The Grand Princess cruise ship has 21 passengers who have tested positive for the coronavirus.
The ship is planned to dock in Oakland on Monday to let Americans off.
One Brit told the BBC that people are fighting over rotten food on the ship.
(According to Business Insider on MSN) A 77-year-old woman on the coronavirus-stricken cruise ship, the Grand Princess, said that passengers have been fighting over rotten food.
Margaret Bartlett told the BBC that she’s been confined to her cabin, which has no balcony. There are 21 people who have tested positive for the coronavirus on the ship, which is due to dock Monday in Oakland, California.
“The food is rotten and terrible and we have to fight for it,” Bartlett told the network. “It is not good enough.”
Americans are scheduled to disembark in Oakland and be taken to military bases in California, Texas, and Georgia, the BBC reported.
Overall, 46 people on the Grand Princess were tested for the novel coronavirus. Of them, 24 people tested negative, and one test was inconclusive, Vice President Mike Pence said in a press conference on Friday.
More than 3,500 people were aboard the ship for a two-week cruise from San Francisco to Hawaii when the trip ground to a halt on Wednesday.
