美軍羅斯福號航空母艦因靠港越南爆發數百人染新冠疫情,艦長克羅西爾上校靠港前諮詢過越南政府並得到越南境內只16人感染且越南全境沒有新增病例的說法,但仍爆發「艦上感染」!對比臺灣仍有找不出源頭的境內感染,政府說的話及他們的判斷真能相信嗎?就像陳時中對待世界最大covid-19疫情國「美國」的「善意」,也就是不對美國入境者隔離的政策,讓臺灣從美國境外移入的人數遙遙領先,搞的臺灣確診新冠肺炎一下子由五十人迅速增至三百多人,死亡人數上升至五例…

正如聯合報社論的批評:「再談柯文哲的批評。他的抱怨其實可以分成兩部分:其一,現在「紐約比武漢危險」是事實,但我對紐約入境者的管制卻比湖北返國者寬鬆;前者只需居家檢疫,後者卻需集中隔離,這是雙重標準。

這讓我想起一本書:通往地獄的道路是善意鋪成的!

蔡英文與陳時中對美國人比對武漢台胞好的結果,導致臺灣確診數大爆炸!

這也就導致了臺灣明明宣稱「沒有社區感染」,但找不到源頭的感染就是找不到,而且「社交距離準則」、「搭大眾運輸強制戴口罩量體溫」等規定紛紛出爐!

這不是山雨欲來的前兆?這像是完全控制住疫情的樣子嗎?

如果已經社區感染卻不宣布,不是讓大家喪失戒心?

也因此,中央流行疫情指揮中心召集人張上淳的醫生兒選擇看NBA「及時行樂」,他的真心話「無助的老人想要阻擋疫情蔓延,但這是無效的,因為科學與政治無法併存」難道不值得我們省思?

為了彌平越戰傷痕的親善之旅,相信越南政府的美國大兵,終於上了代價高昂的一堂課,我們現在要強制戴口罩,則是蔡英文與陳時中太相信美國給我們的「報應」!

Coronavirus-stricken aircraft carrier  Captain gets Navy’s help after plea - SFChronicle.com.html  
Matthias Gafni and Joe Garofoli Mar 31, 2020 Updated: Mar 31, 2020 10:07 p.m.
The U.S. Navy took action Tuesday to address the deteriorating situation aboard a nuclear aircraft carrier docked in Guam with coronavirus spreading aboard, promising to isolate crew members ashore for rotating quarantine and possibly move many into hotels within 24 hours.
Crew members speaking to The Chronicle praised their outspoken commanding officer, who aired the dire situation in a stark letter Monday addressed to Navy command and first reported Tuesday by The Chronicle. They reiterated his concerns that it is impossible to properly quarantine sailors on board the Theodore Roosevelt and stop the spread of COVID-19. A senior officer told The Chronicle more than 100 sailors had tested positive in less than a week.


Exclusive  Captain of aircraft carrier with growing coronavirus outbreak pleads for help from Navy - SFChronicle.com.html

Matthias Gafni and Joe Garofoli March 31, 2020 Updated: March 31, 2020 4:36 p.m.

Note: This story has been updated with comments from the U.S. Navy and other developments.

The captain of a nuclear aircraft carrier with more than 100 sailors infected with the coronavirus pleaded Monday with U.S. Navy officials for resources to allow isolation of his entire crew and avoid possible deaths in a situation he described as quickly deteriorating.

The unusual plea from Capt. Brett Crozier, a Santa Rosa native, came in a letter obtained exclusively by The Chronicle and confirmed by a senior officer on board the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, which has been docked in Guam following a COVID-19 outbreak among the crew of more than 4,000 less than a week ago.

“This will require a political solution but it is the right thing to do,” Crozier wrote. “We are not at war. Sailors do not need to die. If we do not act now, we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset — our Sailors.”

In the four-page letter to senior military officials, Crozier said only a small contingent of infected sailors have been off-boarded. Most of the crew remain aboard the ship, where following official guidelines for 14-day quarantines and social distancing is impossible.

“Due to a warship’s inherent limitations of space, we are not doing this,” Crozier wrote. “The spread of the disease is ongoing and accelerating.”

