Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said corpses of patients who test positive for COVID-19, will not be released to their families for burial.

Speaking at a NAN forum in Abuja, Mohammed explained that such bodies would be handled by the Health Ministry because they are contagious.

The Minister said: “Coronavirus is very dangerous and contagious; there is no medicine for it yet and it is not just capable of killing, overwhelming healthcare system, it will destroy the economy.

“In some countries, they are putting dead bodies in big refrigerators, because the morgues have filled up. Nigerians should not forget that these are not the type of corpses that can be claimed for burial because it must be handled by the ministry of health.”
