New York to temporarily bury bodies in park due to full morgues

New York has announced it might start temporarily burying victims of coronavirus in a park because the city's morgues are almost full.

The chairman of the city council health committee said morgues were now dealing with "the equivalent of an ongoing 9/11" as COVID-19 spread.

"Trenches will be dug for 10 caskets in a line," Mark Levine said on Twitter.

"It will be done in a dignified, orderly - and temporary - manner. But it will be tough for NYers to take."

Hospital morgues - which typically hold around 15 bodies - are full, so 80 refrigerated lorries have been sent to hospitals but they too are close to capacity.

Funeral homes are overwhelmed and the city's cemeteries cannot process burials fast enough.

Mr Levine added: "It's not just deaths in hospitals which are up. On an average day before this crisis there were 20-25 deaths at home in NYC.
