The u.s. navy maintains surprisingly a firing of captain Brett Crozier, who was exempted from service after having reported a coronaudbrud on board the aircraft carrier 'Theodore Roosevelt'.
he was, however, hailed as a hero by his crew and made a reinstatement in his post in view. Now restrained the firing.
It is a surprising reversal in the case, which comes after a detailed investigation of the circumstances of the smitteudbruddet with corona virus on board the ship.
Crozier showed questionable judgement in his handling of an outbreak of Covid-19 on board the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, says admiral Michael Gilday, as is the top-chief of naval operations.
the Admiral says that coronavirusset probably came on board the ship, as it lay in port in Vietnam.
the Navy is also expected to announce that a promotion of rear admiral Stuart Baker set, according to the circumstances of the case have been investigated.
Crozier is expected to remain in the fleet, although he has been relieved of his command on board the aircraft carrier.
the Navy has not disclosed the details of the conclusions of the study.
An investigation was carried out by the navy have previously shown that about 60 percent of the on-board crew members had antibodies. It means that far more than first thought were infected on board with the virus.
Crozier was removed as commander-in-chief, after he, in a letter had asked for more help to slow the virusudbruddet. He demanded that the many thousand seamen under his command were allowed to leave the ship in order to prevent the spread of infection.
He was hailed for this by its crew, and a previous study conducted by the fleet had put up that he should be reinstated as captain.
Subsequently said the now-resigned secretary of the navy Modly in a speech to the members of the crew on board the 'Theodore Roosevelt', to Crozier were either too 'naive or too stupid' to take responsibility for them.
at Least one american sailor died with the virus.
