Some families in New York still haven’t received possession of the their loved one’s bodies.
New York City has reportedly stored close to 750 COVID victim bodies in refrigerator trucks on the Brooklyn pier.
The bodies have been there for over one whole year!
I’m sure there wouldn’t be any need of any refrigerator trucks being used for morgues if Gov. Andrew Cuomo didn’t send thousands of COVID-19 patients to Nursing Homes.
The set up was supposed to be only temporary but being New York is led by Democrats it’s no surprise that their has been major delays in the bodies being buried.

The Daily Mail covered the messy situation in New York:
New York City has stored the bodies of 750 coronavirus victims in refrigerated trucks parked on a Brooklyn pier for up to a full year – with some families ignoring requests to reclaim their relatives’ remains.
The ‘disaster morgue’ was set up on the 39th Street Pier in April 2020 to aid funeral homes that were overwhelmed with the number of funerals and cremations needed.
Dina Maniotis, executive deputy commissioner of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, said the set-up was always meant to be temporary, according to the New York Post.
Maniotis told the City Council’s Committee on Health during a meeting on Wednesday that officials will try to reduce the number of bodies being held ‘in the very near future.’
‘We will begin to notify all the families that we’ve been working with that we are now going to ramp our operations down slowly, give them the time that they need, and we’ll keep the operation going as they need it,’ she added, according to the Post.

The New York Post got the scoop also:
The bodies of hundreds of New Yorkers are still sitting in a refrigerated morgue on the Brooklyn waterfront more than a year after the COVID-19 pandemic hit the Big Apple.
The remains of about 750 people are in long-term storage in the specially designed disaster morgue that opened in April, a medical official told a City Council committee meeting on Wednesday.
The facility was set up to give families extra time, but the arrangement was always intended to be temporary, said Dina Maniotis, executive deputy commissioner of the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office.
“In the very near future, we will begin to notify all the families that we’ve been working with that we are now going to ramp our operations down slowly, give them the time that they need, and we’ll keep the operation going as they need it,” Maniotis told the City Council’s Committee on Health.
Remember in the beginning of the pandemic Cuomo was going on air boasting how well New York was handling the pandemic?
Well now maybe those same liberal networks that were inviting him on their shows should ask him why so many dead bodies having been sitting in freezers for over a year in his state.
Knowing Cuomo he might even have some sinister plan to sell off the organs for profit.
