Medics refusing to board ships arriving from China?

Strange news, or rumors, from Greece – mega container ship YM WARRANTY can’t enter Piraeus port on arrival from China, via Singapore and Suez, because medical facilities can’t provide proper and reliable medical check of ship’s crew. It is said, that port’s medics refused to board the ship, to carry out crew health screening. With that said, there were no alerts from ship’s Master, that there’s anyone ill on board, or having virus-like symptoms. What’s going on, yet unclear.
Container ship YM WARRANTY, IMO 9757228, dwt 147500, capacity 13900 TEU, built 2019, flag Panama, manager YM LINE.
