Coronavirus: South Africans stranded on cruise ships in Italy plead for government help


Italy announces 651 more COVID-19 deaths and almost 4,000 new cases
Over the past 24 hours, another 651 people have died from the COVID-19 coronavirus in Italy, yet the authorities say there is a glimmer of hope.
Several South Africans remain stranded on two cruise liners in Italy, which has been hard hit by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Leigh Dobblin, 63, from Ballito in KwaZulu-Natal, said they have been stranded on board the Costa Luminosa cruise liner since 24 February.
"We are currently docked at port Savona in Italy and have been confined to our cabins for nine days now and they are no longer telling us anything anymore," she said.
Dobblin indicated that initially they were informed there were 100 South African citizens on board.
