U.S. Air Force reports triple increase in coronavirus-affected pilots

The number of US military pilots infected with coronavirus has more than tripled in a week. According to the press service of the US Air Force, at the moment the disease has been recorded in 105 pilots.


The U.S. Air Force recorded more than three-fold increase in coronavirus-infected combat pilots. According to the command, a total of 105 pilots have fallen ill at the moment, although there were only 34 a week ago. In addition, 78 family members of military pilots, civil servants and air force contractors were also diagnosed with the disease.

In total, according to the Pentagon, to date, the armed forces have recorded 309 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection by military personnel, 108 family members, 134 civil servants and 62 specialists from contractors.

According to US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, the Pentagon believes that the coronavirus epidemic in the United States will last several months, but this "will not jeopardize the combat readiness" of the US armed forces.

I think that in general for the US armed forces there will be a moderately low level of impact on combat readiness

said General Mark Millie, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

An even more difficult situation is developing among the civilian population. To date, according to official figures, only confirmed cases of infection have been recorded over 104 thousand people.

          And not only in the United States and not because someone is hiding, but because they are underexplored, some experts say that you can multiply by 10 ...

            I agree, this is not a matter of the number of positive tests, but as a percentage of the total number of tested.
            To date, In the States, on average, every 7th test is positive. It’s clear that only people who have any symptoms or communicate with infected people go to the laboratory. But all the same, considering that most, especially young people, Coronavirus is asymptomatic, the problem is much larger.

        Actually, examining so many people in a short time is a serious task. (and add with a negative, then even more figure) Not everything is so bad in this country with medicine. And the infection spread quickly across the United States - so they have a plane inside the country, like in our minibus. He sat down along the way, but flew.

        Compared their data and ours. Virtually no difference. Our updates once a day, they are every few minutes - because there is very little difference.
        As usual - Russophobia blooms and smells.
        Even in such a situation they cannot do without fantasies about the “bad Russians”. Do they have Russophobia in the genotype?

            The leaders of the Bolsheviks Trotsky and Litvinov had very close and friendly contacts with government and especially with non-governmental, but very influential groups of capitalists of the United States and Britain. In the years 20-21, they helped them very well with 900 tons of gold transported from “Soviet Russia”.
            And the “Russophobia” of Amers is the work of an exceptionally well-known banking and financial group with a nationalist oddity who managed to impose her opinion on the US government back in 1903. Prior to this, relations between the Russian Empire and the United States were quite friendly and they had no complaints against each other.

      Given that this hat began to run there from August 5, 2019, after this infection was left out of the bacteriological laboratory, which was hastily closed from the word completely, then the official numbers there are generally prohibitive. The most interesting thing is that they patented this virus back in 2015, which only confirms that it was created artificially. This virus, the mattresses were trying to disguise the harmful effects of vipers on the pulmonary system, and pulled with recognition until the coronavirus shot in China, which was "designated" as the focus of the epidemic. In short, mattresses now comprehend the meaning of the Russian proverb - "Do not dig another hole, you yourself will fall into it." It is a pity that all countries have to pay for it.

                      Well, if you believe these two, in America all have a two-story house, 2-3 cars, a trimmed lawn and everyone lives in abundance :)
                      But in real life, many live in huts, ride in rusty pepelatsy, buy at discounts in Volmart, and second-hand houses there are other ones that are in abundance in any country. and how many homeless people and drug addicts are there :)
                      and as usual, people kvass seriously only at the beginning or the first half of the month, when the salary has arrived; but these are my subjective observations that I received while visiting bars and others. :)

                        We had a project in the Russian Federation in 2018 and we wrote in boiling water on prices and how cool it is in Moscow and everything is cheap, and they speak nasvensky; only pluses :) But something tells me that shift workers and salaries are different and you need to look differently, because in Russia I am sure many people do not have enough salaries for a decent life; For we really didn’t like Singapore and expensive, and the laws are boring (because you don’t really want to go all expensive)

    The farther, the greater the likelihood that a coronovirus from the United States is spreading, and not from China. More precisely, the "zero patient" NATO. They rather slipped China, while they themselves concealed the danger.

    If the states have such a high level of disease, then the states are very profitable and very. Purely my opinion.
    1) reduce the number of homeless people.
    2) reduce unemployment benefits.
    3) the majority of the population does not have medical insurance.
    4) a test of the virus on their own and not only in other countries to reduce population density, maybe nonsense, and maybe countries have agreed on this.
    5) having infected their own, they conduct an antidote test, if a war happens then the US Air Force should have an antidote in the infectious territories, such as Russia and China.
    Everything may be nonsense, but what are the Americans not joking with !?
