A Georgia-based sailor died of “COVID-related complications” Thursday, the U.S. Navy said in a statement.

The sailor, assigned to the blue crew of the ballistic missile submarine Tennessee, is believed to be the 20th servicemember to die after contracting the novel coronavirus, according to U.S. Defense Department tallies.

The sailor’s name is being withheld for 24 hours pending next-of-kind notification.

The sailor was admitted to the hospital aboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida, Saturday, and transferred to the University of Florida Hospital Health Shands Hospital’s intensive care unit on Sunday, where the sailor tested positive for COVID-19.

A terrible shame. I think these men should be equated as essential people so they can all receive the vaccine. They may already be essential, but I didn't read anything about that. RIP
