U.N. chief calls for marine personnel be designated key workers

Within the CruisersForum we tend to view issues from a recreational boating perspective, but COVID-19 travel restrictions have had tremendous implications to commercial seafarers.

U.N. chief Antonio Guterres called on all countries on Friday, Juen 12th to designate seafarers and other marine personnel as key workers, warning that travel restrictions to combat the coronavirus had left hundreds of thousands stranded at sea for months.

"Unable to get off ships, the maximum sea time stipulated in international conventions is being ignored, with some seafarers marooned at sea for 15 months," Guterres spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.

It wonít work

The third work doesnít have seaman , they have slaves

You canít legitimize this by calling these slaves essential workers and giving the slave runners special privilege
