The aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" will continue to perform combat missions

The American aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, on board of which a coronavirus outbreak is recorded, will not be quarantined in the port, but will continue to carry out combat missions. This was stated by the commander of the United States naval operations, Admiral Mike Guilday.


Speaking at a briefing on the situation on the aircraft carrier, Gilday said that the ship will remain in service and that he is still ready to carry out the tasks.

As for Theodore Roosevelt, we have made great progress in testing (among the crew - approx.) And returning people from the ship. We will increase testing efforts. We will spend it fast. Aircraft carrier in full (performs its functions - approx.), It remains

- declared admiral.

In turn, the acting US Navy Secretary Thomas Modley said the Navy’s command plans to remove 2700 crew members from the aircraft carrier, but part of the crew will remain and will support the aircraft carrier in combat so that, if necessary, the ship leaves.

We have already removed about 1 thousand personnel from the ship. And over the next couple of days, we expect to bring 2700 people ashore. I want to note that we cannot and will not remove the entire crew from the ship

- he explained.

Modley also said that currently 93 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded on board, a total of 1273 people have been tested, but data on them has not yet arrived.

Earlier, US Secretary Mark Esper emphasized that despite the spread of the coronavirus, the Pentagon will not take measures that will make it impossible for the American army to carry out tasks.

It is impossible to close the armed forces. We have a mission - protecting the United States and its citizens, and we are fulfilling it

- the minister said.

      So there are simply no other aircraft carriers. Another in the Persian Gulf, that's all. The rest are not combat-ready, either under repair, or where else. The American aircraft carrier flew something today. lol On the other hand, to remove half the crew and at the same time carry out combat missions, as it is doubtful. Two shifts in a row without a break? And if, for example, all the minders got sick, or I don’t know, the hangar team? Will the cooks (excuse me, coca) serve? This is weird.

        And why is this aircraft carrier needed, he wanders around the world "firing hotly". Remove all unnecessary, leave 50 people to maintain life, and anchor. The main thing is not the actions of the aircraft carrier, but simply its presence. And they need just as a monument afloat.

      At first, I also thought so about rotation and infection, but what thought came up, if everything that is said about COVID19 is true and if the medical board in the states is normal and the soldiers are physically strong then we can assume that most of the crew will be ill and will receive immunity to the virus, they will leave the ship the minimum crew for servicing the reactor, if they become infected, you will have to replace them either with those who have already been ill if the patients have the appropriate skills, or they will send a replacement and provide it with increased protection means and will wait 20 to 30 days. That is how much the virus is treated on average judging by the publications. In addition, yesterday in the comments we discussed the topic of disinfection of a ship as it is expensive and difficult, in principle, I also thought so at first, but now I think why it is enough to disinfect it just wait until the virus dies on the surfaces and it lives 15 days, it can probably take a little longer. PS If everything is done correctly, then they can generally get a team with immunity. But as they say, "it was smooth on paper, but forgot about the ravines" not everything about the virus and immunity is known, it is not known either what they are with the soldiers as they are in fact, healthy as in a movie or not at all. And a lot of all sorts of unforeseen factors, including human ones. So let's see what happens.

        The idea is interesting, but unlikely. Even if we go this way, then they will have to wait for unified ones for a long time. Because not everyone gets sick and not immediately, but given the number of teams, we get a mathematical progression. But in any case, it will be necessary to disinfect, no one has canceled the relapse, even in cases of illness.

    plans to remove 2700 crew members from the aircraft carrier
    With a crew of 3200 people, more than 80% of the crew will have to be replaced. And by whom? After all, they cried about understaffing in the armed forces, the lack of pilots. Go ahead, the main thing
    We have a mission - protecting the United States and its citizens, and we are fulfilling it

      This is how to count. Considering how many US the AN is and how many decades
      they have them, in the "reservists" for the crew for each AN there.
      Another thing is that even in the shopping center, where the crew has several sailors,
      where a roar and a chatter, one nod of your head or a look is enough,
      so that one sailor understands another second to implement the decision.
      To work in the crew of 4000 people, a year is not enough.

    A logical decision, although not cheap.
    Carry out 100% testing of the crew for the virus and leave the minimum necessary for the tasks
    Anyway, a big war is not expected in the coming months, so the entire crew is optional

    The whole world knows the United States as the main gendarme and aggressor of the planet.
    And you see, they fulfill the mission in this way, they protect their citizens - in Korea, in Vietnam, in Afghanistan, in Libya, in Syria ........

    US Navy Command would sometimes be useful to watch Hollywood movies. For example, the 1986 Dolphin Scream.
    The US Navy nuclear submarine Archelon is sent on combat duty. On board are four missiles with a secret virus - the latest biological weapons, "far superior (so in the movie!) To nuclear capabilities." As a result of the depressurization of the rocket, the virus enters the boat and infects the crew. The fleet command gives Archelon an order to remain on alert, as there is no cure for the virus. Gradually, the crew begins to go crazy and refuses to obey the boat commander. The “Chef” is not in himself - in an attempt to take revenge on the world, he gives the order to sink passenger ships, and then he wants to launch rockets with a virus in order to destroy humanity. At the last moment, the captain changes his mind and sends the boat into a vertical dive to the bottom of the ocean.

    We just change his combat missions. There was an aircraft carrier, now there will be a virus carrier. Believe me, it is much cheaper and more productive.

    This aircraft carrier is simply a skylight, if you do not smoke muddy concepts about the "mission" and other nonsense.
    One life support and watch on duty will eat up all the remaining personnel, and it is not known how many reactors, power engineers, aircraft technicians, and physicians themselves remain in service.
