Thirteen sailors aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt test positive for coronavirus for a SECOND time after previously recovering from outbreak aboard the sidelined aircraft carrier

Eight more sailors aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt became the victim of coronavirus, tallying up to 13 who have been tested positive for coronavirus while serving abroad the sidelined aircraft carrier.
All the sailors had previously tested positive for coronavirus, and they were kept at least two weeks of isolation before, and only allowed to go back in the ship when they were tested negative in a row, the tests separated by one-two days.

However, the outbreak of the coronavirus again is making people suspicious about the authenticity of the test. In some cases, it is believed that infection would be in the benign stage. Therefore it would had been failed to be detected by the test.

The second potential outbreak of the virus has occurred just after 2 months after about 1100 individuals were affected by this deadly virus. One crew member has even died. When it is time to ship, a very strict precaution and care is ensured by the crew member.

Wearing gloves and masks, the crew members only climb to sterile buses when they have tested negative for the virus in a row. They are strictly screened and checked when they get on the bus and again when they board on the ship.
Those who had stayed in the ship did a deep cleaning four times a day-ensuring no virus is around their proximity.

The first outbreak cost Capt Brett Crozier to lose his job as he wrote the letter on April 2 to his superiors, urging them to respond more quickly to the coronavirus outbreak onboard the aircraft carrier leaked to the press at the end of March.
