The local government launched an immediate investigation after Ákos Hadházy, an independent representative, published a video about the conditions in the morgue there.
“A dramatic video came to me showing that there are so many dead in the Szentendre morgue that the corpses simply cannot fit. In a shocking and merciful way, the coffins were not covered, as the dead would then reach the ceiling, ”the MP wrote around what he saw in the video, i.e. . Ákos Hadházy stated that recordings from previously overcrowded hospital morgues had reached him, but they were already so disturbing that they could never be made public – even if they expressed more than anything about how much trouble was going on. “The late, chaotic and dilettant epidemic protection, the already incomplete capacity of health care and the propaganda cosmeticizing reality together caused one of the most serious epidemic situations in Europe in Hungary, even according to official data,” he wrote. While we were there, the scene of the police and the municipal police was still going on. The head of the cemetery business did not want to comment on our paper. At the same time, the head of Interwork Kft., Zsolt Simon, explained to a local newspaper that the condition in the morgue was caused by a pandemic. “It’s just shocking for those who don’t work in this industry, I don’t get stuck either when I go into a restaurant’s kitchen,” the company manager told the paper. According to him, the dead are stored in accordance with the law, elsewhere much more serious videos could be made, and the reason for the whole thing was that it was a long weekend, holidays. At the same time, according to our professional sources, cold storage in an open coffin is clearly a merciful, professionally, ethically unacceptable procedure, although it does not violate written legislation. It was also said that between the two holidays, administration of the funeral was virtually shut down. This, as well as the additional deaths caused by the coronavirus epidemic, could have caused the dead waiting to be cremated in the Szentendre morgue, as well as in the hospitals between the two holidays. According to funeral experts who told our paper, mortality jumped by 40 percent or even 80 percent in November and December. Due to the viral situation, a lot of chronic patients also stayed at home or did not get to the hospital for treatment, so they ended up dying in their home. The bodies of those who have died at home, if the district doctor sees no reason for further pathology, will go straight to the morgue. Relatives should then be summoned here to identify the deceased before the funeral and then seek permission from the authorities. The latter may have stalled due to the holidays and the viral situation.
