Military COVID-19 Cases Spike 41% in June

COVID-19 cases in the military shot up more than 41% in June among service members, dependents and Defense Department civilians and contractors in what Pentagon officials said Wednesday was a reflection of the surge of the virus in hotspot states.

Among service members alone, the number of COVID-19 cases nearly doubled in June — from 6,396 on June 1 to 12,521 as of July 1, according to Defense Department figures.
