Navy Ship With Strange Virus Quarantined 2 Months
A viral infection with symptoms similar to the mumps has been making its way around the USS Fort McHenry, a US Navy warship currently quarantined in the Persian Gulf, CNN reported.
At least 25 of the more than 700 troops on the ship have been diagnosed with parotitis.
“None of the cases are life-threatening and all have either already madeor are expected to make a full recovery,” Fifth Fleet told Business Insider in an emailed statement.
A US Navy warship deployed to the Persian Gulf has been quarantined at sea for more than two months because of a viral outbreak, a rare move the US Navy revealed Wednesday after an inquiry from CNN.
A viral infection, parotitis, with symptoms similar to the mumps, has spread across the USS Fort McHenry, a Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship, affecting a total of 25 sailors and Marines. Symptoms of the illness appeared for the first time in December of last year.
Sick sailors were quarantined aboard the vessel and treated in the onboard medical facilities while their living areas were cleaned and disinfected. No one had to be medevaced off the ship, CNN reported Wednesday afternoon, but it’s very unusual for US warships to spend more than two months at sea without a port call.
