US military hospital ship arrives in New York

NEW YORK — A military hospital ship arrives in New York today as America’s coronavirus epicenter prepares to fight the peak of the pandemic that has killed over 2,500 people across the United States.

The navy’s 1,000-bed USNS Comfort enters a Manhattan pier around 10:45 a.m. local time.

It will treat non-virus-related patients, helping to ease the burden of hospitals overwhelmed by the crisis.
