Paris, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th Apr, 2020 ) :The French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle has registered 50 cases of novel coronavirus among the crew, the armed forces ministry said Friday.
However, none of the crew who tested positive for COVID-19 and remained on board have suffered "worsening health" so far, the ministry added in a statement.
The origin of the virus was not yet known but all crew were now wearing face masks.
Those with symptoms had been placed in isolation, but none had signs of serious illness, it said.
The ship, which can transport about 2,000 sailors, had been preparing to return to the Mediterranean.
Modly had removed the ship's captain, Brett Crozier, for writing a letter -- leaked to the media -- complaining of an uncontrolled virus outbreak among the Roosevelt's 4,800 crew and alleging the Pentagon was not paying adequate attention to it.
The Roosevelt has been docked for 11 days in Guam so the crew, with well over 100 confirmed coronavirus cases, can be tested and the vessel cleaned.
