US Navy Special Operations Forces confirms first case of new crown virus! The most terrible thing is that the suspected found on the nuclear submarine
U.S. military official confirmed that a COVID-19 (New Crown Virus) test of a second-tier non-commissioned officer of the US Navy Special Operations Forces was positive! This is the first confirmed case of the U.S. Navy Special Forces, and it is very special or terrible, this case was found on a “warship” of the USS Kitsap-Bangor base of! The U.S. military did not say what type of “warship” the case was found on.
Military observers point out that because the U.S. Navy special forces mainly perform highly classified underwater special combat missions, in actual operations, more U.S. nuclear submarines are used to carry out secret operations. The Kitsap Bangor Naval Base is also the home port of some US nuclear submarines. The discovery of new crown virus cases on the “warships” has to be full of imagination.
Even when the US “Military Times” website reported the news, it was even accompanied by a photo of the Ohio-class strategic nuclear submarine returning to its home port, Kittsap-Bangor Naval Base. Perhaps even the American media believe that the confirmed case of this new crown virus is likely to appear on US military (strategic) nuclear submarines. If this is true, considering the total enclosed space inside the submarine, the damage and negative impact of the new crown virus epidemic on the overall combat effectiveness of the US military may be far beyond the imagination of the outside world.

We work closely with local agencies, resident command and public health authorities to ensure the well-being of our personnel and local communities. ”
The Military Times said that since the outbreak of the new crown virus, more than 50 U.S. military personnel and thousands of Americans have been infected as of March 18. At present, 40% of the US military hospitalized patients are between 20 and 54 years old, covering almost all ages of US military personnel.
According to an Interfax news agency report on March 21, Todd Walters, commander of the US European Command, said that at least 35 of the approximately 72,000 U.S. military personnel in Europe are currently diagnosed with the new COVID-19 crown. virus.
New crown virus sets new setback for US military global operations! 2500 “shelving” soldiers stationed in Australia The
day before yesterday (March 19), we reported that the 2,500 US Marines who were about to be deployed to Australia in rotation would need to be quarantined in the barracks for 14 days. The latest news now shows that due to the new crown virus epidemic, the rotation deployment of the U.S. military has been temporarily “held” and postponed until a “final decision” is reached.
According to the US media, this is the latest setback that COVID-19 (New Crown Virus) has caused the US military to prepare and operate globally.
Military observers point out that due to the rotation deployment, the U.S. military must not only consider the isolation and personnel health of the new Marines stationed in Australia, but also consider the withdrawal of approximately 2,500 Marines from Australia to isolate them and ensure the health and safety of personnel. .
According to the latest news released by the US Marine Corps Times on March 21st local time, according to a press release from the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Regiment of the US Marine Corps, the Department is awaiting deployment to Australia, but before the “final decision” , They will stay at the current station (Okinawa, Japan).

“Australia and the United States are still committed to deployment, but it takes time to make such a large-scale decision,” said Goodler, head of the 7th Regiment of the United States Marine Corps. The battalion (3rd battalion) will continue to prepare and move towards The initial deployment schedule worked hard to “be beautifully executed” after a decision was made.
Goodler watch seems that due to the current (outbreak) restrictions, the 3rd Battalion cannot “effectively take a vacation” because they have nowhere to go. The battalion is currently transitioning to an “easy fighting rhythm”, with only two to three hours of training activities per day.
It is reported that Australia is a key ally of the US Marine Corps’ redeployment plan in the Pacific region in response to China. It is expected that about 2,500 U.S. Marines will come to Australia for a six-month rotation deployment this year, which is about the same size as last year.
The first batch (ie, 3rd Battalion) was originally scheduled to enter Australia in April, and follow-up troops arrived in the summer. However, the rapid spread of the COVID-19 (New Crown Virus) epidemic has led to the delay in the deployment of Australian operations.
