World Health Organisation officially declares COVID-19 as a pandemic.
It is official - WHO has declared coronavirus (COVID-19) not only an epidemic but a global pandemic. This would inherently mean that the virus is spreading very quickly and the message to all is that it is vitally important that all countries continue to take appropriate measures to keep fighting in order to contain the spread of this disease.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
