Sailors: Naval ship on lockdown for coronavirus concerns

By Jacob Nakamura

(Tumon, Guam) Despite assurances from both Guam Homeland Security and Joint Region Marianas the past three days that there is no coronavirus infection or suspected infection on Guam, numerous sailors aboard a Naval ship docked at Apra Harbor are tweeting that their ship is on lockdown because of an infection concern.

The ship came from Japan.

Several tweets purporting to come from sailors on board complain of the Navy's decision to lock the sailors on board.

"[W]assup bitches. tweeting live from a piet in Guam and we can't leave the ship bc of corona virus lol yeehaw." - @laurensee9996 at 6:03 p.m. today

Another purported sailor took out his anger on the people of Guam, wishing Guamanians ill - literally:

"Guam definitely got me hella fucked up (four emojis punctuating) I hope all y'all get fuckin sick." - @jaay_swavely at 2:45 p.m. today

Kandit has reached out to both Jenna Blas with GHS and Captain Christian Hodge with Joint Region for comments on this matter. News releases from the past several days have been confirming to residents the absence of confirmed or suspected cases of the virus.

Sources within Andersen Air Force Base told Kandit last night that the heads of the various departments had an emergency meeting yesterday due to the concern of a possible virus infection aboard a Naval ship.

All these floating diplomats in uniform must have missed the sitrep briefing on cultural sensitivities.


There is a cruise ship now anchored off the coast of San Fransico that cannot unload it, passengers, as their last port of call was Japan.

It would seem that Guam and Cal. are being cautious while the MVA and the CNMI, in general, are begging and attempting to entice passengers from Japan. Japan has/is seeing a daily increase in infected people.

What will happen when someone brings that virus into the CNMI? It will be disastrous.
