What a total crock of shit. They're listing almost ALL causes of death as covid deaths simply to jack up the numbers. C/V is the biggest global, psyop-hoax ever perpetrated on humankind. Period!

lol real professional taking a selfie with a corpse in the back. Also he said funerals are not allowed to have more than 10 people and everyone must stay 6 ft apart but George Floyd had hundreds of people attend his funeral and they weren’t 6 ft apart. Big joke.

S.O.P. You cannot embalm a covid positive individuals. There's a law that prohibits infectious disease carrier to embalm. They should go straight to the crematorium.

In March and April of 2020 I went to the grocery store twice a week to limit my exposure time to the possibility of catching coronavirus to 1 hour per trip. I'm 68 years old, so I'm in the high-risk group. I don't drive anymore so I take a bus everywhere I go. Starting in May, the local libraries opened. I live in Florida. The library currently only allows 1 hour per day of computer time in which I can continue doing my ancestry research. That's not a lot of time but it does fit my 1-hour don't get sick restriction. Therefore I go to the library three times a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and the grocery store on Tuesday and Thursday.
Today is July 9th, and I would have thought I would have seen a whole lot of funeral processions to cemeteries for people who died from the coronavirus, but no not a single one. If massive amounts of people are dying, where are the vehicles that are supposed to be taking people to be buried? I don't even know anyone who knows anyone who died from covid-19. This is why I am beginning to think that the pandemic is a scam, just like the gasoline shortage of the 1970's was! Before the shortage gas prices were fifty to seventy-five cents a gallon. After the fake "SHORTAGE" the prices were around $3 a gallon. I also remember the Y2K B.S.
Computers were supposed to crash on January 1st 2000. They handled going from 1998 to 1999, but for some ambiguous reason they weren't supposed to be able to handle going from 1999 to 2000. So the government had to step in and save the day. The computers didn't crash, but they probably would not have anyway. We will never know though.

Ha ha ha ha. When people falling off bicycles and auto crash victims are being labeled as Covid deaths, how the f are any of you not seeing that its all the same deaths as before, just labeled covid. DUH .... *Corbettreport.com
Your ALL welcome*
Damn people, do some research.
These people, even the ones claiming its their relative or even the ones moving the bodies, all are taking the word of 'officials' that these people have/had it at all. WTLF? WAKE UP.

Why is everyone getting mad and accusing death workers of being profit hungry for embalming when it's something requested by family 👀 is it not? That's like saying your plastic surgeon is profit hungry for making money off the boob job you wanted

Embalming is stupid during this time you're not having at three or four or five day funeral there is no reason those bodies need to be embalmed

We laid to rest our grandma then dad one week after we are all in quarantine until July 7th. Work that being said when we go out a mask is a must regardless of the situation you have to wear a mask not only that but you have to sit there and look at your loved ones that is being buried inside your car because you cannot get out until the body is in the ground. It's not a proper burial for anyone we didn't get to say goodbye because the hospital would not let us because he was sedated when he passed the machine was the only thing keeping him alive so we decided that we didn't want him to suffer anymore so we told him to go ahead and take him off the machine hoping that he would come out of it but within five minutes he passed away he had been in there for almost a month Grandma passed natural in her bed she was not sick from the virus she was never around anyone with the virus you never left the house but even with her we still had to wait until she was buried well she was put in the mausoleum in the wall so we had to wait until she was put all the way in there and then we could go in and see her it sucks because you can't see your loved ones before they go you can't open the body bags because of the virus it just sucks for the whole world because right now we're losing loved ones and we can't even say bye to them. Be safe love from SC💖

Government should really try and step up ramping up PPE production, especially now that people are defiantly going out without masks. I'm a nurse and, even though the shortages have been lessening nowadays, it can go south again really fast with an already expected second wave. I'm personally fine taking care of Covid patients IF my colleagues and I are provided with PPE, especially N95s and face shields.

So since the 1 deathcare worker puts a piece of cotten in the dead persons mouth so whatever may be inside the dead persons lung wont come out??? Wouldn't that mean these deathcare workers are transporting contaminated dead persons? I am not so sure this story is factual. I don't think these guys would be qualified to transport such a dead person. Justa thought.

My god! You shouldn't be holding funerals for them, in the Philippines they cremate the bodies immediately after death. No wonder America's covid death cases are rising so fast! You've got to change it up. Holding a funeral puts more people at risk of getting the virus. C'mon America!

Every country has their own way of dealing with passing of an individual. Respect their beliefs just as you would want them to respect yours. There's no easy way to deal with this issue..
