Cadavers – US Agency requests 100,000 Pouches for corpses from the Pentagon

The leading U.S. disaster response agency has asked the Defense Department for 100,000 body bags as the death toll from the coronavirus increases in the country, the Pentagon said Thursday.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) made this request after White House experts said Tuesday that deaths from the disease in the United States, currently more than 5,100, could ultimately range from 100,000 to 240,000, even taking into account current mitigation efforts.

The Defense Logistics Agency “is currently responding to FEMA’s cautious planning efforts with a request for 100,000 bags to address fatalities on behalf of state health agencies,” said Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Mike Andrews.

With infection rates and deaths on the rise, especially in New York City, President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that the country must prepare for “a very, very painful two weeks.”

“I want every American to be prepared for the difficult days ahead,” he said.
