Sixteen Kiwis are "trapped" on a cruise off Uruguay with an escalating crisis on board. The doctor is among nine people still on the Australian-flagged cruise ship who have fevers, according to the latest update from Aurora Expeditions. They left New Zealand on March 11 and their cruise left Argentina on March 15 "before anything untoward happened", Tina said. We have been in contact with the Atgen-Diagnostica Lab in Montevideo that is approved and authorised by the Uruguay Health Ministry. The ship left Antarctica early, skipped the planned leg of the journey in South Georgia and headed to the Falkland Islands.
