LOS ANGELES (April 20, 2020)– Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Sudan Roache, from Severn, Md., stores N95 masks in casualty receiving aboard the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) April 20. Mercy deployed in support of the nation’s COVID-19 response efforts, and serves as a referral hospital for non-COVID-19 patients currently admitted to shore-based hospitals. This allows shore base hospitals to focus their efforts on COVID-19 cases.

One of the Department of Defense’s missions is Defense Support of Civil Authorities.
