Covid-19: Dozens Of Bodies Dumped On River Banks In India

The bodies of at least 40 people have washed up on the banks of the Ganges river in northern India, officials say.

The discovery, near the border between the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, was confirmed on Monday.

It is not clear how the bodies came to be there, but local media reports suggest they may be Covid-19 victims.

Some media reports say as many as 100 bodies have been found, and that their condition suggests they may have been in the river for several days.

“There is a possibility that these bodies have come out of Uttar Pradesh,” a local official, Ashok Kumar, told the the press after questioning local residents.

He said the remains would be buried or cremated.

Officials said the bodies appeared to be “bloated” and “partially burnt”, and that they may have ended up in the river as part of the practice of cremating victims of coronavirus along the river Ganges in Uttar Pradesh, India’s NDTV news channel reported.

Uttar Pradesh is India’s most populous state.

A second wave of the virus is ravaging parts of India, with deaths rising significantly in recent weeks. Most of the country’s crematoriums have run out of spaces.

The country is now the epicenter of the global pandemic.

India has recorded more than 22.6 million coronavirus cases and 246,116 Covid-related deaths since the start of the pandemic, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
