DHS places $5.1M order for body bags, wants to acquire 100,000 human remains pouches this coming week

Why does the government need 100,000 body bags in such short order if we haven't even used the ventilators they've ordered? What are they really preparing for?

MONTEBELLO, Calif. (INTELLIHUB) — The U.S. government has awarded a California-based company a $5.1 million contract to supply the Department of Homeland Security with 100,000 body bags by this coming Monday.

NBC News reports:
Around the same time it wrote the contract for the body bags, FEMA opened up bidding to provide about 200 rented refrigerated trailers for locations around the country. The request for proposals specifies a preference for 53-foot trailers, which, at 3,600 cubic feet, are the largest in their class.

What is the federal government gearing up for?

Will these 100,000 additional body bags be used specifically for COVID-related deaths or will they be added to the national stockpile like the ventilators and dust masks were?

Will these 100,000 Human Remains Pouches be used at some later date/event? Is that date/event known by our government?

What justifies the lockdowns and military deployment worldwide?
