The South Coast AQMD therefore issued an emergency order on Sunday, which lifts the limitations on crematoriums for at least the next 10 days in order to help with the backlog of bodies filling up mortuaries and hospital morgues due to deaths caused by the Wuhan virus. News of this comes after it was reported that LA was reportedly gearing up for the "worst conditions" of the pandemic.

As of January 15, more than 2,700 bodies were being stored at hospitals and the coroner's office, according to the order.

The agency said the regulation was lifted to officials could handle a "backlog" of bodies of people who have died in LA County during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Just a few weeks ago, Los Angeles County reported that their ambulance vehicles were under strict orders on what situations require transporting individuals to emergency rooms and which ones do not. There are 7,597 Covid-19 patients now hospitalised in the county with 22 per cent of them in intensive care, Xinhua news agency reported citing the Department as saying in a statement.

"The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has confirmed that the growing backlog of cremation cases within the county constitutes a threat to public health", it reads.

The Los Angeles County became the first in the United States to surpass 1 million Covid-19 case since the onset of the pandemic early a year ago, local health officials said. The surge has further strained a healthcare system stressed by shrinking intensive care unit bed capacity and medical staff availability. That same day, public health officials announced its first confirmed case of the more transmissible coronavirus variant, though said they believed it was already spreading in the community.

The situation in Los Angeles County is eerily similar to the state of affairs in Bergamo, Italy, a year ago - a city just northeast of Milan, located in Italy's Lombardy region, which became the epicenter of the nation's - and Europe's - coronavirus crisis. Another surge of cases and deaths is expected following the holidays.

On Monday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, California became the first state to surpass 3 million total cases.
