USA Sends Part of its Military to the “safest base in the world” to Prevent COVID-19

The Northern Command of the United States (USA) decided to separate its personnel to prevent the coronavirus pandemic.

Part of its military moved to a base in the mountains of the state of Colorado, confirmed the highest authority of the team.

In a Facebook broadcast to answer some questions, in the midst of the COVID-19 disease emergency, the head of the US Northern Command. USA, General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, emphasized a few days ago that the action serves to “defend the homeland.”

“To ensure that we can defend the homeland despite this pandemic, our command and control surveillance team here at headquarters was divided into multiple shifts, and parts of our surveillance team began to work from the Air Force Station of Cheyenne Mountain,” he said.

This is a bunker built in the 1960s under 610 meters of granite on Cheyenne Mountain, a few miles from the city of Colorado Springs. In the center there are six tunnels 12 meters wide and three stories high, said RT.

“We like to say it is the safest facility in the world,” base deputy director Steve Rose told the AP agency two years ago.

The complex has two 21-ton concrete and steel doors to protect the structure from possible atomic explosions, after it was erected in the middle of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.

The United States is already the global focus of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is why US President Donald Trump ordered the reserve’s military to be activated.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University EE. USA In recent hours, it has expanded its distance as the nation with the most infected in the world, to 124,686, while Italy has 92,472 and China some 82,120.

In the case of the death toll, there are more than 2,000 registered in the country, while worldwide 31,734 people have lost their lives, the majority in Italy (10,023) and Spain (6,528).

Still, Trump posted a thread of tweets the day before to make it clear that “no quarantine will be necessary.”
