EXCLUSIVE: Corpus Christi native bounces from port to port in Indian Ocean; not allowed to dock due to coronavirus concerns

Saherish Surani is a graduate of Veterans Memorial High School and currently studying aboard. She is seeing first hand the trouble the coronavirus is causing.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Surani has been forced from port to port after making her way to Japan to study abroad at sea. She has been in touch with family and friends when wifi signals allow but often times she finds herself in a media blackout.

First Edition was able to track her down through her father who is our Three Star Health Dr. Salim Surani.

Ms. Surani is on a 10-hour time difference from here in the Coastal Bend. She shared her experiences being at sea since January and explained why when others are trying to get off, she wants to stay on through this historic moment.
