New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he would ask the President to relocate the USNS Comfort “from non-Covid to Covid.”
The ship was initially sent to New York to treat patients uninfected with coronavirus. The ship is equipped with 1,000 hospital beds and is currently located in New York City.
Cuomo said the use of those beds for patients with coronavirus would make a significant difference to the state.
He added that he would call Trump today to make the request, CNN reported, MMN reported.
