A temporary mortuary will be established in the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, as part of the Irish government’s efforts to deal with Covid-19. In a statement, the museum said: ‘While this is, of course, a reminder of the seriousness of this situation, the dignity and solemn beauty of the grounds is appropriate. We think with great compassion and respect for the families of those who may need these facilities in the times to come.’
