Automatic TRANSCRIPT

We found out that cruising might restart emit july with ninety. Five percent of passengers fully vaccinated. Long story short. What happened. Was that usa today.

Or if they don't wanna do that they can still do simulated forages and they'll get a faster response from the. Cdc that's my understanding
