Recently, there have been various complications in burying the body of a person who has died of corona or similar symptoms across the country or the capital.

In case of death due to Coronavirus infection, the organization will provide free burial supplies free of cost. According to the Foundation, the necessary equipment and supplies for burial will be delivered to the relatives of the deceased through volunteers upon contacting these two numbers 01977 889 806 and 01917 707 771 or reaching out on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SAF.Dhaka).
