Rules clarified for cremation of bodies of Corona patients

 Ludhiana, July 26:Deputy Commissioner  Varinder Kumar Sharma today clarified that no particular crematorium has been designated specifically for the cremation of dead bodies of Corona  victims in Ludhiana and family members can cremate bodies of their loved ones at any cremation ground they deem fit as per their own religious beliefs.


In a statement issued here today, Deputy Commissioner clarified that as per the protocol, all necessary precautionary measures of COVID have to be taken while cremating the bodies of Covid victims. He also clarified that there is no mandatory requirement to use either an LPG fuelled or electric crematorium for cremating the bodies as fuel wood can also be used. He said that in several other parts of the country and even in the other districts of Punjab , the cremation of dead bodies of Covid victims is being done using conventional fuel wood.


 He assured that the situation is completely under control and people should not panic. He said that for the welfare of residents and to ensure better coordination amongst district administration and private hospitals, a dedicated portal have been developed through which real time status of vacant beds in each hospital is being monitored so that in case, a particular hospital does not have vacant bed, the patient can be shifted to another nearby hospital. He assured the residents that now, no hospital would be able to hide information regarding the actual status of vacant beds. He said that the direct access of this portal is with Deputy Commissioner, Commissioner of Police and ADC (Development), besides the information is being shared with the private hospitals as well.
