The police found a deceased person on Friday on a ship at the Waalhaven in Rotterdam.

It is not clear where the person died. The forensic investigation will conduct an investigation into the body on Friday, a spokesperson for the Rijnmond Security Region has told NU.nl. There are 77 crew members on the ship.

Another man was taken off the ship on Wednesday, because he showed signs of the corona virus. In Erasmus MC, the man was found to be infected with COVID-19.

Since then, thirteen other crew members, who also show signs of the coronavirus, have been isolated in isolation.

The ship has been moored in the port of Rotterdam since March 23. The spokesman did not know where the ship originally came from.
