A video shows an hospital in the U.S is being flooded with bodies due to coronavirus.

The video clip showing the bodies on the floor in a hospital is from Guayaquil in Ecuador and not from an hospital in U.S.

A tweet by Ecuador Video states that the clip showing the body bags, having bodies of those who died due to COVID-19, lying across the floor was from Ecuador.

A post by a twitter user named Carlos Vera, where he questions the authorities on how exactly were they planning on cremating the bodies of the dead, confirms that the incident was from Guayaquil, which is the largest city in Ecuador.

An article by Daily Star also confirms that the video clip is from Ecuador and the video was filmed by a nurse at a Spanish-speaking hospital.

Hence, it can be concluded that the circulating video of bodies lying placed on the floor as a result of deaths due to COVID-19 was not from the United States.
