Some HMS Queen Elizabeth Crew COVID Test Positive 19 September, 2020

 

A "small amount" of personnel onboard Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth have been diagnosed as positive for coronavirus during a second round of testing on the ship. The entire ship's company has been retested during the past week, following positive coronavirus cases found earlier this month while in Portsmouth.

The Queen Elizabeth-class carrier's departure from the city's naval base was delayed by several days following the diagnoses, with her eventually setting sail last Wednesday. The £3 billion warship then returned to Portsmouth at the weekend, as planned.
