Creepy pictures from New York City: A video is circulating on the Internet that supposedly shows how corpses are removed from the “Brooklyn Hospital Center” by forklift.
The five-minute clip shows a forklift approaching a refrigerated truck. Then white body bags are lifted over into the truck …
New York is considered the US epicenter of the corona pandemic. Around 800 people have died there as a result of the lung disease, and more than 33,000 are infected. The hospitals are running out of beds.
But is the new Corona shock video really real?
The author – apparently male and a casual passer-by in the car – does not reveal himself. He comments in English: “This is real! 10.40 a.m., Sunday morning. “And:” They put their bodies in a tractor-trailer. No joke. This is Brooklyn Hospital. “
Carriage of corpses by forklift – in a refrigerated truck waiting in front of the clinic? Can that really be?
The hospital has not yet responded to a BILD request regarding the authenticity of the video.
But one thing is clear: New Corona horror reports are coming from New York every day.
A nurse (38) from a Manhattan clinic has posted a photo that shows how corona patients’ corpses are also stored in a refrigerated truck.
The portal “Buzzfeed“Said the nurse: “It’s the terrible reality of what we’re dealing with and where some of us have already landed.”
He had looked after one of the dead from the truck hours earlier. The nurse said the woman (71) had only tested positive a week ago. She died on Sunday night.
According to the city administration, there have not been as many makeshift morgues since the 9/11 attacks. Caregivers who think they are infected with the virus must continue to work until they develop symptoms. The military is also in anti-corona use.
Floating clinic to save lives
A hospital ship arrived in the port of New York on Monday morning (local time) to relieve the hospitals from the coronavirus crisis. The “USNS Comfort”, which moored on the west side of Manhattan, has 1000 beds and 12 operating rooms and can accommodate the first patients within the next 24 hours, the local authorities said.
“On behalf of all 19 million New Yorkers, I say that we are very grateful for what the people of this country have done for us, and we will reciprocate,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
US President Donald Trump was there on Saturday when the ship sailed in Virginia. A second US military hospital ship, the “USNS Mercy”, had moored in Los Angeles a few days ago.
