What?! USNS Comfort Deployed To Assist Non-Coronavirus Patients. So Why Did This Happen?

(Tea Party 247) – On Monday, the Navy hospital ship USNS Comfort docked in New York City to provide aide as local hospitals are faced with a deluge of coronavirus patients.

The ship was expected to treat non-coronavirus patients while hospitals treated people with COVID-19.

After just three days in the harbor, however, the 1,000-bed floating hospital had only seen three patients.

According to a new report Saturday, several patients were somehow mistakenly brought to the hospital ship USNS Comfort, which was specifically meant to be free of the highly contagious virus.

“Less than five” infected patients were reportedly transferred to the vessel sometime on Friday, according to an official who spoke with Fox News.

The 1,000-bed US Navy Ship docked at Pier 90 on the West Side of Manhattan after arriving to the island Monday. It is intended for trauma patients only.

The New York Post reported:

Anyone sent to the USNS Comfort must have a coronavirus test, but up to the point of getting on the ship, the infected patients only filled out a questionnaire and had their temperature taken as part of their screening, which did not indicate they were positive, according to Fox News.

The swab tests came back positive hours later, but risk to the hospital ship’s crew was “low,” because the new patients were isolated as part of protocols already in place, the outlet reported.

The patients arrived from the Javits Center, which has been converted to a 3,000-bed field hospital that does permit coronavirus patients. They were brought back there Saturday morning to continue their treatment, the outlet reported.

The blunder is why the US Navy ship — which has just 24 patients so far– did not want to fill all 1,000 beds on board too quickly because the risk of the virus coming on board, an official told the site.

    • Hey steve sometimes torching is the fastest way They burned it to the ground for SMALL POX Turning 8 million sinners to ashes is a small price to pay for Saving the World Never been to the Apple I bet

    • How about we hang you by your toes upside down over our camp fire and cook you real slooowly?! And then leave you for our furry friends ( bears, foxes, etc.) of the forest.

    • Make the movie ‘Escape from New York’ real. Build a wall and keep them all inside. Toss big fredo Cuomo in with a catapult. Most of NYS problems solved in one fell swoop.

  1. I’m interested in the article of this email only as those that has nothing to do with it are just wasting my time.

  2. Mistakes are made but this was a big one. Apparently someone didn’t get the memo about no corn virus patients to be brought here. And someone upon check in at the ship didn’t do their job of screening why the patient was coming to them. Break down of procedure.

  3. I get paid $83,000 a month working from home, just for being a member of a Ukrainian energy company despite no experience or Ukrainian language ability! After divorcing my wife and dating my late brother’s widow, I’ve now got a smoking hot stripper as a baby momma, and the best part is that I’m not even paying her child support! I never thought I’d be able to do this after getting kicked from the Navy and busted for crack possession, but my dad became Vice President of the United States. His siblings suddenly started racking up sweetheart deals, and that convinced me to try, and you can, too! Once he becomes POTUS, the potential with this will be endless. Check it out.

  4. Can you PLEASE STOP these ANNOYING responses, that have NOTHING to do with the article ! They are PURE SPAM !

    • Read it again. It’s written in sarcasm and it’s really funny. Basically it’s about the Bidens and how much money they’ve made betraying the United States.

  5. Someone dropped the ball. ALL news broadcasts, even the fake reporters, told the world the purpose of the ship. All medical staff were informed of its purpose. THIS is a serious mistake that could have serious spreading repercussions. The super who ordered the boarding should be reprimanded – not the plebe who did what he as told.

    • Pat, the Comfort was originally supposed to take the over load of non–virus patients out of virus treating hospitals but is now taking virus patients. I just read that Louisiana has a shortage of hospital beds and I know of one empty hospital in Baton Rouge and a new hospital almost patient read in Vidalia, Louisiana.

  6. STAY AT HOME & WORK AT HOME
    My neighbor’s step-mother makes $81/hour on the laptop. She has been without a job for nine months but last month her payment was $16755 just working on the laptop for a few hours.
