Follow here for live updatesUS aircraft carrier now has 25 confirmed cases of coronavirus From CNN's Barbara Starr, Ryan Browne and Michael Conte Shutterstock There are now 25 sailors who have tested positive for coronavirus aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, a Navy official has confirmed to CNN. The Navy says they expect there to be additional positive tests among the crew, with one official telling CNN there could possibly be “dozens” of new cases that emerge. A second official said if there is a large number of additional cases, the Defense Department would be unlikely to publicly specify how many of the Navy’s overall cases are members of the crew, out of concerns that adversaries China or North Korea could see the ship as vulnerable. Despite the outbreak, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday said in a statement,"We are confident that our aggressive response will keep USS Theodore Roosevelt able to respond to any crisis in the region." Earlier in the day, acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly had said there were"several" more cases onboard the ship, but did not give a specific number. "We are in the process now of testing 100% of the crew of that ship to ensure that we're able to contain whatever spread might've occurred," Modly told reporters at the Pentagon at a briefing Thursday morning. There are approximately 5,000 personnel onboard the carrier. Some context: The Roosevelt is in the process of pulling into Guam, according to Modly."No one on the crew will be allowed to leave anywhere into Guam, other than on pier side," he said. The ship was last in port in Vietnam more than two weeks ago. It is not clear where the sailors initially contracted the virus. The Navy is now in the process of flying all personnel off the ship. share with Facebook Read more: CNN
