The aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt turned into a powder keg. At anchor on the island of Guam (United States), in the Pacific, it is occupied by 4,000 sailors, 200 of whom have already been declared positive for Covid-19. The captain, who turned to return to the base, announced that the contagion was growing very quickly.
“We are not at war. There is no reason for sailors to die “, wrote Major Brett Crozier to his staff. The sailors' families are worried, but the Pentagon has not accepted the request to dock and the sailors are trapped on board the aircraft carrier. “We sent them food and medical supplies ”, tries to temper Mark Esper, the American Minister of Defense.
