Video of mass burials of Covid-19 patients goes viral

Jun 30, 2020 17:34 IST

A video purportedly showing health workers inappropriately burying bodies of Covid-19 victims in a large pit in Ballari district in Karnataka has surfaced, triggering an outrage on social media. In the video, the workers wearing personal protection equipment are seen bringing bodies in black sheets from a vehicle parked nearby and dropping one after another into the large pit, dug up with the help of an earthmover. The district which has so far reported 773 cases in the last three months has also witnessed a total of 23 deaths. Officials maintain the cremation has been done as per the government's instructions and all procedures are being followed.
