Going home - read about problems with disembarkation

Mental health has been challenged to the limits by COVID-19. More than one year after the pandemic began, the impact on the seafaring community continues to be felt.

By the end of June 2021, worldwide total deaths due to COVID-19 had reached almost four million, yet maritime transport continued operating, serving the needs of the world’s populations.

Loneliness and social isolation have always been present, but this has been further enhanced by the cancellation of almost all shore leave.

Nigel Griffiths, Chairman of the Marine Advisory Medical & Repatriation Service, discusses the difficulties faced in repatriating seafarers suffering from mental health issues in the time of COVID in Triton 2-2021.
