As the All Souls Day holiday approaches, the cemeteries of Campo Grande should receive a large number of visitors. To avoid crowding, city hall teams will inspect the city’s cemeteries. Still in a pandemic, the question arises, is it possible to be contaminated with coronavirus approaching tombs or inside cemeteries?

One of the concerns to prevent the transmission of the virus has changed the routine of the wake and the speed in the routing of the bodies of the fatal victims due to the disease. The farewell at the funeral homes has a limited time and number of people in the chapel.

According to the nurse specialist in infectious diseases, Everton Ferreira Lemos, any space can have a viable presence of a virus. The transmission cycle occurs from person to person, and may be by indirect contact (contact with contaminated surface) or direct (close contact), there are chances of contamination.

“Depending on the location, the virus can stay alive for hours or days; cemeteries, therefore, may have contaminated surfaces, ”he explains.

Also according to the professional, it is important that during visits to the tombs, visitors avoid crowding, use masks, clean hands, avoid touching surfaces and the eyes or mouth.

“At home, when you return to clean your hands, shoes and clothes. During wake, avoid hugs and handshakes. Indoor environments increase the risk. If a person is infected, it can be transmitted from one person to another ”, he points out.

Guided by SES (State Health Secretariat), the municipality is that in addition to inspection, the units have a maximum capacity of 50%. Only visitation will be allowed, the chapels will only be opened for funerals and with controlled entry.
