Coronavirus: Pictures emerge of temporary mass graves in New York as US Covid-19 death toll surpasses 16,500 (Irish independent April 10th 2020)

Classic sensationalism from the Irish Independent. Every day people are buried in mass graves on Hart Island in New York. These were once called pauper burials but are now known as public health burials. If a family cannot afford a funeral, the state will bury their relative free of charge but on the cheap. It happens all over the world and is nothing new and is certainly not a mass grave specifically for victims of Covid 19.
