COVID-19: Guidelines on dead-body management

The main driver of transmission of COVID-19 is through droplets. There is unlikely to be an increased risk of COVID infection from a dead body to health workers or family members who follow standard precautions while handling the body. Only the lungs of dead COVID patients, if handled during an autopsy, can be infectious.

Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).” says the WHO.
Surface transmission is equally important. Virus survives from a few hours to a few days on any surface, so it is a contagious transmission which is also taken care of.
It is important to know by each Health worker how to manage dead body of COVID-19.Health workers should follow the guidelines provided
Yes guidelines are laid down
