In some of the sick crew members of the aircraft carrier, the virus was detected again.
The US aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, which spent almost two months in the port of Guam after the largest outbreak of coronavirus in the US armed forces, may return to sea this week.
Representatives of the military reported this.
While about 3,000 sailors returned to the ship to prepare for departure, at least 14 tested positive for the virus.
Some of the newly infected sailors have already had COVID-19, and their tests were negative, defense officials said.
Representatives of the military do not know whether they are talking about false-negative results or whether the sailors were infected after spending two weeks in quarantine on Guam.
