Arrow One-third of French aircraft carrier sailors test positive for COVID-19: ministry

One-third of French aircraft carrier sailors test positive for COVID-19: ministry
By: CGTN News - 04-16-20

France's Defense Ministry says 668 personnel aboard the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle have tested positive for COVID-19.

Among those who tested positive are two of four U.S. sailors on board.

A provisional assessment published on Wednesday by the ministry said "31 are today hospitalized at the Sainte-Anne army training hospital in Toulon, including one in intensive care."

France is one of the European countries most affected by COVID-19, having recorded more than 130,000 cases and over 17,000 deaths.


Personal note: This virus is really hitting the Naval guys pretty good. Not just our guys.
This stuff has to be airborne I presume they weren't in VN either. I hope we get a handle on this virus soon - this is one scary virus and its worldwide.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
