U.S. aircraft carrier docked in Guam due to Corona Virus outbreak May 21, 14:21
The U.S. Navy has announced that the nuclear aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, which has a mass infection of the new coronavirus while operating in the Pacific Ocean, will begin training for the first time in two months for the redeployment. In the Asia-Pacific region, aircraft carriers that can be deployed immediately are virtually absent, and the Navy is in a hurry to rebuild its stance.
Theodore Roosevelt, the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, was anchored in Guam in March to isolate its crew members and disinfect the ship after a mass infection of the new coronavirus occurred while working in the Pacific Ocean.
The Navy issued a statement on this issue, revealing that Theodore Roosevelt had left Guam for the first time in two months and headed to the Philippine Sea to begin training offshore carrier-based aircraft needed to redeploy the aircraft carrier.
In the Asia-Pacific region, three ships, such as Ronald Reagan at yokosuka base, were in maintenance and training, so the aircraft carrier that could be deployed immediately was virtually absent at one point, commander Baker, who is in charge of the aircraft carrier, said in a statement, “It is a great achievement that the aircraft carrier is one step closer to its mission in the Indo-Pacific region.”
In the wake of this situation, the United States has also raised concerns about increased Chinese activity in the region and the decline in The American military’s influence, and the Navy is rushing to dispatch ships other than aircraft carriers and rebuild their postures.
