Two ships under quarantine in Kiel

Two ships are presently under the quarantine in Kiel port: general cargo ship BBC MAINE since Nov 9, and tanker IRENE DP since Nov 16. BBC MAINE arrived from Hamina Finland to transit Kiel Canal with destination Hamburg, IRENE DP arrived from Gdansk Poland. Both ships had covid cases on board. Circumstances and details remain unknown, they’re not given, missed totally. It’s just said, that “there was at least one case”. Case of what? Positive tests or real sickness, how many sailors affected, how about vaccination status? Were the cases so-called “breakthrough cases”, or genuine? Nothing. The strange absence of news on quarantines, sickness and deaths among crews, is rather suspicious. Is it calm before the storm?
