Delhi authorities getting requests to cut down trees in parks to fuel funeral pyres

New Delhi, April 28, 2021 (PPI-OT): Officials in Delhi, India, are getting requests to cut down trees in city parks to help fuel cremations as COVID-19 cases and deaths skyrocket across the country. Wooden pyres are used in India to cremate a body as part of a funeral rite. But as more people continue to die from COVID-19 in India, more wood is needed to fuel the pyres.

India’s surging case count of COVID-19 infections is growing at the fastest pace in the world, and on Sunday the country recorded more than 350,000 new COVID-19 cases, breaking a world record for daily COVID-19 cases for the fifth day in a row. – Courtesy Business Insider
