1,000-bed US Navy hospital ship arrives in New York City for coronavirus aid

A floating U.S. Navy hospital arrived in New York today.

Chopper 12 was overhead as the USNS Comfort sailed along the New York Harbor into Manhattan's West Side.
The ship, docked at Pier 90, holds about 1,000 hospital beds, has several operating rooms and an onboard pharmacy.
The Comfort will be used to treat non-coronavirus patients to free up space in city hospitals to handle the pandemic.

The news comes just a week after its sister ship, the USNS Mercy, arrived in Los Angeles to perform a similar duty on the West Coast
