Crew From Ruby Princess Cruise Ship Arrive At Sydney Airport Ahead Of Australian Departure

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - APRIL 23: A Cebu Pacific aircraft which will transport crew from the Ruby Princess cruise ship to Manila in the Philippines, is seen on the tarmac at Sydney International Airport on April 23, 2020 in Sydney, Australia. More than 300 crew from the COVID-19 stricken Ruby Princess are being sent home on repatriation flights this afternoon ahead of the cruise ship's departure from its Port Kembla berth later today. Australian Border Force has ordered the Ruby Princess to depart Australian waters today, as two separate inquiries continue over how the ship's 2700 passengers were allowed to disembark in Sydney in March without adequate health checks during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A special commission of inquiry has been established by the NSW government over the handling of the Ruby Princess' arrival into Sydney on 19 March, while NSW Police are also conducting a separate criminal investigation. There are now 21 deaths linked to the Ruby Princess along with more than 600 confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) cases. (Photo by Brook Mitchell/Getty Images)
