Hey I got a serious question,

With all the people dying from the coronavirus atm, like say in NYC, what is the government doing with the bodies? Do they store them, until the coronavirus dies inside them, or do they just get sent back to the family? Can the coronavirus live inside you after you die and spread some how? 馃槼

From interviews I鈥檝e heard with family members, they have virtual funerals. I鈥檓 not sure how that鈥檚 arranged, but one family lost three members, and you can鈥檛 bury them yourself. It may be handled differently in different places, but you don鈥檛 get the body back.
My friend who works at a hospital here on Long Island (next to NYC) says they keep bringing in refrigerated trucks.

@Lyss23 oh jeeze, do they just park the trucks somewhere outta the city? Till further notice?
@SimpleJess She said they have parked them around the hospital. They are trying to load them respectfully, so they don't have bodies piled up on top of each other.

@Lyss23 hopefully they can keep up, they are probably already digging more graveyards huh, tbh that might be a good gig to get into during this lol

Virus still bred and duplicate inside dead body,they stock pilling inside frozen truck before send to creminate to save from countless back and forth trip to cremotorium for hundreds of death per day.

The virus depends on living organisms. I can't see how the dead pose much threat. They're not going to cough or sneeze on you, and I can't imagine you would get close to them anyway.

Ebola is still viable after death. We don鈥檛 know enough about Covid-19, so best to take precautions. @uncalled4

@Carissimi Ah, thanks for the clarification. It's true that we don't know everything about this beeyotch.
Carissimi61-69, F
Yes. This is why families were infected with Ebola. They insisted on taking the body and burying it themselves, and the infection spread this way. I鈥檝e heard this Corona virus is in every cell of the body that鈥檚 why vital organs fail with the critically ill, so it makes sense that the whole body is infected, at least for sometime after death, especially as the body releases gasses. @uncalled4

Here in the UK they've said unless you already have a plot regardless of religious beliefs they are cremating.

@Daisy50 my mom has a plot
SimpleJess22-25, F
@Daisy50 it has to be done though, for the safety of others that's if y'all get it though, I don't think you will, just tell her to get a similar world's account as well, it's like a second community " plug intended " 馃槼
