According to reports, Sweden is now reporting as many as 100 deaths from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) per day, with a total death count of around 800. The total number of cases of the virus have also breached 9,000, with patients overwhelming hospitals in areas like Stockholm, the country's capital.
Not only are there too many patients in some areas for hospitals to handle them all, but the bodies are stacking high in some places. Morgues and crematoriums, sadly, are unable to process the bodies quickly enough to make room for the additional ones that are coming in, which is putting strain on the country's resources.
"The big bottleneck is our mortuary that is not designed for such a large city that we are in," stated Katarina Evenseth, the funeral director in Gothenburg. "It is then important for relatives to arrange the funerals so that the deceased become coffin-bound and thus can come over to the cemetery administration."
As for the ice rinks and refrigerators, Evenseth indicated to media sources that these are "working great" to handle the influx of corpses. And in the ice rinks specifically, all they're having to do is place the coffins right on the ice.
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, talks about what he describes as the "non-scandal" of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) death certificates:
Nearby in the United Kingdom, there's also a reported shortage of space to store the dead bodies of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) patients. In at least one instance, a local military hangar was actually transformed into an icebox to make room for more of them.
Keep in mind that the UK has some of the most extreme measures in place to handle the crisis, including social distancing and widespread lockdowns. In other words, these measures aren't necessarily impacting the situation in the way that authorities are claiming.
Meanwhile, the United States is continuing to battle the novel virus with similar extreme measures, and is also having trouble keeping up with the processing of corpses.
As you may recall, some 45 mobile tractor-trailer morgues were deployed to New York City alone last month in preparation for an uptick in deaths. Multiple Navy hospital ships have also been deployed, one to New York City and one to Los Angeles, to help alleviate the pressure on land-based hospitals.
Over in Germany, the government there has imposed one set of rules for Germans and other Europeans, and another set of rules for "migrants" and "refugees," many of whom aren't following social distancing and other imposed measures.
Visitors are no longer even allowed in Germany, unless, of course, they're sent from Middle Eastern countries as "asylum seekers" who supposedly need to be taken in under humanitarian designations.
"People die by the tens and low hundreds each day in Stockholm, and yet their morgues cannot handle this?" asked one Zero Hedge commenter. "This is ridiculous."
"What this exceedingly mild pandemic is exposing is the excessively complex and overpriced funeral process in 'advanced' countries, with their absolute denial of this ordinary facet of existence," commented another. "Death, burial, and cremation are hedged about with absurd legal requirements that essentially prohibit the rapid disposal of corpses."
