Wuhan crematoriums are reportedly working around the clock to cope with the extra workload during the coronavirus outbreak.

It comes as the death toll from the virus climbed to 490 in China on Wednesday.

The bodies of victims who have died from the virus must be cremated rather than buried, China’s National Health Commission ruled on February 1.

A crematorium worker in the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak has revealed the long working hours he and his colleagues are putting in to transfer bodies from hospitals and private homes.

According to Mr Yun, at least 100 body bags are required every day. The bodies are collected from Wuhan’s three main hospitals plus other small hospitals, as well as private residences.

‘Since Jan. 28, 90 percent of our employees are working 24/7 … we couldn’t go back home,’ Mr Yun told The Epoch Times.

‘We really need more manpower.’

He explained that the funeral homes in Wuhan are struggling to cope with the influx of bodies. ‘Almost all staff at each funeral home in Wuhan are fully equipped, and all Wuhan cremation chambers are working 24 hours,’ he said.
