Family shocked as woman believed to have died from Covid returns home two weeks after cremation

An Indian woman who was declared dead after contracting Covid-19 have shocked many after she returned home two weeks after her funeral.

 

Muktyala Girijamma, 60, had reportedly “died of coronavirus” in May. Her nephew, Nagu, told reporters that when they tried to visit her at Vijayawada Government General Hospital on May 15, they were told that she had died and had to be cremated.

 

Due to Covid guidelines, the family could only view the body from a distance and it remained tightly wrapped in plastic right up until the point of cremation.

“Believing it, we went to the mortuary to find her body where we were given the body of another woman. Since we could not verify the body before taking it as it was packed, we took the body home and performed the last rites.”
