The Ever Given, which measures slightly taller than the Empire State Building in New York City, was still stuck in the Suez Canal as of March 26 with many estimating it could be stuck well into the following week. It initially became stuck on March 23, and various efforts to refloat the massive container ship have so far been unsuccessful. The ship is causing a growing traffic jam of vessels as well as a mounting effect on global trade. The Suez Canal links the Mediterranean with the Red Sea and shipping lanes to Asia, making it one of the most important waterways in the world.
