So they brought it to their village for cremation. But the villagers didn’t allow them to do it in their village.
Do you know why? They did not believe that cancer had killed the man. Then what did they think? They thought that the death certificate was fake, and the infection of coronavirus killed him. How could they behave so rude? They did so out of panic. Can you imagine the magnitude of fear coronavirus spread in the minds of the villagers?
