Original Message MEISSEN, Germany (AP) — The caskets are stacked three high in the Meissen crematorium's somber memorial hall, piled up in empty offices and stored in hallways. Many are sealed with plastic wrapping, others are labeled “infection risk,” “urgent” or simply “COVID.”

January 12, 2021

A surge of coronavirus deaths in this corner of eastern Germany has boosted business for crematorium manager Joerg Schaldach and his staff, but nobody is celebrating. “The situation is a little bit tense for us at the moment,” Schaldach said as another undertaker's van pulled up outside.

The crematorium would typically have 70 to 100 caskets on site at this time of year, when the flu season takes its toll on the elderly. “It’s normal for more people to die in winter than in summer," said Schaldach. "That’s always been the case.”

Note the article remarks on the number of caskets expected due to the flu season. The actual number now, with the pandemic, is much higher.

So much for people who were conjecturing coronavirus deaths are just the usual flu victims.... if they were, the figure would stay the same, wouldn't it?
