The above somewhat absurd news confirms from one side the huge pressure brought by the sudden epidemic to the funeral industry of various countries. With the development of the epidemic situation, the news that the crematorium is overburdened comes from the areas used to cremation; there are reports that there is a shortage of coffins, shroud and other funeral supplies in the areas used to cremation; in order to avoid crowd gathering, some companies also timely launched online funeral services As poor families cant afford the high cost of funerals, Mexicans came up with the idea of renting coffins.

Pedro haramilo has been running a coffin factory for many years. According to him, coffin leasing has been an illegal underground industry in Mexico for many years. However, as the epidemic becomes more and more serious, more and more funeral companies have launched this service. Some black heart companies even use information inequality to rent coffins at a price far higher than the selling price. He also revealed that in some parts of central Mexico, cremation has gradually replaced burial, which gives smuggling gangs a chance. A metal coffin costs between 1700 and 4500 pesos (about 502 to 1331 yuan), while a second-hand coffin sold after cremation may cost as little as 150 to 200 pesos (about 44 to 59 yuan). Whether renting or buying second-hand goods, the reused coffins are not thoroughly sterilized, so it is likely that the virus will be transmitted to the workers who are responsible for carrying the coffins and handling the corpses, and even to the relatives and friends who attend the funeral.

On May 16, a third funeral company in Tijuana, on the border between Mexico and the United States, was shut down for failing to comply with health regulations during the outbreak. Mexicos National Committee for the protection of health risks (cofepris) believes the companys procedures for handling corpses are in violation. Novel coronavirus pneumonia was found in the garage of the company, and 12 other bodies were found to be cluttered with 10 other bodies. In addition, the companys air-conditioning system for corpses is set at 16 degrees instead of the official 4 degrees Celsius. The same thing happened all over Mexico. In addition to failing to meet the health requirements, some funeral companies were ordered to rectify due to unauthorized price increases during the epidemic and market disruption.
