Italy's fleet of the dead: Military trucks transport scores of coronavirus victims' coffins to be cremated as footage from one hospital shows infected patients lining the corridors The column of army trucks brought the dead out of Bergamo last night in what Italians have called 'one of the saddest photos in the history of our country' (the trucks are seen left and top right). The cemetery in Bergamo can no longer cope with the mounting death toll in the city, where more than 4,300 people have been infected and at least 93 have died. Mortuaries are full and crematorium staff have been handling 24 bodies a day, including the regular drumbeat of non-virus deaths, meaning the bodies of virus victims have had to be dispatched to neighbouring provinces (pictured bottom right, coffins laid out in the crematorium church). The pews of the crematorium church have been removed to leave space to lay out scores of coffins but more have been arriving every day. .