He asked for “compliant quarantine rooms” on shore in Guam for his entire crew “as soon as possible.”

“Removing the majority of personnel from a deployed U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier and isolating them for two weeks may seem like an extraordinary measure. ... This is a necessary risk,” Crozier wrote. “Keeping over 4,000 young men and women on board the TR is an unnecessary risk and breaks faith with those Sailors entrusted to our care.”

The Navy did not respond to The Chronicle’s requests for comment Monday, but on Tuesday morning as the news spread, the Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly spoke to CNN.

“I heard about the letter from Capt. Crozier (Tuesday) morning, I know that our command organization has been aware of this for about 24 hours and we have been working actually the last seven days to move those sailors off the ship and get them into accommodations in Guam. The problem is that Guam doesn’t have enough beds right now and we’re having to talk to the government there to see if we can get some hotel space, create tent-type facilities,” Modly said.

“We don’t disagree with the (captain) on that ship and we’re doing it in a very methodical way because it’s not the same as a cruise ship, that ship has armaments on it, it has aircraft on it, we have to be able to fight fires if there are fires on board the ship, we have to run a nuclear power plant, so there’s a lot of things that we have to do on that ship that make it a little bit different and unique but we’re managing it and we’re working through it,” he said.

“We’re very engaged in this, we’re very concerned about it and we’re taking all the appropriate steps,” Modly said.

So far, none of the infected sailors has shown serious symptoms, but the number of those who have tested positive has jumped exponentially since the Navy reported infections in three crew members on March 24, the first time COVID-19 infections had been detected on a naval vessel at sea.

Asked Tuesday what should be done about the Roosevelt, President Trump said he would “let the military make that decision.”

Retired Admiral James Stavridis, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, told The Chronicle Tuesday in an e-mail that “we should expect more such incidents because warships are a perfect breeding ground for coronavirus.”

“Unfortunately, naval vessels are ideal breeding grounds for the spread of viruses because it is impossible to do social distancing on one” because of the tight quarters on board, Stavridis said.

The ship’s problems will “compound,” Stavridis said, because you can’t tie the vessel up “and send everyone ashore. It is full of weapons, billions of dollars of equipment, fire hazards, and nuclear reactors.”
Inside the Newsroom

Anonymous sources: The Chronicle strives to attribute all information we report to credible, reliable, identifiable sources. Presenting information from an anonymous source occurs extremely rarely, and only when that information is considered crucially important and all other on-the-record options have been exhausted. In such cases, The Chronicle has complete knowledge of the unnamed person’s identity and of how that person is in position to know the information. The Chronicle’s detailed policy governing the use of such sources, including the use of pseudonyms, is available on sfchronicle.com.

Mark Cancian, a Marine colonel who served for 37 years before retiring, said that “the Navy has got to figure out how to do this right or else they can’t deploy the rest of the fleet.

“This is like the test case,” said Cancian, a senior adviser with the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank in Washington, D.C.

Stavridis advised the “entire U.S. Navy” to “test, test, test,” and immediately isolate those infected off of ships.

Scrubbing the Theodore Roosevelt of the virus will not be complicated, but “time-consuming,” he said. He estimated cleaning would take five to 10 days with a crew of 350 people.

Senior military officials said last week that the entire crew of more than 4,000 will be tested. The carrier’s home port is San Diego.

At the time, Modly expressed confidence that they identified all the sailors who had been in contact with the trio of infected sailors and they had been quarantined.

“This is an example of how we are able to keep our ships deployed at seas and underway, even with active COVID-19 cases,” Modly said.

But by the time the ship reached port in Guam on Friday, the number of cases had grown to 25, and soon after to 36, according to reports.

Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Mike Gilday responded to the increasing numbers late last week by saying the Navy was taking “this threat very seriously” and working to isolate positive cases to halt the spread. He promised to increase the rate of testing and to isolate infected sailors. He stressed that the top two priorities were caring for their sailors and maintaining “mission readiness.”

“We are confident that our aggressive response will keep U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt able to respond to any crisis in the region,” Gilday said.

