286 sailors from the US warship USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) have been infected with the coronavirus. The virus was recently detected in their bodies, according to CNN, citing the statement of the US Defense Department. 

The warship, which has been stationed in Guam in the Pacific, has been under discussion for some time. Captain Brett Crozier was recently sacked for allegedly spreading coronavirus on the battlefield and reporting that “the sailors were in danger”. 

More than 90 percent of the crew has been tested. 2,329 sailors have been evacuated and 1700 of them are staying at the hotel.
