The USNS Comfort is docked in New York City. We’d like to take a moment to recognize all of the healthcare workers around the world for their bravery and dedication in combatting COVID-19. Thank you for everything that you do to keep us safe. The USNS Comfort is a U.S. Navy hospital ship that arrived in New York City on March 30th and began seeing COVID-19 patients on April 6th. The ship has 1,000 hospital beds, 500 of which will be used for severe coronavirus cases — taking some of the burden off of New York City hospitals.
