A Malta-flagged cruise ship is returning to the Cretan port of Irakleio from the Aegean island of Milos on Monday after 12 crew members tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Mein Schiff 6 cruise-liner, which is carrying nearly 1,000 passengers, is one of the few cruise-ships sailing in the Aegean at this time.

The crew members, who have been isolated and are being submitted to a second round of tests, were found to have contracted the virus after 150 sample tests were conducted.
