UK lorry driver gives harrowing insight into the logistics behind coronavirus

A lorry driver in the UK explains how during the coronavirus pandemic he is delivering freezer trailers to various parts of the UK.

Similar freezer trailers have been used as temporary mortuaries at hospitals in some parts of the northeast.

Bodies of the deceased are placed within the freezing trailers until funeral arrangements are made.

The driver explains in the video: "So in the 22 years since I passed my HGV class one, I’ve delivered a lot of things over the years.

"From wood and steel, timber, clothes, I’ve even done supercars and I’ve done blood for the National Blood Service.

"But today I’ve got a job, it’s a bit bittersweet is this job ‘cause today I’m not delivering any goods I’m delivering an empty trailer.

"And these trailers are going… well, I’ll let you make your own conclusions, but this trailer is a refrigerated trailer.

"To be more precise it’s a freezer trailer and we’ve got hundreds of these to collect and take to various parts of the country.

"I’ll let you make your own conclusions [on] what they’re going to be used for and what’s going to be stored inside them.

"You need to take the government advice and be safe, stay in the house, don’t pass on this virus.

"This is one job I really don’t wanna do, but it’s a job that needs to be done now, so just please be safe, thank you." The filmer later told Newsflare that the trailers will be fitted with racks for bodies.
