How The Navy’s Largest Hospital Ship Can Help With The Coronavirus Crisis

4 082
As the coronavirus spreads across the country, governments are trying to find ways to assist local hospitals. This is why Defense Secretary Mark Esper ordered the Navy to plan on deploying two of its hospital ships to highly affected areas. One of those hospital ships is the USNS Comfort, which was deployed last year on humanitarian missions.

Wake up people. These 2 ships represent the Freemasonic TEMPLAR pillars Jachin and Boaz . Just like on 911 when the twin towers went down, this time all of America is the sacrifice. They are telling you everything between these towers will be subject to destruction. This is your chance to get out, its coming down......they warned you....This is one big giant blackmagic ritual that you are consenting to if you believe the lies. 19 is a spell also, its all about symbolism , its hegelian dialectic. The masks are black magic sucking your prana and lowering your immune system even more, its vampires vs humans now. These demons dont care about your health America is the innocent blood of the lamb sacrifice to bring in their anti christ in Israel. This is why America has been coddled and allowed to stay innocent while we bomb every country on the planet.

a train conducter ran his train off track to try in a attempt to hit the shipp. He made it 250yrds away from the actual ship, conducter told fbi he doesn't believe the ship is here for what "there" saying it is here for.. trippy af.

But if someone who has a wound and covid as well then wouldn't that harm the staff on board and everyone else?
lee - 5 måneder siden
a patient who has a wound/ different condition would probably be treated with covid patients. they would probably just receive supplemental care for the underlying condition as well

President Reagan’s mission to help poverty stricken countries with these medical ships turns out to be our own saving grace. I didn’t vote for him but now I wish I had.

@lee The ship is for the 150,000 indictments and children that's getting rescued from SRA Child rape abuse, child trafficking, ...which is all over New York City and surrounding areas.
lee - 5 måneder siden
it makes sense that the ship is in NY, which has the most covid cases in the us. and think, if the ship was nefarious, do you honestly think they’re paint it white and red and create fanfare?
lee - 5 måneder siden
no one is going to the ER for non-covid reason because of fear of getting the virus, and some hospitals are closing off ER unless it’s for real emergencies, and some states stopped visitations, that’s why some hospitals are empty outside. mild covid patients are isolated at home and serious cases are sent to the ICU. the ship is to provide safe care for patients who don’t have the virus, so that they don’t contract it at the hospital.
