Despite working late into the night, the bodies of COVID-19 victims keep coming in hearses. For the past two weeks, they've put into earth more than 10 bodies a day, up from two previously — a sign of a devastating surge ripping through the Southeast Asian nation, which is now Asia's hot spot with over 80,000 COVID-19 fatalities and more than 3 million confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic.
