The country’s top military officer, Mark Millie, became alarmed after a US Coast Guard officer discovered coronovirus. As soon as he came in contact with the affected Coast Guard officer, he went into quarantine. Mark Milli is the current chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff. An AFP report quoted military sources as saying.
The affected Coast Guard officer is Admiral Charles Ray. He is serving as the Vice Commandant of the force.
The Pentagon says many senior US military officers are currently in voluntary quarantine. He went into isolation after coming in contact with Admiral Charles Ray in a meeting. After that meeting, Charles Ray was diagnosed with coronovirus. Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman confirmed the case on Tuesday.
Jonathan Hoffman said that the Pentagon is aware that Coronovirus of Vice Commandant Charles Ray has been identified. Last week, he attended a meeting with other senior military officers. Several other army chiefs were also present at the meeting.
In last week’s meeting, participants have already tested the corona. Although it was not found in their bodies, they are currently in quarantine as part of all additional precautions.
It was not immediately clear how or by whom Charles Ray contracted the virus. However, about 10 days ago, he attended a ceremony at the White House. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Source: TRT World
