India reported a record 9,887 new coronavirus cases in one day on Saturday and overtook Italy as the world’s sixth-biggest outbreak, two days before the relaxing of a lockdown with the reopening of malls, restaurants and places of worship.

यद्यपि, भारतमा कोओविड १ from बाट मर्नेहरूको संख्या ,,19२ छ, यो अन्य देशहरूको तुलनामा सानो हो।

Nevertheless the mounting death toll in New Delhi has meant that traditional funeral pyres have been drafted in to burn the bodies of coronavirus victims in the Indian capital as crematorium furnaces struggle to keep up.

Smoke from the open-air blazes stings the eyes of waiting mourners and workers at Nigambodh Ghat, New Delhi’s biggest and oldest crematorium.

The rising number of bodies arriving from hospitals has forced the facility, situated next to the city’s historic Red Fort, to extend its opening hours. Funerals start at 8.00am and go on late into the night.

Authorities have ordered victims be incinerated in modern furnaces as a precaution against infection as anxiety grows over the spread of the disease.

But only three of six furnaces at Nigambodh Ghat are working, so for the past week, wood pyres, the traditional structures used in Hindu funeral rituals for thousands of years, have been allowed to help clear the backlog.

Suman Kumar Gupta of the crematorium management committee said families arriving for a funeral had to queue to pass through a “sanitation tunnel” at the entrance and then wait hours for the ceremony, prompting anxiety about the risk of infection.

“They want it to be faster, but we have only the three furnaces working,” said the official.

Pressure is being felt all around. Some ambulances are bringing four or five bodies at a time from hospitals where mortuaries are reportedly overloaded with virus victims.

In front of the furnaces, the mourners stand behind a screen, their masked faces revealing only eyes brimming with tears.

Narendra Vashisht, 68, waited two hours before he could peer through the glass at his brother’s body being prepared for its final moments.

“It has not been easy,” he said. “We had to keep asking them to hurry it up.”

Before the virus crisis, tradition-loving Indian families were wary of modern furnaces. Now they are scared of the illness and want a quick and efficient end.

प्रधानमन्त्री नरेन्द्र मोदीको सरकार, महामारीले कमजोर भएको अर्थव्यवस्था जम्प सुरु गर्न चिन्तित र लाखौं मानिसहरुलाई काममा फिर्ता लाउन, मार्चमा लगाइएको १.1.3 अरब जनसंख्याको तालाबन्दीलाई सहज बनाउँदैछ, जुन सरकारले भनेका छन कि यस घटनामा भएको वृद्धिको वृद्धिलाई रोक्न सकियो। ।

प्रतिबन्धहरू सोमबारबाट ढिलो हुनेछ तर केही विज्ञहरू चिन्तित छन् कि यो चाँडै नै हुनेछ।

सार्वजनिक स्वास्थ्य फाउण्डेशन अफ इण्डियाका महामारी रोग विशेषज्ञ गिरधर आर बाबूले विशेष गरी धार्मिक स्थलहरूको पुन: खोल्ने सवालमा प्रश्न उठाए।

“We can survive and sustain the gains without … opening up religious places for sometime,” Babu said on Twitter.

कन्सर्टहरू, खेलकुद कार्यक्रमहरू र राजनीतिक जुलुसहरू अझै प्रतिबन्धित छन्।

विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन (डब्लुएचओ) ले शुक्रवार शुक्रवार भारतको तालाबन्दीले यो रोगको प्रसारणलाई कम गर्न मद्दत गरेको बताएको छ, तर यस्तो अवस्था फेरि बढ्ने खतरा रहेको बताएको छ।

"भारत र अरु ठूला देशहरुमा खुल्ला र मानिसहरु बसाइँ सर्न थालेपछि यो रोगको जोखिम जहिले पनि हुन्छ," डब्ल्यूएचओको आपतकालिन कार्यक्रमका प्रमुख डा। माइक रायनले जेनेभामा एक पत्रकार सम्मेलनमा भने।

पूजास्थलहरूमा जाने मानिसहरूलाई उनीहरूको हात र खुट्टा धुनुहोस् भनिन्छ, र त्यहाँ अन्नबलि, पवित्र पानी छर्ने वा मूर्ति र पवित्र पुस्तकहरू छुने कुनै वितरण हुँदैन।
