Some small funeral practitioners are running out of cold storage, and struggling to find burial plots, as South Africa is overwhelmed by a surge in Covid-related deaths. Business Insider reports that in the past, small funeral parlours have rented cold storage space from local mortuaries and other undertakers, but these mortuaries are now packed. When it comes to burial space, the president of the National Funeral Practitioners Association of South Africa, Muzi Hlengwa, told the publication that they had been calling for the government to buy fresh land for a decade and said there were instances where people are buried on top of an already used grave, with some plots being recycled up to 7 times.
