During the COVID-19 pandemic, crematoriums in the heart of Italy’s plague must operate 24/7 because of the huge number of death. There is almost no place left at the morgue at two hospitals in Bergamo city in northern Italy because there are too many coffins. In the newspaper, they increased the number of pages for obituary column to 5 times. The Italian military must use military trucks to transport coffins from the Bergamo city to farther cremations because of the overload.
On the evening of March 18, a convoy of more than 10 military vehicles carried 61 bodies to 12 cremation sites around the Bergamo city. The mayor of Bergamo wrote letters to nearby towns and ask them cremating the bodies. He said the ashes will be returned to Bergamo city. The city’s crematorium was operating at full capacity 24/7 but could handle only 25 bodies a day. Funeral services in the city were also overloaded. Many coffins are stacked at the hospital morgue and morgue of the cemetery. The mayor said the actual number of deaths could be higher than in the report. Bergamo is the city most heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city hospital has been crippled, and many government services have been badly affected.
