Cruise ship with measles case quarantined. Scientology has a ship like it.

"One infected person can easily infect others".

Rev. John Carmichael, president of the Church of Scientology in NY, told BeliefNet.com in 2006 that the church does not have any "precepts or strictures" regarding vaccinations as a religious principle.

The ship was identified as the MV Freewinds, which is the same name as a cruise ship used by the Church of Scientology as a religious retreat, according to NBC News. The church couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

The disease is highly contagious and someone suffering from measles can spread the disease not just by coughing or sneezing, but by touching surfaces.

The Department of Health and Wellness and other agencies continue to provide support and welfare as needed to the ship.

This decision to quarantine the ship is in keeping with the health laws of St. Lucia.

"The ship's doctor has the confirmed case in isolation on the ship", Dr. Fredericks-James added.

Scientology does not have an official position on vaccines, Rev. John Carmichael, the president of the Church of Scientology in NY, said in an interview with Beliefnet.

In his signed article in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper, Liu said, "Britain can and must work with Huawei on 5G". The highly controversial decision was reportedly made at a meeting of Britain's National Security Council.

She said that Saint Lucian authorities remain in discussion with regional and worldwide health agencies such as the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).

Merlene Fredericks-James ordered the vessel named Freewinds quarantined in the port of Castries after internal deliberations and speaking with the Pan American Health Organization, according to CNN.

The vessel's home port is Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, but it sails under a Panamanian flag, according to MarineVessels.com.

While St. Lucian officials can keep people from leaving the ship, they cannot keep the ship from leaving.

"No one was allowed to leave the ship", Fredericks James said in a statement. While part of the problem is anti-vaxxers refusing to vaccinate their children due to the debunked belief that vaccines cause autism, the outbreak of measles has also been fueled by other, global factors.

The orders in St Lucia and California, as well as other urgent public health measures in NY and across the United States, come as the number of cases in the country has hit a 25-year high.

Measles has sickened more than 700 people in 22 US states this year, with federal officials saying the resurgence is driven by misinformation about vaccines.
