Crematoriums Make Money Through COVID Bodies

There is fear, mayhem, and confusion all over the country and the situation is no different in the city. There are no beds in hospitals and even if there are, the hospitals are short of facilities. And worse of all, kith and kin of patients are being forced to shell out lots of money for the cremation of their loved ones. 

Media reports are rife that crematoriums that used to charge Rs 500 are now charging anything between Rs 30,000 and Rs 80,000. The charges are being levied in the name of taking extra measures for the burial of bodies infected with the virus. 

And even after shelling out huge amounts, the families lament that they are not getting the care that they are supposed to get. A son who lost his father says that he had to pay Rs 80,000 for the entire process and still did not get proper service. He says he had to wait for hours to perform the last rites. 

The situation is the same in all crematoriums around the city such as ESI crematorium, SR Nagar crematorium, Chanda Nagar, and others. The crematorium authorities say that they need the money to get people to bury the bodies as there is a high-risk factor involved. 

India is recording around 2 lakh cases daily and the deaths are rapidly increasing. Many hospitals are facing a crisis as mortuaries are getting full.
