GHS AND WORLD VISION'S STEPS TO MITIGATE COVID19 INFECTIONS AMONG MORTUARY WORKERS IS RIGHT DIRECTION AND WE SHOULD APLAUDE THIS EFFORT. AS THEIR OWN TESTIMONY INDICATED THERE IS NO RECORD OF INFECTION OR DEATH FROM COVID19 AMONG THIS WORKERS. PERHAPS A REVIEW AND UPDATE OF THE PRESENT PROCEDURES OF MANAGING THE COVID19 VICTIMS IS ALSO PARAMOUNT. THE TREATMENT OF VICTIMS APPEARS TO HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE DEAD AND THIER FAMILIES. HAVING A SPECIAL DESIGNATED AREA IN THE CEMETERY FOR COVID19 VICTIMS AND THEIR GRAVES HAVING NO MONUMENT MARK CALL TO QUESTION, WHY. IN THE UK, COVID19 VICTIMS ARE HANDLED BY UNDERTAKERS AS NORMAL WITH NORMAL SAFETY PROTOCOL. THE BODY IS LAID OUT AS USUAL AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE ALLOWED TO VIEW AND PAY THEIR LAST RESPECT. THE BODY IS TRANSPORTED BY THE UNDERTAKE AND COFFIN IS CARRIED THEIR PAL BEARERS WHO ARE DRESSED IN THEIR NORMAL UNIFORM WITHOUT ANY OBVIOUS PROTECTIVE OVER WARE. THEY STAY AT THE GRAVESIDE UNTIL SOLEMNITY IS COMPLETED AND THEY LOWERED THE COFFIN INTO THE GRAVE. THE CURRENT PROCEDURES IS LIKE ADDING INSULT TO INJURY FOR THE FAMILIES. IT WILL MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO GET A CLOSURE AND IN SOME CASES MAY TO MENTAL ANGUISH AND SUBSEQUENT MENTAL ILL HEALTH.
