Virus Survivors Disqualified from Military Service

From the article:

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.

WTF? Why would a past diagnosis be a disqualifying event?
