Threat COVID-19: French aircraft carrier heading home


France's only aircraft carrier, Charles de Gaulle, is heading home due to fears that about 40 sailors on board might become infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus. This happened against the backdrop of a massive disease of sailors on the American pennant of a similar class Theodore Roosevelt and the appearance of infection on the Nimitz aircraft carrier of the US Navy.


At Charles de Gaulle there are approximately 2 thousand people. Since January of this year, he carried out combat missions at sea, his planned return was expected on April 20.

On board the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, which is currently deployed in the Atlantic as part of the Foch mission, about forty sailors [...] exhibit symptoms consistent with a possible COVID-19 infection

- explains the Ministry of Defense.

The French military sent a group of doctors with specialized equipment to the ship, which should begin a check of the crew.

Persons with coronavirus symptoms were placed in isolation. The ship has a hospital for a dozen patients, a medical team of 20 people works, which includes doctors, including surgeons, and nurses. Other sailors clean the common areas twice a day. There were limits on the number of crew members gathering at the same time in certain places.

      They call at the ports, receive food, carry out a crew shift as necessary, conduct joint exercises, and that's it.

          On the American aircraft carrier, the virus was detected in flight crews, and it just conducts a constant rotation.

            SR: Well, if you met, then it must be noted!
            Noted ...
            We talked. We drank more ...
            AR: Well, I flew on, the task must be completed ...
            SR: And for the road ?!
            AR: Okay, come on!
            We drank ...
            AR: Something is not good for me ... I’d better return home
            SR: I spend !!!

              A very young French woman timidly enters the perfume shop.
              Asks the saleswoman to recommend good perfumes.
              The luxurious girl behind the counter begins to show an assortment:
              - This is "Embrace" ... This is "The Secrets of the Night" ... But this is "Ecstasy" ...
              - Tell me, is there anything for beginners? )))

          De Gaulle's sputum
          the French brought to Toulon.
          The Chinese are unlikely to infect

    Another "Flying Dutchman", after the American.
    Mannered French sailors were scared of the virus. Measure the temperature, stick out the tongue in the infirmary ...
    But once this nation kept in fear the whole of Europe ... wink

    The wording "against the background" is not entirely clear. The American sailors fell ill and the French fell ill against them? Or "twin cities on NATO" visited the same brothels along the route?

      The Americans used the French aircraft carrier as a brothel, and so, "in the background" everyone got sick.

    On the flight deck of an aircraft carrier there is a lot of space for a campground. To infect all infectious, let the wind blow the ocean into the ocean. And there is no need to rush home, take a longer swim in warm latitudes.

          No way, naturally. I wrote my comment on the fact that it’s stupid to laugh at some small (or not very small) problems in the fleets of other countries, if we have a situation with this at least not better hi

            Honestly, a strange comparison initially. Did France have a period of perestroika and a decade of economic decline, a refusal to finance the armed forces and the navy? And given that Kuznetsov is 10 years older than the Frenchman, the comparison is clearly not in favor of the Frenchman.

    France's only aircraft carrier, Charles de Gaulle, is heading home due to fears that about 40 sailors on board might become infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus

    but other sources report as a fait accompli:
    According to French media, the French Navy’s only carrier aircraft R 91 Charles De Gaulle was sent to its base in Toulon on a campaign in the Atlantic Ocean after the discovery of the coronavirus COVID-19 in about 40 members of its crew (numbering 1760 people, including the number of air wing and group personnel management of 560 people). The Ministry of Armed Forces of France announced the recall of the ship to the base on April 8.
