COVID Crisis Resurfaces In China : Crematoriums Are “Extremely Busy”

Untitled design 12

The number of COVID-19 cases has seen a rise in China. Reports suggest that the authorities are in process of dealing with a huge number of bodies. Several crematoriums are running out of space. It has also been noted that the government has a lack of information on the cause of such fluctuations in the cases. 

As the rest of the world is in process of moving on from the deadly virus, the Chinese government is still in process of opening up after nearly three years of continuous lockdowns and restrictions.

While talking to a news agency AFP, staffers stated that the number of bodies they have been picking up in the last few days is much more than what they did before. 

We are very busy, there is no more cold storage space for bodies… We are not sure (if it is related to COVID), you need to ask the leaders in charge.” stated the staffer.

“It’s three or four times busier than in previous years, we are cremating over 40 bodies per day when before it was only a dozen or so,” another staffer added. 

The report stated that several vehicles were seen waiting in line on the outskirts of Beijing. However, the authorities are yet to find if the reason is the rising number of Covid cases or a staff decline in crematoriums. 

A Rush to install hospital beds

The authorities in the country are busy installing more hospital beds across the national capital. The reports have stated that the community which has been shielded for so long was left open and that has caused the situation to become worse. 

“We know that any time the virus is spreading, that it is in the wild, that it has the potential to mutate and to pose a threat to people everywhere. We’ve seen that over the course of many different permutations of this virus and certainly another reason why we are so focused on helping countries around the world address COVID, another reason why bringing this to a close in China would be beneficial,” said US State Department spokesperson Ned Price.
