Confusion in SOP for the dead


MUCH has changed for the living in terms of the Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP), but unfortunately the rules remain almost the same for the dearly departed.

I recently lost an aunt, who suffered a heart attack at home three days after she finished her Covid-19 quarantine period. Her remains were taken away from her house and a Covid test was conducted. When her remains tested positive, she was wrapped up in a body bag and her coffin was sealed off. Her death was then classified as due to Covid-19.