But by Monday, a senior officer on board the massive aircraft carrier, who wished to remain anonymous because they are not authorized to speak to the media, said between 150 and 200 sailors had tested positive. None had been hospitalized — yet, the source said. The Chronicle agreed to withhold the officer’s name based on its anonymous sources policy.

In his letter to top Navy command, Crozier said if it was operating in wartime, the ship would cope and continue operations and battle the illness as best it could.

“However, we are not at war, and therefore cannot allow a single Sailor to perish as a result of this pandemic unnecessarily,” Crozier wrote. “Decisive action is required now in order to comply with CDC and (Navy) guidance and prevent tragic outcomes.”

Lawrence Korb, a former assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan Administration, said that “it is very unusual” for a ship captain — someone who is typically on a career track to become an admiral — to write such a letter.

“It shows that this is a person who is putting the welfare of his sailors ahead of his career,” said Korb, a retired Navy captain who is now a senior fellow at the left-leaning Center for American Progress think tank.

Gilday told reporters last week it was unclear if sailors became infected following the ship’s previous port of call in early March to Da Nang, Vietnam. Gilday said they debated whether to go on with the Vietnam visit, but at the time there were only 16 coronavirus cases in northern Vietnam and the port was in the central part of the country.

Sailors were screened prior to returning on board. The first three sailors tested positive 15 days after leaving Vietnam, officials said.

The virus has been hard to contain on board ever since. Federal and military guidelines recommend individual quarantine, including no use of common areas.

“Due to the close quarters required on a warship and the current number of positive cases, every single Sailor, regardless of rank, on board the TR must be considered ‘close contact,’” Crozier wrote.

The tight quarters on the carrier are “most conducive to spread,” he wrote, including large amounts of sailors in a confined space, shared sleeping quarters, restrooms, workspaces and computers, a common mess hall, meals cooked by exposed personnel, and movement constraints requiring communal contact with ladders and hatches.

He called the current strategy followed so far — of moving a small infected group onto the pier, increasing cleaning and attempts at social distancing ineffective.

“The current strategy will only slow the spread,” he wrote. “The current plan in execution on TR will not achieve virus eradication on any timeline.”

The captain compared the situation to the Diamond Princess cruise ship, citing a study that focused on what could have happened to that cruise ship had no isolation been done. A total of 712 passengers eventually tested positive for COVID-19 from that cruise departing from Japan; however, the study found if there had been no early isolation close to 80% of passengers and crew would have been infected. And had the cruise line immediately evacuated the ship after the first positive tests, the study found only 76 people would have tested positive.

Crozier said the Theodore Roosevelt could fare even worse, as a warship is not designed to provide such individual isolation like guest cabins.

“TR’s best-case results, given the current environment, are likely to be much worse,” he wrote.

As for the senior military officials’ promising tests for all crew aboard the carrier last week, Crozier said it is not a solution.

“Testing has no direct influence on the spread of the COVID-19 virus. It merely confirms the presence of the virus,” he wrote.

Of the first 33 Roosevelt sailors testing positive, seven, or 21%, originally tested negative. After testing negative, those seven sailors presented symptoms within 1 to 3 days after their initial negative test, Crozier said.

The testing should be utilized, the captain wrote, after a proper 14-day quarantine to ensure no infected sailors return on board a clean ship.

Only one of the pier-side accommodations meet Navy guidelines, he wrote, adding that two sailors tested positive after sleeping in a gym with cots.

If the Navy focuses on being battle ready, it will lead to “losses to the virus,” Crozier said. The second option, the captain recommended: “Achieve a COVID-free TR.” Methodically clean the ship, while isolating the crew in port with a massive amount of individualized lodging equipment.

As part of his plan, 10% of the crew would stay on board to run the reactor plant, sanitize the ship, ensure security and provide contingency response for emergencies.

“As war is not imminent,” Crozier wrote, “we recommend pursuing the peace time end state.”

