Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

As Covid-19 claims deaths more than 120 000 and infections at more than 1.9million, many countries that were the most hard by the pandemic found themselves having to practice unusual acts including mass graves and erecting of emergency graves.

While the number of infections is also increasing in South Africa now standing at more than 2 400 and number of deaths now at 27, various metros are also saying they are ready for mass graves should the need arise.

The South African Cemeteries Association (SACA) has urged municipalities to plan ahead.

City of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban are said to be the most hard hit metro municipalities in the country at the moment.
