Last Coffin Passes through Temporary Morgue in Barcelona Garage

BARCELONA, Spain — A funeral home in Barcelona has closed a temporary morgue it had set up inside its parking garage to handle the overflow of victims of the Spanish city’s coronavirus outbreak.

The last coffin was removed and buried on Sunday.

The home said more than 3,200 victims of COVID-19 passed through the temporary morgue since it was set up in March.

The funeral home installed refrigeration units inside its closed parking garage to condition it to hold the deceased in their coffins. The home plans to reopen part of the garage for parking but keep the refrigeration units in place in case they are needed again.