聯合報社論/當傳染源是家人:居家檢疫的戰略錯誤

中央疫情指揮中心最近有兩項決策引發爭議。一是對觀光局員工因接待長官之子而確診進而感染其五歲兒,刻意輕描淡寫粉飾;二是對湖北及歐美返國民眾採取截然不同的隔離處置,台北市長柯文哲表示不滿,並要求「不要一直放人進來」。當指揮中心處理疫情出現了雙重標準,除導致民眾困惑,更容易造成國家防疫網的破漏,不容含糊以對。

先談觀光局員工(案二六九)的感染事件。那位「長官之子」(案二七七)在菲律賓已有發燒住院三天的就醫紀錄,入關時我海關並未檢測出來,他亦或未誠實申報;因此長驅直入,不僅讓觀光局人員陪他喝咖啡,也讓父親開車來接。這些作法,都違反了疫情指揮中心宣示的原則。到昨天為止,他不僅感染了觀光局員工父子,也累及一名同機旅客(案二八四)確診;至於其父和另一名觀光局員工及一連串交通部會接觸者,恐怕都在剉著等。

陳時中上周才宣示,在境外發病者,回台如果不誠實申報,最重將開罰十五萬元。那麼,以這名觀光局高官之子的情況,要不要開罰?如果連這種天下盡知的案例,指揮中心都要視關係親疏而故意放水,那麼其他被罰的人豈能心服口服?

再談柯文哲的批評。他的抱怨其實可以分成兩部分:其一,現在「紐約比武漢危險」是事實,但我對紐約入境者的管制卻比湖北返國者寬鬆;前者只需居家檢疫,後者卻需集中隔離,這是雙重標準。其二,要求「不要一直放人進來」,是因為地方政府的防疫能量已達極限,尤其台北和新北兩市;指揮中心若不能為雙北增補檢疫人力,至少要疏散部分隔離或檢疫者,交給其他縣市處理。當初政府不放行武漢台胞返國,就是以「檢疫量能」有限為藉口,如今放行歐美返台民眾卻是「量能無上限」地收。這類令人困惑的兩套標準,除了讓民眾無所遵循,地方也可能因人力短缺而形成防疫破口。

當疫情進入第二波高峰後,台灣確診人數已由五十人迅速增至三百多人,死亡人數上升至五例,指揮中心似乎已出現了若干疲態。除了上述處理不同地區或人物案例採取「雙重標準」外,指揮中心最輕率的決策,是在上月廿一日宣布「輕症不二採」,讓「居家檢疫」留下了一個大破口。最近,多名確診者在「居家檢疫」時將病毒傳染給同住的家人,就是這個破口釀禍。

我們檢視最近幾起案例:第二八九例確診者,是丈夫自西班牙、葡萄牙旅遊返國後,在進行居家檢疫時遭到感染。第二四六例確診者,則是受赴美探親返國後居家檢疫的妻子感染;案二四七的確診女性,則是受到荷蘭就學返台居家檢疫的家人感染。陳時中將這些案例籠統稱為「群聚感染」,事實上,他們的感染源就是「家人」,是政府在疫情大流行時草率放輕症者回家的無辜感染者。

由此,我們也看到了指揮中心的另一個「雙重標準」。這些在新冠肺炎擴散至全球風潮中的歐美返國者,依政府第一階段的嚴格措施看,其實是具有更高的感染風險。然而,政府不僅輕率地放他們入境,任由他們各自返家「居家檢疫」,又更將檢驗放寬標準為「輕症不二採」;這種種舉措,都顯得自相矛盾。對待風險更高的群體,卻反而採取更低的標準,當然會形成防疫漏洞。試想,就算居家防疫者足不出戶,但他們不知不覺中受到感染的家人卻繼續外出上班;如此連環下來,會把病毒帶向多遠?

中國大陸派赴義大利的專家說,義大利的疫情之所以未能有效圍堵,主要是義國讓輕症患者居家隔離而非集中隔離,結果致使他們將病毒傳染給家人,這也是武漢在疫情爆發初期犯過的策略錯誤。那麼,台灣還要再犯同樣的錯誤嗎?

