They aren't equipped to take on virus cases. They are just there to treat "normal" hospital cases. From the likes of car crashes and such.

They will only be there to take the pressure off.

Fck the virus, but this is the perfect existing pretext for Trump to roll in and fix the lib-city problems without it looking like he's stepping on anybody's toes.

AND it's off shore, so I believe they'll be able to run things without Demo-flak.

2
learntocode 2 points ago (edited)

Buying American should be a simple economic choice. Instead, we tax human labor until nobody can afford to do business and help corporations take our innovative work and ship it to places like China; we.have made it both legal.and profitable for companies to be bought out and strip mined for financial business and banks - two of the most worthless places to make a profit. Trump sees this and if we had congressional leaders that could win an election without foreign interference we could.get some.modest changes to turn the ship of state, slowly, in a different direction.

Because it's more about punishing men than about supporting children. If it were about supporting children, there would be a requirement that the money be used only for their benefit.

California only needs the Mercy because Gov Jerry Brown throw out all the MASH units in 2012/13 because they cost 6 million a year to maintain. Among the things Brown throw out were thousands of ventilators, The MASH units could hold about 800 beds combined.

Tangent comment. I'm interested in names of ships. MERCY and COMFORT are among the best-named ships in the Fleet. Another class of Navy ships has names that sound like Trump named them himself. I'll share them with you.

I did 20 years in the Navy myself. Always thought the minesweepers had the best names.

For some reason, Dextrous, Avenger, and Chief have a certain appeal to me. God bless them. Especially Dextrous haha.

Thank you sincerely! I gave up after 26 because I just couldnt keep going to sea after that lol. Also, realize that it's possible that you and I crossed paths, but anonymity here will keep us from knowing. About the minesweeps - go back to the classes preceding AVENGER...even better names.

TXNFOURDJT 2 points ago

I noped out on re-enlistment. There is one thing about the Navy, either you love it or hate it. Of course we had a Captain at the time who would volunteer us for anything. We spent 9 months of the year at sea.

1
Warren_Puffitt 1 point ago

had a Captain at the time who would volunteer us for anything

I get it. Something that I found was that when I was in a place that I found disagreeable, waiting a few years for orders often cured the problem. Meanwhile, I worked to fix what was broken.

Also, patience.

I was a carrier guy myself; served on 3 of them; USS ENTERPRISE (CVN-65), USS HARRY S TRUMAN (CVN-75) and USS GEORGE HW BUSH (CVN-77). Thanks to you too! Got to tour a minesweep while in boot camp in 1992 in San Diego. Can't remember which one it was though.

Officially, the city councils of SF and Oakland hate Fleet Week. The residents of those wonderful cities have also decried the celebration of "racist militarism" for the past, oh, 6 decades or so. They're also over 90% communist, so why waste valuable resources on non-humans?

https://imgur.com/a/7HqgENk This is what I see. I guess I don't understand what you're referencing? Not trying to be argumentative but it looks typical of a ship leaving port. I'm not familiar with ships leaving the East coast as I am with the West coast so I'm asking to be enlightened.

Is it just me or does a hospital ship remind you too much of a cruise ship?

I would hope that a military hospital ship is equipped with a proper negative pressure air system because the military has to be able to deal with e.g. anthrax in wartime. I hope.

nwainil [S] 23 points ago

they are not using it for Covid-19 cases. They are using it for other cases to free up hospitals for Covid-19.

True. I'm sure they won't put anyone on the ship who hasn't been tested and cleared first.

That's not how testing for a virus works.

You might be infected and not have enough viruses to test positive.

1-2 days later you may be positive and shedding viruses.

There is no foolproof method to keep the virus off a boat. It only takes one person. This is why you should stay away from cruise ships.

1
DoesItWorkAlready 1 point ago

The correct answer is - watch the video of inside the hospital ship.

What do you hear throughout the video? Massive fan/air noise.

That's all mass movement of filtered air, like in a manufacturing clean room.

I'm pretty sure the military got this right.

There's a PBS documentary, Carrier that's about the USS Nimitz. You'd get a feel for the inside of one of the ships with this, the carrier just has more wide-open spaces for obvious reasons.

CaptainChrisPBacon 4 points ago

A berth is similar to a parking spot for a car, it's the place where the ship is "parked." Also Money can be parked offshore. A Iceberg can be parked offshore. But generally a person who is a professional on the water would say docked/Berthed and if parked offshore would say anchored offshore. Landlubbers calling it parked would not be wrong.

Some of us are really, really hoping that the patients these ships are intended for really are there.

They're not coronavirus patients

They're not prisoners

They're not your average accident victim or heart attack sufferer

We are hoping they are the survivors of one of the greatest and most evil tragedies the world has ever known

These secure and private ships would be the ideal places to care for them

and yes, maybe they're anchored right outside two of the most liberal and degenerate regions in our nation for a good reason

sure hoping that's no accident and that mercy and comfort really awaiting these patients

7
nwainil [S] 7 points ago

Seriously? They are keeping people safe who are compromised from other ailments and need to be hospitalized away from the hospital that could bring them death.

4
incogneato 4 points ago

Think about it. Hospitals are good at segregating anyone contagious, if need be. Or at opening separate facilities or putting up tents in the parking lot in a serious enough emergency.

This outbreak is nationwide/worldwide. There are only two hospital ships to take these "other compromised patients" and care for them. What are the other cities supposed to do? Chicago and Dallas don't have hospital ships, for example. Have not heard anything about how they should care for their other "compromised" patients.

Not trying to argue with you. It's just that this really doesn't add up. I think there's another reason why those two ships were dispatched specifically to L.A. and N.Y.C. We'll find out soon enough.

We're hoping the ships are being sent to help victims of human trafficking that are finally being freed as part of this operation - mostly children and teenagers. I'd really love to see that happen.

I am not seeing any overloaded hospitals anywhere. Anybody got pics/video/even a reliable eyewitness account?

Even with the H1N1 outbreak, which was way worse, there was no need for hospital ships. So, why now? If you thought you might be bringing out hundreds of kidnapped children, where would be the ideal place to treat them?
