PAULO – Brazilian media is reporting that a crew member on board the Hamburg Sud container ship CAP SAN LORENZO has tested positive for COVID19 at Port Santos in Brazil.

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.

All 26 crew members have now been tested and cargo operations on the ship have been cancelled. The vessel was taken to outer anchorage and anchored to wait for testing results of its other crew members.

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.
