The Navy announced on Christmas Eve that one of its ships has “paused its deployment” due to a COVID-19 outbreak onboard among it’s “100 percent immunized crew.”
The ship was headed to South America from Florida, but instead remains at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay near Cuba.
In the Christmas Eve statement, the Navy’s 4th Fleet said, “USS Milwaukee (LCS 5), a Freedom variant littoral combat ship, remains in port as some Sailors test positive for COVID-19. The crew is 100 percent immunized and all COVID-19 positive Sailors are isolated on board and away from other crew members. A portion of those infected have exhibited mild symptoms.”
The ship was set to join the Joint Interagency Task Force South’s mission. This mission includes “counter-illicit drug trafficking missions in the Caribbean and Eastern Pacific.”

The statement did not say exactly how many sailors were infected or how many were actually displaying symptoms, nor did it specify which variant was discovered, if known.
It did, however, push forward the pro-vaccine narrative by adding, “The vaccine continues to demonstrate effectiveness against serious illness.”
The Milwaukee reportedly held over 100 sailors, “plus a helicopter combat crew and Coast Guard law enforcement unit” at the time of departure on December 14. Spokesperson Commander Kate Meadows said that the crew is isolated onboard and has not entered the base to prevent viral spread.
The stupidest of decisions is to take a combat ready ship out of action over a cold. https://t.co/KJ2WhuO0vw

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
