AIIMS-Bhopal Director Sarman Singh stated they are looking into infection spread from bodies
A group of scientists from AIIMS in Bhopal is conducting a research study to check whether coronavirus infection can spread from the bodies of individuals who have actually died due to the extremely contagious viral infection.
There have been reports of people – even by families – not offering dignified burial or cremation to those who have actually died of COVID-19 due to fear of infection. In July, 8 bodies thought to be of those who passed away of COVID-19 and wrapped in plastic sheets were seen being tossed into a common pit for burial in a troubling video in Karnataka’s Ballari district.
” Preliminary findings haven’t exposed presence of the virus on the body’s surface area or its reproduction on the body’s surface, which is in line with the scientific viewpoint,” AIIMS-Bhopal Director Professor Sarman Singh informed NDTV.
” The primary findings of histopathology and other analysis suggest that the vascular system is the worst struck by the virus. It subsequently triggers coagulation and leakage in blood vessels, which resultantly set off apoplexy, lastly triggering the client’s death,” stated the Director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences or AIIMS.
” It’s also being seen that some patients who were currently dealt with for COVID-19 died later on due to accommodations of thrombos,” Teacher Singh told NDTV.
” There isn’t any evidence or record about bodies of unique coronavirus clients spreading infection amongst healthy individuals. There only have actually been anecdotal referrals about individuals who attended funeral service of COVID-19 clients, later turning favorable for the exact same viral infection, but no proof has actually been on record to establish that those people contracted the deadly infection from the body only,” the chief of the leading medical institute said.
The perception that coronavirus could spread out of the bodies of those who died of the infection has led to numerous events of undignified handling of bodies.
A disturbing video from Andhra Pradesh in June revealed an earthmover being utilized to bring the body of a 72- year-old coronavirus victim from the healthcare facility to the crematorium.
As early as March the centre released guidelines for managing bodies of COVID-19 victims. Among those standards is one that states: “Place the dead body in leak-proof plastic body bag. The exterior of the body bag can be decontaminated with a one percent hypochlorite solution”.
Over 91,000 have died in India due to coronavirus infection.
