However, the death toll in the United States was as high as 60,481 on Wednesday afternoon, with confirmed cases of COVID-19 exceeding 1,000,000.

A FEMA spokeswoman told it Wall Street Journal from the beginning of the coronavirus response, the agency has focused on a ‘worst case case national scenario’.

“To meet the most unfavorable demand models, FEMA initiated a wide range of acquisition contracts to expand available inventories and produce more human waste bags for future requirements, if needed,” she said.

The supplier, a small company in California, is expected to deliver the bags Monday, as contract data shows.

Earlier this month, the Department of Defense said FEMA had requested 100,000 civilian body bags. The latest purchase is unrelated to that request, the agency said.

The FEMA spokeswoman said the agency had already distributed the Department of Defense contract bags to hotspots in the United States, with the specific allocation for each location determined by death rates and requests from the state.

She clarified that the newer orders are to prepare “when there is a fall resurgence [of coronavirus]Or if FEMA is required to respond to other disasters.

The agency took charge of coordinating the pandemic response six weeks ago from the U.S. Health and Human Services. Since then, FEMA has signed over 100 contracts for items such as personal protective equipment, COVID-19 test kits and food bank diapers.

In the US, more people have now died from the coronavirus than from American lives lost in the Vietnam War.

Since some state governors have gone on to reopen businesses, scientists have warned that stopping closures too soon could cause new waves of COVID-19, which will not be defeated until an effective vaccine is developed and made widely available.

A prominent model used by the White House to predict the trajectory of the coronavirus outbreak increased expected deaths by August to 74,000 on Monday.
