Horrifying footage of bodies being moved into refrigerated trucks have surfaced online, amid the coronavirus pandemic which has taken 37,612 lives all over the world.

A clip posted on YouTube shows body bags loaded into a truck outside Brooklyn Hospital Centre in Fort Greene, New York City.

The 5 minute footage, which was taken by a bystander, shows medical officials helping to load the bodies, reports New York Post.

“They putting the bodies in the 18-wheeler … this is no joke … this is Brooklyn Hospital.”

Upon opening up the truck he says: “There’s bodies in back … bodies up there, piling up.”

The United States, with over 161,647 confirmed case of COVID-19 - the illness caused by the virus - has the most cases globally.

In New York, health officials are planning to collect blood plasma from people who have recovered from coronavirus and inject the fluid into other patients.

The US state's governor Andrew Cuomo announced two experimental medical interventions – the blood plasma transfusions, and another involving antibody testing in order to send survivors back to work.

He told reporters: “There have been tests that show when a person is injected with the antibodies, that then stimulates and promotes their immune system against that disease.

"It's only a trial. It's a trial for people who are in a serious condition, but the New York State Department of Health has been working on this with some of New York's best health care agencies, and we think it shows promise, and we're going to be starting that this week."
