Disturbing footage has shown thick black smoke running "non-stop" from a crematorium as the coronavirus pandemic overwhelms Mexico City.
In the video report by Sky News, horrifying clips show coffins piling up outside funeral parlours and body bags on trollies filling up unrefrigerated storage rooms.
There is a three-day waiting list before Covid-19 fatalities can be taken to the crematorium, according to the report.
In another clip, crematorium workers in white hazmat suits unpack a coffin which is wrapped in plastic.
Outside the crematorium, coffins pile up after a busy morning and – despite being removed daily – there are already many in the queue to be destroyed.
The fridges are "full" and bodybags have to accumulate on gurneys, according to Sky News.
It's impossible to use the investigation tables in one autopsy room that the TV crew filmed – because there are so many bodies there is simply no standing room.
The official number of coronavirus cases in Mexico is 36,327, with 3,573 deaths, according to statistics from the World Health Organisation published today.
