Military's COVID-19 cases growing at twice the nationwide rate
from Military Times
More than 4,100 service members have tested positive for coronavirus since the July 1, according to the Defense Department's latest statistics, a rise of about 33% in the last 10 days. That is more than twice the rate of growth nationwide during the same period, 16%, as the U.S. more than once broke its daily records for new cases. Defense officials have attributed the recent rise in military cases both to increased testing and to the lifting of shelter-in-place orders in some force concentration areas, while expressing faith that local commanders are enforcing protective measures like social distancing and face covering for their troops.
