Delhi Running Out Of Crematoriums, Public Park Converted To Cremation Ground Amid COVID-19 Second Wave

INDIA Team Latestly|

Load on Covid-19 designated crematoria is rising exponentially in Delhi. New pyre platforms are being set up in parking lots, empty grounds & even green belts abutting some major facilities, such as the one at Sarai Kale Khan. The three municipal corporations are desperately searching for additional sites to cater to the additional rush as several crematoria are operating on a day-and-night basis & way over their capacity. At least 50 new platforms are being constructed in the green space near the Sarai Kale Khan cremation facility in anticipation of an even heavier load. The Ghazipur cremation facility, too, has added 20 platforms in its parking lot even as 10 platforms were added in Wazirabad on April 25. East Delhi mayor Nirmal Jain said that the rise in the number of deaths was so huge that the pressure on the crematoria had increased tremendously & new pyres were being added on a war-footing, reported The Times Of India.
