    Not at all. The U.S. is commandeering hospital ships and moving them to desired locations. The problem with additional floating bed space is staffing. There simply aren't going to be enough medical professionals to work these available locations... Nor the necessary equipment to treat patients and protect workers.

    I suppose the sudden big drop in crude oil/fuel prices will help keep those hospital shps "afloat". https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesb.../#5822560c2643
