‘Corpses, corpses everywhere’: Bodies pile up in Russian morgue

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT – ‘Corpses, corpses everywhere’: Bodies pile up in Russian morgue

A Russian medical worker posted footage of dozens of bodies piled up in a morgue in the Siberian city of Novokuznetsk, 300 miles from the border with Kazakhstan. The recording comes as coronavirus cases rose by a record 17,000 in one day amid a second wave gripping the country.

“Corpses everywhere, corpses, corpses,” the man can be heard saying as he gives viewers a tour of a corridor and dissection room that is typically used for post-mortem examinations, but is instead being used to store bodies.

At least one body is not in a bag, and has simply been laid under a blanket, with the legs poking out from underneath.

The local health ministry in Kemerovo region confirmed the authenticity of the video, saying:

“Due to a delay in the release of the bodies, about 50 bodies of the deceased were stored here.”

Russia has registered some 26,050 deaths from Covid-19, but Demographic forecaster Alexi Raksha hints at a cover-up, claiming the true total should be “multiplied by three.”
