US Navy Captain Fired For Sounding Alarm About Coronavirus On Aircraft Carrier

A new report revealed on Thursday that U.S. Navy Capt. Brett Crozier, who commands the USS Theodore Roosevelt, an aircraft carrier with a crew of nearly 5,000, was relieved of his command on Thursday after sounding the alarm about a COVID-19 outbreak aboard the Roosevelt.

NBC News reported that Crozier was relieved of his duties but was allowed to keep his rank and remain in the Navy.

Crozier was responsible for sounding the alarm that crew members of the Roosevelt were infected with the virus.

NBC News reported:

“Crozier sent a letter to the Navy on Monday begging for help addressing the coronavirus outbreak aboard his ship, which was forced to dock in Guam last week. The ship leadership began testing everyone on board. By Wednesday, there were 93 positive test results and more than 1,000 people had departed the ship into isolation on Guam. In total, 2,700 people are expected to disembark the ship this week, with a smaller crew remaining to maintain the ship.”

The move was announced in a briefing by Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly Thursday evening.
