Due to a lack of resources, the country has witnessed the number of COVID-19 deaths soaring. There are reports of several bodies of COVID-19 victims being stuffed in one ambulance while being taken to crematoriums due to a shortage in ambulances.
There is also a lack of slots in crematoriums in various States leading COVID-19 victims' relatives to take dire measures to bury or cremate their dead.
Bodies of COVID-19 victims can be seen kept in long queues for hours outside cremation grounds by family members, waiting for their turn. Several crematoriums have been turning away ambulances lined up outside, asking them to try and get a slot elsewhere.
Crematoriums have been running out of space and operating non-stop. Some crematoriums have even been resorting to performing mass cremations to manage the load.
