Provide additional medical personnel according to their needs'. He also said the goal was to control the virus, and no crew on board was seriously ill.

In addition, Acting Secretary of the U.S. Navy Modley responded on March 31 that he had known Crouch's letter, but Guam currently did not have enough beds and was coordinating whether officers and soldiers could live in hotels or tents.
