The ministry said that Admiral Charles W. Ray, the deputy commander of the US Coast Guard, had tested positive for the virus, and therefore everyone who had contact with him had been placed in quarantine. The Coast Guard said that the Admiral had mild symptoms.
General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, and his deputy, General John Heitin, are in quarantine, and commanders of the land, sea and air forces have been voluntarily removed. Paul Nakasone, Head of Electronic Headquarters, also distinguished himself.
