Madrid to use ice rink as morgue for coronavirus victims

Preparations were underway on Tuesday (March 24) at a Madrid ice skating rink to be used as a makeshift morgue for coronavirus victims.

Palacio de Hielo mall, home to a 1,800 square metre, Olympic-sized ice rink, has offered its venue as a morgue after the municipal funeral home announced it would stop collecting bodies from Tuesday due to a shortage of equipment.
