Fired Navy Captain Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Navy Captain Brett Crozier was relieved of his duties on USS Theodore Roosevelt after reaching out for help about a coronavirus outbreak aboard.

Days later, Captain Crozier has tested positive for the Coronavirus. He began showing symptoms of the virus before being removed last Thursday, according to the NY Times.

Captain Crozier sent out a letter pleading to quarantine his crew and have the ship disinfected while they sat in Guam.

The letter became public after it was obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle.

The acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly stated that Captain Crozier was relieved because he lost confidence in the captain’s ability to command the ship.

“I think acting Secretary Modly made a very tough decision, a decision that I support. It was based on his view that he had lost faith and confidence in the captain based on his actions. It was supported by Navy leadership, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Sunday.

There were 155 sailors aboard the carrier that tested positive for the Coronavirus, and more than half had been tested.
