Islamabad (Monitoring Desk) Scientists in Thailand and China have claimed for the first time a case of a corona virus being transmitted from a dead body to a living person. In a letter published in the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, scientists told that this is the first case of the new corona virus disease, Covid-19, that appeared in a person involved with the staff of a forensic medicine unit and he died as a result of the disease.
In a letter written by experts from Bangkok’s RVT Medical Center and the Chinese Vuanquet of Hainan Medical University in China, the identity of the victim in this case was not disclosed, it is stated that he was a forensic practitioner in Bangkok. Scientists do not yet know how long the corona virus can survive in the body after the death of a patient. The letter states that after the death of covid-19 patients in Thailand, there is usually no inspection of the dead body, so it is difficult to get a clear picture of the situation.
Scientists wrote that at this time there is no data on the exact number of people who died of covid-19 because in Thailand, dead bodies are not inspected.
However, they said there was very little chance that a forensic medicine specialist could suffer from the virus as a result of an infected patient, but they could be infected with biological samples and bodies.
He advised the forensic workers to use protective clothing, but also said that during the examination of the bodies, the same surgical principles should be adopted by the leading medical workers.

According to guidelines released by the World Health Organization, germs from men are unlikely to be transmitted to living humans, since most germs do not survive in the human body after death.
However, Precautionary measures are being taken in place of traditional customs regarding the funeral and burial of corona virus victims worldwide, including Pakistan. In Pakistan, regular guidelines have been issued regarding the funeral and burial process of corona virus victims. Under these guidelines, appropriate protective clothing will be used to give bath for the deceased while ensuring social distance and ensuring the participation of fewer people during the burial. In fact, in many countries, relatives are not allowed to attend the funeral but only 4 to 6 people attend.
