    U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers, Squadrons Producing Fabric Face Coverings to Safeguard Personnel https://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=112599
    Sailors aboard USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), USS George Washington (CVN 73), USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), and USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), led by aircrew survival equipmentman, have started to make fabric face coverings for their crews.
    Currently, Stennis is outputting 30 per day, with an expected increase to nearly 50 a day by next week.
    The USS John C. Stennis can up to 6500 officers and crew (with embarked airwing) on board.

    A sailor who tested positive for Covid-19 on the USS Theodore Roosevelt has died of coronavirus, the US Navy said Monday. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/13/politics/theodore-roosevelt-sailor-coronavirus/index.html The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the Roosevelt was at the center of a controversy that led to the resignation last week of acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly, who had dismissed the aircraft carrier’s captain Brett Crozier after the leak of a memo in which he implored Navy officials to urgently evacuate the ship to protect the health of its sailors. Crozier also flagged his concerns about challenges of trying to contain the virus aboard the ship and requested that sailors be allowed to quarantine on land. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/13/politics/theodore-roosevelt-sailor-coronavirus/index.html

    “How an outbreak on the USS Theodore Roosevelt became a defining moment for the U.S. military” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/how-an-outbreak-on-the-uss-roosevelt-became-a-defining-moment-for-the-us-military/2020/04/16/2735f85c-7f24-11ea-8de7-9fdff6d5d83e_story.html
    “Coronavirus clue? Most cases aboard U.S. aircraft carrier are symptom-free” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa-military-sympt/coronavirus-clue-most-cases-aboard-us-aircraft-carrier-are-symptom-free-idUSKCN21Y2GB
    The possibility that the coronavirus spreads in a mostly stealthy mode among a population of largely young, healthy people showing no symptoms could have major implications for U.S. policy-makers, who are considering how and when to reopen the economy.
    It also renews questions about the extent to which U.S. testing of just the people suspected of being infected is actually capturing the spread of the virus in the United States and around the world.
    Defense Secretary Mark Esper, speaking in a television interview on Thursday, said the number of asymptomatic cases from the carrier was “disconcerting.”
    “It has revealed a new dynamic of this virus: that it can be carried by normal, healthy people who have no idea whatsoever that they are carrying it,” Esper told NBC’s “Today” morning show.
