The chair of the New York City Councils health committee said on Monday that officials are considering temporarily burying people who die from the coronavirus in local parks.
In a series of tweets, New York City Councilman Mark Levine said that trenches will be dug to hold 10 caskets in a line. The burials will only be temporary, he said, though he acknowledged the gravity of the situation.
Soon we'll start temporary interment, Levine wrote. This likely will be done by using a NYC park for burials (yes you read that right). Trenches will be dug for 10 caskets in a line.
It will be done in a dignified, orderly and temporary manner. But it will be tough for NYers to take.

Dumb as hell.
Obviously they will close the parks to joggers, dog walkers, etc.
Yeah, is it really necessary? Another scare tactic?
Burn piles work, lots of excess Natural Gas, just say’n
More irresponsible Big Media scare-mongering.
Gotta make this look as bad as possible for Trump!!
HAHA! Bury them in Central Park, right under Chelsea’s window.
That is possibly the dumbest idea I have ever heard.
That’s what I’m thinking. He should have tried this one a week or two ago.
Just use the East River, like criminals in the Bronx did in the 70s
So I guess they don’t need the 45 tractor trailer refrigerator trucks delivered last week? Who’s going to pay for that?
Why? People die of the flu every day. Are they tossed in mass graves? What a crock of $hit.
why not cremate ?
What an idiot....NYC has about 150K people die a year, I am not sure with an extra 3K deaths it is even close to necessary to start thinking about this. If deaths spike up, then maybe, but all this is is fear-mongering at this point - which I guess is the whole point.
Even if you had to make contingency plans like this, doesn’t mean you need to go on twitter and start hyping them.
There’s not a meat locker anywhere in the country that can be repurposed?
“NYC considering using parks as temporary burial sites: city councilman..”
New York criminals do that all the time.
Designer news meant to fan the public flames of panic.
Or just leave the bodies by the curb, as was done during the Spanish Flu plague.
Why don’t they just hand the bodies over to the families? Let them take care of them.
