NHK reported that the U.S. Navy announced that the nuclear carrier Theodore Roosevelt, which was hit by a major COVID-19 outbreak in March, left Guam on Thursday for the first time in two months and headed toward the Philippine Sea to conduct training. The network said that at one point there were no U.S. carriers that could be deployed in the Asia-Pacific region, adding that the U.S. Navy is rushing to restore its operational readiness. The network quoted Rear Adm. Baker, commander of Carrier Strike Group 9, as saying in a statement: “Getting Theodore Roosevelt and Carrier Air Wing 11 one step closer to returning to their mission in the Indo-Pacific is a great achievement for the crew.”
