Ind. (WNDU) - Beacon Health System is in the process of getting a refrigerated truck to store bodies for an expected increase in deaths from COVID-19.

According to Dr. Michelle Bache, the VP of Medical Affairs at Elkhart General Hospital, the morgues cannot handle the increased number of bodies.

She also tells 16 News Now that this is not the first health care system that’s in the process of getting one, and they expected this to happen.
