Exclamation USNS 'Comfort' docks in NY. Crowds ignore social distancing to see it dock

Yup so NYC residents are idiots? That is pretty much the only conclusion I can draw from some of the photos. There are multiple news sources reporting on this story.

Apparently Mayor deBlasio, in a singular moment of clarity and logic, order the police to disperse the crowds after seeing the story develop live on the media. This action was unexpected because deBlasio and his administration, as late as mid-March was resisting social distancing moves, encouraging people to use the subway, and refusing to close the schools or order any sort of lock-down.

So yeah New York, you really don't understand social distancing rules at all. No wonder the city is such a mess and leading the world in Covid-19 cases. Proof that NYC is #1 ... in Darwinism

Just one of many articles => https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...rk-harbor.html

What happened to lockdown? Disbelief as CROWDS gather to watch 1,000-bed Navy hospital ship USNS Comfort arrive in Manhattan to assist with coronavirus outbreak - as Mayor de Blasio warns people may be fined $500 for not staying home


Crowds gathered to watch the USNS Comfort, a Navy hospital ship with 1,000 beds for patients, arriving in New York City to alleviate the strain on the city's hospitals as it continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic - despite being warned to stay at home.

The ship arrived at New York Harbor on Monday morning. It will welcome patients who do not have coronavirus but who still need care in order to clear out the city's other hospitals for those who have tested positive for COVID-19.

It came as the death toll in New York City hit 790 and more than 36,000 cases were recorded. New York City is the epicenter of the virus in the US.

The USNS Comfort came to New York City after 9/11 to help care for some of the thousands wounded. That was also the last time the city saw as many makeshift morgues in the street to cope with the death toll of the virus.

On Monday, crowds gathered near Pier 90 to watch the Comfort arrive.

They gathered despite Mayor Bill de Blasio warning that he may start fining people $500 if they are seen breaking social distancing guidelines in public.

At a press conference on Monday, he said what was needed was 'battlefield medicine' and that Sunday, April 5, was 'D-Day'. He is asking for more help from the government by then.

You can't fix stupid but you can dull it with a bat or shoot it if it gets too close.

Our Governor just implemented a travel ban into the state. We have enough stupid people already here without importing more from New York.
