NHK, TBS and Jiji reported that according to reports by the British media, an outbreak of COVID-19 has been reported on the British aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, which is currently operating in the Indian Ocean as part of a global cruise. TBS reported that while the BBC reported that there have been around 100 cases on the aircraft carrier, the Telegraph reported that there have been about 100 cases among the four vessels, including the aircraft carrier, in the Carrier Strike Group. Defence Secretary Wallace reportedly said all sailors on the four vessels had received two doses of COVID-19 vaccine and the outbreak was being managed. The Japanese media outlets also highlighted the fact that the fleet had only just held joint drills with the MSDF in the Gulf of Aden off Somalia on Sunday and Monday and is scheduled to call at a Japanese port later this year.
