Contracted while on shore in Japan?

Aircraft carrier is the most powerful ship made by humans but it is attacked seriously by 1 millionth size enemies. How ironically!

I thought the normal quarantine time was at least 14 days, not 48 hours?

Fox News said the number of infection cases aboard Theodore Roosevelt has surged to more than 30, compared with only three known cases three days 

30 in three days, diamond princess highest infection per day. Tokyo metropolis population 38 million, trains running packed, pachinko, shops, cinemas etc in operation total infection after 3months, not even up to 300 infections.

If one cannot figure out that something is terrible wrong with the numbers then they are in trance.

Best advice is stay home, self isolate, practice self distance, wash your hands and wipe down anything you touched. Yet I see people at the grocery store touching the checkout register card reader with no protection. Why aren't stores wiping them down after each person uses them. This is a total lack of common sense. Hope all our military teams will stay safe.

Likely to lock things immediately, and then use 48hrs to decide how to ride out the next 12+days of self isolation, which is likely difficult at military installations as not everyone gets a nice house to live in!

Most of the military personnel and SOFA are being required to quarantine for 14 days. The newly infected are new arrivals, but the military hospital had a corona virus patient on base almost a month ago.

The other bases are also taking precautionary measures starting this weekend in response.

USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Ronald Reagan are the only two US aircraft carriers in the Pacific; both have sailors who have tested positive to COVID-19.

It effectively gives China free hand in the region.
