FTR, the NY Times said they were from FEMA, but who the **** cares?

Can ANYTHING be more irrelevant ?

How can you possibly defend such quibling?

I saw a documentary once about the Spanish Flu of 1919. Some cities quarantined and shut down and had lower death counts.

Philadelphia said, "It's only the sniffles. Business as usual."

According to the documentary, Philadelphians were dying faster than they could be hauled away. The documentary I saw showed stacks of dead bodies on the sidewalks, waiting for transport.

They were literally stacking the bodies in the streets.

Now is someone going to quibble over whether the bodies were stacked on the sidewalk, or whether they were stacked in the streets?

The point is, they were stacking up the bodies because they couldn't keep up with them.

Now, are those trailers from FEMA, the City of New York, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police?

Tell the nice therapist why you think the distinction is relevant.

Maybe one of the truckers here can identify this trailer. Federal? State? Or is it a Penske rental?

Thanks for the link. Very unsafe conditions to work under ...

Quote:
Hospitals around the city are stretched to the limit, handling a constant influx of patients while running dangerously low on personal protective equipment like masks and gowns for doctors and nurses.

The nurse described a horrific Catch-22. “If we are covid positive, we are expected to work for as long as we are asymptomatic. However we cannot get tested unless we are symptomatic,” he said. “They don’t want to test us because, at the rates we are exposed, we are likely all sick and we don’t know it.”

“We are rationed personal protective equipment to absurdity,” the nurse said. He said they were given “one disposable mask and one disposable gown that we must sign out for, that is expected to be used for five 12-hour shifts before they will be replaced.”

...

The nurse described a chaotic situation at his hospital, with ever changing rules. “Everything changes from day to day at work,” he said. “They are scrambling to figure out what to do as we go.”

“A week ago we were instructed to take off our masks at work. Now we are being instructed to wear them at all times because so many of us are testing positive.”

Rental probably. I would expect that FEMA has purpose built reefers with racks for stacking.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was always a reefer parked out there, even before CV19.

In a city of 9 million, a lot of people die every day. The 2015 average was 421 people a day. How big are the hospital morgues?

Probably not huge. Most people don’t die in hospitals, but at home and get taken to a funeral home. Most who die in a hospital likely get released to a funeral home ina. Day or two. I’d imagine it’s a lot slower going these days.

I also wonder if they are holding these bodies for "further" examination?

That's a big no-no in the Jewish and Muslim faiths.
