April 5, 2020 – Sailors aboard the Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) simulate a patient’s transfer onto the ship in support of the nation’s COVID-19 response efforts. Comfort serves as a referral hospital for non-COVID-19 patients currently admitted to shore-based hospitals and COVID-19 patients not requiting intensive care. This approach allows shore-based hospitals to focus their efforts on severe COVID-19 cases.
One of the Department of Defense’s missions is Defense Support of Civil Authorities. DoD is supporting the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the lead federal agency, as well as state, local and public health authorities in helping protect the health and safety of the American people.
