Three US sailors have been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus from the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt. The first cases reported on a US Navy ship currently on deployment, officials said.

According to international media the Acting Navy Secretary Thomas B. Modly has said that the three have been evacuated and all those they had come into contact with on the vessel, which has more than 5,000 personnel on board, have been quarantined.

Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mike Gilday said that the ship was last in port in Vietnam 15 days ago but it was difficult to connect the cases to a particular port visit.
