Covid-19 Second Wave

Covid-19 Second Wave

As we keep going through uncertain times, we must consider the possibilities of a second wave of COVID-19 and all that comes with it. One of the biggest problems we have been facing is the lack of preparation for a problem of this magnitude and at American Mortuary Coolers & Equipment, we want to provide our services to help minimize the load in case of having a second wave of the pandemic that can potentially be more devastating.

Today we are going to talk about the importance of having the right structures in case of the virus coming back with more power than it did before.

Mortuary Coolers For Any Situation

At the beginning of the year, we worked with the Cook County in Chicago to make sure that the health situation would not worsen in the case of a surge. With more than five million people living in the county, a mortality rate of 2% would have been devastating for morgues, and hospital retention coolers used to hold bodies before they are embalmed and sent to their proper final rest location.

The problem comes when there are not enough mortuary coolers or beds to make sure that the diseased individuals are kept under the right conditions before they are sent off to cemeteries, burial grounds, or cremation facilities. This can add to the already complicated problem that we are dealing with by adding an extra level of complexity to the health crisis since when bodies are not treated promptly or are not kept under the right conditions, the decomposing and prolonged body exposure can bring an even bigger problem like the spread of the COVID-19 virus and some other minor problems which is the last thing we need, no matter how minuscule the problem could be.

Who Can Benefit From Solving This Problem?

At the end of the day, is the entire community that benefits from having the right structures and solutions to deal with this problem — anything in our power to curb or diminish the horrendous effects of this pandemic will be a positive outcome.

Although, simply having the right mortuary coolers or structures is not enough. There’s the need for having the right staff to make sure that these facilities are being kept up to standard and working properly and this requires the involvement of hospitals, the health department, medical examiners, and other health care practitioners.

At American Mortuary Coolers & Equipment, we want to extend a hand and make sure that we are doing everything in our power to create better structures in order to combat the possibility of a COVID-19 surge.

Preventive Steps

If you are part of a public or private health institution or organization, you know that the better prepared you are for a health crisis, the smoother the transition from overwhelming to manageable to under control becomes.

While we are not 100% certain that a second COVID-19 wave is coming, there’s a high probability that it will happen and we must be prepared this time.

Building a new structure to be used as a mortuary cooler or individual units can benefit the entire process in the case of a tragedy. Also, having the right equipment and the right amount of equipment can exponentially reduce the stress of the professionals that deal with this line of work.

The products offered by American Mortuary Coolers & Equipment are of the highest quality and, with the right maintenance, can stand the test of time. It is very important to consider this situation as the first step into creating a solid foundation for the future in case misfortune hits — it’s easier to to have the right setup and structure than having to lament not having taken any actions when a difficult situation is upon us.
