“Worse Than War”: Italian Army Convoy Removes Coffins From Overwhelmed Town

Reuters has confirmed widely circulating which shows a deeply disturbing apocalyptic and dystopian scene of a large convoy of military trucks removing bodies from a town in northern Italy which has been devastated by coronavirus.

Local government and morgue facilities in the town of Bergamo, northeast of Milan, have been overwhelmed by the number of cases and deaths.

“Italy ordered the army to move bodies from a northern town at the center of the coronavirus outbreak where funeral services have been overwhelmed as the government prepared to prolong emergency lockdown measures across the country,” Reuters reports.

The local newspaper Eco di Bergamo was among the first media outlets to publish the footage, which also went viral on social media.

Some 60 coffins were transported to crematoria outside the town on Wednesday night alone, the Italian newspaper reports:

Army vehicles brought numerous coffins, about sixty, from the cemetery of Bergamo to the crematoria of other regions where there are municipalities that have made themselves available to accept them.
