Exclusive: Captain of aircraft carrier with growing coronavirus outbreak pleads for help from Navy | San Francisco Chronicle

A nuclear aircraft carrier currently has over 100 infected soldiers on board. The captain is now begging the Navy to send in more supplies and resources as more soldiers have become sick. He is also asking that the crew members be allowed on dry land and go into isolation, since quarantine and isolation methods on the carrier are almost impossible to implement. “We are not at war. Sailors do not need to die. If we do not act now, we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset — our Sailors,” commented Capt. Brett Crozier. He noted in the letter that over 4,000 crew members were trapped on the ship and unable to take any true measures to avoid catching the virus.
