Birmingham Airport could become coronavirus mortuary for up to 12,000 bodies

The military have been drafted in to build the makeshift hospitals and mortuaries.

The Ministry of Defence has established a 20,000-strong Covid Support Force to deal with the crisis, with the majority of troops coming from logistic and medical units of the Army’s 101 Logistic Brigade.

A Birmingham Airport spokesman said: “Birmingham Airport can confirm that it is working with the authorities to provide land and a hangar for a temporary mortuary site at the Elmdon side of Birmingham Airport, to support with the Covid-19 pandemic. 

“This mortuary is anticipated to accommodate the deceased from across the region, including those not related to Coronavirus. Birmingham Airport will do its utmost to support this multi-agency response during these difficult times.”
