Prison workers in full hazmat suits bury rows of coffins of coronavirus victims in Hart Island mass gravePosted on April 10, 2020 by The Extinction Protocol
Workers wearing hazmat suits have been spotted burying caskets in a mass grave on New York’s Hart Island – as the number of burials quadruples amid the coronavirus pandemic and the city’s death toll rises to more than 4,200. A dozen contracted laborers were seen digging and burying the caskets – some of which had names carved on them – on Thursday. The city has used Hart Island to bury New Yorkers with no known next of kin or whose family are unable to arrange a funeral since the 19th century. Typically, about 25 bodies are buried there once a week by low-paid Rikers Island jail inmates. That number began increasing last month as the new coronavirus spread rapidly and New York became the epicenter of the pandemic.
They are now burying about two dozen bodies a day, five days a week, DailyMail.com has been told. Currently, 4,260 people have died from coronavirus in the city and more than 80,000 have been infected. Until now, officials have remained tight-lipped on whether coronavirus victims were being buried on Hart Island. On Thursday, officials said they had no choice but to bury COVID-19 patients at the city’s cemetery as it deals with the mounting coronavirus death toll and dwindling morgue space.
