What is going on with Boaty McMeaslesFace?

There was a brief mention of this on the evening news early this week. But it looks like the Great Scientology Media Machine has kicked and silenced all further news.
The few links I've found have almost no real information.

1. Your second story was just updated a couple of hours ago.

"Updated 10:31 AM ET, Fri May 3, 2019"

Besides, it's a pretty simple story.

People didn't get vaccinated.

People got measles in an isolated environment.

People got quarantined.

St. Lucia provided vaccines.

Ship left port.

2. The funniest part is that the ship is full of the best-paying members of Scientology.

The ship is holding a training-course to reach the 8th thetan-level. That's the highest rank of enlightenment you can get in Scientology. And it's f**king expensive.

Imagine booking a really expensive, extremely exclusive training-course on a luxurious ship... and then you get measles.

3. Boat receives vaccines, are they used?

Will the Plague Ship be allowed to dock anywhere without full vaccination records for all crew and passengers?

4. That IS a very interesting thought!!!

On the ship:

*People with immunity from having the measles in the past
*People with immunity from being vaccinated
*People with measles on ship now immune
*Unknown number of non-immune people on ship
*No record of 'refused'.

.. Hmmmmmm.......................

5. There's just so much irony in anything owned by Scientology being named "Freewinds".
