Where did the Kenyan govt get the idea of hurriedly burrying the dead victims from Covid 19?

Hii nmetoa pale kwa WHO website.
COVID-19 is an acute respiratory illness caused by COVID-19 virus that predominantly affects the lungs;
• Based on current evidence, the COVID-19 virus is transmitted between people through droplets, fomites and close contact, with possible spread through faeces. It is not airborne. As this is a new
virus whose source and disease progression are not yet entirely clear, more precautions may be used until further information becomes available;
• Except in cases of hemorrhagic fevers (such as
Ebola, Marburg) and cholera, dead bodies are generally not infectious. Only the lungs of patients with pandemic influenza, if handled improperly during an autopsy, can be infectious. Otherwise, cadavers do not transmit disease. It is a common
myth that persons who have died of a communicable disease should be cremated, but this is not true.
Cremation is a matter of cultural choice and available resources;1
To date there is no evidence of persons having become infected from exposure to the bodies of persons who died from COVID-19;
• People may die of COVID-19 in the health care facilities, home or in other locations;
• The safety and well-being of everyone who tends to bodies should be the first priority. Before attending to a body, people should ensure that the necessary hand hygiene and personal protective equipment
(PPE) supplies are available (see Annex I);
• The dignity of the dead, their cultural and religious traditions, and their families should be respected and protected throughout;
Hasty disposal of a dead from COVID-19 should be avoided;
• Authorities should manage each situation on a case-by-case basis, balancing the rights of the family, the need to investigate the cause of death, and the risks of exposure to infection

But kusema ukweli this is a custom that should be adopted. Disco matanga ni kutajirisha mortuary owners na haina maana yoyote kuweka mwili siku saba.
Atusemi kueka mwili ni vizuri. All we are saying is give someone respect as the family would wish. Sio kuchimbiwa 1 foot grave na kutupwa na bodybag just because the family wasn't ready. Acha watu wazike mtu wao.

Ya hiyo si sawa. Mtu apewe heshima zake za mwisho

The reason why I love Muslim Burials, then come back later after 40 days for mourning. We should adopt and keep this trend of burying someone in less than 72 hours of his/her death.
Mtu huzikwa chap chap, then for 7 days family members come and assist the family...
The 40days is just cultural not even Islamic, but many people do it. It's actually prayers not mourning.

Nini kiliendelea?
A friend was sick with malaria and typhoid, he passed on his way to tenwek hospital where he had been referred from kaplong SubCounty hospital. The test allegedly showed he had Covid19. He was supposed to be buried by comrades in arms, but his burial was conducted by MOH officials, the rest of us were on the periphery.

WHO had said earlier that dead bodies are not effective but the Kenyan govt doesn't even want to understand,instead they wrap with a plastic bag.
