    Gravediggers in Sao Paulo Brazil.

    One of my Top 10 Favorite Cities.

    Bodies exhumed in São Paulo to make room for Covid victims

    The biggest city in Brazil has ramped up efforts to empty out graves at one of its main cemeteries to make space for COVID-19 victims as deaths continue to soar at a staggering rate.

    The decision to clear out 1,056 bodies from the old tombs came after the southeastern state of São Paulo registered record daily burials last week.
    The decomposed remains were placed inside large bags before the personnel at the cemetery transferred them to another location.
    Gravediggers gathered last Thursday at Vila Nova Cachoeirinha cemetery in São Paulo, Brazil, to exhume remains from tombs as part of an order from the state to make room victims of COVID-19 who will have to be buried. The state reported a pandemic record of 9,350 people who were buried in March after succumbing to the ravaging virus

    Relocating remains is standard in cemetery operations, said the municipal secretary responsible for funeral services, in a statement. But it has taken on renewed urgency as Brazil suffers its worse coronavirus wave since the pandemic began over a year ago.

    On Monday, Brazil's health ministry registered its highest daily COVID-19 death toll for São Paulo with 1,389 state residents dying from the virus during a period of 24 hours.
    No other state in Brazil has been impacted worse by the coronavirus pandemic than São Paulo, which has reported 77,165 deaths and 2,532,047 cases.

    The South American nation's COVID-19 outbreak is the second-deadliest in the world after the United States, with 332,752 deaths and 13,013,601 as of Tuesday.

    Brazil has averaged about 3,000 deaths and 75,500 new cases per day over the past week - a rate that has climbed steadily since February.

    São Paulo has also resorted to late-night burials to keep up with demand, with some cemeteries authorized to stay open until 10pm.
    At the Vila Formosa cemetery, workers in masks and full protective gear were digging rows of graves under flood lights and a full moon last week.
    Coffins containing the bodies of victims who lost their battles with COVID-19 followed. A 32-year-old man was lowered down in a plain wooden box. Masked relatives gathered near the grave of a 77-year-old woman, before she too was lowered into a grave.

    A total of 9,350 São Paulo residents who died of the coronavirus were buried in March - an increase of 56% from the previous month.

    The previous high was 8,368 people buried in May 2020.
    The city of Sao Paulo closed the month of March by registering 419 burials on Tuesday, the most since the pandemic began. If burials continue at that pace, city hall said it will need to take more contingency measures, without specifying.

    Brazil currently accounts for about a quarter of COVID-19 daily deaths worldwide, more than any other country.
    Infectious disease experts warn that it will only get worse, given President Jair Bolsonaro's attacks on efforts to restrict movement and a slow rollout of vaccines.

    1,389 died of Covid in a 24 hour period in Sao Paulo which appears to be a larger number than all Flu deaths in Sao Paulo in an average year.

    Maybe check to see when their flu season falls while you’re at it. I don’t think it’s this time of year.
    Doesn’t play well with TROLLS...

    Ohhhh. Got it. So what you're saying is COVID is a lot worse than the flu is. For the record I agree, just trying to get a read on the room.
