New York City May Bury Dead in Public Parks
One elected official tweeted that New York City may have to bury its dead temporarily in public parks.
City Councilman and chairman of the City Council's health committee, Mark Levine, tweeted today (April 6) that New York City may have to bury deceased victims of COVID-19 in public parks, according to CNN.
The grim possibility comes as hospital morgues and the refrigerated tractor-trailer brought in for the overflow of bodies, have reached their limits. New York State Governor, Andrew Cuomo, said that although Levine tweeted it, he was not aware of any plans to do so.
"I have heard nothing about that. I have heard a lot of wild rumors, but I have not heard anything about the city burying people in parks. I talked to New York City yesterday. I have not heard that this is an issue." ~ Governor Cuomo via CNN
