The outbreak of Coronavirus continues worldwide, due to which the number of deaths of people is also continuing. Last year, a large number of people lost their lives in New York City, United States, when the Kovid-19 was at its peak. The situation here became such that there was a shortage of land in the cemeteries to bury the dead. Thus, the New York administration began placing the bodies of dead people from this deadly disease in refrigerated trucks. Unfortunately, even after a year, the bodies kept in these refrigerated trucks are still waiting to be buried.
About 750 bodies are kept inside trucks
According to a local media report, a city council health committee admitted last week that around 750 bodies of people who died of a Corona infection are housed inside trucks parked on the side of the Brooklyn waterfront.
Most bodies will be buried in Heart Island
According to a news website, officials are now trying to reduce the number of these bodies. Most of the bodies are being planned for a burial in Hart Island. Heart Island is a cemetery that is over a mile long. It is called the largest mass cemetery in the United States. It has been used for years to bury the poor and unclaimed dead bodies of the city.
Officers trying to contact families
Dina Maniotis, the acting deputy commissioner of the Medical Examiner's Office, allegedly told the health committee that her office is trying to contact the families of those who died of the Kovid-19 disease. The burial of these dead bodies in Heart Island will start as soon as their families get permission.
