While we may have had significant issues, they are not ongoing. And while we're having ongoing issues, they are hardly significant. So today we can report that we are not currently experiencing any significant ongoing issues with a lack of morgue capacity. As of now.
 
2021-09-20 8:13:00 PM  
The morgue capacity is fine, they just have an abundance of dead bodies. Totally different thing.

Kenny can shove the bodies in that half built pipeline he borrowed 3 billion to build.

When temporary capacity challenges happen, AHS engages with funeral homes to ease pressure on our hospital morgues. Funeral homes have ample capacity in the zone to assist AHS with the transfer of the deceased.

--------------------------------------​----------------------------

Sounds like a classic supply chain problem - they just couldn't offload the bodies fast enough.

I had to SS the GIF to read the RIP on the cardboard boxes.

Honestly, I can't believe someone bothered to Sharpie it on.

It's just something that you shouldn't have to say. Like 'hey man, nobody has placed a bomb under the chair you're sitting in. It totally won't explode when you stand up'

I am now wondering who put this bomb under my chair and why they would do such a thing.

/ I know what I did ( ._.)
 
2021-09-21 2:41:08 AM  
You see, they have no more morge capacity but they don't see that as a significant issue because no one is dying outside while waiting to get in.

So Alberta has like 80+% of eligible people vaccinated and 92% of the most vulnerable population vaccinated including boosters rolling out. I don't doubt that this is someone responding to an untrue rumor and very flatly stating that they are not in fact out of space.

From the next tweet down:  "did experience some temporary capacity issues over the weekend"

Since that's the official version, I'm guessing "clusterfark pile of dead bodies."

Just Covid. Turns out that not getting vaccinated and having big summer social events spread the disease. Who knew?

Isn't the real problem that Alberta has is due to many of the living bodies?

'We've doubled our morgue throughput' isn't exactly a comforting statement coming from any hospital.

Under other circumstances, I'd consider being told "We have plenty of space for more dead bodies" a threat.

There are clusters of extremely low vaccination rates, though:

https://globalnews.ca/news/8194264/al​b​erta-low-covid-19-vaccination-rates/

"Just 23.8 per cent of eligible people in High Level have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to Alberta Health. ... The Municipal District of Taber and County of Forty Mile have similar rates. In the County of Two Hills, 42.9 per cent of eligible people in the region have received at least one dose of the shot; 39.1 per cent are fully vaccinated."

As a serious TZ fan, I must point out that fine lady with the blonde hair in that episode had some great 60's jugs.

The fun part was reading the rest of the thread and realizing that tweet's operative words were "significant" and "ongoing," as they had "some temporary capacity issues over the weekend" and this, bizarrely, was their way of trying to reassure the fine residents of the province of Alberta that they can drop dead in comfort knowing that their corpses will be properly stored prior to their final deportment.

Heckuva job, Kenney. It's fun to watch you try to shut a barn door that burned down & blew away as ash long ago.
