The US Navy Hospital Ship Comfort is expected to soon dock in New York City.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke about the coronavirus pandemic as the ship approached its dock.
"If you wait to prepare for when the storm hits, you lose because it's too late," he said.
Remember: The ship is not expected to treat coronavirus patients. Rather it will be used to relocate shore-based patients undergoing treatments that are not coronavirus-related in an effort to help ease the burden on hospitals.
