Across the Middle East and parts of South Asia, bereaved families have faced traumatic restrictions on burying their dead amid the pandemic. Religion and customs that require speedy burials in the largely Muslim region have clashed with fears of COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, and government-mandated lockdowns.
As the regional death toll surpasses 4,500, ancient rituals — bodies solemnly washed by relatives, wrapped in white shrouds and buried as quickly as possible with large crowds of mourners in attendance — are being disrupted by the growing outbreak. In Egypt, where funerals were once an affair bringing dozens of families together in prayer, strict limits have put a cap on attendees. With faces covered in masks, they now bid farewell to loved ones interred in bags stamped “Danger!” In the Middle East, this often means religious rites must be modified or canceled.

Coronavirus is testing the limits of Russia's surveillance state - Latest Covid 19 Corona Virus News, Corona Updates and Deals.
Russia’s Nizhny Novgorod region, about 250 miles northeast of Moscow, boosted its coronavirus-control measures Saturday by adding a system of downloadable QR codes — those square bar code mazes of lines and boxes — in the latest attempt to use tracking technology to battle the pandemic.

The decision came as Moscow’s mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, acknowledged that “a huge number of questions arose” about requiring a QR-code pass to move around the city.
