The number of confirmed novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases among US service members and related civilian population has exceeded 1,000, according to a US Department of Defenсe (DOD) fact sheet released on Monday.

“Total DoD Cases (current, recovered and deaths) is 1,087”, the fact sheet said.
According to the latest update, 569 service members have been infected, 26 are hospitalised and 34 have recovered. The rest of the cases concern civilian personnel, dependents and contractors.

Earlier in March, the Defence Department reported the first COVID-19-related death of a contractor who worked outside of the Pentagon building.

According to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, there are 143,532 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States with 2,572 deaths.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
