About those supposedly overflowing morgues in New York City...

I saw the headline that said morgues are running out of space in New York City, and I thought: "That makes no sense."

Here's one from Weather.com:

Coronavirus Updates: Report Says Morgues in NYC May Be Near Capacity; White House, Senate Agree on Aid Package

As of Wednesday, there were more than 30,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 statewide in New York, according to the New York Times. At least 280 people have died, most of them in the city.

Coronavirus deaths cross 192 in New York City; NYU offers medical students early graduation

So far, since the Chinese virus crisis has started, 192 people in New York City have died from the virus.

According to information I could find in a few minutes of research, in 2015, 153,623 people died in NYC from all causes, or 420 per day.  In 2015, there were 153,623 deaths, to take but one example.  That comes to 420.88 a day with heart disease and cancer as leading causes.  So why the hell would NYC be out of morgue space when 192 people have died this month from the virus?  One hundred ninety-two divided by the 25 days of this month means about an extra 7 or 8 per day.  Even accounting for an exponential rate of deaths, as in a recent day when more than 100 died nationwide, the city still should have capacity, given that that could have occurred over only one or two days at most.

Isn't it time the media did some research and told the public the truth instead of inducing a panic?  It is more pathetic every day.  The agenda is to destroy the economy in order to elect any Democrat instead of telling the truth.  Soon we will be back to racism and climate change, where NYC will soon be under water.
