EXTRAORDINARY Times call for desperate measures and now a mobile morgue has been erected in central London to help deal with the Coronavirus pile up.
The death toll in the UK stands at 104 – with that figure set to rise again today.
A council official told The Sun: “The tent will be up today and will be ready by the weekend.”
“We hopefully won’t ever need them. But you saw the numbers of what could happen, so we need to be prepared.”
A Westminster City Council spokesperson added: “We have plans in place to increase the capacity of our mortuary at Horseferry Road as part of a London wide response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.”
“This is a precautionary step and similar arrangements are made during any London wide response to incidents. We hope and trust that this will not be needed but it is sensible to prepare at this stage.”
