NYC dead stay in freezer trucks set up during spring COVID-19 surge: media - Global Times

The bodies of hundreds of people who died in New York City during the COVID-19 surge in the spring are still in storage in freezer trucks on the Brooklyn waterfront, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

Many of the bodies are of people whose families cannot be located or cannot afford a proper burial, the city's Office of Chief Medical Examiner was quoted as saying. About 650 bodies are being stored in the trucks at a disaster morgue that was set up in April on 39th Street Pier in Sunset Park.

Officials at the chief medical examiner's office said they are having trouble tracking down relatives of about 230 deceased people.
