She told me about videos they are sharing on WeChat of body bags crammed with four or five people, including babies and children.
Can your neighbour's friend's firend's wechat friends provide any actual video footage of 5 people including children and babies "stuffed" in a body bag?

As far as I know, and also the professor of ICU in Lombardy recently interviewed on UK Channel 4 (see page 133 ) this virus spares children.

But share any video proof of babies and children and adults, 5 of them, in a body bag designed for one.

Scaremongering baseless gossipy drivel.

Is it really so difficult to think of a plausible reason why, if there are “body bags stacking up in China”, it may be so??

Do you think your average Joe who works in a morgue, funeral home or whatever, but who has to deal with dead bodies for a living might, you know.... given the media hyperventilating over what will probably just turn out to be yet another variation of the seasonal flu, will actually be turning up for work?
Now if they are short staffed or as I suspect, have no staff, then who is going to shift the daily supply of deceased?

I suspect there are quite a few cases where things are “stacking up” because staff are simply not turning up to work.

But yeah.... scary stories in the media and China being well known as a controller of information can only lead to one conclusion!

Major events in the US cancelled. Houston Rodeo cancelled today. In the middle of the event. South by Southwest in Austin, cancelled. All future NBA games suspended after tonight’s game. Apparently a player has the virus.

All this in the middle of Spring Break where thousands of kids are let out of school looking for things to do.
