NYC hospitals using refrigerated trucks as temporary morgues

The FEMA has deployed 85 trucks to NYC to serve as temporary morgues as the death toll from the coronavirus grows. The additional truck space could double the capacity of city morgues, upping it from 3,500 bodies to 7,000, NY’s Medical Examiner’s Office said. The last time that NYC deployed a fleet of makeshift morgues outside hospitals was in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Totally irresponsible and immoral for press to put photos of the dead being wheeled into morgue... It'sa sacred time of deep sorrow n displaying such sensationalizesand exploits the deep personal pain of those who have lost loved ones...the photos unnessary to put story out

One thing troubles me about all this reporting is a lack of any contrast. How many people die in New York on a average day? How many have died in total since they reported the first death attributed to the CCP virus. Without such context you cannot judge the risk from normal activity.

The county with New York city in it has about 40000 cases 1/5 the entire US. assuming the death rate is ~1.7 (As it is in most states). that is 680 deaths estimated for that county alone over the last 2 to 3 weeks.
