Bodies of COVID 19 victims must be buried within 24 hours — Government says

Families affiliated to Coronavirus patients will have to bury bodies of their kin within 24 hours.

Chief Government Patholohist Johansen Oduor while appearing on media, said that families failing to burry within the stipulated period will have loved ones buried at the nearest cemetery by the Government.

However, the government will provide logistical support to families that decide to ferry diseased family members to their ancestral homes in the upcountry.

Among other guidelines, the government pathologist announced that embalming would not be conducted to any of the deceased, inorder to safeguard mortuary attendants from contracting the virus.
