The cargo ship BBC California has berthed in Fremantle Harbour after crew members appear to have contracted the Delta variant of Covid 19

after  berthing at three ports in Indonesia. Premier Mark McGowan warned that the crew appeared to be”heavily infected.”

Liberty Blue Ship management, which is responsible for the BBC California, appeared to contradict Premier McGowan’s statement, saying that all eight of the

infected crew were in ‘relatively good condition.”

“Liberty Blue Ship management will continue to cooperate with the local authorities taking extra precautions to avoid any impact of COVID-19 on the

community in WA and to protect the health of its seafarers on board BBC California, ” a spokesman said.

A spokesman for the seafarer’s branch of the international Transport Workers Federation Federation said the union was closely monitoring the situation

but “commended” the McGowan Government for its handling of the BBC California so far.
