The stress on New Jersey funeral homes from Covid-19 deaths is so overwhelming, that the state has now ordered 20 refrigerated trucks that will be capable of storing over 16-hundred bodies. The move has been made to prepare for what health officials say could be a surge in Covid-19 deaths across the state in the coming days. Governor Murphy says the state now has over 1,000 people who have died from complication of the disease.
