The Pentagon wants to test random units for the coronavirus | Stars & Stripes

While the U.S. will not have enough coronavirus testing kits to assess the entire military any time soon, Pentagon officials want to test several random units. The goal is to discover how many people within the ranks test positive but are asymptomatic. Defense Secretary Mark Esper has commented that despite dealing with the coronavirus for over two months, we still have very little information on how it is impacting the military. Currently 4,967 troops have tested positive and two of them have died from the virus. The Defense Department has been placing troops and units in a tier format to determine who should be tested first based on readiness.
