NYC morgues near capacity, DHS briefing warns

The Department of Homeland Security has been briefed that New York City’s morgues are nearing capacity, according to a department official and a second person familiar with the situation.

Officials were told that morgues in the city are expected to reach capacity next week, per the briefing. A third person familiar with the situation in New York said some of the city’s hospital morgues hit capacity in the past seven days. And a FEMA spokesperson told POLITICO that New York has asked for emergency mortuary assistance. Hawaii and North Carolina have asked for mortuary help as well, and the disaster response agency is currently reviewing the requests, according to the spokesperson.

If the available morgue space in New York City fills up as the number of COVID-19 deaths increases, federal help will be available, a former senior administration official said, noting that the George W. Bush administration sent mortuary assistance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the Sept. 11 attacks.

The Department of Health and Human Services oversees the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Teams, which can help set up temporary morgues. The teams operate in response to requests from local authorities.

For now, city officials do not seem especially alarmed. Aja Worthy-Davis, a spokesperson for the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, said concerns about morgue capacity may be unfounded. OCME’s morgues can store up to 900 bodies across all five boroughs, she said.

“We have the ability to expand pretty dramatically,” she said. “If you look back at what we did during 9/11, we have the ability to create mobile stations that allow us to house bodies if we run out of space.”

New York City has not dealt with mass casualties at the rate as Covid-19 in recent memory, however.

“All hospitals within the city tend to have small morgue spaces, so it’s possible that with the capacity of hospitals in New York City, there may be an expectation … that they’ll run out of morgue space,” Worthy-Davis added.

Strange, I thought New York City was full of rich, intelligent coastal elites? 



NYC’s Disappearing Neighborhood Hospitals

Since 2000, nineteen hospitals have closed across New York City and protesters are now fighting to stop the twentieth closure.

August 19, 2013

Community members held an all-night vigil Sunday to protest the planned closure.

Reverend Herbert Daughtry, 82, said, “The absence of this hospital means that people will have to go distances for medical attention.”

Thus far, Governor Andrew Cuomo has not expressed sympathy for hospital staffs and residents losing easily accessible medical care, and has said he is unwilling to bail out failing hospitals.

Kaiser Health News notes that most of the hospital closings have occurred in relatively poor communities, while a handful were in affluent areas but served as “safety-net” facilities, because local residents who were wealthy and insured favored other facilities farther away.

[...]

New York applied to the federal government a year ago for a Medicaid waiver that officials hoped would net the state $10 billion through better care management, some of which going towards bolstering and modernizing Brooklyn’s healthcare system. But almost a year later, Albany has received no money from Washington. In May, Governor Cuomo went so far as to send a plea to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

“Due to a rapid deterioration in the financial status of essential components of the health care services system in Brooklyn, if nothing is done within the next 12 months, the outcome will be disastrous,” Cuomo’s letter said. “Without the waiver, at least four hospitals—having among them nearly one thousand inpatient beds and supporting hundreds of thousands of emergency room and ambulatory care visits—will be in danger of closing.”

Alan Sager, a professor of health policy at Boston University, calls the phenomenon of the dwindling neighbourhood hospitals “medical deserts.”

Sager notes that the decline in hospital beds comes at a time when the baby boomer generation has begun to age, and will most likely need hospital care.

“We may look back in 10 years and say, ‘How could we not have seen this coming?’” Sager told the Star Tribune. “Keeping open a hospital today is going to cost a lot less than rebuilding at $3 million a bed.”

The freezer sections of the supermarkets are just about empty.  Use those.  The body bags might remind people that this shyt is serious.  Although I might not want to buy food from freezers with body bags in them.  Especially if they died from "The Virus".

Fuq it.  Nuke China.  It's the quickest way to bring manufacturing back to the US.

It's amazing that those hospitals were viable for decades and yet now in the supposedly prosperous era of globalism and mass third-world immigration, there now isn't enough money to keep them running.

I'm still waiting for Phildo the retard to show us this "net gain".

You think immigration is responsible for hospitals closing?

You should seriously think about repeating 6th grade.

AYRTS?

Illegals are responsible for emergency rooms being flooded.  Normally emergency rooms around here are packed with illegals. Illegals do not pay their hospital bills. 

I'm in an area with few CV cases and suddenly just this week the emergency rooms are empty because the people that normally flood them are staying away in fear of catching CV.

Where did all those so called "emergencies" go?  Oh they just stayed home.

Notice how the floating virgin avoided the question?  Phil, you dumb queer, how come there was money to build those hospitals and they were able to operate for decades, but now, in the supposedly prosperous era of globalism, mindless population growth (it's not like these hospitals shut down because NYC became a ghost town), more supposedly hard-working diversities paying taxes and this incredibly immense GDP you tedious hebrews keep raving on about, there isn't the money to keep these places open?

Why not act like a dignified white man for once in your wretched worthless hebrew life and answer an honest question?  cornlol
