16 West Point Cadets COVID+ Ahead Of Trump Speech

USA Today reports:

The Army has determined 16 West Point cadets have tested positive for COVID-19 after returning to the campus for a commencement address by President Trump scheduled for June 13, according to sources on Capitol Hill.

The affected cadets, a fraction of the 850 who have returned to the campus since spring break in March, are receiving treatment but are not showing symptoms of the disease, Army Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, the West Point superintendent, said in an interview.

Critics have called Trump’s decision to attend West Point graduation a political stunt that endangers the health of cadets and those with whom they have had contact on their return to campus.
