The family of a cruise ship passenger who died of COVID-19 is suing Carnival and Princess Cruises.
Ronald Wong, 64, was a passenger, with his wife, on a trip last February from San Francisco to Mexico.
A month later he died in a California hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.
Wong's family says the cruise line and its parent company should have known that a passenger on the ship's previous voyage had coronavirus.
Wong's trip on the Grand Princess ended up docking at the Port of Oakland on March 9.
A total of 131 people on the ship tested positive for the coronavirus, and five died.
Wong's wife also contracted COVID-19 but recovered.
The Wong lawsuit is one of roughly a dozen filed by Grand Princess passengers or their families.
Princess Cruises spokeswoman says the company does not comment on pending litigation.
