- In recent days, Beijing’s official crematoriums for Covid-19 patients have been swamped with deceased bodies, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Beijing: As a result of the relaxation of Covid-19 regulations, China is currently facing an explosive rise in coronavirus cases. According to Eric Feigl-Ding, epidemiologist and health economist, Chinese hospitals are utterly overburdened by this virus outbreak.
According to the epidemiologist, it is probable that over 60% of China and 10% of Earth’s population will contract the virus within the next 90 days. Tragically, this could result in millions of deaths.
As the coronavirus continues to spread throughout Beijing, one of its designated crematoria for Covid-19 victims has been overwhelmed with bodies in recent days – a dire sign of the potential human toll as China relaxes pandemic restrictions. This was reported by Wall Street Journal (WSJ).
The goal of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), according to Feigl-Ding is, “let whoever needs to be infected, infected, let whoever needs to die, die. Early infections, early deaths, early peak, early resumption of production.”
Since the announcement of four Covid-related fatalities between November 19 and 23, Beijing has not reported any additional deaths due to Coronavirus. The State Council’s Information Office was unavailable for comment when contacted on Friday night.
According to reports from WSJ, the Beijing Dongjiao Crematory on the eastern edge of China has seen a dramatic spike in requests for cremation services and other funeral-related activities. People who work at this facility have noticed a clear increase in demand over recent weeks.
On Friday, a woman picked up the phone at the crematorium, said, “Since the Covid reopening, we’ve been overloaded with work.” She further added, “Right now, it’s 24 hours a day. We can’t keep up.”
The woman exclaimed that the Dongjiao Crematory, operated by Beijing municipality and officially assigned to manage Covid-positive cases was so inundated with bodies that it had been forced to cremate them during the pre-dawn hours and late into night. “There’s no other way” she declared sadly.
Working tirelessly, the crematorium staff estimated that around 200 bodies are being brought in daily, usually 30-40 on average days. Unfortunately this has caused a lot of extra strain and exhaustion for them as several members have recently contracted the virus in recent weeks due to their close proximity with those infected by it.
