In the US, due to the corona virus, the situation is getting worse. The outbreak of the virus has increased so much that there is no space left for the dead bodies in the funeral sites. An organization of funeral sites in South California says that they have to return to bereaved families because there are piles of dead bodies and no more remains of dead bodies.
Magda Meldonado of Continental Funeral Homes in Los Angeles said, “I have been working in this field for the last 40 years and I never thought that anything like this could happen.” We have to tell the families that we will not be able to take their family here.
According to data from John Hopkins University, 350,000 people have died due to Covid-19 in the US while more than 20 million people in the country are infected with the virus. Meldonado reported that an average of 30 bodies are being brought daily to Continental Funeral Homes, which is six times more than normal. This is the situation in most funeral sites. Ten thousand infected have died in Los Angeles County, California.
