Mississippi Asks Feds To Send Military Hospital Ship

CBS News reports:

Hard-hit Mississippi has requested the federal government send a military hospital ship such as the USNS Comfort, state health official Jim Craig said Wednesday.

The University of Mississippi Medical Center has 127 COVID-19 patients, including 26 children, Dean LouAnn Woodward said Wednesday.

About 90% of them are unvaccinated, she said. The dean warned, “The Mississippi hospital system will fail within the next five to seven or 10 days if the current trajectory continues.”
