"This is not true, according to Abrazo Health and Maricopa County.  'Adequate morgue space' Abrazo hospitals have "adequate morgue space," according to spokesman Keith Jones.  The state has asked all hospitals to implement their emergency plans to prepare for possible COVID-19 overloads. Part of Abrazo's plan is to make sure there is enough morgue space, so the hospital system proactively ordered refrigerated storage in case of a surge of COVID-19 patients, Jones said. "At this point, it is not needed," Jones said" https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/phoenix/2020/07/10/abrazo-hospitals-have-adequate-morgue-space-despite-phoenix-mayor-claim/5418150002/ Its just prep kinda like the makeshift hospital that was taken down because it wasnt needed.
