Several cadets return for positive graduation in West Point exams for Covid-19

The reporter told CNN on Sunday that about 1% of the 2020 class who had already been brought back tested positive. The spokesman said none of the infected cadets were symptomatic, adding that “no cadet under the supervision of the army had contracted through in-person communication” and the victims were isolated. The size of the graduate class is about 1000 cadets.

“The Army and West Point US Military Academy have uninterrupted plans to ensure the health and safety of returning cadets in the 2020 class. There is mandatory screening for all and our numbers are about 1% – – test positive,” the spokesman said. “This was to be expected. No one was symptomatic while under Army supervision and no cadet contracted person-to-person contact. Those who tested positive were disconnected and received proper care and attention while we reorganized our cadets in an orderly manner.”

In April, the president announced that he would address the opening ceremony of West Point on June 13. His decision has been criticized for putting cadets’ health at risk. West Point said in a statement in late April that the graduation procession would be separated from recent postgraduate events due to the “maximum force health protection requirements” related to the coronavirus epidemic.

The West Point campus is in New York State, the state that has been hit the hardest by the coronavirus epidemic so far. Cadets have been away from campus since early March.
