Trucks Used To Store COVID-19 Victims Bodies May Go Back To Transporting Food

Trib Live

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday that the refrigerated trucks used to store bodies of COVID-19 victims can now be used to transport food.

Since late March—because of the growing number of coronavirus deaths—places like New York have used refrigerated trucks to store bodies outside of hospitals, morgues, and funeral homes.

According to The Post, some of those trucks were dark, dirty, and had dead bodies stacked on top of each other.

Now, the FDA is allowing the truck owners to transport food and other goods in the previously used tombs once the trucks undergo thorough cleanings.
