Based on a recommendation from the Infectious Diseases Committee, the Government ordered a ban on exhumation and re-burial of Covid-19 victims for a year after their death.

The Government adopted a protocol about the burial of deceased patients, which includes the wrapping, transportation and the type of sealed caskets that can be used for burial. Families will be allowed to exhume the body, and rebury it if they require, but only after a year has lapsed.
