More Cooler Space Demand for Bodies of COVID Patients

(South Bend, IN) - A health care system in the area is worried about running out of space to store bodies of people dying from coronavirus. 


Various media reports out of South Bend reveal Beacon Health Systems is looking for a refrigerated truck to store extra bodies.  The reports indicate at least six people in the hospital system have died from the virus in recent days.


The hospital in Elkhart is among the facilities in that hospital system and the reports show  27 people have died there from coronavirus this month alone.  That’s just two less from the cumulative total COVID-19 related deaths at that hospital from March through September.
