No one can touch the body, packed in a plastic bag, and it will be placed on the grave with strings. Personal protective equipment is required for officials and family members attending a funeral.
Everything used by the victim would be discarded, and the isolation room was washed with phenethylamine to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
