Drone footage shows coffins being lowered into mass burial site.
The death toll from the coronavirus continues to rise and images have emerged of coffins being buried in a mass grave in New York City. Hart Island has been used for more than 150 years by city officials as a burial site for those with no next-of-kin, or families who cannot afford funerals.
Also on the programme: we hear about the drive-in cinema being converted for church congregations; and the 82 singers who are putting on a virtual version of composer Handel’s Messiah.
