He allegedly, died from covid, 5 more crew were found test positive. Indonesian authorities, notwithstanding 1,5 month anchorage isolation, refused to accept Captain’s body, along with other SEA nations, so operator of the ship, Hapag-Lloyd, had no other choice except to re-direct the ship back to Europe, and declare a Force Majeure.
