NMC to provide 4 PPE kits to those who carry body to perform last rites at Nigam Bodh Ghat

Sunday, 22 November 2020 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NMC) will provide four Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Kits to those who carry the body to perform last rites at Nigam Bodh Ghat.

A senior NMC official said the corporation has earmarked 52 wooden pyres and three ‘Compressed natural gas’ (CNG) furnaces for last rites of Covid deaths.

“We have made adequate arrangements for cremation of bodies. The total number of bodies of Covid patients received is not more than 22 in a day for the last ten days. Twenty bodies of Covid patients came for last rites on Saturday. North Corporation also appeals to the citizens to come in less numbers with bodies for last rites as it will help in maintaining social distance. More rush may lead to spread of virus,” he added.

The Municipal Health Officer of North DMC has also asked his counterparts in other both corporations to ensure to route bodies to attached cremation grounds to the hospital as per the order issued earlier. The medical superintendents of Covid hospitals have also been asked to release bodies at intervals so that there is no rush at cremation ground at one point of time, he said.

Moreover, three new CNG furnaces are likely to start on Monday so six furnaces would be available for last rites, he said.
