Four sailors on the San-Diego based aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt are in the hospital with COVID-19, the Navy said Tuesday. One is in intensive care.

The hospital admissions come the day after a member of the crew died of complications of the virus after four days in the ICU. The Defense department has not released the name of the sailor.

The Navy also said Tuesday that 589 of the Roosevelt’s crew have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. More than 4,000 of the crew have moved moved off the ship into housing on Guam, either in private homes or hotels.

The San Diego-based carrier has a total crew of roughly 4,845 service members, including its embarked air wing and command staff.

1. But by all means ...

... let's fire the Captain who tried to save his crew.

Their blood is on Trump's hands.

3. So when does the investigation start?

Come on! This is bullshit. The captain was trying to save lives. I hope he sues the pants of the Navy. (I figure that's not possible).

That sailor that died, his family should sue. I'm so freaking mad about that whole ordeal.
