Coronavirus survivors banned from joining the military

I mean, aren’t they projecting like 80% of the population will get this eventually? Won’t this just mean we’ll have an army of about 300 soldiers by 2023?

As the Defense Department negotiates its way through the coronavirus pandemic and its fallout, military entrance processing stations are working with new guidance when it comes to bringing COVID-19 survivors into the services.

A past COVID-19 diagnosis is a no-go for processing, according to a recently released MEPCOM memo circulating on Twitter.

“During the medical history interview or examination, a history of COVID-19, confirmed by either a laboratory test or a clinician diagnosis, is permanently disqualifying …” the memo reads.

And yes, it will probably be rescinded but what was the rationale behind this originally? Is there a really big problem with people with covid-19 antibodies that we haven’t been told about yet?
