Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Nearly 3,000 American service members worldwide had tested positive for the coronavirus by Friday, according to new Pentagon data that showed military-affiliated individuals infected by the virus nearing 5,000.

The data released Thursday showed more than 22% of the 2,986 service members diagnosed with the fast-spreading virus have recovered from the disease. Forty-four troops are now hospitalized by the virus, which has killed two service members, including 41-year-old Chief Petty Officer Charles Robert Thacker Jr., who died Monday in a Guam hospital after contracting the virus aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/dod-wide-coronavirus-cases-near-5-000-1.626457
