Rising deaths from COVID-19 in UK have put a heavy burden on funeral companies this winter. The death ratio rises in winter season, but has risen dramatically since corona virus, according to Yuden, director of burial company.
We bury 10 people a day during the winter season Director Yuden added, but now that number has risen from 15 to 16. Dozens of bodies lied in hospitals and old homes.
