More than Half the Navy's Coronavirus Cases Are on the Carrier Theodore Roosevelt

Nearly 300 sailors on the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt have tested positive for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, the Navy announced less than a week after that ship's commanding officer was removed from his job over the way he warned superiors about the health crisis.

As of Wednesday, 286 members of the Roosevelt's crew have COVID-19. That makes up more than half of the Navy's 548 COVID-19 cases in the ranks, the highest among the military branches.

The Navy's handling of the health situation on the carrier led to a week of chaos that ultimately unseated the service's top civilian leader, former Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly.
