Description

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted our burial practices: funerals were to be held in small parties, online, or were not possible at all during different stages of the pandemic. Medical concerns focused not only on the funeral guests, but also on the deceased. How do we deal respectfully with victims of, for instance, a viral disease? And what happens when one's religious or cultural tradition conflicts with the medical demands? How can a government respect the right to mourn and bury in the desired way, while also respecting public health concerns? What are the concerns about death care in times of crisis?
