The spread of coronavirus in the state of New York alone has reached catastrophic proportions. For more than a week, a mortality record is recorded there daily. This is not in any country in the world.
This is reported on Friday, April 10, by the BBC.
Over the past 24 hours alone, the number of people infected there has grown by 10 thousand people, thus reaching an indicator of 160 thousand. For comparison, in Italy the total number of infected – 143.6 thousand, in Spain – 157 thousand.
Against this background, work on Hart Island in Long Island Strait does not subside. The island, with an area of 53 hectares, is known for the fact that it has been used by the New York authorities for mass graves of the homeless and those who simply do not have relatives or the ability to pay for the burial for a century and a half. If before the epidemic, funerals were held there a maximum of once a week, but now work is stopped there only on weekends.
Earlier, News Front reported that in one of the closed hospitals in New York, which contain exclusively patients infected with COVID-19, the mortality rate is 25%. The staff of the institution spoke about the lack of mechanical ventilation devices, as well as specialists who can properly connect patients to the system.Americans massively demand COVID compensation from China
