USNS Comfort - part 1

People were crowding the main gate each day of the clinic hoping to be the first one in. It always took some time before the gates could be opened.

What the team wanted was for everyone to stand in line. Some people complied. Vendors were also in the area selling food and water to the people standing in the long lineups.

A few medical personnel are watching the crowds at the gate.

People were in line already since 3:00am in some cases. It made for a long day for these people.

People in Haiti are desperate for medical care. Several people came without a card hoping that they would be let inside too.
