Ad Feedback

The U.S. military is flying critically injured Haitians to the U.S. Navy's floating hospital, the USNS Comfort.

Some of the wounded are facing 12-day waiting lists at both clinics and hospitals back on land. The group, Doctors Without Borders, has warned there could be outbreaks of diarrhea, respiratory tract infections and other diseases in the thousands of overcrowded camps.

Meanwhile, the Navy is adding 350 more crew members to its hospital ship to deal with the demand. They are also increasing the number of beds and operating rooms on board.

Watch the CBN Newschannel Tuesday for CBN News Correspondent George Thomas' report from aboard the USNS Comfort.
