A cruise ship that arrived in Rotterdam on Thursday morning spent several hours in quarantine due to sick passengers. Dozens of passengers suffered from stomach problems, presumably due to a norovirus infection, NOS reports.
The norovirus causes gastroenteritis and is highly contagious. The ship, named AidaPerla, moored at the Wilhelminakade in Rotterdam on Thursday morning. During the trip around 70 passengers reported with symptoms of gastroenteritis. They were cared for on board.
