QC government sets up mobile morgue for cremation

The Quezon City government has set up a mobile morgue to accommodate at least 40 cadavers awaiting cremation.

QC Deputy administrator Alberto Kimpo said they have retrofitted a 40-foot refrigerated container van as a temporary storage facility of those who have died of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) or other illnesses.

"We have maximized the space inside so we could give a decent place for the deceased residents of Quezon City," he said.

The bodies would then be turned over to the city-run Baesa Crematorium on Quirino Highway.

"The storage facility is free as well as the cremation for the indigents identified by the social services and development department. Those indigents have been prioritized. If there are others who are not, we could also extend our services," Kimpo said.
