The New York Daily News reports:
New York City is so short on morgue space for coronavirus victims that FEMA is hauling in trailers to store all the bodies.
“We are sending refrigeration trucks to New York to help with some of the problem on a temporary basis,” FEMA regional direction Thomas Von Essen said at Manhattan press briefing with Mayor Bill de Blasio Monday.
The city is expecting FEMA to send 85 trucks. Although their capacity was not immediately available similar trailers already in use hold 40 bodies each. The additional FEMA trucks could double the city’s current morgue capacity from 3,500 to 7,000.
