New York City Still has Hundreds of Bodies in Freezer Trucks, Months After COVID-19 Deaths

New York City Still has Hundreds of Bodies in Freezer Trucks, Months After COVID-19 Deaths

Mayor de Blasio says new restrictions on businesses will likely happen soon as the mass exodus out of New York City continues.

When this history of the coronavirus pandemic is written, both New York City and the state will feature prominently…as examples of what not to do.

For example, hundreds of New Yorkers’ bodies remain frozen in trucks on the Brooklyn waterfront more than six months after the coronavirus first struck the area.

An emergency disaster morgue was set up in April on the 39th Street Pier in the Sunset Park neighborhood – and it’s there where roughly 650 bodies are being stored in the freezer trucks, the city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed to The Post on Sunday.

Many of the bodies are of people whose families either cannot be located or cannot afford a proper burial, the agency said.

Dina Maniotis, the executive deputy commissioner for the OCME who oversaw the unit’s pandemic response, told the Wall Street Journal that the city was slowly disposing of the remains.

The refrigerated morgue trucks were placed across the city’s boroughs to assist the city’s overstressed hospital system during the first surge in Covid-19 cases. Most of the city’s unclaimed dead are buried on Hart Island, the nation’s largest public cemetery site.

Shocking images from the deadly months of April and May showed footage from a potter’s grave on Hart Island, which the city has used to bury unidentified or unclaimed bodies for more than 150 years, as workers in white protective gear buried bodies in simple wood coffins in deep trenches on the island.

The footage underscored a wider issue of the deaths of marginalised New Yorkers as well as the city’s overtaxes healthcare systems. City officials struck back at reports stoking fears of “mass graves” ahead of surging infections.

Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio is warning that the city faces new restrictions as data shows COVID-19 cases are still rising…and NYC’s struggling businesses are bracing for another hit during the usually prosperous holiday season.

“The restrictions that are coming. I’ve been very overt in the fact that the governor said an orange zone is coming. By our own projections, based on the state data, that will happen soon after Thanksgiving, probably the first week of December,” de Blasio said during a radio appearance.

Those restrictions would include closing indoor dining, gyms, and salons.

Daniel Meyer, a New York City restaurateur and the Chief Executive Officer of the Union Square Hospitality Group, is closing indoor and outdoor dining at Union Square Café as well as of all of his other restaurants.

Currently, the city is offering only 25 percent indoor capacity, and that could be in jeopardy if the city enters the so-called “orange zone.” Under state guidelines, New York City would need a seven-day 3 percent positivity rate for 10 straight days to move into the orange zone.

New restrictions would suspend indoor dining for at least ten days. Outdoor dining would still be permitted, but that’s undoubtedly a challenge as winter approaches.

Many former New Yorkers have to leave a forwarding address for Santa Claus this year due to a mass exodus away from all the restrictions and the crime.

More than 300,000 New Yorkers have bailed from the Big Apple in the last eight months, new stats show.

City residents filed 295,103 change of address requests from March 1 through Oct. 31, according to data The Post obtained from the US Postal Service under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Since the data details only when 11 or more forwarding requests were made to a particular county outside NYC, the number of moves is actually higher. And a single address change could represent an entire household, which means far more than 300,000 New Yorkers fled the five boroughs.

Whatever the exact number, the exodus — which began when COVID-19 hit the city in early spring — is much greater than in prior years.

Imagine how much more our governors and mayors will accomplish once the left seizes power. /smh

You get what you vote for good and…frozen.

THE PERFECT SOLUTION: Everyone who had an income over $2500 per month or higher would have to pay a 50% income tax, retroactive for the past 5 years. Like a covy of quail, New Yorkers would flee, leaving the city to King DeBlazio.

    Everyone in NYC who isn’t on welfare makes at least that much; it’s practically impossible to live on less. For many people their rent alone is that much.

      Big city prices are often outrageous, less demand would go a long way towards fixing that problem.

      The truth is that most American cities economies are based on welfare. How many would be viable if welfare was cut off?

Intuitive restrictive mandates, and the direct victims and collateral damage are progressive.

So when Fuhrer Dumbbozo runs off all the money, who pays the bills?

This is what they voted for. Twice. Now Wilhelm (his real name) is term limited and will be out in a year, unless Satan takes him sooner. The successors the voters have lined up are all to his Left.
Democracy, good ‘n hard.

    Wilhelm is the name he was born with, but he changed it long before he got anywhere near a political career. You might as well claim that Gerry Ford’s “real” name was King and that Clinton’s was Blythe.

“Soylent green is people!”

If 200k Americans have died from Covid19, and the recovery rate is 99.80 then 100 million Americans have already had Covid19.

200000 / 0.002 = 100 Million

they had to make sure they voted before processing them

So What. This is no different than what was happening before. Here is an example in 2014 in WAYNE COUNTY Detroit –

Unclaimed bodies pile up at Wayne County morgue
Wayne County can’t afford to bury bodies left behind by families

Hundreds of Bodies in Freezer Trucks, Months After COVID-19 Deaths

Planned Parent? Or hundreds of thousands after selective-child deaths from Planned Parenthood? Choices have consequences.

These are bodies held in reserve in event more votes are needed.

Right now the “red” and “orange” zones have been revoked, and there’s only a “yellow zone”. But there’s a reason for this. Cuomo hasn’t suddenly seen reason. What he’s seen is a court case coming up, which he’s hoping will be dismissed as moot, whereupon he can reimpose his zones with as little science behind them as the last set.

If there are no police enforcing the law, then vigilantism becomes a moral imperative.

Do you really want us enforcing the laws ourselves?….”

the saddest,….and most frustrating…. thing is that because of the recently compleated census…..New York will have representation….and power….. for hundreds of thousands that no longer live in New York.
and it will be ten years before they will lose that power

Q: Which presidential candidate will NYC vote for in 2024?

A: The question is irrelevant. No one will be living in NYC in 2024.

City residents filed 295,103 change of address requests from March 1 through Oct. 31, according to data The Post obtained from the US Postal Service under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Caution: This would include people who were only away for the summer, or are holing up in their summer homes. It wouldn’t surprise me if the USPS gets 100,000 mail forwarding orders from NYC every summer, as people who can afford it (and it’s not that expensive, considering) spend two months upstate and then come back.

(Though often the wife and kids go for the whole summer while the husband, who has to work, stays home and goes up on weekends. Every summer I see advertising either for full take-away meals, or for buffet-style dining halls run by caterers where temporary bachelors can go sit at a table and have dinner with other men instead of sitting at home and staring at the walls. The sex industry also has a busy summer, or at least so I’ve heard.)

New York City would need a seven-day 3 percent positivity

An invalid and meaningless measure.

Soylent Green is (frozen) people!
