No last goodbye for Gulf migrant workers lost to virus pandemic
The body of the Indian migrant who died from coronavirus far from home was kept inside the ambulance in front of the New Sonapur Hindu crematorium in Dubai in case a friend came by for a last goodbye. A death from coronavirus means that the body cannot be sent home, and that it has to be cremated or buried in the country where the person dies. Millions of foreigners work in the United Arab Emirates and across the other wealthy Gulf nations, providing the backbone of the workforce in hospitals and banks, as well as on construction sites and in factories.
