On April 2nd Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly announced that he was going to fire the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt. This came after Crozier had written a letter asking for help aboard his vessel and the coronavirus was sweeping through the sailors, who had very little ability to practice social distancing on the ship.
