📍NEW: Chilling video of El Paso jail inmates hired to move bodies of #COVID19 deceased patients into mobile overflow morgues. Inmates wear full PPEs & paid $2/hour. They’ve been doing this tough work since Monday, before El Paso increased to 10 mobile morgues. I cry for El Paso.
3) More photos of inmates loading the #COVID19 deceased under supervision of sheriffs. These inmates were only supposed to work weekdays, but now needed to work weekends as well.
4) count them - **10** refrigerated trailers for mobile morgues. They are piled up outside El Paso’s medical examiners office because the backlog is just that huge to process. https://twitter.com/drericding/status/1325682118320660480
6) And then there is sadly this horrifying testimonial of what is happening at an El Paso hospital (UMC El Paso), according to traveling nurse. This video is real. Details in 🧵 https://twitter.com/drericding/status/1327481868200124416
7) I’m just an epidemiologist who been doing updates a long time, but we often get lost in statistic & forget each body is a person & love one & a life lost. Our doctors & nurses can only do this for so long before they even start to crumble from PTSD. I’m worried for our HCWs.
