Mangaluru, Jun 28: Residents of Bolar here on Sunday June 28 vehemently opposed the burial of the body of a youth who died of coronavirus in the city.

The 31-year-old man died of coronavirus earlier in the day.

It was initially decided to bury the body at the mosque cemetery in Idya. However, as the pit that was dug for burial had gotten inundated with water, the mosque authorities requested the officials to take the body to Bolar cemetery.

However, when the body was brought to Bolar by the district officials as per protocol, the locals in the vicinity of Bolar mosque, who reportedly had no connection to the mosque, put up stiff opposition to the burial. The locals pressured the officials to bury the body at Suratkal mosque cemetery instead. 

The locals told the officials that they had no objection to bury anyone who died of coronovirus within the Bolar area, but objected to any coronavirus victim being brought from another place to be buried in their vicinity. 

District administration officials tried to convince the locals for three hours to let them conduct the burial, with the body remaining in the ambulance all the while. The officials relented and agreed to take the body back to Idya.

However, on the assistant deputy commissioner through the officials intervened in the matter and asked them to bring the body back to Bolar. The officials finally managed to convince the locals, with assurance that the pit would be 12 ft wide and all precautions would be taken. Thus assured, the residents allowed the burial to be conducted, sources said. They also warned the officials that they would not allow any more non-Bolar residents to be buried there in future.

    What a disgusting news again from the so called educated district!!! How low level people can reach n acts like mad dogs!!!

    Authorities must educate these kind of people that dead person can't infect others unless anyone come directly to the contact physically before sterilization of it..Before it is ready for final rites medical staff conducts sterilisation and packing g it with full coverage so that there is no risk of infection..

    Shameful act of Bolarians !!!

    People should understand that the dead body does not sneeze , cough or breathe.Fear and panic about Corona should go away.Respect the living and respect those who passed away.What happened to someone can happen to you.

    All WHO brainwashing not to be buried, no post mortem, need to be cremated. If post mortem allowed by this time proper cause for the death and medications to avoid it could have found out by medical fraternity. All because of WHO's communist leaning and their agenda of depopulation and wreck the economy of countries for communist control of the world this is happening.

    If buried one fine day it can be exhumed for post mortem that WHO seems doesn't want. BTW so many people got sick and recovered they didn't become threat to the society so how could a buried dead body in cemetery create problem. Open ground burial at least have problems like someone may dig up there for some reasons.

    John, you are 💯 percent right. If Covid was so dangerous everyone in the above picture would be on ventilators tomorrow. This is totally fooling the public by WHO. People have to take it to streets. The sad truth is Indians are a bunch of fools. They don’t want to think, but simply act on somebody’s information.

    WHO did not insist cremating and did not prohibit autopsies, only suggested precautions to be taken in care of autopsies. Follow the link, read and understand....

    Nothing wrong in burying or cremating, best option would be electric crematorium.

    I don’t need to listen to media or go through the link you sent me. I use common sense and believe what my heart tells me. Why is the world waiting for vaccine if millions are cured without medication?! WHO is a puppet of BG. One guy argued with me and says BG is a philanthropist and doesn’t need more money. So I asked him what is the need for him to go to backward countries and stay with slums and vaccine them in his late 70s. We have to worry about the vaccine and not COVID Think think before it’s too late.

    You go by your head or by your heart is your choice.

    But then there are facts, and there are beliefs too. Also there are people who badly wanted to hold on to certain wrong beliefs that they become facts to them. These set of people have a wrong notion that what they think is common sense, whereas their thinking is devoid of any sense. These people are the descendants of those who killed Galileo for believing in Heliocentric theory, because at that point of time, the heliocentric theory was against the established beliefs of geo-centric theory.

    ICMR is following WHO guildlines, no invasive means no opening up deceased body as normally done.

    No invasive techniques be adopted for autopsy of COVID-19 patients: ICMR document

    "As per the procedure of conducting forensic autopsy, the "dissection of bones and tissues will generate aerosol which may lead to spread of infection. On the basis of same along with external examination, multiple photographs and verbal autopsy (as depicted by WHO)...the post mortem should be conducted strictly avoiding any invasive surgical procedures and avoiding splashing of body fluids contact for staffs, body handlers and doctors conducting post mortem."

    People should be a little more educated.
    The virus will not spread from a dead body unless you touch the body fluids especially nasal and oral.
    Burial definitely buries the virus.

    Citizens are mortally petrified, when Covid19 pandemic patients are diagnosed in their respective wards... worse they are blown out of their minds, when they learn about plans to burn or bury those bodies, in their respective areas..... Authorities should now consider the option of " Sea Burial " as the perfect way, to avoid any
    confrontations with locals !!!!

    I believe there was a confusion with few early deaths due to corona and it was clearly mentioned that boloor crematorium would be used for people dying due to this deadly virus. Then why change location every now and then.
    Stick to electric cremation for all who die due to this virus...let it be the same rule for all. Y differentiate?
