USS Roosevelt Sailor Dies of Covid, Exposing the Empire’s Cruelty

by | Apr 15, 2020

On FPF #479, I discuss the first death of a US sailor from the USS Theodore Roosevelt of Covid-19. The story of the outbreak on the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier became a national story after a letter sent by the captain of the ship warned that his sailors would die for no reason of Covid-19. Captain Cozier’s warning coming true reveals that the country’s leadership doesn’t care about the troops. The empire further exposed by not seeing the situation on the Roosevelt as a possibility for other ships. The US continues to deploy ships, off Venezuela’s coast, or through the Taiwan Strait, on pointless missions that have nothing to do with national security.
