Of Covid-19 and cremation of the dead

Cremation is a method of the final disposition of a dead body through burning. Cremation may serve as a funeral or post-funeral rite and as an alternative to burial.

Just like funerals, strict standard operating procedures are also required in performing the cremation for Covid-19 patients who lost their battle against the coronavirus.

At Bliss Crematorium in Shah Alam, workers are donning personal protective equipment (PPE) as they carry out the process.

The process is much simpler than funerals - two workers will handle the casket from the hospital into the burning chamber and one will prepare the disinfectant for the sanitisation work before and after completing the task.
