Not often do you see ships outnumber planes to this extent.
Couple of screenshots just now of our part of the world.

There are a lot of ship crew out there moving between countries even with borders "closed".
I hope the protocols at ports are being managed appropriately.

I work at a Port but not actually on the wharf itself & we are flat out loading ships with a food product.

Most countries are not allowing crew members to disembark. There are many reports of shipping companies not being able to fly crew for crew changeover. So many could be spending 3, 4 or 5 months at sea instead of more typical 8 to 10 weeks.

I guess we should appreciate the sacrifices these crews are making keeping world trade going for our benefit.

Much like the cruise ship industry who mostly seem to be now shifting crew amongst their fleet and sailing the majority of crew home.

Many now well beyond their contract, and obviously not getting tips just the low base pay
