Italy: Crematorium Running Out of Space, May Be Forced to Stop Accepting Coffins

A crematorium in Piacenza province in northern Italy considered halting the reception of coffins after it became overwhelmed by daily requests. The region has been one of the hardest-hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Footage filmed on Friday shows the premises where all spaces including the farewell room have been used for provisional storage.

“At the moment we receive an average of 25 coffins a day but we can manage only 12. Obviously, this situation creates an abnormal amount, bringing us to an emergency phase making us very likely to halt for a few days in order to be able to recover some space,” said the manager of the crematorium.

He added that the crematorium was receiving bodies from the neighbouring regions.

“It is the same problem that Bergamo had and exactly for this reason, we are receiving the coffins from all across central and northern Italy. They do not have any more provisional spaces for coffins,” he said.

According to data provided by the Italian Civil Protection on Thursday, 41,035 people were infected in the country with 3,405 deaths from COVID-19.
