U.S. Navy Nuclear Aircraft Carrier Effectively Suspended due to Mass Infection May 22 to Return to Duty At 9:26
TheOdore Roosevelt, the U.S. Navy’s nuclear aircraft carrier that was effectively suspended due to a mass infection of the new coronavirus, has revealed plans to return to duty in the Pacific after completing the offshore training needed for redeployment in about two weeks.
After more than 1,100 crew members were confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus, Theodore Roosevelt, who was anchored in Guam, left Guam on Sunday for the first time in about a month to train offshore carriers needed to redeploy the aircraft carrier.
According to Hoffman, a Pentagon spokesman who met on Wednesday, the aircraft carrier plans to return to Guam after training in about a week, carry ing soldiers recovering from the new coronavirus, and then return to duty in the Pacific Ocean.
There are some views on Theodore Roosevelt’s return to duty, but hoffman said there would be no change in the mission at this time, and acknowledged that there would be no impact.
In the wake of the mass infection of Theodore Roosevelt, the Pentagon is rushing to rebuild the aircraft carrier’s readiness with the Chinese military in mind, as it has been temporarily absent from the Aircraft Carrier, which can be deployed immediately in the Asia-Pacific region.
