All crew from a livestock ship that has been stranded at a West Australian port for greater than three weeks have been cleared of COVID-19.

The Al Kuwait docked at Fremantle on May 22, with 21 of its 48 multinational crew subsequently testing optimistic for the virus.

They had been remoted in lodges, with one case deteriorating and requiring hospitalisation.

But the ultimate six instances recovered in a single day, and the vessel might be loaded with 50,000 sheep earlier than its departure deadline on Wednesday.

The deadline was imposed by the federal Department of Agriculture because it granted the vessel an exemption to the northern summer time dwell export ban, which started on June 1.

The exemption has been welcomed by the business, however animal welfare teams are outraged.

The ban was launched this yr in response to 1000’s of sheep dying from warmth stress aboard the Awassi Express in 2017.

WA now has solely two energetic COVID-19 instances, with no new infections confirmed on Monday.
