External morgue in use at Cape Coral Hospital to make room for more bodies

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Cape Coral Hospital is working to make room for bodies in its morgue.

The hospital had six deaths on Wednesday, but the hospital’s morgue can only hold four bodies.

To help keep up with recent deaths, a refrigerated external morgue was placed outside the hospital to store the deceased. It’s unclear if any patients had died from COVID-19.

Lee Health reported 12 COVID deaths this week which is a record for the hospital system.

The vaccine could have prevented these high numbers, doctors said. They’re encouraging anyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.
