The US government's primary disaster response agency is requesting for 100,000 body bags from the Defense Department, according to a Bloomberg report published Wednesday.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reportedly requested the body bags through an interagency group for "prudent planning," which also includes "mortuary contingencies," an agency spokesman said.The military's logistical support agency didn't have a delivery date for the bags from FEMA, one person with knowledge of the situation told Bloomberg, though the federal agency made it clear it wants them as soon as possible. The Defense Department will reportedly supplement parts of the request from its own stockpile of 50,000 body bags, and will purchase more in the future.
