Chemical tanker BOW SUMMER arrived at Antwerp anchorage in the evening Oct 10 from Durban South Africa, with a short stop at Las Palmas Canary island, on Oct 5-6 (Bunkering, re-supplies, crew change?). Tanker remained at anchor until Oct 15, when she was berthed at BASF Terminal in Antwerp. One crew died on Oct 18, allegedly (officially) from covid.
13 out of 26 crew were positively tested, and have been placed inshore quarantine facilities. Odfjell confirmed the death and mass positive testing to Belgium industry magazine Flows and said it will replace the crew.
What is it exactly seaman died from? Was he jabbed? When and with what? What about the rest of the crew, their jab status, their health? ( sourcing: FleetMon )
