Onboard the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" recorded a new outbreak of coronavirus

A new outbreak of coronavirus infection has been recorded on board the USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71 US nuclear carrier. Part of the team was again evacuated from the ship, according to the Navy command.


Repeated testing for coronavirus among sailors who previously showed a negative test result revealed a disease in five crew members of the aircraft carrier who were allowed to return aboard the ship. All five with the symptoms of the disease, as well as another 18 sailors in contact with the infected, were immediately removed from the aircraft carrier and sent for treatment and quarantine.

As the official representative of the US Navy, Captain Myers Vazquez, all patients had previously undergone a coronavirus test and showed a negative result, they had no signs of infection.

According to official data released by the US Navy, during the outbreak of the coronavirus on board the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt in late March 2020, a total of 1155 sailors out of 4,8 thousand crew members were infected. On April 23, it became known that 100% of the crew passed tests for coronavirus.

Today, "Theodore Roosevelt" continues to be located at the naval base of the island of Guam. Most of the team, which showed a negative result for infection, returned to the ship and it was among them that new infected were found. Currently, disinfection of the aircraft carrier continues, about 92% of the ship has already been processed.

Note that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71 ("Theodore Roosevelt") was the first ship from the US Navy with a massive crew disease coronavirus. Despite the outbreak, the Navy command left the aircraft carrier on "alert duty".

    Maybe it's not so simple this "miracle miracle" (according to Malysheva) coronavirus? Maybe, how did Koch's wand learn to "doze" in the body until the right time, and then fire again?

      Coronavirus test scores depend on the number of viruses that enter the body and the error of the tests themselves.
      And immunity does not last forever due to MUTATIONS of the coronavirus itself.

      It’s like in a clinic. He came to be discharged from one SARS and became infected in line with another SARS. Something like this.

        Hush, hush about test errors !!!)
        I have a second remark for doubts about them, although I presented the sources!))) laughing

          Well, errors in any medical tests are always there.
          Ha! Even for pregnancy! lol
          This is a completely normal trivial phenomenon. yes
          The only question is - at what percentage is the error of tests from different manufacturers allowed?

            I provided material (an interview with the new newspaper of the former deputy of the Botkin Hospital) that domestic ones are incorrect in ... I will not give you a number) I was accused of the source’s doubtfulness))
            Although when the authors retell outright gossip, it seems like nothing ... request

      Well no. It's all about “Theodore Roosevelt.” Immediately it was necessary to flood)))

    tests should be done regularly .von and Lukashenko before going to the parade said that the topic of tests is relevant. some are worse, others are better. one may not notice the infected and show negatively, while others vice versa. as one friend from Florida told me, her daughter was infected, but the symptoms are not at all, the cough is there and the temperature .. I asked her then, but the test is not Chinese? and then the symptoms are not the same, but the test showed positively ... in short, yes, yes ... they took her to the hospital, brought her back three days later. the pier turned out to be not quite right. neither pneumonia nor cough nor fever. what kind of virus is not clear.

      Your affairs are wonderful ....
      - Do you see the virus?
      - No...
      - And he is! fellow

    A terrible thing, biological weapons ... This is so, for the future ... but not to burn all these Amerovskie laboratories around Russia with "thermobaric" ones? Especially in Ukraine and Georgia. Well, kind of by accident ... What are they doing outside of Fashingtonia?

      To begin with, it is better to start with Ostankino ... Because they are spreading this nonsense, and many believe.

    Today, the main method is to determine the genetic material of the virus. I think that the method (which was used in the days of the USSR, and generally accepted in those days) for testing samples taken from the human respiratory tract (nasopharyngeal swab or sputum sample) is more reliable. True time analysis takes from several hours to two days.

      The most reliable method is polymerase chain reaction, although it depends on the quality of the primers. But it takes several hours.
      Rapid tests are based on the determination of antibodies in the blood by chromatographic method. But its reliability can swim in a very wide range.

        A "chain reaction" can detect a virus, but it is not a fact that it will be a coronavirus.
        The article cited proves the ineffectiveness of the method, possibly due to mutations. And the "microscope" cannot be fooled.

          Not only this particular coronavirus, but also different strains of the same. It is enough to decipher the virus genome and set up the production of specific primers for PCR.
          And the "microscope" is easy to deceive, because a mutation that is critically important in terms of pathogenicity may not affect the appearance of the protein envelope of the virus, the so-called. capsid.

    I think this aircraft carrier can no longer be operated. To be disposed of. Or it can be presented to Ukraine.

    This ship becomes as "famous" as "Donald Cook" and it is precisely the incidents on board and with them in general. Lately, the media probably haven't written as often about other ships as about these. It remains to assign additional honorary names to the ships and reward the crew.

    Since the virus is not seen in pronounced Russophobia, anti-Semitism, Turkomania or Anglophilia, it mows smart and stupid, lop-eared and long-nosed, like redheads with brunettes, as well as John and Sing along with Mustafs and Abrashi, clearly distinguishing only old people, I dare to suggest that something similar, plus or minus ten percent maximum, is happening in all the armies and fleets of the world. Except, of course, some completely isolated garrisons or submarines that have not visited bases for more than the last six months (theoretically). It’s just that some of them declare it openly, while others strictly guard the secrets of the open door.
    For example, I am more worried about not the hefty foreheads - the sailors of the aircraft carrier, but the kids - the pupils of the Tver Suvorov and Nakhimov naval schools, who caught the infection at the Alabino training ground in the Moscow region during the rehearsals for the Victory parade.
