A cruise ship expected to arrive in Singapore next week has been diverted to Fremantle over coronavirus concerns.
The Queen Mary 2, currently in Phuket, Thailand is scheduled to travel straight to WA over the next nine days, arriving at Fremantle Port on February 18.
It comes as cruise operator Cunard blamed the change in itinerary on the rapidly growing restrictions on travel amid the global coronavirus crisis.

From my experience with CCP this is starting to get close to a boiling point where the CCP will do something drastic to shift blame. They are getting very defensive about the lab accusations which as we like to say "you take flak when you're over the target" and things are starting to wear on them.
Inside China, people are starting to speak up. Wife played some videos from Wechat while we were doing errands today and I listened to quite a number of people just saying f*ck it and speaking out against CCP. The ones we listened to were younger but there were some older ones as well.
I think the social instability they feared is here and will continue to boil. Hopefully, international pressure will make the CCP admit the truth but I sincerely doubt it. I still think that Xi will get offered up as a scapegoat, maybe the odd general or 2 if they were to admit the lab theory is correct.

Its called being spineless wimps.
We were allowing flights in from china for a week longer than other countries
Now we are accepting cruise liners, when asian nations are starting to ban them from entry?
China owns us, this is Chinese pressure.
Nothing to do with tourism
