KINGSTON, Jamaica — A cruise ship with over 4500 passengers and over 1600 crew members was on Tuesday denied access to the port of call in Ocho Rios, St Ann after it was discovered that crew member had a cough, fever and associated muscle pains with a travel history to a country of interest relating to the novel coronavirus.

A man was killed and a one-year-old shot and injured on West Street in downtown Kingston on Sunday when gunmen acted on threats issued three weeks before to “kill anything in sight”.

And on Wednesday Sri Lanka thrashed the West Indies by 161 runs in the second One-Day International to clinch the series.
