At the press conference held last Thursday, the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment was asked what are the protocols for the final rites of persons who died as a result of COVID-19, outside of the protocols related to mass gatherings.

In replying, Epidemiologist Dr. Charmaine Bailey-Rogers, Registrar in the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment noted:

“In response to the question concerning the arrangements for burial for persons who have died of COVID-19, we would just like to say that the funeral homes have been trained to collect and to handle the bodies appropriately. And that burial is usually closed-casket.”

Six (6) persons, three (3) females and three (3) males all over the age of 45 have since died as a result of COVID-19 here in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
