How should cruise companies protect passengers and crew from COVID-19? We asked doctors

The world’s four largest cruise companies plan to hit the high seas later this summer. For Carnival Corporation, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, that means August 1. MSC Cruises plans to relaunch even sooner — mid-July.

But none of the companies has announced how it will protect passengers and crew from COVID-19 before a vaccine becomes available, at least a year from now.

Thanks, Mr President, but I asked my grandparents and they don’t want to die for your economy

“Are you prepared to die for the economy?” I asked my 76-year-old grandmother as she fried an egg this morning. She turned to me as though I’d just asked her to bash herself over the head with her skillet.

“No,” she snapped at me, before going back to making breakfast for her and my 79-year-old grandfather.

Yet that’s exactly what Republican Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said seniors are willing to do.
