A Coronavirus truck used to store dead bodies may now end up delivering your food. According to a Thursday article by the New York Post, the FDA has said that the trucks can go back to hauling food when they are no longer needed.

Based on the coronavirus truck update, the FDA released a “grim handbook” on how to convert the truck back to food hauling, “even if blood or other bodily fluids leaked inside.”

The process stated that all of the trucks will need to be “thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.”

For trucks contaminated with blood and bodily fluid as long as the material contacted by the fluids can be cleaned, the trucks are good to go.

It is not clear if all of the trucks used to store bodies were carrying bodies with coronavirus only or not.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, additional refrigerated storage is needed for human remains,” the eight-page document said, emphasizing that the guidance is a recommendation, not a requirement.

“Refrigerated food transport vehicles and refrigerated food storage units used for the temporary preservation of human remains during the COVID-19 pandemic subsequently can be safely used for food transport and food storage under certain circumstances.”

How comfortable are you with meat being delivered in through these trucks?
