Navy Commander Fired By Trump For Protecting His Sailors Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Captain Brett E. Crozier, the Navy commander relieved of his duties by the Trump administration over a letter drawing attention to dangerous health conditions on his aircraft carrier has tested positive for COVID-19, The New York Times reported Sunday.

Crozier, who was removed from command of the coronavirus-stricken aircraft carrier U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt, “has tested positive for Covid-19, according to two Naval Academy classmates of Crozier’s who are close to him and his family,” The Times reports.

“The commander began exhibiting symptoms before he was removed from the warship on Thursday.”

As noted by The Times, “Crozier was fired following a leak to The San Francisco Chronicle of a letter he had emailed to Navy leaders that detailed the failures on the service’s part to provide the necessary resources to swiftly move sailors off the carrier and disinfect areas on board as the virus spread through the ship.”

The White House did not return a request for comment on the report.
