Bodies are left to rot on the side of the road as officials struggle to cope with coronavirus deaths in an Ecuadorian city.

At least 150 corpses were left on the street or kept in the homes of grieving relatives in Guayaquil as the deadly bug ravages the horror-struck port city.

The bodies were placed on the roadside in the desperate hope that authorities would be able to take them away but removals take up to three days due to a backlog.

Residents were even forced to use cardboard boxes as coffins as Ecuador's official death toll hit 172 with at least 3,500 confirmed cases.

Health workers in protective gear remove a dead body.

Coffins wrapped in plastic were seen on the pavement as relatives lined up for a funeral outside a cemetary.

Just see what mankind has been reduced to...


-Bodies now placed on the roadside like dirt waiting to be picked up by the waste management team.

-Cardboard used as coffins because the death toll is unimaginable...



Dear Lord, Forgive Us.

MANY PEOPLE IN NIGERIA ARE LAUGHING OVER THIS SITUATION.

-- THEY'RE SAYING THE GOVERNMENT WANT TO DEFRAUD US WITH THE "HOAX", AND THAT THERE'S NOTHING LIKE CORONAVIRUS.
-- THEY'RE SAYING THE CORONA IS JUST ANOTHER FORM OF MALARIA.
-- THEY'RE SAYING THE VIRUS HAS GOT NOTHING ON BLACKS.
-- THEY'RE SAYING WE'RE COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS, AND NO EVIL WILL SEE US IN NIGERIA, BECAUSE WE'RE SPECIAL.

IT IS NOT THE VIRUS THAT WILL KILL US FIRST. IT IS IGNORANCE, AND WORTHLESS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

Leaving dead bodies on the street for three days? That alone will surely aid the spread. May God have mercy on us all.

I saw it on CNN yesterday. It is even more graphic than this. As in, people lose their loved ones, drive far from their homes and dump the body on the streets.

Some patients are even dying outside the hospital because no bed-space to admit them.

We really do not understand the severity of this.

Wow, really serious...

I understand the severity now having read your comment

But, their death toll hasn't got to the level that warrants these...while not disputing, just saying we also need to put in mind how good the whites are at 'playing their scripts'
