A building in the National Interest Market (MIN) Rungis complex, in the southern suburbs of Paris, has been transformed into a temporary morgue on Monday. Footage shows its exterior and a security checkpoint.
The decision to use the complex was made in order to relieve the regional funeral services overwhelmed by deaths related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Rungis market is considered among the largest wholesale markets in the world.
More than 8,000 people in France have died from COVID-19, as the country reported over 90,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus.
