EL Paso Orders More Trailer Morgues To Cope With Pandemic


As health workers admit they are exhausted and have never seen these pandemic numbers before. The state has ordered more trailers to add to its half a dozen mobile morgues. This is an ominous sign as it says they expect deaths to increase and those hospital facilities can’t cope. The numbers are truly horrific, especially for rural small towns. That never had the facilities to cope with a pandemic of this severity in the first place. It has left them at the mercy of luck and fate as opposed to a logical and planned medical response and availability. Where this goes in the next couple of weeks is anyone’s guess. With all 50 states now reporting rising numbers, the only sure thing is that cases are going up.

Better preparedness is a must. Otherwise, this will be classed as a crime and not without cause.

Christopher is the head of the Crimes and Accidents News department. He’s a third-generation New Yorker with a passion for journalistic objectivity. Christopher (always "Christopher", never "Chris!) grew up living every kid's dream: his father owned a comic book shop in East Brooklyn. But don't presume that the heroic characters in spandex were the ones who made him fascinated with the Crime vs Punishment concept. Christopher was more interested in the non-superhero comics like Tank Girl and Maus. In the 8th grade he already knew what he was about to do in this life, which was investigative journalism that he would later successfully study in Columbia. Christopher then returned to New York to work as a stringer. Those adrenaline-filled times were equally nerve-wracking and amazing; the only thing that made him settle down was marrying his beloved wife of 10 years. Crime reporting remains Christopher's specialty and biggest passion. That, and not being called "Chris". old@regionalusa.com
