Chelsea Gaven started this petition to department of foreign affairs

My grandparents are currently amongst less than 100 Australians stuck on the Coral Princess cruise ship off the coast of Barbados. As of yesterday there have been 12 confirmed cases of Covid 19 on board. There has been a huge mistake in which passengers who disembarked this ship were allowed back on board without being quarantined. It is highly likely that this is how the virus made its way onto the ship.

The purpose of this petition is to put pressure on the Australian Government to get these citizens home! It is an incredibly high risk situation they have been placed in and minimal assistance has been provided by the Australian Government. When my grandparents left for this holiday there were no known cases of Covid 19 in South America, and they were not given advice not to travel.

The current limited information that we have been provided with is that there are many possible scenarios for how these Australians will get off this cruise, however all of the options are high risk and it is just not good enough! The Australian Government needs to immediately take action to directly and swiftly evacuate these citizens. 

I am pleading that everyone possible sign and share this petition to bring this cruise to the attention of the Australian media and government so that these Australians aren’t forgotten!  

Thankyou
