The State already exceeds Spain in the total number of confirmed cases of Covid-19

The huge mass grave opened for victims of Covid-19 on the island of Hart, in New York, this Thursday. On video, aerial images of the pit.

On Hart Island, east of the Bronx, New Yorkers have died since the nineteenth century without being claimed. They are buried by poorly paid inmates, as it is the Department of Prisons that runs this public cemetery. Normally, 25 bodies are buried on average a week. But now, since New York has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, it is those same 25 corpses, but every day.

This has led to the decision to dig two new graves “in case they are needed”, as confirmed in The New York Times a spokeswoman for the Department of Prisons. Additionally, a Covid-19 outbreak in the city’s main jail has forced more workers to be hired to perform the jobs.

New York is today one of the global epicenters of the pandemic. On Friday morning the number of confirmed cases in the State (19.5 million inhabitants) reached 159,937, already exceeding the total number of cases in all of Spain (157,022 confirmed cases, 46.9 million inhabitants). The total of deaths in the State this Friday was 7,067. In the last three days, more than 700 deaths with Covid-19 have been registered in the State alone, most of them in New York City.
