SAN DIEGO — So many sailors fell ill with COVID-19 on board the amphibious assault ship USS Essex during its recent stint at sea that the Navy had to send fresh troops to the ship to help man key watch stations, a member of the crew told The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Naval Surface Forces Pacific, headquartered in San Diego, declined to comment on how many sailors on board the Essex were affected by the outbreak but confirmed some of what the sailor, who asked to remain anonymous, told the newspaper.
