USS Mercy.

This is coolbert:

USS Mercy to the rescue. American military hospital ship. COVID-19 response.

"Pentagon Says Preparing Two Navy Hospital Ships to Respond to COVID-19 Outbreak"

Thanks to the Russian medial outlet Sputnik for the article.

"The United States has so far registered more than 5,700 coronavirus cases, while at least 94 US citizens have died from the disease, according to the data provided by Johns Hopkins University."

"[Mark] Esper [SEC DEF] noted that the vessels are not equipped for infected people because they are primarily designed for trauma patients, but could take such patients from general hospitals if needed so that they could provide more space for infectious disease patients."

Sounds like a plan. Limited resources on those hospital ships in such circumstances but every little bit can help and will.