羅斯福號航母艦長的信奏效 美海軍允分批上岸檢疫

2020-04-02 04:47 中央社 / 舊金山1日專電

美國羅斯福號航空母艦上疫情惡化,美國海軍將採取行動,承諾分批讓士官兵上岸隔離檢疫,且極有可能在24小時內把艦艇上多數人轉移到關島的旅館,僅一部分人力留船執勤。

羅斯福號航空母艦(USS Theodore Roosevelt)上週起在關島停泊,艦上有4000多名官兵,艦長克勞齊上校(Capt. Brett Crozier)30日緊急致函美國海軍部求援讓艦艇上的士官兵下船檢疫,長達4頁的信件昨天由「舊金山紀事報」(San Francisco Chronicle)獨家取得後報導。

美軍太平洋艦隊司令阿基里諾(John Aquilino)於31日表示,海軍部已經在計劃「盡快」讓船上一部分官兵先下船,在關島上合宜的處所隔離、檢疫。

阿基里諾提到,可用的基礎設施很少,因此,這項工作需要向關島當地政府要求提供旅館空間。

阿基里諾認為,「海軍部的計畫與艦長克勞齊的請求同調」,他認為克勞齊擔心的是「救援士官兵的速度,而不是我們不救他們」。

羅斯福號3月24日在海上傳出3人感染2019冠狀病毒疾病(CODIV-19,武漢肺炎),之後確診人數急劇攀升,艦艇上一位資深士官告訴舊金山紀事報,才一個星期已有超過100人檢測確診。

報導指出,海軍部的計畫是分組輪流上岸進行14天的隔離檢疫,然後恢復健康的官兵組回到上船,接著第2批再展開相同流程,但是一次多少官兵上岸尚不清楚,而這樣的計畫至少會讓羅斯福號在關島停留一個月。

因為克勞齊這封信,艦艇上的士官兵士氣大增,認為艦長真的關心船員。一位羅斯福號上的海軍官員告訴舊金山紀事報,艦長將船員的安全放在第一,可能會對他的職涯造成傷害。

匿名受訪的海官說:「艦長採取非常大膽的行動,因為在未來論及晉升海軍上將時,這件事有可能傷害或幫助他。」

另一位已經在隔離名單的士兵看到艦長的信件後說:「令人讚嘆的信,感覺有人把我們的最大利益放在心上,很少看到這樣,通常是任務優先。」

船上官兵表示,基於艦艇的先天空間有限,很難奉行適當的檢疫與隔離。他們在艦艇上共用淋浴、洗手台、廁所,而且他們每天近距離接觸,一個睡覺區域可能有60到150個通鋪,用餐區一次就有200位士官兵一起用餐。

克勞齊是加州聖羅沙(Santa Rosa)人,30日他致美國海軍部這封很不尋常的信函上寫著:「這需要政治解決,但這是正確的作為。此刻並非戰時,艦上官兵不需要犧牲。我們現在若不行動,就沒有讓我們最信賴的資產,也就是我們的官兵,受到妥善的照顧。」

克勞齊信中請求保留10%的官兵在艦艇上照顧兩個核子反應爐、武器和飛機。

近百船員染新冠求救信曝光 美羅斯福號艦長恐被罰

12:022020/04/02 中時電子報

吳映璠

美媒先前披露,停靠關島的美國航母「羅斯福」號傳出上百名、甚至高達200名船員感染新冠肺炎,艦長克勞齊上校(Capt. Brett Crozier)致函海軍的求救信函也曝光,長達4頁的信件內容描述船上的慘淡情況,呼籲海軍讓船員下船隔離。

目前整起事件的最新進展是,船上有93人新冠病毒檢測結果呈現陽性,美國海軍已經同意讓船員分批撤離,其中有約1,000名海軍已經下船,未來幾天內,下船人數將增加至2,700人。

不過艦長的求援信被曝光,恐已違反軍紀,美國海軍不排除對洩漏信件內容的人祭出懲處。路透社報導,海軍代理部長莫德里昨日在記者會上數度被問及,艦長克勞齊上校會否被懲處,莫德里回應不清楚誰將信件內容洩漏給媒體,這個行為已經違反了軍隊秩序及紀律,如果是艦長所為,那他必須對此負責。

