Since the fifth wave of infections hit Hong Kong three months ago, there have been 1.13 million confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 7,358 related deaths as of Tuesday.⁠

“With crematoriums running for longer hours to cope with extra bodies, funeral workers have been working until nearly midnight,” said Hong Kong Funeral Business Association chairman Ng Yiu-tong, adding that workers who used to deal with four bodies a day before the fifth wave were now working on twice that number.⁠

“Mistakes may happen given the heavier workload,” he said.⁠

For most of March, about 200 people died every day from Covid-19 alone, besides deaths from other causes. That meant almost all the 250 to 300 coffins brought to Hong Kong from mainland China every day were used up.⁠
The Department of Heath said on Monday that 3,570 coffins arrived in the city between March 24 and 26, but Ng said they would meet demand for only two or three weeks.⁠
