(Sandhya Jha, Intern Journalist): Washington, After being sidelined with an outbreak of the Coronavirus in Guam for two months, the USS Theodore Roosevelt ship Roosevelt has gone to sea for training, preparing to return to duty in the Pacific. The ship was intercepted in Guam from 27 March. Because more than 1000 crew members had received Coronavirus test positive. The 4,800 crew members were then quarantined. Carrier Strike Group 9 commander Rear Adam Stu Baker said in a statement that it feels great to be back at sea. About 11 steps away from returning to their mission in the Indo-Pacific is a major achievement for Theodore Roosevelt and crew for the Carrier Air Wing.
In an interview with the aircraft carrier earlier this week, Navy Captain Carlos Sardello said the ship would leave with a massive crew of about 3,000, leaving about 1,800 sailors still on the quarantine or working with them. Doing that in Quarantine.
