Recommended Posts

With a confirmed case of coronavirus already among the crew members of the USNS Comfort, the hospital ship docked in New York City formally will begin accepting patients with the respiratory illness, U.S. Northern Command announced Tuesday.

The Comfort’s transition to coronavirus care is to help relieve mounting pressure on the city’s hospital system, according to a news release from Northern Command, which is taking the lead on the Defense Department’s coronavirus operations in the United States. https://www.stripes.com/news/navy/usns-comfort-now-taking-coronavirus-patients-in-nyc-crew-member-tests-positive-1.625153
