But I wanna see the big boat!

The USNS Comfort was sent to NY to help provide extra beds for non-corona hospital patients. It's here because NYC is the epicenter for the covid-19 in the US and the city is running out of ICU beds to treat them.
But being NY, people are silly. Despite all the warnings and orders for social distancing, people gathered in large crowds to watch the ship arrive. The best way to avoid the corona virus is to stay away from other people, yet people ignore that to go see a ship that's supposed to help ease the pain of the hospitals during this time. Crazy.
