April 26 2021 India is now in the midst of a new outbreak of Coronavirus, with a surge in confirmed cases making crematoriums unbearable and some grieving families forced to cremate their gardens, farms and other places to bury Coronavirus dead.
The government in the southern Indian state of Karnataka has been forced to allow people to cremate or bury their families on their farms, lands or gardens in the hope of easing pressure on crematoriums and gravediggers as the number of Coronavirus dead continues to soar, the Daily Mail reported On Wednesday.
The Chief Minister of Karnataka said the current situation was “out of control” and said that “given the sad circumstances of the moment, it is prudent to dispose of the remains quickly and with respect in a decentralized manner to avoid overcrowding in crematoriums and cemeteries.” ”
British media said seven crematoriums in bangalore, the state, work 24 hours a day because staff are trying to do four times the normal amount of work.
A local construction entrepreneur told the media that his family had to dig up their lawn last week to bury his father. There are fears that things could get worse in the coming days. Senior virologists warn that the current outbreak has two weeks to reach a peak of 500,000 infections a day.
