In total, 59 members of the Defense Department community had confirmed cases of the fast-spreading coronavirus, formally known as COVID-19, said Army Lt. Col. Chris Mitchell, a Pentagon spokesman. Eight DOD civilians, 12 military dependents, three defense contractors and the 36 service members have the virus, he said, noting the numbers were current as of early Tuesday. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/coronavirus-cases-among-us-troops-double-in-one-day-pentagon-prepares-hospital-ships-for-response-1.622737