不過莫德里也強調,艦長寫信向上級求援、表達擔憂的舉動,絕對不會遭到報復。

另外據《國會山莊報》(The Hill)報導,莫德里在記者會上表示,對於克勞齊上校批評海軍不重視「羅斯福」號水手的說詞感到失望,批評這不是事實,稱海軍希望船員健康、安全,也需要「羅斯福」號繼續運作,更表示不認同艦長說艦上只需要10%船員留守的說法。

路透指出,美國海軍因應「羅斯福」號疫情的速度令艦上船員相當沮喪,一名匿名水手抱怨,「為什麼看起來像是我們的指揮官在向海軍拜託照顧我們,但是上面卻無法迅速制定好計畫?」

並非無理!美艦長求援遭拔官 海軍親解釋關鍵大錯

07:002020/04/04 中時電子報

馮英志

傳出上百人確診新冠病毒的美海軍「羅斯福號」航空母艦,艦長克勞齊(Brett Crozier)上校因對外流出向國防部求援的信件而遭美國海軍拔除艦長一職,此案引起多位美議員關注,表示此舉恐引起寒蟬效應。對此,美國代理海軍部長莫德里透過公開信指出,克勞齊以不安全方式求援,不僅造成不必要的混亂與恐慌,更破壞了指揮鏈結構。


傳出上百人確診新冠病毒的美海軍「羅斯福號」航空母艦艦長克勞齊,因向媒體外洩其向海軍的求援信而遭解職,對此美國代理海軍部長莫德里透過公開信解釋原因。


莫德利(Thomas Modly)指出,他自己的兒子正在處於疫區之中的南韓服役,他和每一位美軍軍眷一樣關心官兵健康與安全,作為一名父親與老兵,我們對官兵們健康與安全的支援線至關重要,特別是全球處於大流行之際。


但莫德利強調,現今的指揮官必須明白,當下的戰略情境正是處於「非戰非和」,極端政權正在崛起,許多國家正嘗試削減美軍達成國家目標的能力,且每日都在發生,而美國海軍與海軍陸戰隊已長久以來面臨這種全球戰略挑戰,對指揮官而言,更加機敏且適應力強的心智是必要的。


莫德利指出,自從羅斯福號的指揮官寫信敘述他關切發生新冠病毒疫情後,美國海軍早已動用大量資源回應其要求;就在他寫信求援的同日,莫德利已要求直接通知海軍司令部,且克勞齊隨時能夠與他本人、海軍軍令部長吉爾德上將(Michael Martin Gilday)、太平洋艦隊司令阿基里諾上將(John Christopher Aquilino)與「羅斯福號」打擊群指揮官貝克少將(Stuart Baker)直接通話,各方也開過多次視訊會議,確保克勞齊有一切所需資源可照顧船員們的健康與安全。


莫德利進一步說明,但克勞齊仍以「不安全、未加密」的方式向媒體洩露這封信,在海軍全軍上下動用資源之際,克勞齊把這封信寄出指揮鏈之外;更糟糕的是,艦長的行為讓水手與其家人,以及社會大眾認為海軍大家庭會出手救援只是因為他的一封信,但事實並非如此。


也表示,他並非輕易做出解職這一決定,也絕非對克勞齊尋求其船員們安全與健康最佳利益的心思有所懷疑,但很不幸地,他所作為完全相反,不必要地提高水手軍眷們的憂慮,不僅讓外界關切羅斯福號的作戰能力與任務安全,恐進一步增長對手氣勢、藉此尋求佔便宜,且破壞了指揮鏈的指揮官,必須盡快調離其職位。


路透社報導,美國海軍解職克勞齊的舉動,恐對軍中其他有意通報問題的人產生寒蟬效應。民主黨籍聯邦參議員華納(Mark Warner)對於克勞齊遭解職批評,海軍需要願意為船上官兵說話的人,且從克勞齊的行動判斷,「只是想為他的下屬做最適合的決定」,不懂為何要懲罰這樣的人,尤其是有這麼多條人命處於危急關頭。此外,川普在白宮疫情記者會上被問及此事也表示,他個人也對海軍將克勞齊解職不表贊同。

也許有人會覺得寧可讓美英境外移入新冠肺炎一萬例

也不准中國大陸境外移入一例

因為從美英得到的口水是甜蜜蜜的

我實在非常懷疑一件事,這些所謂境外移入的問題

越南人口比我們多那麼多,確診竟如此少,然後還可以傳染給美國大兵

是不是社區感染其實已經存在,只是政府掩蓋事實?

