‘Death’Santis’ – 14 portable morgues headed to central Florida amid ‘unprecedented’ COVID-19 death


Raw Story: The novel coronavirus surge in Florida shows little sign of slowing down, and hospitals are continuing to struggle to keep up with the massive influx of patients.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 14 portable morgues are being driven into central Florida as hospitals have run out of room to store dead bodies.


“The number of deaths right now is unprecedented,” Lynne Drawdy, executive director of the Central Florida Disaster Medical Coalition, tells the Orlando Sentinel. “What we’re hearing from the hospitals is that the death count right now is higher than it ever has been.”

Raul Pino, a health officer in Orange County, tells the Orlando Sentinel that the morgues are not just an ominous sign for the present, but for the weeks to come.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has defiantly refused to implement any restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, and he has banned schools from implementing mask mandates while also barring private businesses from requiring proof of vaccination among employees and customers.

  1. There comes a time, as we see now, that we need a public health statute to be able to remove Governors who are a imminent danger to public health, from office. I have been writing that what needs to be done probably will not be until the body pile gets big enough. And then there is the risk of the health care workers starting to throw in the towel, not wanting to work on the front lines when no one has their back.

    • Hi Jim, not to give in to the hype. Maybe I am speaking to the choir, but really, do people expect nurses to continue to continue with their Hippocratic oath when doing no harm means doing harm to themselves for those who purposefully do harm to everyone around them? trouble will come in the next, much larger wave. As a health care worker (x-ray tech) I can say what nurses do every day is beyond my capability.

  2. It is the case where, there is an urgent need for a doctor, and the people come from all around to rush forward into danger to save lives. Then when the doctor finally arrives he is running from the transport to get to the patient. At that moment , the people are cheering, hurray hurray, the doctor is here !!!,…. and just then, a self serving politician, sticks out his foot to trip the running doctor, and beats him him on the head with a pipe, as his loyal guards protect him. And the injury to the people is both physical and psychological. Confronted by the people, the politician steps up to the mic and says. “Ay forgetaboutit.”
