All crew members stranded on the virus-infected cruise ship Ruby Princess will be tested for Covid-19 within 48 hours, the New South Wales government has promised.

Transportation workers’ advocates said on Wednesday that only a quarter of the 1,100 crew members had been tested, while other states were extending testing to anyone with even mild symptoms.

Nationally, there have been over 600 confirmed cases and 19 deaths from the coronavirus epidemic aboard Ruby Princess. So far, 149 crew members have tested positive on approximately 300 tests.
