Pentagon Building responds to new coronary pneumonia epidemic
According to three Pentagon officials, because of the new pandemic pneumonia pandemic, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper has signed an order to freeze the movement of all US troops overseas for 60 days, and the Pentagon has confirmed in a statement later.


According to a CNN News Network report on the 25th, the Pentagon said that there are currently 227 U.S. troops, 67 family members, 81 civilian personnel from the Ministry of Defense, and 40 contractors who tested positive for new pneumonia. According to the Pentagon's calculations based on the model, the epidemic is likely to get worse in the next three weeks.

The new order means that for the next 60 days, all U.S. troops stationed abroad, or those currently scheduled to travel from the United States to the deployment base, will stay where they are. This frozen action order will affect 90,000 U.S. troops, including troops scheduled to return home, as well as troops scheduled to be deployed overseas.

The U.S. Department of Defense said that this measure aims to further prevent the spread of new coronary pneumonia, protect U.S. personnel, and maintain the preparedness of the U.S. global forces. However, there are some exceptions; for example, warships scheduled to return to the United States can return home as long as they stay at sea for at least 14 days. In addition, the Pentagon said that patients and those who provide medical care for the Ministry of Defense personnel and their families are also not restricted. Similarly, those who have already started are not limited.

This decision means that troops stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan will be deployed for an additional 2 months. It is unclear if the commander has the need to strengthen troops, whether the freeze order will cause obstruction.


This is one of the latest measures taken by the Pentagon in order to protect troops and civilian personnel from the new coronary pneumonia.
