On August 10, a press conference was held in Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province, to inform the public about the latest progress of the rescue mission of the "Hong Jin" Vessel.

 

The reporter learned from the press conference that at 1:20 a.m. on August 9, the "Hong Jin" Vessel sailed safely to the designated anchorage. At 11:00 a.m., Zhoushan customs, medical care, disease control, and other staff boarded the "Hong Jin" Vessel by tugboat to carry out sampling and health quarantine. At 9:30 p.m., the COVID-19 test samples of the crew on the "Hong Jin" Vessel were "double collected and double tested" by Zhoushan Center for disease control and Prevention and Zhoushan customs, and 16 crew members were tested positive.

 

Fang Wei, deputy mayor of Zhoushan People's Government, deputy leader of Zhoushan's epidemic prevention and control work leading group and director of Zhoushan's epidemic prevention and control office, said that because the weight capacity of "Hong Jin" Vessel is 47,000 tons and is loaded with 42,000 tons of coal, a certain number of crew members are required to be on guard on board. On this premise, Zhoushan Prevention and Control Office convened medical experts, disease control experts, relevant departments, shipowner and crew companies for consultation, comprehensively considered the mooring safety and crew's physical condition, and arranged the first 11 positive-tested crew members with the serious condition to be transferred to designated medical institutions for further diagnosis and treatment. The other nine crew members will remain on the ship until the crew management company's subsequent shift of crew members arrives on duty.

 

The expert group concluded that all 11 crew members admitted to the hospital were confirmed COVID-19 cases based on the medical history, CT, and laboratory examination results. At present, the patients' vital signs are stable.
