As the American destroyer USS Kidd heads home to Everett with nearly three dozen cases of COVID-19, relatives and friends of the 350 crew members prayed for their health while Navy officials vowed to keep the outbreak, the second to strike a Navy vessel at sea, from spreading.

On Saturday, the Navy reported that 33 sailors aboard the guided-missile destroyer had tested positive for COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, up from the 18 cases announced just 24 hours earlier, according the Navy’s COVID-19 news site.

The outbreak adds to the challenges for the Navy, which has the largest number of positive cases of all service branches, with some 1,500 as of Friday, according to media reports. On Thursday, The Hill reported that at least 26 other vessels have reported coronavirus infections, but all those ships are docked in port.

How long until we start to hear crowing from the White House that this is all part of a Chinese military operation to disable our naval fleet?

That or something kookier will be unsurprising.

He wants to bring troops home from Afghanistan because of an outbreak there.
And yet commencement at West Point must go on.
