Brett Crozier, who was fired in the wake of a critical letter about the corona, is reportedly even tested positive.
An american name, who was fired after having expressed concern over the spread of virus among its crew, is even tested positive for the coronavirus.
Captain Brett Croziers test result is published on Sunday by The New York Times, writes news agency AFP.
It happens a few hours after the US secretary of defense Mark Esper, defended the sacking of the captain.
Esper told the ABC that the acting secretary of the navy Thomas Modly has “taken a difficult decision” to deprive Brett Crozier responsibility for the virusramte aircraft carrier “USS Theodore Roosevelt”.

– This was the minister’s decision. He came and briefed me. It was up to the minister. I said that I would support the resolution.
