Test for pilot and medical services: aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt with infected sailors arrives in Guam


From the USA, reports come that the command of the country's naval forces has made a final decision about the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt. Recall that on an aircraft carrier 25 cases of seafarers' infection with a new type of coronavirus were previously detected, after which the U.S. Navy began to discuss the question of what to do with a warship on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean.


According to the latest information, the aircraft carrier, on board of which there are more than 5 thousand people, arrived at the naval base of the island of Guam. At the same time, when reporters asked the Acting Secretary of the United States Navy how many sailors were currently infected with COVID-19, the official said that he could not accurately answer this question.

It became known that the first cases of coronavirus infection by American sailors aboard the Theodore Roosevelt appeared approximately two weeks after the US Navy ship entered the Vietnamese port of Danang. The United States Navy Command claims to “see no direct dependency,” adding the following:

At the time USS Theodore Roosevelt entered Danang, there were only 16 cases.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon reports that after the arrival of "Theodore Roosevelt" at the US Navy base on the island of Guam, the crew of the warship is quarantined, the duration of which will be "up to a month." We are talking about the naval base of Apra.

Against this background, data appeared on the difficulties faced by the pilot service of Apra Harbor. The fact is that the aircraft carrier’s draft is 11,3 m. In this case, the draft of ships that enter the so-called inner harbor of Apra Harbor should not exceed 9,8 m. There is also an external harbor in Apra Harbor, where there is more depth, however, there were problems for the aircraft carrier due to the presence of reefs scattered around the harbor, as well as shallow areas.

According to experts, the arrival of the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" in April was a real test for the pilotage service, not to mention the service of military doctors. The medical service is busy identifying everyone who is infected with the new coronavirus. To do this, the necessary test systems have been delivered to the island - the work ahead is large-scale.

The whole problem for the US Navy at the moment is that the aircraft carrier actually dropped out of planned use for at least a month. In Guam, members of his crew will have a long quarantine, and the ship itself will be subject to a “capital disinfection”, for which hundreds of US Navy and other forces and services will be involved. Moreover, all of them must be provided with special protective equipment.

        In what course the infection spreads I know, it is traced in time.

      Damn, it's just a plot for a Hollywood blockbuster! Type "Under siege."
      A huge aircraft carrier dominated by a coronavirus ...
      Empty decks and stepping stones.
      Crowded hospitals.
      Mutant American sailors.
      Invariably brave cook Steven Seagal, (by the way with a Russian passport in his pocket) cracking down on breeded zombies with the help of a huge butcher cleaver and irresistible aikido techniques.
      Ay, scriptwriters, selling the plot. Write in a personal. wink

      I always thought and said - that we are “afraid” of a mess, but “forget” that if a serious virus smells, it can clean the planet without any war.
      When they suddenly began to take out the sides and the Ministry of Emergency Situations from China for our citizens, I reacted rather lightly to this, but when it bounced in Europe and Europe, it became clear that the virus was quite serious.

      The domino effect seems to have worked in New York.
      What is happening in New York hospitals is just awful. It’s even hard for me to find the words to describe it

      - the American doctor begins his story.

      According to her, New York physicians never prepared and did not expect such a thing to happen in the USA.

      Liga Tversky notes that the city was in a panic. Millions of residents are trying to pass tests for the presence of coronavirus, but the hospitals do not have the right amount to provide everyone.

      We don’t have enough ventilation devices, because of this, people die

      She continues.

      Lack of knowledge about coronavirus, lack of qualified personnel, lack of equipment - this is what American medicine had to face.

        Now imagine what conclusions American and Western political technologists will draw when it turns out that China and Russia have suffered the least damage from COVID-19. I am afraid after the relatively harmless provocation of the British special services in Salisbury, now the consequences of the Russophobic propaganda campaign of the company may serve as an occasion for a full-scale war.

        And they rarely die of gonorrhea.
        The pathogen does not penetrate into the cells of the mucous membrane, but remains on the surface or in the intercellular space. If the gonococcus has got into the blood, then it dies quickly enough.

        In our case, the word "pandemic" I used in the sense: "went shirt to break." Roosevelt, respectively, may be the first in a series of similar ones.

        There, they do not pay extra for oil itself when you pick it up, but for its storage and maintenance. Because the oil itself does not belong to the storage facilities. The warrior, as usual, throws a shot at the fan without going into the details. And the devil is in them.
