The United States announced the concealment of the Navy of the scale of the problem on the aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt"

15

In the US, they say that the Navy command hid the real extent of the problems on the Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier.


Recall that some time ago this American aircraft carrier was urgently sent to one of the US military bases (Apra Harbor) on the island of Guam after detecting an outbreak of coronavirus on board it. At first, about 550 sick people were reported, then about 1,2 thousand infected crew members were announced. While the warship was being disinfected in Guam, the commander managed to change it (in American terminology - the captain). The former was removed from his post because he spoke about the crew’s problems through the press. After the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt was again sent on a sea voyage - towards the Philippine archipelago.

Now the US Navy reports that 60% of the aircraft carrier’s crew detected antibodies to COVID-19. This gave reason to say that infection did not cover “up to 25% of the crew”, as previously reported, but much more. Considering that at the time of arrival in Guam there were about 4,5 thousand people aboard Theodore Roosevelt, the total number of infected people should correspond to at least 2,7 thousand.

A few days ago, the following was posted on the aircraft carrier’s Facebook page:

Thank you, Guam, thanks to everyone who helped us get back to our mission.

Recall that the American aircraft carrier on a new sea voyage was sent under the command of a new captain.

    Do not die, okay.
    thanks to everyone who helped us get back to our mission.
    As already zadolbalo this word - "mission". I want to understand everything, but what is the mission of the United States and, in particular, their military, and who endowed them with this "mission"? Bringing "democracy" with bayonets, systematically destroying the civilian population in unwanted countries, rattling arms around the world, running quickly when they give a sensitive surrender ... what exactly is the mission of an aircraft carrier that is floating around the seas?

      So this is from time immemorial, even Karl planted Christianity with fire and sword, then the Spaniards with the Portuguese, then the British, now it has come to these to bring democracy.

        I’ll supplement it, but the Crusades sent children in general.

      It's very simple, to understand you need to read history. I had little understanding of the psychology and history of Americans and often marveled at their "stupidity." And then he took up books, Jefferson and Washington, and gradually began to understand amers.

      Everything goes to the "clean" Cromuel, who were the first to stay in the colonies. Towards the construction of a "bright city on a hill" and the most just state in the world. To Protestant ethics, which dictates that one must constantly work and not use / brag about the fruits of labor.

      Who endowed them with this mission ... yes elementary - the Lord God :)

      That’s something, in short. But Jefferson's reading is useful and informative.

        Thanks for the advice. But I asked an exclusively rhetorical question, because I perfectly understand what and who (in their opinion). And aware of Protestant ethics. I live a long time and, besides, I do not suffer from a lack of knowledge.

          Sorry, I didn’t understand right away. I myself opened this topic somewhere two years ago. He was completely ignorant in American history and psychology.

    An aircraft carrier, de facto, is a congestion of people in a closed container. Closed, in the sense that there is nowhere to go. It is impossible to provide "social distance" for the crew with any forces there. It is not surprising that under these conditions there is a massive spread of a viral disease.
    Moreover, almost the same thing happens in similar groups around the world. It's just that we hear about some every day, but not about others. That's all. hi

      It certainly is yes

        So, who’s wrong, who knows?
        If my sclerosis does not fail me, there are 9 (nine!) More exactly the same aircraft carriers from the Nimitz series afloat. So, if one yardstick is a little sick, the rest of the yardsticks will somehow cope. Moreover, in this difficult task they will definitely be helped by another 22 Ticonderoga-class cruisers and 67 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers. laughing
        By the way, I received today a fresh "Information Bulletin of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on Preventing the Spread of a New Coronavirus Infection (as of June 8, 2020)". I highly recommend it. Interesting reading, you know.hi

    You need to kneel in front of the aircraft carrier and eat a banana .. And everything will be fine.
