Bhubaneswar, April 7: Odisha government on Tuesday said that it will supervise the last rites of the persons dying due to COVID 19 infection to thwart any chances of spread of the global pandemic at this crucial time.

The government cited a recent directive from the Union government into this direction which laid out rules how to conduct last rites of persons who die from COVID infections. The state government claimed that as per the norms the last rites of persons dying due to COVID 19 infection will be done under the supervision of the state government as per rules framed by the Union government.

The Union government had issued directives for conducting the last rites of the persons die due to COVID 19 infection. The 72-year-old deceased died at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhubaneswar. The hospital after conducting their procedure as per the norms will now hand over the dead body to the state government.

The last rites of persons dying due to COVID 19 infections will be done completely under the directives of the Union government,” Subroto Bagchi, CHief Spokesperson of the government on COVID 19 said.

We are a bunch of like-minded people from the media who came forward to build a niche where important news affecting the people at large could be covered independently. This website has been envisioned to be a one stop centre for stories on different facets of the society which should ideally get space in the media but due to several reasons the mainstream media do not give them ample space. This website is trying to build that void. We are trying to report from the important developments from the eastern India with special focus on Odisha, West Bengal and the North East. This website was founded by some senior, mid and new budding journalists to cater to the needs of consumers of digital media which is unbiased, non dependent on government ads for survival and dare to report on the issues which should get ample space in the media and spark debate and discussions in the society. We have our representatives in New Delhi, Odisha, West Bengal, Chattisgarh and North East to cater to the needs of people from their region which are otherwise shunned by the national media. We have our head office at Bhubaneswar in Odisha
