The Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as other top U.S. military leaders, have gone into quarantine after attending meetings at the Pentagon with a Coast Guard commander who tested positive for coronavirus.
A Coast Guard Admiral tested positive after experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 over the weekend, but before testing positive, had also attended meetings with top commanders from each of the armed services at the Pentagon.
The Pentagon’s senior leadership had also attended a White House reception last week for “Gold Star” families of fallen troops with both President Trump and his wife, first lady Melania Trump, attending the event.
Both President Trump and the first lady have tested positive for the virus. The President was airlifted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for three days of treatment after experiencing a high fever and a drop in his oxygen level.
At Walter Reed, Trump was given experimental treatments, including an antibody cocktail, the antiviral medication remdesivir, and the steroid dexamethasone.
General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is among the top Pentagon officials quarantining. The head of the U.S. Cyber Command, General Paul Nakasone, was also quarantined.
But a Pentagon spokesman said the quarantine won’t affect “the operational readiness or mission capability of the U.S. Armed Forces.”
White House officials, citing national security, had told Defense Department officials they did not have to inform the public or the press about the coronavirus status of senior Pentagon leaders but Pentagon officials have questioned that directive.
The Biblical prophecies of Lord Jesus (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretold that pestilences would be a sign of the Last Days indicating the nearing end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
