This morning.

Via RTÉ:

The Irish Association of Funeral Directors (IAFD) has recommended that funeral services for any one who dies due to coronavirus should be postponed and the deceased should be immediately cremated or buried.

The IAFD has also advised that transport for families of the deceased should not be provided and that funeral instructions should only be given to undertakers over the phone.

…Earlier, the IAFD issued a statement saying it has issued a “guidance policy” to members and “it was not our intention to alarm the public or be insensitive to the trauma that loved ones may face should a member of their family die from the disease.”

Harsh but fair?

Or peak silly?

YOU decide.
