The 5-minute and 32-second clip posted to YouTube shows medical officials helping to load the corpses in body bags into the mobile morgue outside of Brooklyn Hospital Center in Fort Greene, according to a man shooting the clip who does not identify himself.
“This is for real. This is Brooklyn,” a man filming the terrifying occurrence can be heard saying in the video.
“They putting the bodies in the 18-wheeler…this is no joke…this is Brooklyn Hospital,” the man says as he begs for people to “stay inside” as the deadly virus continues to pummel the city.
The trembling man continues, “This may make you want to take this serious.”
New York City’s hospitals have been completely overwhelmed amid the outbreak of COVID-19.
Makeshift morgues have been set up outside of other overburdened Big Apple hospitals, including Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan.
Last week, two refrigerated trailers were seen at the site at 30th Street and the FDR Drive, along with a customized RV labeled “MOBILE COMMAND CENTER — MEDICAL EXAMINER.”
Coronavirus-related deaths in the city rose to 776 Sunday night after nearly 100 people died from the virus in a 7-hour span.
