A group of U.S. Senators, including Sherrod Brown, is raising concerns about the rising number of coronavirus cases in the armed forces.
They’ve written a letter (see it below) to Defense Secretary Mark Esper to express their concerns. They say cases of COVID-19 among the military rose by more than 20,000 in July.
Senator Brown says Esper and other civilian leaders are not properly prioritizing the health of servicemembers.
“He’s simply failed in his efforts to address head on this coronavirus in the military.”
