Prisoners wearing hazmat suits and other protective gear have been spotted burying caskets in a mass grave on New York’s Hart Island amid speculation coronavirus victims are now being buried there.

About a dozen prisoners were seen digging and burying the caskets on Thursday as at least one refrigerated truck was brought onto the island.

At least 45 caskets – some of which had names carved into them – appeared to be buried in the mass grave on Thursday morning alone.

Prisoners from Rikers Island are regularly brought over to dig graves on Hart Island but they are normally dressed in their prison uniforms. The majority of those digging on Thursday were dressed in white, head-to-toe hazmat suits amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The refrigerated truck that was brought onto the island is similar to those currently parked outside hospitals across Manhattan as part of makeshift morgues set up to deal with the number of people dying from the coronavirus outbreak.

Authorities have not officially confirmed if coronavirus patients are currently being buried on Hart Island despite morgues overflowing across the city and the death toll continuing to rise.

Currently, 4,260 people have died from coronavirus in the city and more than 80,000 have been infected.

    More exaggerated crap. 4000 doesn’t amount to mass deaths and prisoners are regularly brought over to the island to dig graves??????

    What a giant steaming pile of shit this story is. It is no different than 99% of the “story’s”, emphasis added, on the net currently!!! The last time I checked we have giant excavators sitting all over the country. They are even sitting in rental yards by the droves. You want to see mass graves then you should have been in Desert Storm along with me. First clue…..we didn’t dig mass graves for Saddams dead soldiers by hand!!!
