Covid 19 and its Impact

A family member bows down his head in grief because one of his loved one died of Covid-19. The picture is from the Harishchandra ghat crematorium and the body can be seen wrapped in white plastic and orange fabric ready for the last rites. The place and surroundings felt really grim and unpleasant. People were terrified and were seen standing far away and only animals can be seen around.
