The number of COVID-19 deaths in Italy have now surpassed the number of COVID-19 deaths in China. The morgues are overflowing with corpses and the military has been deployed to move them to crematoriums.
Dozens of military vehicles have been pictured carrying coronavirus victims across Italy – with morgues too full to hold corpses.
The trucks were pictured driving through the city of Bergamo in the country’s Lombardy region, one of the worst-hit by the virus.
The city has recorded at least 93 coronavirus-related deaths as cases skyrocket.
Around 70 coffins were placed on 30 trucks and will be transported to creamatoriums in a dozen locations across Italy, foreign media reports.
Jean Pierre Ramponi, the medical director of the Chiari hospital in Brescia – also in Lombardy – said: “We prepared ourselves psychologically by seeing the images of China, but it was unthinkable to imagine such devastation.
It is interesting how they are having such a hard time dealing with all these corpses. Especially since Adolf Hitler and the German military were able to kill six million Jews and burn their corpses in small ovens within a very short period of time back in the 1940s.
How is that over 70 years later the Italians are having such a hard time dealing with a much smaller number of corpses? It shouldn’t be this difficult.
Or wait, maybe all those stories about Hitler killing six million Jews is a lie. Just a thought though.