美軍靠港經常替當地性產業帶來大量收入,當年臺灣就因此有所謂的美軍酒吧,「美軍混血兒」更是時代的產物

現在美軍「又」到越南了,當年的越戰混血兒也已經有一定年紀了。

至於越南至今仍然只有233例,卻能成功傳染給美軍,這些統計的可信度,真的令人質疑

航母羅斯福號艦長求援成功後遭拔官 理由「製造恐慌」

2020-04-03 08:03 聯合報 / 編譯胡夢瑋/即時報導

羅斯福號航母艦長克羅齊爾遭拔官。法新社


停靠在關島的美國航空母艦「羅斯福號」艦長克羅齊爾(Brett Crozier)日前因船上出現新冠肺炎疫情,寫了四頁備忘錄向上級求救。法新社報導,美國海軍代理部長2日將艦長撤職,表示他未妥善處理航母疫情溝通問題。


美海軍代理部長默德利(Thomas B. Modly)表示,克羅齊爾不應該將充滿情緒、描述近5000名官兵受到疫情威脅的備忘錄影印給許多人,導致國防部高層看到前,信函就已經洩漏給媒體。


CNN報導,克羅齊爾把備忘錄印給20到30人。默德利說,克羅齊爾未依安全方式按照指揮系統反映,增加洩密機會。


默德利表示,羅斯福號上有114人確診新冠肺炎,但他們狀況不嚴重,克羅齊爾誇大航母狀況嚴重性。備忘錄中說,如果不盡快採取行動,官兵生命將會受到威脅。


默德利說,克羅齊爾處理備忘錄的方式,顯示他在這場危機處理的判斷力欠佳。他說,「這封信錯誤呈現航母上的真實狀況,製造不必要的些微恐慌」。

新冠疫情害的 羅斯福號航母艦長丟官

就在美國海軍「羅斯福」號(USS Theodore Roosevelt,CVN-71)航母艦長寫備忘錄向高層示警,說艦上有近百人感染新冠肺炎,要求讓艦上人員下船後,美國代理海軍部長莫德里(Thomas Modly)周四宣布,解除他的職務。


據CNN新聞網和Fox5電視台2日報導,莫德里在五角大廈的新聞簡報會中說,在他指示下,航母打擊群指揮官貝克(Stewart Baker)解除了「羅斯福」號艦長克勞齊上校(Capt. Brett Crozier)的指揮職務。


莫德里說,這項決定和他「洩密」無關,而是由於他在疫情衝擊下,喪失了專業判斷力。莫德里指出,他跳脫指揮體系外,透過不安全的系統送出備忘錄,增加了洩密的風險。


不過,莫德里強調,會解除克勞齊的指揮職務,並不是因為有任何證據顯示,他向媒體洩漏備忘錄,而是因為艦上爆發新冠肺炎疫情,形成錯綜複雜的挑戰,令他的專業能力無法招架,而當時最需要的,就是發揮專業能力。


「我既沒有情報,也沒想要暗示,他洩漏了軍情。消息刊登在《舊金山紀事報》(San Francisco Chronicle)上,事情上了報,令我們全都大吃一驚,而那是我前所未見的,」莫德里說,「我要說的是,他相當廣泛地散佈消息,而在廣為散播消息的同時,並沒有用心確保它不能外洩。而依我來看,那是他份內職責的一部份。」


克勞齊稍早在致美國海軍太平洋艦隊(Pacific Fleet)的備忘錄中說:「我們沒在打仗,兵員不必死。要是我們現在不行動,就無法適當保護我們最信賴的資產──也就是我們的士兵。」
