13 USS Roosevelt Sailors Test Positive For COVID-19, Again

by Sarah McCammon/NPR

The U.S. Navy says 13 sailors from the USS Theodore Roosevelt who had apparently recovered from the coronavirus and had received negative test results have now tested positive for a second time.

In a statement released earlier on Saturday when five sailors were found to have retested positive, the Navy said the sailors had “met rigorous recovery criteria, exceeding CDC guidelines,” including testing negative for the virus at least twice, but have now retested positive. The statement said the sailors had been monitoring their health and adhered to social-distancing protocols while on board the Roosevelt, which has been docked in Guam following an outbreak infecting hundreds of crew members.



“These five Sailors developed influenza-like illness symptoms and did the right thing reporting to medical for evaluation,” the statement said.

The Navy has since confirmed to NPR that an additional eight sailors have retested positive for coronavirus, bringing the total to 13.

  1. Bernie, Very good point you make. I am not sure about the second test being positive….did they use a different type of test, who read the first and second tests and yes, were they tested after the first positive and was there a negative test then? Not sure any of this is a clear picture about what is going on with these USS Roosevelt cases. Looking at what is happening so far with the vaccine, there are clear results where monkeys have not gotten COVID-19 after being vaccinated. None of these vaccines are at the end of their research status.
