U.S. Navy Fights to Contain a Coronavirus Outbreak at Sea

The U.S. Navy is fighting to contain a coronavirus outbreak at sea in the Pacific Ocean, aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt.

“We are taking this threat very seriously and are working quickly to identify and isolate positive cases while preventing further spread of the virus aboard the ship.

The ship is headed to Guam for a previously-scheduled port visit, Navy officials said.

Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly said earlier on Thursday that the entire crew will be tested for coronavirus.

He said the first three sailors who were identified as positive and flown off the ship earlier this week “are currently doing fine,” and none of them have required hospitalization.
