More US Navy ships report coronavirus outbreaks

There are now cases of coronavirus affecting US Navy ships beyond the USS Theodore Roosevelt. 

In addition to the Roosevelt, the USS Ronald Reagan — which is currently in Yokuska, Japan, in maintenance — has 15 positive cases. Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff John Hyten also said Thursday that there is a “small outbreak” of coronavirus on the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz.

“But it’s not a huge breakout, it’s not a big spike at this point. There’s been physical separation of sailors on that ship,” he said at a Pentagon briefing. Hyten said they are watching it “very closely before the Nimitz goes out.”
