COVID-19 and Seafarers' Ministry (MARE102)

The current outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-2019) was first reported from Wuhan, China, on December 31, 2019. Early in the new year, mainland China began policies of self-containment and quarantine to slow the spread of the disease and allow health care systems to cope. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognized it as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. Policies like China's have spread around the world, affecting virtually all countries and ports in which ICMA’s members are present. The activities of seafarers’ centers and ship visiting in ports around the globe have been curtailed or significantly reduced. As ministries think about how to operate under the current restrictions, and with exit strategies slowly emerging, this course is designed to share best practice and experience. This course uses the see-judge-act method to produce practical results and keep our focus on the welfare of seafarers.
