Donald Trump to Travel to Virginia to Send Off Medical Ship to New York

President Donald Trump on Thursday announced that he would travel personally to Virginia on Saturday to send off a medical ship to New York for coronavirus patients.

I’ll go and we’ll be waving together,” Trump said, adding, “Great ship.”

The medical ship USNS Comfort is currently at the Norfolk naval base and will arrive in New York City on Monday.

The Comfort has 1,000 medical beds, 12 fully equipped operating rooms, and up to 1,200 doctors, nurses, and medical specialists.

The ship is expected to provide hospital surge capacity for medical care for patients in New York City as the city struggles with the coronavirus outbreak.
